Hurricane GI

Well the nasty stomach bug that has wound its way through our family has finally made it full circle. It started with Little Bit on Tuesday morning, then I got it Thursday evening, then the Critter on Saturday, and now Daddy McAustin is sleeping off its effects today. I hate it when anyone is sick, and viruses like this are just horrible. You know that no matter how much hand washing, Lysoling, or antibacterial wiping you do, it WILL have its own way. And sadly, that has proven true of this one. (Daddy McA kept saying that HE wasn't going to get it, but I KNEW....) Luckily, it was short-lived, low-fevered, and not too terribly cramping.

But that doesn't mean to say that the remaining hour and a half of the drive to Houston on Saturday (what were we thinking?) AFTER the Critter got sick in the car wasn't miserable. Or the 3 hours spent in IKEA trying to settle on which sleeper sofa, desk and shelves combination would be best for our office space was any more pleasurable. And yes, I know, it was probably an extremely irresponsible parenting move for us to continue with our plans, but C. didn't have fever, and seemed to feel fine after sleeping the remainder of the trip down.

Oh but the mounds and mounds of laundry.....

We are off today to our first day of bible study at church for the year. They actually have a "study" program for the kids, too. Critter & Little Bit REALLY love going, it gives them some additional structured time with kids in a group their own ages, and I get that much-appreciated shot of adult conversation NOT about children.
Have a great Monday..... but watch out for Hurricane GI.

Glad you guys are better. We just did the IKEA thing two weeks ago, and doing the bible study thing tonight, as well. Great minds think alike! Happy Monday!

Egads! That sounds awful!!!! It's bad enough when one person is sick, but when the whole family gets it... :( How was the new super-sized IKEA? I haven't ventured in yet for fear I might get lost and never find my way out. hee-hee :D

There is nothing worse than that kind of sick.

Hope everybody is now feeling better and out of the bathroom for good! :)

The closest one to us is like 1.5 hrs. away. When the time comes we're just going to rent a UHaul and buy everything at once.

I love IKEA (almost as much as Taco Bell).

I'm not a big fan of IKEA but their stores are cool. You must try their Swedish chocolate candy bars called Daim bars. They are kinda like Heath bars, but better. I discovered them on a trip to Sweden once and was thrilled to find them again at IKEA.

My Bible study class starts next week, can't WAIT!

The new IKEA is huge; however, I prefer the one in Houston. But, it was nice to have it close to haul the furniture home.
