It's Monday! Linking up with Biana and Meghan for Weekending. 

Well, I came down with Walker's bug, too. Ugh. But let me back up, mmmkay?

I was feeling totally fine and actually was beginning to get really thankful that I hadn't come down with the stomach nastiness. So, Friday night was our biggest event of the year at a hotel at DFW Airport. My mother-in-law came over to our house to watch Walker so he didn't have to go to school, and I made the quick trip to the airport to get everything set up. 

Right around lunch, my stomach started turning. We got back in the hotel room to rest a bit before getting dressed for the event, and I just knew. The girls quickly sent me home, and I'm glad they did, because I got sick the second I stepped foot in the house - and didn't stop until about 1 a.m. Saturday. It was horrible. I felt awful for missing this event, but I knew I couldn't have made it through the night in my condition...and I would hate to get other people sick! 

I still felt puny all day, and then Brandon started to feel icky, too. Thankfully, he has yet to get sick, so I hope and pray he's not going to get it. 

We spent Saturday morning on the couch, just resting and being lazy. It was a beautiful, cool morning, so we opened up the windows to let some fresh air in and I Lysol'd and Clorox'd everything that moved and washed anything that was a fabric on our washer's "Sanitary" setting. 

Saturday afternoon, we had to get out of the house, so we made a quick run to Home Depot for some sod...and left with a new table, chairs and umbrella for our back patio. This is why I shouldn't be allowed to go to Home Depot with my husband. 

I picked up soup from a local restaurant for dinner, and we went to bed super early. 

We didn't go to church for obvious reasons. We spent the morning doing more cleaning and made a quick run to the grocery store to stock up on stuff for the week. 

{I just had to capture a picture of this cute thing in his "Brown Bear" jammies. I love them!} 

I enjoyed some more fresh air {and our new patio furniture} in the back yard, just blogging and feeling glad to be back in the land of the living. 

After the crazy, whirlwind last week that we had, I'm praying for a smooth, easy week this week! Cross your fingers for me!


  1. Hope you all are feeling better and that this week is much better.

  2. Getting sick is no fun! Hope you guys all recover quickly!

  3. I hope you feel better - what awful timing to get sick!!! I become insane about cleaning whenever I feel a bug coming on - I can completely relate. I hope you get some rest this week :)

  4. Hope you are feeling much better and that this week goes super smoothly for you.

    And Brown Bear Jammies!! SUPER CUTE!

  5. Yay for new tables, chairs and an umbrella for the back patio... lots of BBQ's and picnicking is in your future!!
