January 12-18

Wow! What a week. I missed a couple more days this week, but we had lots of sickness and I just didn't get them done. The quality of the last three is pretty bad since they were taken with my phone. I did the best I could with what I had!!

January 12 This is Lance counting his money. We are trying to be better this year about making the kids do chores and in return, they get a small allowance.

January 13 Allie decided she wanted to take a bath today and actually used her bathroom (instead of mine). I wasn't paying attention to the water level and Jeff noticed that it was only a couple of inches from overflowing. She was happy though!!

January 15 Day one of the sickness and the long weekend. Lance had the day off from school started it off by complaining of his tummy hurting. He thought he was better, so we went to McDonald's to meet some friends for lunch. We had been there long enough to get food and make it to the table and he was ready to go home. He spent the rest of the day on the couch, between visits to the bucket on the floor to get sick. Not much of a fun day off school!

January 17 Day one of Allie being sick. Ugg!! Lance's sickness lasted about eight hours, but took a couple of days to really recover. We went to our friend's house for a football party and came home, everyone happy (well, except for Allie who wanted to stay LOL). A couple of hours later, she was complaining her tummy hurt. And so began my very long night on the couch with a three year old going between sleep and completely freaking out because she didn't want to throw up, but needed to. It finally ran it's course at about 3:30 in the morning and by 7:30 when she woke up, she was ready to make up for those hours she lost!

January 18 Unfortunately for her (fortunately for me), she was exhausted from the late night. We laid on the couch together and napped for a couple of hours. Something that hasn't happened in a couple of years!


  1. Your kiddies are cute! So sorry for all the sickness, though. Ick.

    I'm linking your Project 365 to my blog. Fun stuff.

  2. This is a very interesting post, and the comments are also fantastic to read. I’ll have to have a little re-think about my own contact form on our new website, as this poses some interesting questions!
