Well my plan to run last week went south pretty fast. I had no specific plan for the week other than to run a few times, celebrate two special birthdays and travel for work. That all changed rapidly!
Hilary decided to party the night before her 2nd birthday and go sick everywhere!!! We went through 5 pairs of her pj’s and a few of mine as she got sick over me 😦 Better on me then the carpet! Thank goodness Sai was home because he did 2 loads of laundry that night as I held puky-puky girl for a few hours. Not much sleep happened that night.
Then it hit the rest of the family – HARD! Lilly, me and then Sai. The unlucky part was that I was driving my car when I got stick everywhere….I can’t even express how gross this was. However, I was SO thankful that at lunch time I had bought a massive box of baby wipes for Hilary and used almost one full package on me and the car.
Sorry – No Photo of my car.
We managed to pull it together and everyone was feeling better so we went ahead with a birthday party Saturday for Hilary and had a lot of fun. Then after indulging in a dinner out with the whole family, Lilly got sick again while she slept (yes parent panic was high) and I wasn’t feeling 100% but managed the night fine. Must remember to stick to Bread, Applesauce, Rice and Toast (BRAT) for more than 1 day post sickness.
Another six loads of laundry done and I think we are heading in the right direction. So no running, no yoga, no drawing challenge this past week. I couldn’t even manage a birthday dinner for Sai who turned 3X….I’ll just leave that last number blank but it’s really close to 40!
The girls did manage to decorate one of our doors with Grammy!
How’s your holiday shopping going?
Anyone run a Santa Shuffle/Elf Run/Ugly Sweater Run?

Well that is a rude party… I hope she feels better! Your string cheese is on point, though, that door is so cute.
We are all finally feeling better! (Thank you). The cheese strings were a hit!
Oh no! So sorry the little one and you are sick 😦 Also, I have got to remember the BRAT thing for when I’m sick! Good tip!
I’m not doing a Santa run, but I am doing a 10K on New Year’s Eve. Should be fun!! 🙂
I will never forget BRAT after we all went through that! Ha ha. 10k on New Year’s Eve – what a way to ring in the new year! Enjoy!
Oh man, what a weekend! I hope you all are really feeling better now. Sounds like an epic adventure. I do love the door decoration.
We are on the mend, thank goodness! It was a crazy adventure that’s for sure.
Hope this week goes smoothly and everyone feels better!
So far so good!
Aw no! Sorry to hear that you were so ill!
I havent seen Bugles since I went to Tunisia 4 years ago! they look lovely!
I ate them as a kid but didn’t seem them for years! I’ve only bought them a few times because you can only eat so many! I should send you some 🙂 (seriously, if you want some let me know)
Thank you! Maybe in the new year that would be great! 🙂
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send some off to you 🙂
Are you sure? Is there anything British you want sending over? I don’t think we have anything exciting like!
Sure, why not! It would be fun to send a little bugle package along 🙂
I don’t know what to ask for. My husband is British so we get a few things here and there every so often. Surprise me 🙂
Hope she feels better soon 🙂
I did a Santa Shuffle on Sat
We are thanks DAwn! How was the Santa Shuffle?
I see that you are doing the Hypo Half! I’m thinking about it but the course they are having it on here is pretty icy so I’m on the fence!
Awww – sorry you guys got sick! The perils of having children. I have gotten sick in my car too – I feel your pain.
I am done with runs for 2014. I plan to do a run on 1/1 though!
Oh my goodness, that was the worst experience ever! At least I was able to get it professionally cleaned.
mmmmm, those santa hat bugle things were too awesome… yummm!
Funny, I only had one or two of them so I’ll have to make another batch to make sure they taste as good as they look 😉
