oh the upset tummy!

I had an upset tummy all day yesterday. I managed to muddle through the day pretty well. Bob got home from work pretty early so it was a bit easier on me. We ran some errands in the afternoon and ended up going out for dinner. Oliver only ate fruit (melon and orange) and a bit of bread. I tried to eat a salad but it was horrible. I did end up eating most of a giant blueberry muffin and drinking about 3 glasses of Sprite. I wasn't really feeling much better by the time we were getting ready for bed but I still had to feed Wyatt and get him ready for bed. Oliver had gone to bed around 8:30 or so. he woke up just before Law and Order was over sooo...around 11? He was fussy and crying so Bob started to rock him. Next thing poor Bob knew Oliver was puking all over. Bob rushed him into the bathroom to get him cleaned up. I put (sleeping) Wyatt down and went in to help. Poor Oliver, he's never thrown up before so it probably scared him and it can't have felt or tasted very good either. When I walked in he started to throw up again so I put him over the toilet until he was done. I wiped his poor little face with a cool rag and then I very carefully took off his shirt, pants and socks; all of which were covered with melon and orange chunks. Bob went and got him some juice and fresh jammies (Batman!). I cleaned him up as best I could and then tried to get him to drink some of the juice but he didn't want it. He was so sad and snuggly that we ended up putting him in our bed for the rest of the night. He slept pretty well and woke up happy and normal today so I'm hoping the puking is over! I'm still not feeling well but we both had some dry toast for breakfast and are feeling a little better than yesterday.

I didn't realize we only had 2 weeks before Christmas!! I haven't bought anything...anything at all! I have to make Wyatt a stocking and I still have no idea what to put on it. I have to make something for the potluck at work...I have visitors coming (maybe) this weekend and we're going to WV next week. So much to do and we are running out of time!
