Day 688: What Inspires A Good Dryer Hose Cleaning

Well, I was up again in the night with a sick Baby B.  I've been desperate to keep HH healthy for this busy weekend, so I insisted he go back to bed.

Thus, this morning dawned WAY too early for me.

And then I remembered that Sweet P was supposed to dress 50's for the school Sock Hop today.


We don't own any poodle skirts.  So, after some frantic googling, I improvised based on the advice found in this article.

It looked more authentic in person.  But, I knew a poodle skirt would have been better.

Still she was excited and her day went well.

Baby B slept in until nearly 10 AM.  This should have been a Joyful Moment, but when checking on him earlier, I was accosted by horrific smells emanating from his bed.  I decided that sleep was best, however, and that I would face whatever it was when he awoke.

Well, let's just say, worst scenario imaginable and leave it at that.

So, I waited until the current load of soiled bedding and clothing finished, and began a new one with his freshly soiled stuff.  Yay.

As you can see, the day was off to a great start for Joyful Moments.

The good news is, I was somehow finally energized and cleaned my entire house from top to bottom.  I even cleaned out the dryer hose.  What?!  Yeah.

And I definitely found some Joyful Moments in finally having a really clean house again.

That, and after his apparent early morning purging, Baby B finally seems to be on the mend and was almost back to his old self again.  He even played for a bit with Little M without demanding to be held by me.

Seeing my baby finally begin to recover (and feeling quite a bit better myself) was probably the best Joyful Moment of the day.

Sorry for all the graphic details.  It was just kind of one of those days I really had to get off my chest, I guess.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments and excellent health this Christmas weekend!

Cute Sweet P! I was born in the 50's but have no idea what a peep-toe heel is. And it looks like you went with the conservative look - good choice! :)

I hope Baby B is back to himself and that the rest of you stay that way. Sounds like you have a fun weekend planned.

My JM might have been watching the first half of "Elf" with my HH and laughing outloud together.

Nikki--Thank you! And Merry Christmas to you too!

Mom--I have some really cute peep-toes, I show them to you next time you come.
