I went to the Doctor this past Friday and they asked me if I wanted to get the flu shot.? I was hesitant because I had my mom visiting for the weekend and I really didn’t want to get the flu.? I have heard on several occasions of people coming down with a mild case of the flu from the shot.? After all, they are injecting little bit of the flu into you right?
The Doctor assured me that I would be fine and that the only thing that? might happen would be for my arm to get a little sore.
Friday I was fine.? But on Saturday I started feeling achy.? Sunday it got worse, and now Monday – I really have the flu!? What the heck?? Now my head is pounding and my whole body aches from head to toe.? I was so looking forward to today because my 3 & 4 yr olds are in preschool for a full day.?? I had planned on getting lots of work done today, but that probably won’t happen, because I am having a hard time just typing this post from my bed.
I am interested to know what your thoughts are about the flu shot.? Please leave me a comment and fill out the poll below.? You can pick more than one answer.
Thanks so much!? I am going to put my laptop back on my desk and lay down and get some rest.

I think this is every mama’s worst nightmare.? I have not cut my daughter’s hair in over a year.? It grew pretty long (shoulder length).? I was busy busy on the computer and the kids had gotten pretty quiet after being in the bathroom to wash marker off of their hands.
All of a sudden, I hear from my son “Mommy, Leeah is using scissors”.? I SHOT up from my desk and ran to the bathroom to see my daughter with scissors in her hand and a good portion of her hair chopped off.?? I was SCREAMING!!
The funny part is that she cut her hair and cleaned up after herself while doing it.? Here is what the garbage looked like when I walked in.
And this is my darling daughter crying after I screamed at her.? Her hair is so dark and thick that you really can’t see much of the destruction, but she cut huge chunks out of the sides of her hair.
It took me about an hour of cutting (and keep in mind, I am not a hairdresser by any means).? I can use a buzzer to cut my sons hair, but not much else.? My daughter actually fell asleep sitting up because it took me so long.? LOL? And moms, yes, my 3 yr old still uses a bobo on occasion.? It was the only thing that would calm her down, and I was pretty desperate.
Here she is about to get into the tub.
I got these pictures in an email and I just had to share!
Ireland Husband – Gotta love the Irish! (at least he’s holding her hand!? LOL)
I would like to say thankyou to Leslie @LaMamaNaturale of Recycle Your Day for hosting a great giveaway recently (which I was so blessed to win!)? Be sure to check her site out when you get a chance!
The giveaway rules asked for us to go to the sponsor’s website and pick out our favorite item.? The site had some really great stuff, but my absolute favorite thing was the Baby Blessed Bracelet.
The artist is a doula and a mother of three.? She has a special understanding and love for pregnancy, birth, and babies.? Her ETSY store Bellyblessings Designs is the result of over 10 years of passion for pregnancy combined with a love of making jewelry.
(don’t mind my tatoo – I had some crazy teenage years before settling down as a wife and mom. LOL)
This picture definitely doesn’t do it justice.? I just wanted you to see me actually wearing the bracelet.? Here is what it REALLY looks like.
According to the artist, this bracelet was designed for the expectant mother.? It is made with light rose quartz rounds for girls, and blue lace agate ovals for boys.? It represents your unborn baby and all of their potential.? I love that!? The heart-shaped clasp, spacer beads and findings are all sterling silver.?? Those details are what got me, especially the tiny heart clasp – perfect!
I just had a baby, so it is a blessing to have and to wear.? I will cherish it for many years to come.?? By the way, the artist was so kind to throw in a matching pair of earings as well – wasn’t that nice?
It all started this past Tuesday when my daughter started throwing up.? She is 3 years old and not at the point yet where she can hold it back till she gets to the bathroom.? I washed her sheets several times over the course of the week due to her throwing up in bed.? It was HORRIBLE!
I thought it was over after a few days and actually thought it may have been caused by her being lactose intolerant.?? She had been drinking her brother’s regular milk the day before she got sick.? Since my mom had been planning on visiting this weekend, I told her to go ahead and come because my daughter seemed much better.? My mom drove up from NJ on Thursday to spend a long weekend and celebrate a late Christmas since we didn’t get to see her over the holidays.? All was great until Friday afternoon, when I got a call from my 4 yr old son’s preschool that he had just thrown up all over the floor in his class.
Uh oh….. My mom was kind of upset, because the last thing she wanted was to get sick.?? My husband picked my son up from school who threw up all over his car on the way home.? And once my son came home, I started to feel queezy myself.? I let it go because I thought maybe I was just THINKING I was sick, but not really sick.? That happens to me a lot, especially after cleaning up throw up and feeling like gagging.
Well, sure enough, an hour later I was in the bathroom with diarrhea and then an hour after that I was throwing up.? My mom decided to pack up and leave that night hoping that she wouldn’t get sick herself.? I was praying she would be OK.
So, for the entire night on Friday, I was back and forth from bed to bathroom until I had nothing left.? It was the sickest I had been in a LONG time.
Saturday morning, the phone rang, and it was my mom.? She sounded horrible and said that she was sick too.
Well, it has surely been a rough weekend for me and my family.? Thank God my husband has not gotten it.? He was able to care for the kids and the baby while I was sick in bed.? I even got a full night’s sleep last night (almost 12 hours straight).? I have not slept that much in one time period for quite a while.? I really needed that rest and the downtime.
I am looking forward to a new week.? I have sooooo much catching up to do.? But stay tuned, because I am offering another great blog graphic giveaway!? For those of you in need of a 125×125 ad button…I think that is what I am offering next!!
