When Things Go Down Hill Fast

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.


Santa’s Hats (bugles dipped in dark chocolate) – Big hit at the party!

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?Β

  1. 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!! πŸ™‚

    • 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!

  2. 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!
