After Grammy left, Payton was tired. Too tired to keep it together. She had a few meltdowns. Somehow they are still pretty cute and comical. The whole production, the throwing her doll, the lying down, the wailing....
I still felt "off" Monday and Tuesday but I went to work anyway. As a teacher, it is just too much work to miss work. Plus, I hadn't actually puked or pooped yet, soooooo. The sun was still shining so I figured we should take advantage. Monday afternoon when I realized I felt "ok" I texted marty to see about meeting up for a family adventiure. After school I picked up the kids and we met Marty and Scout at the Glenbow Ranch for an awesome bike ride/dog walk/stroller ride. Tuesday during my staff meeting I texted again, suggesting we all met up at the Cochrane Ranch. This time Marty, Ryder and I biked while I pulled Payton in the bike trailer. Love these kind of spontaneous adventures with my family!
Tuesday night the flu got a hold of me for real and I spent the night in the bathroom. I made a sub plan at 1:42am and spent the night on the toilet. No fun! I stayed home and slept all day Wednesday while the kids were at the day home. I felt quite a bit better by the time they got home. Payton and I even baked cookies after supper while Marty and Ryder practiced soccer outside.
I planned to go to work Thursday, today. I really wanted to and I really did not want to write another middle of the night sub plan...but Ryder woke up at 3am puking, so here I am. Home with my lil cutie. He's watching cartoons and I'm catching up on things like my blog and baking. Payton is home too...just incase she's sick too...so far she's not. Thank God! Here's hoping that by the weekend we will all be back to our energetic, happy, rested selves!!!
Kiss your babies, count your blessings and don't feel guilty watching Netflicks when you are sick, especially when the show you are watching has the hottest leading actor you've ever seen. (Check out White Collar!)
