Weekend Wrap

Our weekend started out on Thursday by having dinner with some friends.
It was much needed adult time after the husband has been gone each week.
I needed a little away time from the girls even though I probaby talked about them non stop.

Friday was back to picking up the house, going through boxes and playing outside.
Great day.
Until darkness hit.
Harper started throwing up everywhere, screaming, her tear duct was producing green mucus.
Lets not forget the 102.3 fever.
The husband and I knew exactly what it was and hoped to avoid the ER at all costs.
Remember, the last time we went the baby picked up RSV.
I dug out her numbing drops and finally after some tylenol sge crashed around 2:30 on a pillow.
We were up a ton but thankful I could get her comfortable enough to make the night.
There is a great Cooks Urgent care in Southlake that we were walking in a few minutes before they opened.
I am beyond impressed with that place.
Sure enough, double ear infections with worries that the drums will burst.
She had to be cathed once again to check for UTI since to our surprise, she had one in the hospital last time.
Apparently it is really worrisome for children this young to have one.
We will have to follow up with an ultrasound.
We left there after a Rocephin shot, a 10 day script and an appointment for a follow up and an ENT appointment.

Even with all that going on, we were determined to throw meat on the grill.
I mean we have had that grill for 18 months and never used it.
Well, it worked beautifully.
The smoked ribs, vegetable kabobs and chicken kabobs were fabulous.
With all that food, we invited some friends over.
Lucky for us, they alway get the family treatment.
So in other words, the unpacked boxes and dust on some furniture was okay.

Today, we all stayed in bed until 11.

I even had to wake up HG.


The husband treated the yard so that Camo can come home before heading to school.

The girls and I went to Boyd's birthday party.

I am so glad we went, all three of us had a blast.

On another note, please pray for a good friend of mine. He was shot while in the line of duty protecting our safety. I sware I have never met a man with such Southern manners. He is in stable condition and expected to fully recover.

  1. Praying for your friend that was shot. How is he doing? :( So very sad.

    Praying for Harper to feel better too. You've got to be exhausted!

    Thanks for coming to the party. Boyd had so much fun. SO MUCH!! You are sweet to come and put up with the craziness. That day was a whirlwind for me.
