Last night I might have gotten a little upset with my family because I felt that they weren't being very grateful for all I do. So, I threatened to take the day off, so they could more fully appreciate all that I do.
Our day today began at 12:30 AM when Baby B began to scream and Little M ran into to frantically proclaim that Baby B was throwing up. In my tired daze, I remember hoping that he was mistaken.
He was not.
So, HH and spent the next part of the night alternating care of a very sick, very sad Baby B. But I was feeling increasingly unwell myself, so HH took over full time care of the baby. Early this morning I succumbed as well.
And to spare you further details, it eventually hit everyone, but HH. Sweet P and Little M were perfectly fine before and after, thankfully. But Baby B and I have been struck down pretty low. Poor HH took the day off and spent it cleaning up and tending to all of us invalids.
So, today was not a day overflowing with Joyful Moments. There were a few, however. The most exciting one, for me, was when HH's dad called and offered him a free night's stay at any Marriott. My father-in-law travels quite a bit for work and thus, accrues hotel points. I'm not sure what made him offer them to us all of the sudden, but HH readily accepted.
See, we're planning a little romantic getaway next month and were already discussing where to stay. So, this was a pleasant surprise that we are very grateful for. I always love saving money, and especially when I still get to have something nice.
Wishing you all Joyful Moments and stomach flu-free days!
