I miss you!
I have been just having to write blogs in my head, which is not helpful. Thoughts. must. get. out. Too many thoughts running around make me a little crazy and unable to remember important things that need to be taken care of.
Last night I was awakened at 3:30 by Lilly. "Mom, can you come here?"
"No Darling, it is the middle of the night still."
"I threw up."
"Be right there, please make it to the bathroom."
Of course, last night I stayed up late going through summer clothes trying to see if we actually have summer clothes that can still be worn by everyone. (We do, bless-ed hand-me-downs). I had no idea anyone would wake up in the middle of the night sick. I am really tired and the bug has moved onto child number two. I did not allow child number two to go to church because her tummy was a little upset. I promised if she was not sick after church, she could do the booth sale. When I got home from church, she felt great. Ten minutes into COOKIE BOOTH SALE, she promptly "tossed her cookies" into the nearby trashcan. She was a trooper sitting there in the freezing wind and deceptively unwarm bright sunshine for almost an hour. Erik could not come and get her because Lilly felt so bad and was still throwing up. God sent my nephew by, I don't think Kayla had another ten minutes in her. Her teeth were chattering. It is hard to have a virus in the freezing cold. He ran her home. She is forever grateful.
I am very thankful that we have plenty of time for this to work through the family before vacation. Lilly was in tears thinking this sickness would cancel vacation. IT WOULD NOT. We might not visit anyone, but we would still totally go and infect strangers. Vacation comes but once a year. I trust other people are out there doing the same or these things would not travel around to begin with!
I wrote a whole post last night reviewing the new Beth Moore book early and my cat jumped down on the power switch and I lost the post. That has NEVER happened before(the cat thing-I've lost many a long-winded post!). I don't think I am going to review it after all, since I think she truly does have much "pull" with God. Maybe I should re-read it and then review it again, much more favorably. ( ;
