Weekend Wrap Up


I started off Saturday morning with a cardio and weights workout concentrating on upper body. 


And then we headed to my now 9 year old’s birthday party. He invited 7 kids from his class and then we had family, so a combined party of 23 people.


Huge shout out to Cherry Hill Lanes North – this party was awesome! All I had to do was invite people and bring the cake. They provided all of the decorations, set up, clean up, pizza, salad, breadsticks and drinks for lunch and then a personalized bowling pin to take home.



Before going to an adult’s night out at Church, we had dinner with the kids and tried to do a little relaxing after a busy day! I tried the gluten free pizza from Jet’s Pizza and I was so impressed! It was SO good! It was a thin crust, nice and crispy and for the first time in years, I was able to eat pizza without feeling like a bloated disaster.


When we got home, I noticed that Emma’s cold was getting progressively worse. By the time she woke up from her nap on Sunday afternoon, she was feverish, coughing so hard she was throwing up and was really just not herself. I knew that she couldn’t make it until today to see a Dr., I suspected yet another ear infection, so we went to urgent care.  Her temp was 102, had an upper respiratory infection and just as I thought- her ears are infected. Again. This is her 4th since September. I have a feeling tubes may be in her future soon. None of my other kids have had as many ear infections as she has had, so this is really unfamiliar territory for me.

Just a few doses of the antibiotic and she is feeling a million times better just 24 hours later. She spent a lot of time snuggling today and catching up on sleep from her restless nights on Friday and Saturday night.

My plan was to do a lot of house cleaning today, but snuggles > cleaning.

Fingers crossed, we are on the road to health around here! Two of my other kids have the same cold that Emma has too.
