Friday morning, the boys had appointments to get their teeth cleaned, and since we were there, I let the dentist
Then it was on to the grocery store (with all five kids in tow, to get some milk, eggs, bread and other basics), then to Taco Bell for some bean burritos (being a day of abstinence), back home to put away the groceries and wrap a birthday gift, then back to town to meet up with hubby and drop the 4 oldest off for a birthday party, during which hubby and I went to a hockey game!
It happened to be Snuggles first hockey game (post-pregnancy, that is!) and he enjoyed it. I enjoyed it too, however, I think I would have had a better time if I could have focused on the puck! At that point I was starting to feel very sickish! Luckily we were able to sit in the warm fireside room, which was nice and we even ran into my dear midwife who delivered (or rather I delivered and she "caught") all 5 of our kids! Actually she would tell you that hubby caught Rascal... She just helped... Anyhow, I hadn't seen her since Snuggles was born!! Her husband happens to be a die hard hockey fan, too. We are hoping to get together and take the kids ice-skating sometime soon.
After the game, it was back to pick up the kids, and head home. By the time we got home I collapsed on the bed with a 103 degree temp. Hubby took care of everything else, and sometime in the night, I woke up to find ice packs all over me. Isn't it nice, to be taken care of sometimes?
Saturday morning, since hubby had to work, he asked my parents to take the kids for the day (which is a rare treat, although it seems to be getting less rare lately!! Thank you so much MOM!!) so I could finish up a couple more months of my aunt's bookkeeping which HAD TO BE DONE by Monday. It's amazing what you can accomplish with only an infant in the house! I picked up the kids at 5pm and when we got home, all four collapsed on the couch:
I need to send them to Grandma's house more often!
Today consisted of lots of rest and chicken soup. Hubby took the kids to Mass and made me stay home since I was still running a fever.
However, tonight I am starting to feel somewhat back to normal (other than a lingering cough). Thank you all for your prayers!!
Speaking of prayers, last night, as the kids were going to bed, Twinkle Toes came up to me and said, "Momma, I will pway for you, wuv you, and take care of you, o-kay!?"
How could I not get better?!?
Soooo, What did you do this weekend???
