Whirlwind weekend

So as I am about to embark on my new path of life. Getting things together, cleaning the house, making sure my family has enough food and clean clothes, yes that right I said clean clothes. I got a new washer and dryer in the spring which my 2 and 4 year old know how to use, unsupervised, and yet my husband looked at them the day and said how do these work! Ahhh you ***** not a bad word but I mind is fluttered and I can't think of what to call him. Probably lazy is the best choice. Like I said our two babies know how to do this and you 40 year old can't figure it out? I showed him and I told him if he has any questions ask the KIDS.

Life does not go as planned. As some of you knew Evan has not been feeling well. For the last few nights he crawled into bed with his dad and I not out of wanting to sleep in the big bed but out of discomfort. Friday after Jay left for work Evans health turned dramatically down hill. He was coughing so bad he struggled to breathe. His little body was hot all over he would just cry and fall over. His voice went from strong to so weak we had to ask him to repeat himself. Not our spirited Evan. As his dad left in the morning we both knew something had to be done. I got on the phone and started calling the doctors too early. I had to wait to 9. I finally got a hold of them and they said take him to the ER. Since the doctors’ office is right next to the ER I asked could I please bring him in their first. They agreed and looked at him the sent him right over to Washington County Hospital. Where there they did a number of X rays to determine what he had was croup.

Saturday he seemed better but very clingy. Sunday he was having a lot of trouble again. But we went down to his grandparents, for grandparents day anyways. It was too much and he had a bad Sunday. Today Monday, he is so fussy!!!! It is hard to take care of a sick kid when all they do is cry and whine and want to be held and you have everything else you have to do as well plus now I am also feeling sick. The house is thrashed, the laundry is in piles, the groceries are not got, the menu not made, and the kids still with out shoes for the fall. Ahh....I am supposed to be spending these last days with my kids spoiling them, and having fun. I am so not ready to go. Now that my baby is finally asleep I am taking the moment for me and checking email and blogging. Oh well in a crazy unplanned world you have to keep your sanity.

Well, I feel like an idiot for asking, but I must have missed something. What is the your new path? And, where are you going?

Poor Evan! Hope he's better soon.
