Sucks When They’re Sick

It’s been a fun one here. I am a little bit of a hot mess mombie dealing with at least one sick kid today and I am sure the other won’t be far behind. Ugh. I’m hoping that’s not the case but I’m not holding my breath.

Julian was up at least 4 times last night and when Jeff went and got him this morning he noticed he felt really hot. Low and behold, we took his temperature and it was 100.3 which for him is so high. He rarely gets a fever wit any sickness. I had a bad feeling right away and about 30 minutes after Jeff walked out the door Julian threw up. :-X

He napped on and off this morning in between me helping to comfort him and dealing with Caleb’s needs. After I got Caleb down for a morning nap I went and sat with my sick little bug and he ended up falling asleep on me.

He’s so independent these days and never been super cuddly (I also am a big fan of sleeping is done by yourself in your own bed most of the time) but I love that any time he’s sick he naps on me. ❤

I had a packed morning planned for us too, of course. We’ve had no food in the house for days now – thank God for Blue Apron! – so I wanted to get to the grocery store. My fridge is so sad. I also was hoping to get to the library to return some books and pick up more.

I’ve actually been into reading lately. Look at me with the podcasts and reading, who am I?! I’ve always enjoyed books a lot but I majorly fell off the last few years. My friend Shannon dropped off a copy of Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate in my mailbox a while ago and once I picked it up I didn’t want to put it down. I was bummed once it was over but that was enough to reignite the spark and I borrowed The Song of a Captive Bird by Jazmin Darznik and just finished that one. I am really loving having a book to wind down with before bed rather than aimless scrolling Insta and Facebook 500 times.

Anyways, I have to report back soon on how Blue Apron is going. We have been in a huge food rut for months, maybe years dare I say and I am actually eating different stuff and getting excited to cook again.

I am going to see how Jules is doing when he wakes up and maybe will attempt the grocery store if he seems OK enough. After the last 18 hours I hate to drag him out of the house but we literally have nothing to eat and Jeff is meeting an old work friend tonight. Otherwise I have no idea what we’ll do for dinner. I am thinking I’ll hold off on our last Blue Apron of the week for a night Jeff is going to be here.

Thinking out loud.
