Mother's Day

Mother's Day was nice. Carl and I argued a little in the morning but that was because I was not exactly being a nice person, some might say I was being a bitch...

So after and while I was "bitching" at him he made me a wonderful breakfast and "D" helped. So I ate a ton of food for breakfast.

After much ado I convinced him to go with me to my mother's house to see my mom and my grandma, my uncle Tim also came with his daughter Felicia. Carl barbecued a delicious lunch/diner for us all. He made steak, shrimp, baked potatoes and asparagus. He also bought a peach pie and Tillamook French Vanilla Ice Cream (which is divine).

It was SOOOO nice. Everyone was getting along, for the most part, and there weren't any huge fights! I think that is a first for a family get together for my family.

My poor grandma though, she is having a very hard time dealing with my Uncle Mike's death. He died almost 1 year ago, and this was her first Mother's Day since then. I wanted to comfort her but I didn't know what to say and my mom was having a hard time too. But they deal with grief in very different ways so they tend to irritate each other (even though most things they do irritate each other).

I was such a bum this year. I didn't even get either one of them a card or anything. I am so mad at myself. I have to do something nice for them soon! I am thinking about making something with "D" for them, since they obviously like him more than me, I don't know why....

I know that my blog is VERY new, but if anyone comes across it and has any ideas please let me know.

My Poor Baby...

My baby is sick. He had a low grade fever Saturday and Sunday so I called the 24 hour nurse line and the lady said that it was probably croup. So I didn't take him to the hospital, then last night he was coughing so I gave him about a half teaspoon of honey, which the nurse told me to do to help the cough. Then he laid down next to me in bed and started complaining about his throat hurting so I gave him another pillow. Next thing I know he is projectile vomiting all over me. This is only the second time in his whole life that he has thrown up! He gets undressed and tells me that he feels better now. Then he wants to talk about "puking" for the next 20 minutes until he falls asleep.

Needless to say, I think that the honey was a bit much for his stomach since he hadn't really eaten all day.

But on a better note, my back is feeling better today. I have been trying to take is easy for the past couple of days since I hurt my back but now it is feeling better. I will still take it easy because I know that if I don't it will start hurting again!
