I'm not sure what I was planning today, but it certainly didn't look like what happened.
I took Emma to SEEK before school this morning. She complained of a scratchy throat and an upset stomach before we left, but I sent her anyway. Exactly 30 minutes later, I got a call from Emma saying she was sick and wanted to come home. So I dropped Elizabeth off at school and picked Emma up in one swoop. Go me.
A little snooping later, I think the real reason for the "sick symptoms" was probably due to a flashlight and book found in Emma's bed. Who knows how late she was up. Anyway, after a rest, she was rearing to go. I reminded Emma that she was technically home sick, and she did not get to go outside and play, or anything super fun.
We did watch Harry Potter 2, and do a couple of quieter activities. Just before Daddy got home, we got the nail polish out and I cut and painted the twins' nails. Emma was next. I thanked her for being patient, and started painting her nails. Part way through painting her toe nails, she was swinging her other foot and she totally spilled a whole lot of nail polish on our living room rug. Gah!!!!!!!!
Literally 5 seconds later, Ryan walked through the door.
Between Ryan, myself, a bottle of carpet cleaner, 3 towels and a whole lot of elbow grease, we got our rug cleaned.
Once that catastrophe was adverted, Ryan and I talked about going to Lowes (a half hour away) to pick up a new set of living room blinds (as I killed the one we have about a week ago. Somehow opening the blinds on a daily basis is hard usage on cheap blinds.). We would make an early dinner and then go.
As I was making dinner, Elizabeth informed us that her 1st grade concert was tonight.
Seriously? How did I miss that? All righty then. In my defence, I don't think they sent home ANY notices before the one today. I swear I read them all. I think?
We arrived early. I sent Elizabeth up to the front and we found our seats. As we waited, Maddie said she needed to go potty. Ryan took her. About a minute later, I got a text from Ryan saying puking was imminent.
So I took a bunch of pictures for Ryan. He missed Elizabeth's concert.
I want this flu bug to be over. So. Very. Much.
Elizabeth did a great job. She did the actions with the songs, and better than most. She was even facing forward most of the time. :)
Sorry these last couple of posts have been downers. It's been a rough ride.
