Weekly Happenings: This past week was quite the interesting one. Monday, I felt awful, so as soon as Paul got home from work, I went to bed. Literally. Paul was awesome enough to take care of Joseph so that I could just sleep off whatever it was that was attacking me (in the form of a fever, aches, and waves of nausea). I felt better on Tuesday, so I went ahead and took Joseph to the costume parade at the library. He had SO much fun! Wednesday was rather uneventful, but then Thursday Joseph woke up saying that his stomach hurt and he had a fever. Then he threw up. 🙁 Luckily, he showed enough signs prior to the event, that I almost got him to the bathroom fast enough. There was a bit of clean-up to do, but not as much as in times past. He spent all of Thursday on the couch (missing the ward trunk-or-treat, but shhhh, don’t tell him…he luckily forgot about it) and all of Friday on the couch, too. He went on a food strike and we barely got him to drink any fluids (I think he was afraid he would throw up again). His fever finally broke Friday night and his appetite is slowly coming back. Saturday we ran some errands (and took a spontaneous trip to the mall) and then got home just in time for Paul to take Joseph trick-or-treating and for me to hand out candy. Whew!
Weekly Weather: The beginning of the week was mild, but the weekend brought crazy weather. A couple of storms came through that each dropped a LOT of water. It was tricky for Paul to get to work on Friday because a lot of the roads were washed out. Craziness!
What Paul’s Been Up To: Not too much out of the ordinary. Mainly just work and school. He’s still maintaining excellent grades in his classes, which is impressive since they are quite challenging.
What Sarah’s Been Up To: Not much on this front, either…mainly due to needing to take care of Joseph. Piano teaching is going well, as is choir and visiting teaching stuff. 🙂
What Joseph’s Been Up To: The funny thing he’s been doing is he’s picked up the phrase, “I’m thinking of…” and then inserting something that he wants to do. For instance, when we were running our errands on Saturday, we hear from the backseat, “I’m thinking of us going to the mall so that I can do stuff.” He apparently recognized the fact that we were really close to the mall…hence our spontaneous trip out there. Little smarty-pants.
