Five on Friday

No post today friends. The stomach flu came back to our house with a vengeance this week taking out all 3 of us since Tuesday. Months ago we purchased overpriced flights to Orlando for a great weekend of bachelorette festivities for one of my best friends, 36 holes of golf for Matt, a much needed pool day with my sister and 2.5 days of Caroline time for my parents. So while I should be hugging my dad around the neck for the first time since Christmas we will instead be parked on the couch with saltines and pedialyte. It’s been a pretty terrible week filled with cancelled plans, friend guilt, mom guilt, a nasty ear infection, 3 nights of cleaning up vomit (x3), 345435 loads of laundry and severe sleep deprivation. Oh, and to top it all off, I passed out at Caroline’s emergency doctor’s appointment yesterday morning. I guess that’s what happens when you forget to take care of yourself for a few days.

Sorry for the depressing post.
