Mickey and I were in the paper!

So I got an email this morning from a woman who writes for the "Your Corner" section of the Virginia Pilot letting me know that Mickey and I were in the paper yesterday!  Remember when we went to Healthy Kids Day at the YMCA a few weeks ago?  Well, she took our picture and gave us her card and said she might write about us in the paper.  So I had emailed her to ask when and if she was planning to write about us, and she said she would let me know.  Glad she emailed me, or I would have missed it.  :-)  It's not the most flattering picture of me in the world, but what a fun momento to keep fro Mickey anyway!  We had fun, and Mickey looks ADORABLE!  ♥

I also took poor, pitiful Mickey to the doctor today because she is still running a fever, but they couldn't find a source for the fever and said it must just be from the cold.  While we were in the waiting room waiting to be called back, she threw up ALL OVER the waiting room floor.  YUCK!  Someone was in the bathroom (and taking FOREVER I might add!) so I just stood there with it all over my hands and all over poor Mickey's feet and all over the floor.  The girls behind the desk gave me some sanitizer wipes to clean it up, but it was so watery that I needed paper towels to wipe it up.  What a nightmare.  At least Carly and Callie were being good little babies!  I guess it is the mucous that is making her sick.  She keeps crying and holding onto her puke bag, but she hasn't thrown up again even though she keeps feeling like it.  Poor baby!  Never a dull moment around here.  Hoping to get back to more FUN moments once our herd gets to feeling better.

It's been a long day taking care of poor little sick Mickey and Callie's hiney decided to flair up again, so she and Carly had to soak in the tub with baking soda just as dinner was ready.  Cold dinner for me!  Ah, such is the glamorous life of a Mommy!  ;-)  I'm exhausted and ready to just relax.  But alas, I go, go, go every day until my head hits the pillow usually around 11 or 12 every night!  My 13 year old nephew is having surgery on his knee tomorrow, so I am praying that goes well.


  1. Awww. Hang in there mommy! I am!! Sure makes us recognize the good times.

    I will be saying a prayer for Taylor tomorrow too!! Let me know when you hear. Wonder if Tiff got his gift today? hmm...

  2. Definitely! His surgery is not until 2 or so. he's the last one of the day since he is the oldest kid they are doing. Taylor saw your text messages on Tiffany's phone (he was texting with a girl at the same time apparently - LOL), so he knows something is coming from you and has been excitedly looking in the mail for it every day, so I'm sure I will hear when it comes. :-)
