The Stomach Bug Chronicles

It’s been over a week since my last post, mostly because we’ve been passing a stomach bug around the house. I’ve pretty much been sick, recovering from being sick, or taking care of sick people for the last 10 days or so.

I guess time flies when you’re having the runs fun. (I’m sorry. I had to.)

I think my 6-year-old describes our weekend more eloquently than I could, so here you go:

The Stomach Bug Chronicles | Mommy Runs It

In case you don’t read child-ese, it says:

WHO: My family

WHEN: Memorial Day


FIRST: I threw up.

NEXT: Me and [my sister] watched like 5 movies.

THEN: I got a little water.

LAST: Took a bath.

WRAP IT UP: Went to bed. I had a bad day.

Me too, kiddo. Me too.

More soon. xo

Wordful Wednesday (and a Bonus Giveaway)

Because wordless isn't really my thing. Plus I'm sick (blech) and now seems like a good time to play computer catch-up, and I need words for that. I've got a bit of a double whammy here - I caught a cold from one daughter and a touch of a … [Continue reading]

Why I Blog for Free: An Update

About a year ago, a post came across my Facebook feed that really chapped my hide. A fellow blogger was admonishing the rest of us to "stop working for free." She essentially said that bloggers who work for free are ruining the industry. And she … [Continue reading]

Strawberry Soy Smoothie with Silk Soymilk

Thank you to Silk Soymilk for sponsoring today's conversation.  As a general rule, I'm not a big fan of my kids' pre-bedtime ritual. Giving baths, combing tangled hair, arguing about vitamins/pajamas/toothpaste/current events - just not my thing. … [Continue reading]

Choosing the Perfect Avocado for Your DIY Taco Bar + $10 PayPal Giveaway

I was always kind of indifferent toward avocados. But that (like most things in my life) changed when I got pregnant. It’s kind of a funny story, actually. It was very early in my first trimester. I don’t remember how many weeks along I was, but … [Continue reading]

Why I Love the 26.2 with Donna (2015)

I want to tell you about the 2015 26.2 with Donna. But it seems a little ridiculous (even for me) to recap a race that happened two months ago. So much has happened in the two months since the race - particularly my week in Israel and the Jerusalem … [Continue reading]
