Project 365: Weeks 3 & 4 "from the blehs...back to normal"

Sunday, January 15, 2012

After ridding this corner of its CHRISTmas tree, cleaning the house, and showing it yesterday, we set up the boys' racetrack here and let them go to town with it. It was the first thing they wanted to do when we got home from church today, though THESE photos are actually from Saturday. Read on and you'll see why I have no photo for today...

Gabriel wretched all over the kitchen floor during lunch yesterday. It was quite lovely. Poor baby continued in this same pattern all night long and slept off and on most of today on my bathroom floor. But... The Fox and the Hound actually made him smile.  :)

I woke up this morning with extreme vertigo and was completely incapacitated. Good thing kiddos can toast bread and dispense drinks. And good thing I have a friend like Krista who'll run to the grocery store for BRAT foods for my Gabe. 'Round about lunch the vertigo got better, but it was replaced with nausea and extreme body aches, so I was in bed all day, praying intensely that I would not vomit. So--no pictures, 'cause if I had any, they wouldn't be pretty.

I woke up with no pain today. Praise the Lord! Seriously, the no pain thing shocked my socks off, because I didn't think I'd ever fall asleep last night I hurt so badly. 

But my man was down for the count today. And Noah apparently got sick at dinner time last night. 

(We only have so many bathrooms, people.)

And another one's down, and another one's down...another one bites the dust.

I was so happy to feel a little warmth from the sun today.

Hanging out at the house today. We needed this. No showings. Purposefully.

We stayed home from church to rest and recuperate. Being together in pajamas is good medicine.

So is tickling...

Tonight I hosted a Norwex demonstration party at my house, and Sara came--and left amazed.  (She cleaned butter off my glass door...with ease.)

Liberty Bells

We're studying the story of The Nutcracker while listening to the different movements of the ballet. And I caught Saylor "upper-half" dancing. 

And because we are such an inspired bunch, tonight after watching A Dolphin Tale, Atticus was pretending to be "Winter" in the tub.  ;)

He's probably a bit too old for me to be posting baby-bottom shots, but I just couldn't help myself.

These two got up early with an alarm this go bird watching.

My Gabe looks so grown up these days. 

He's even having fun with silly phone apps like his big brother.

Today our church said goodbye to yet another family moving to Uganda!! 

Sorry for the two-weeker, but ya know? A sick family = much less motivation to blog.
I'm glad we're over it and moving on with life as usual. Be sure to stop by Sara's Project 365.


  1. oh my word, the bird watching picture took my breath away....precious.

    I am STILL telling everyone about those sold.

    I have to say I started reading this without reading the title and was just about thinking you were wonder woman having a party when you had had vertigo....but I still think you're wonder woman!!! :)

  2. Loved the manatee, great job!!! Kim

  3. Ugh, being sick is no fun -- glad you're all better! I can see why you didn't post last week :(

    Y'all sure did bounce back this week though :) Looks like a MUCH better time was had by all :)

    Hope this week goes well too!

  4. the bird watching!
    great shots
    sara can't quit talking about the cloths ;)

  5. YUCK with the sickies...and bummer for you and feeling yucky too...always harder when mom is down for the count, but glad everyone is feeling better. Love your school scene snapshots. Sara posted about those amazing clothes in her post 365 this week too...I will go have to google to see what I am missing!

  6. bless your heart! are you trying to sell your house, too? how do you do it all? glad everyone is on the mend. vertigo is no fun! your cuties are just precious. and i must find out about sara's special cloth? ;)

  7. Loved the sepia and Black and white shots of the kids....but my favorite is the laying on of hands men shot. There is something that makes me have chill bumps all over....when I see men praying for each other. It is an awesome shot.

  8. So glad you're all feeling better! I had to LOL at the bathroom comment - we just have one & I worry sometimes about what would happen if we both got sick. I've even thought that one of us would just have to go to a hotel for the duration - not that our budget would be happy with that. Ha!

  9. that manatee picture is really good! hope everyone is feeling a lot better and that doesn't hit your house again anytime soon

  10. So sorry you guys have been sick!! Glad everyone is improving. I loved seeing their greek schoolwork! See you guys this weekend, I hope.

  11. Sounds like you could use the break, not the sickies, though. The good week sure made up for the bad one.
    You do make school fun!
    What learning Hebrew/Greek???!!!
    you sure are the super teacher/mom!


Whatcha' think?
