And So I blog/ Friday Feast.

I got up this morning, washed clothed, packed suit cases for 6 people to go away for the weekend, worked my bottom off trying to get everyone ready for there fun filled weekend.
DH, Princess and Myself heading south 3 hours for a fun filled weekend of fastpitch softball, a nice hotel with indoor and outdoor swimming and a weekend minus 3 little monkeys who don't much care for sitting still. A weekend where I could not only sit and "WATCH" a ball game without having to chase Little Man around, but also a weekend where I would get a super dark tan sitting at the ball field, and a weekend where I could lay around the pool without having to chase Little Man around and a weekend where I could go into a hottub with out my kids following me.
After school we were to pick the kids up and GO... dropping Mr Man off at my grandparents who were going to keep him over night and take him to his baseball game tomorrow. Then dropping Sweet Pea and Little Man off at my parents because my mom had asked for the kids for the weekend. Then we were off for my almost kid free weekend.(almost because I still had Princess but caring for an 11 year old is ALOT easier then a 2 year old 5 year old and 7 year old)
I was packed and ready to go.. I had about 1 1/2 hours before we left..

THEN I GOT THE CALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"This is so and so from name of school, I have Mr Man here in the office with me. I'm not sure what his temperature is yet because we are still taking it, but it is already up to 102.8, we will need you to come pick him up"

so I picked him up from school early, and took him to the doctor where he still had a 104.2 fever after having had Tylenol in him for an hour. I called all the grandmas, both my grandma and my mom and told them I would be keeping the kids home this weekend.. and I sent DH and Princess off to that fun filled weekend of cookouts and swimming and softball games and time hanging out with the other families of the girls on the team.. So here I sit, with a sick boy still running a high fever.. stuck in the house this weekend..

I was reading blogs and found a few meme that looked like fun.. That since I'm not going anywhere this weekend I might get around to them..
The 1st one I saw while reading Palm Tree Fanatic it's the Friday feast.
Well today is Friday so I thought i might as well play along. So here it is.
Fridays Feast

Appetizer Name something you think is “the best.”
My husband and my children

SoupOn a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 highest), how stressed are you today?
Earlier I would have said O or 1.. now being home with 3 kids all weekend alone without my DH and one of the kids being sick, PLUS Princess at her softball games where there is always a chance she could get hurt.. I'm thinking it's more like a 4 or a 5 now.
Main Course Tonight is a blue moon! What is something that you believe only happens “once in a blue moon.”
Having my son get sick 2 hours just before I was to leave on a great weekend trip. the having one of the kids get sick isn't a shocker but having it happen right after I got done packing and was all ready to go sort of is PLUS getting to go away without Little Man is also a blue moon sort of thing(though he is getting older so it will happen a bit more I guess)
Dessert When was the last time it rained where you live?
When I started typing out my answers I was going to say lastnight but it is now raining here now.. So NOW would be my answer. :

Poor Mr. Man I hope he feels better soon. Poor you it really stinks you are missing out on your weekend getaway. Maybe you and your hubby can get away totally alone in the near future!!!

Marz said...

Oh No! I'm so sorry about your son & not being able to go away. :(
On the other hand, I hope Mr. Man feels better soon & his temp breaks.

Awww, poor Mr. Man. I hope he feels better soon! It's no fun being sick.
Sorry your plans didn't quite turn out. Hope your weekend turns out okay.
