Clean up, clean up, everybody, everywhere...

Oh, wait a minute...it's just ME that's cleaning up so much. Since Syd got sick Saturday night, I can't tell you how many times I've cleaned up vomit!! Syd's better, but Jacob's sick now! It's a vicious cycle around here, and I'm praying no one else gets it, but anyone with more than one child knows how things usually go all the way around before they stop!!

I was disappointed to not be able to participate in Not Me! Monday yesterday.
I had a migraine all day, (Paul sent me to bed at 9 cause I was crashed on the couch) and even though I sat at my computer several times, and even started my post, I couldn't sit or concentrate long enough to make a cohesive entry. So here are a few things I wouldn't have written if I had not felt better;

I did not spend most of the weekend cleaning up messes better left undescribed.

I did not (just like MckMama didn't) take a pregnancy test last week because I have not only had one period since BEFORE Emmie was born. (In Jan. One of the many perks to breastfeeding! I have not missed it!) I was not mildly disappointed when it was negative.

I have not been completely unable to get my diet back on track, and have not been eating like a HOG-which did not add to the suspicion that I might be PG!

I did not enter one of MckMama's contest, and am not waiting impatiently for her to announce the winner!

Ok, that's enough of that. I wanted to point out that I added a link to Kayleigh's blog. I read it today and found out that they are in dire financial trouble right now, even so far as to be losing their house! They have friends who are creating a blog where we can go donate and be entered to win cool prizes, but the blog won't be up till March 3rd, so visit the blog andkeep checking back.

On the lighter side, I let the girls make cookies today, by themselves! They did a great job. I only helped with the mixer, and monitored the rest. And speaking of mixers, we got an awesome one!! I've been wanting a Kitchenaid for forever, but we've never been willing to fork over the $250-$300 cost for one. I was SOOOO excited the other day when Paul found one on clearance at Sears for $99!!!!! Just because it's cobalt blue-like I even CARE what color it is! It's great, and we've used it several times already. I took pics of Paul using it to make pancakes with this weekend.


Speaking of Paul and cooking, he cooked almost every meal this weekend, and I got a nap Saturday and Sunday! It was very nice! I think this post is long enough now, so...

I hope everyone starts feeling better soon!! Great Not Me's even if they were a day late!! I love the new mixer. I have a white one that I got for a wedding gift and we use it ALL the time! The chocolate chip cookie recipe in the cookbook that came with the mixer is the BEST!!! And OMG!! I can't believe you had to take a pregnancy test!

Sorry to hear that so many are under the weather. Feel better soon. That mixer is awesome. I used to love not having periods because of nursing, but I had to do the pregnancy test a time or two as well.
