That's right...that's a full laundry basket. Every since towel, washcloth, sheet and blanket in my house has been covered in all sorts of nastiness thanks to The Buggernut who contracted her first stomach flu ever and let me hope that it's the last. The poor thing was sick for 24 hours straight. She's doing much better today...we've spent most of the day doing more laundry, spraying everything with Lysol (yes, I said Lysol...I do what's needed in dire emergencies), and cuddling while watching hours of PBS and Animal Planet. I have to say, the nice thing about her being sick...wait, what did I just say?...is that she cuddles. My child is not a cuddler. She never has been. She's an independent spirit who only lets me hold her at bedtime or right after she wakes up. In an attempt to snuggle with her daily, I am sure to get the toddler brush-off...I BUSY MAMA!
Who knew that only a few short hours after this was taken that she would be a miserable babe.
Please wish for a fast recovery and that the Mr. and I don't get it. Oy.
In good mail news...these arrived yesterday in the midst of the sicknessssssssss...
That's right...both Sense & Sensibility and Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen (can you believe I never owned a copy of either!?) and a book Kylee would LOVE...Cocktails for Three by Madeleine Wickham aka Sophie Kinsella (author of the Shopaholic Series). Now let's see if I can balance out the knitting with the reading.
