Delivery Day

Today and tomorrow, the Mister is away, staying in a big fancy room at a swanky hotel, where there's a fancy pool with potted palm trees. He is there for business; the children and I were going to be there for a little getaway.

Until, Mom got sick.

A sinus infection, right ear infection, fever and chills is keeping me down for the count. Poor Hatfield had the same thing, but she recovered much more quickly.

I scored with the fact that the next door neighbor teen/babysitter is on Spring Break with nothing to do. So I hired her to come and play with the kids, while I laid in bed and slept.

Then I awoke, showered, and hobbled my stuffy, medicated head into both the Post Office and Target.

At Target, my "I-ruined-my-family's-vacation" guilt enticed me to make an impulse purchase of the movie Bolt.

I love Rhino. He's so darn cute.

And if that wasn't enough, I then ordered Chinese Delivery for dinner.

The kids loved it.
They raved
and oohed
and aahed
(we rarely eat out/get delivery,
so it's an extra special treat
when we do),
and each had two helpings.

I couldn't smell or taste the deliciousness.

Now I am counting down the hours until bedtime.

And until the Mister returns home.

And until I can breathe again out of both nostrils.

Although right now, I'd happily settle for one.

Oh Sarah! I'm SO sorry!!! I probably gave it to you (over the phone) because that is EXACTLY what I had :( I hope you feel better soon my dear and I'm sorry that you missed the swanky hotel stay, I know you were looking forward to it. If we keep this up, we'll never see each other again!!! Let me know if you need anything, okay?

Love ya,
