Still SO missing normalcy

I just keep wondering when I'll get back in the swing of things. As in love as I am with the new house, our little construction zone inside has put quite a damper on things, (I'm hoping they'll be done with it by the end of next week-- silver lining: we're getting more tile in the entry where we had a ton of carpet... as a little compensation.) We haven't found a good spot for our dying computer (it has to be plugged in at all times with a tube of desitin propped under the chord to keep it tight.) We can't seem to get Sophia to bed until after 8 here which means our nights seem to get shorter and shorter, which means, less blogging. And of course we can't seem to get healthy. So we're finishing up our antibiotics, getting over strep just fine, when I wake up yesterday morning at 3 am to stick my head in the toilet bowl.... only to repeat every 30 min to an hour until 7 pm last night. The worst part about it, Ross flew to Newark yesterday morning for work so I was alone. Luckily, Kodi took Sophia for a couple of hours again (I know I know, do YOU have friends like that? You should go get you some.) And my dad came over after work, cleaned my messy kitchen, entertained Sophia for that last hour of her day, and watched American Idol with me after the girls went down. It pays to have family move close by. Now we just have to convince them to stay as the temperature rises.

So then last night, Sophia came in my bed at 2 am saying she was sick, threw up a tiny bit in the toilet (she kept running back and forth sticking her head in the bowl, I think she had taken some notes from me.) She's definitely a little off, but we're going to see if we can't get loaded up and drive to San Diego today (as was our plan yesterday). Big empty houses at night are not my thing and Ross is gone through Friday.

Pretty sure I'm all over the place, don't really have time to proof-read, just feeling the need for an update.

Awesome. Sounds like so much fun!

Kirk will be so happy to have sick ones (he he he [insert kirk laugh]).

Are you sure you aren't pregnant again?

Oh Lillie! I'm so sorry. That is terrible. What great friends you have out there though, so great, but still that nauseous throw-up all day is SO not something you should have to deal with after the house and Ross being gone.

Hope you can get the SD today!

Whenever Ryan leaves, we all fall apart. Something breaks, mass vomiting, a signature is needed: always something. I hope you finally feel 100% soon. I'm glad they are giving you some compensation for all the misery you have been through.

Thanks for updating Lil. We have really missed you. Even though we understand how crazy life must be with two kids and a new house and illness we still miss hearing about your adventures. I hope you have a great time in San Diego and that you don't get mom sick!

Lillie I am so sorry...Sometimes it takes forever (at least it seems that way to me) to get all the germs out of the house. I hope you can make it to San Diego without getting to sick. Feel better soon. Call if you need any help.

I appreciate Biesinger updates.

Very sorry you're so sick! I have felt like I needed to BARF for over a week now but haven't. And no, I'm not pregnant either. It sucks feeling so crappy and still having to be a mama. And, I'm basically doing it solo for a few days, too. No fun.

Enjoy San Diego.

Wow, best of luck to you, I HOPE you can recover from all this. And not being able to enjoy your house is annoying. Thinking of you---

are you feeling better yet? is ross home safe, making you feel better?

i feel like you've had more than your fair share of yuckiness lately. get that rain cloud out from above your head! (and when you figure out how, tell me so I can get the one gone from above mine. :) mine is mainly attitude though...just "snow in may" blues.)

hopefully this is the beginning of a very wonderful, happy, blissful month. :) or at least one without puke.

I was hoping your house was put back together by now, so I'm sure it's getting so frustrating for you. At least you are finding the positive's. I'm sorry you've been sick; it seems like it's going around a little bit. Hopefully you had a great weekend and got to relax a little bit. It's fun to catch up with your cute family. Hope things look up for you this week!
