Another Sickie

Monday night, Marcus and I went to an auction to get stuff to sell at Golightly's.
We found some great things and it's really exciting. I NEED Marcus there, because I can't keep up with the auctioneer. I think I would keep outbidding myself. We also like to go to the auction because it makes us feel young and skinny...if you know what I mean?

Now I need the painting fairy to come and do her magic!

Tuesday morning I woke up with the same sick bug that Katie has had. It's no fun and I feel even worse today. And look at what I've been eating:

Healthy food! FRUIT, with almonds and that mug holds some green tea with honey and lemon, NOT Coke! It's like I'm a grown up or something. I do need to confess that Marcus got me a Slurpee today. Nothing helps a sore throat, or any other ailment for that matter, like a Slurpee.

Do you remember the terrible Wub incident from last month? I cut it off about 5 weeks ago, because it was time. Katie still has it and mentions that it's "bwoken" sometimes, but she is OK with it.

This picture was taken right before I cut the poor thing off!

WELL, Sunday night she was still really sick and in the middle of the night she totally lost her cool and I could NOT calm her down. Of course, Marcus was at the fire station and I had to deal with it by myself. She was flipping out, so I gave her the back up Wub that I have hidden away. She was asleep in 1 second! For real! I thought, Oh crap, what have I done? Marcus is going to kill me! Just then as I got back in bed, my phone was ringing! IT WAS MARCUS and it was 2 am! How did he know?! It turns out when I got out of bed to get Katie, I accidentally called him at the fire station, whoops! He called 100 times to see what the heck was going on. I confessed immediately about the wub!

I feel like I made the right decision, because it worked. BUT I didn't want her to go through withdrawls again, SO about an hour later, I snuck in her room and got it out of her hand. I felt JUST LIKE Tom Cruise in the first Mission Impossible when he was hanging by a wire and trying to get something with out being detected. Can you hear the music in your head? I did! Katie never mentioned the wub, so she must not have remembered the short sweet reunion that they had.

She's feeling better today:

She wanted to wear her bathing suit while she played in the back yard.
I love that she is keeping those curls! They just keep getting fluffier by the day!

I could not have survived the last 2 days with out my mom and sister who helped watch her while I laid on the couch.

Now I need go ice my face, because my sinuses are the size of...
I can't think of anything, but they are swollen and puffy and bigger than sinuses should be!

I hope you are feeling better this am. My worst fear is to get sick and I live far away from my family and I have a husband with a crazy travel schdule for his work : (

Get well soon!

Email me where local auctions are. I've been wanting to find some in the area. We've been watching Auction Kings and now I've got the bug to go.

I hope you get to feeling better!

I'm totally with you on having moments of weakness when it comes to pacifiers and our babies. I gave Maycee Belle her's back too when she was sick but she got hooked again. But I have since taken it away again....but still let her have it at night because I just finally got her sleeping through the night! haha

And that swimsuit is ADORABLE!

Hope you feel better soon. It's being a mom and being sick at the same time. Thank goodness for family and friends who pitch in when you need them. I think you need a Slurpee to shrink those sinuses. :)
