Talking Tuesday

Hi everyone!  You might not want to stay here long.  We have been passing the sicks around like hot potatoes. I wouldn't want you to catch anything.  Well, you might be alright, just don't touch anything, OK?

  • I got sick Sunday night.  Like throwing up sick.  It was awful.  I spent yesterday tossing in bed trying to keep the nausea at bay.  I had to "watch" both boys.  Thank goodness they managed to be relatively self sufficient.
  • Why both boys?  Well, Saturday Turbo started coughing.  Poor kid sounded like he wanted to hack up a lung.  We took him to urgent care on Sunday because not only was he coughing, but he was running a fever.  the result was he has the flu and got a two day "vacation" from school.
  • Easter was good to the boys, despite the sicks.  They each had fun chasing down the eggs the sneaky bunny hid for them.  Bruiser devoured his chocolate bunny and had a serious case of chocolate overload and couldn't didn't nap.  We made a delicious dinner and enjoyed it.  Of course I tossed it all later.
  • We have started watching home improvement TV again.  Nick has started doing things around the house. I now have a back porch light.  We have plans to do lots more.  It good to be able to do stuff around the house again.  And it's oh, so nice that Nick is handy and can do most of the stuff we want to do.
  • Kids TV can be really inane.  Or completely idiotic depending on the age it's aimed at.  Some of the stuff Turbo watches seems to be just screaming and yelling.  Some of the stuff that Bruiser likes is just inane.  What happened to intelligent TV for the younger set?
  • Even with all we had happen over the weekend, I still got the laundry done.  It was whining so much I had to do something to shut it up. 
And with that, I'm going to wrap things up here today.  Go see Stacy for more randoms.

Oh yuck, sorry to hear you & the fam got the sickies for Easter! But at least the boys were still able to enjoy the hunt :)

Sorry to hear that you and Turbo aren't feeling well. It is hard when mom gets sick.

Well, it sounds like you're feeling better at least! The laundry in my home is launching an attack. I'm supposed to attack back tonight, but I keep wanting to go to sleep instead.

There are so many shows on TV for kids that I detest. And some aren't so bad; I dig that Ninjago show!

Stacy Uncorked said...

Oh you poor thing! This year has been horrible with boomerang colds and other sicknesses that sneak up on you when you least expect it. Hope you all are feeling better!

I had to chuckle over Bruiser couldn't/didn't take a nap after the chocolate overload - we had the same problem here with Little Dude...and I didn't even let him each chocolate, just jelly beans! :)

I absolutely agree on Kids TV being really inane. Too bad intelligent TV seems to have disappeared!

Thanks for reminding me that I've been ignoring my whiny laundry the past couple of days...I guess I better go shut it up. ;)

I hate throwing up almost as much as I hate the feeling of having to throw up.

Have a great rest of your RTT.

Yuck! Sorry to hear you were sick. The stomach flu is the worst! But props to you for still getting the laundry done, that's what I call being Super Momma!

There is nothing worse than getting the sickies especially during a holiday. I told you this earlier too.

My house is still covered in chocolate everywhere. I hope she forgets about it so I can throw it away.

Laundry has been the death of me lately. I'm so over it.

Thanks for linking up with us!

this unpredictable Winter has caused some a lot of sick this year. I can't wait to see what it did to the mosquitos.
You are so right about the TV. kids don't need dumbed down tv, but they also don't need swearing and the censor beep either.

Shawn said...

Uggg I'm sorry you've had a sick house, Honey's been down since Friday, no fun!

Each girl got one box of candy, the rest is fun summer stuff, swimsuits, jambes, iTunes cards...no one needs that junk in our house as wonderful as it is!

Thanks for linking up, hopefully by now everyone is feeling better!
