Take two kleenex and call me in the morning

So the run of good health we were enjoying came to a screeching halt Friday.  Turbo has a nasty cold--sore throat, cough and fever.  The fever is over now but the coughing continues.  The poor kid sounds like he is hacking up a lung.  He did lose his voice on Saturday.  Too bad he felt to bad for us to enjoy the quiet.  THen to top it all off last night he threw up.  From all the coughing mostly.  He is at home, miserable, on the couch, watching Boomerang.  Nick is with him.
Bruiser is still feeling good--active.  He is happy being Bruiser.  Although, I could do without his new thing of getting up at 6:15am.
Nick is going to physical therapy for his foot--hope it helps.  The hobbling around is no fun.
I cooked this weekend--Shrimp and sausage jambalaya and a crock pot chicken cacciatore.  The jambalaya was way better then the cacciatore.  The Jambalaya was easier to make than I thought it would be and tasted better than I thought it would too.  The migraine went away by Friday evening--good thing because I got to take care of Turbo.  Being mom is so much fun.
All in all it was a quiet weekend.  It was cold enough out to keep us indoors--mostly.  Nick did spend part of Saturday dismantling the old camper we had.  He's hoping to turn it into a utility trailer.  Our neighbor does salvage and makes regular trips to Denver to recycle things like aluminum and copper.  He will be taking the aluminum from the old camper for recycling.  He gets the money for recycling and we get to feel good for not sending it to the dump.  Hopefully this will start a period of home projects for Nick.  We really have not done a lot of stuff around the house recently--except for the have to stuff--dishes, laundry, cleaning stuff, etc.
So how did your weekend go?  Excitement?   Or just another quiet weekend?


  1. Well it totally sounds like my weekend! Except that I didn't make jambalaya, which sounds like a truly excellent idea. Maybe a quick trip to the store...

  2. I hope everyone is feeling better soon!

  3. As you know, my weekend started before I expected it to. But mostly good and less housework since the majority of it was done on Friday as I imagined germs attacking me.

  4. I'm sorry to hear that Turbo was sick. I hope he feels better soon.

  5. Isn't it funny that even when you say you've been kind of lazy, you can still have a whole list of things you did, that "don't count" because they have to get done?!
    Oh the life of a mother!

  6. Hope Turbo feels better soon. It seems like it is going around.

  7. Hope everyone feels better quickly!

  8. Hope everyone feels better. Our weekend was a blur of naps and spit-up but at least we are warm. It's freeeeeeeezing outside!

  9. The work of a mamma is never done huh! Hope he is feeling better. Mine finally are... THANK YOU GOD!!!

  10. So sorry :(. We are cycling through and sharing germs at my house. No throwing up though-knock on wood.

    Hope everyone is better soon

  11. Yuck. Is everyone better yet?

    I had a great time with friends at a casino on Saturday night. We don't spend much money but we always have a great time.

    And the Packers won which means they're going to the Superbowl! This made my hubby giddy! =)
