i quit

i could feel a cold coming on yesterday as the day wore on...the boys shared it with me, i guess.
and pat was going to be later than usual last night.

so, in an attempt to get through the afternoon/evening with everyone smiling, i came up with a plan...
{don't worry...this turns out NOTHING like yesterday's plan :-)}

we walked to the grocery store.
the kids got to pick out dinner...the only rule was no candy.
then we had a picnic dinner watching the olympics that we had taped from the night before.

they picked chicken nuggets and french fries {kinda thought they'd pick something else...but fine with me.}
i think this is the only moment he sat.
most of the time i was managing him not stepping on everyone else's plate.

this is what i got for dinner...yum.
{i shared a little bit with bailey...she loves quacamole...isn't that funny??}

they were in bed...silent...at 7:30. and i was on the couch...D.O.N.E. at 7:31 pm.
and proceeded to work my way through an entire box of kleenex over the next couple hours.
ugh.

thankfully, i slept fine.
but, stupidly, i got up and ran this morning...somehow made it through.

all we have today is ballet {and school for R and J and a playdate after school for joshua...it's funny how that used to seem like a lot and now it seems like an "easy" day}
i was looking forward to trying to lay low and rest {i know, i know...yea right!}

until bailey walks up to me a couple minutes ago and says, "mom...do you see something in my ear?"
no.
"well, this part is in my ear."

right.
headed to the dr...again...

i quit.

{jb-don't even think it...i'll be there tonight no matter what!!! i can't WAIT!!!!}

Oh good grief! Mom's can't quit, don't you know? I think we should trade for a couple of days so you can rest! I hope your cold doesn't get much worse.
Mason is asleep in my bed with a fever (11a.m.). Not sure what is going on. SAD!
