Sorry to neglect you all, but we've been sicky in our house over the last week. With snotty noses to tend to, and nursing strikes to deal with, and everyone feeling yucky in general, there just hasn't been a lot of time to blog!
Growly Bear work up last week with a horrible cough that freaked me out so much, we took her to see the Dr. The very nice man we saw was extremely sweet, and didn't for a second make me feel like an overreacting new mother. He put my mind at ease by telling me she was fine, and it was just a nasty cold, but be sure to bring her back in if it got worse, of if I was still worried in a couple of days.
The next day my hubby woke up with the crud, and me the day after that. We've been a household of snotty, coughing, grossness. Thank goodness we've been blessed with the worlds happiest sick baby! Despite all her coughing, and sneezing, and stuffed up little nose, she's been her happy, giggly, playful self. Here's a picture to prove it:
I set Growly Bear up in her Jumparoo, and sat down on the couch with a glass of water to be lazy and play on FaceBook for a while. As I reached for my laptop, which was sitting on the coffee table beside the glass of water, I knocked the tall water glass over, and spilled it all over me, the rug at my feet, and it splashed all under the cough. So much for a relaxing moment!
I grabbed a towel, moved the coffee table out of the way, and got down on the floor to dry it up. I looked under the couch to make sure I got all the water, and wow! You'll never guess what I found.... Another Dust Doggie colony, (which is funny because I ALWAYS stick the wand of the vacuum under there at least once a week... Those things are sneaky!) as well as an assortment of "goodies"
Warning, contents may shock you:
1. Red Pen
2. Missing sewing scissors (which have been missing for ages, and I was quite PO'ed seeing as they retail at about $40!)
3. Chocolate of all kinds - Aero Bar, Smarties, a Kinder Egg, Chocolate Chips, a Chocolate from our Advent Calendars..... etc
4. A toy cell phone
5. A Sucky
6. An assortment of garbage, including an empty candy container
7. Hubby's missing socks
8. Dust Doggy colony, which I decided to spare you from and sucked up before I took this photo.
I know what you're wondering, and NO I didn't eat that chocolate bar (yet). I threw almost all of that chocolate away....
One good thing that came out of this all, other then the fact that it forced me to clean under my disgusting cough, was that I now know that answer to my husbands question when he asks me where all his socks are. "Under the couch!" The same answer also seems appropriate for when he asked me if we have anything in the house to snack on! Ew....
Off to bed now my friends!
Love and Hugs
