Crazy Are the People Walking Through My Head

Damn it! I know I said I was going to give you a break from my garden shots, but I just can't help it. I'm so proud of my tomato plants that I planted from seeds. I finally have several little tomatoes forming. Hurray!

So, I had a pretty weird, sleepless night last night. I had a hard time falling asleep (as usual) and then the constant storms woke me up several times. The thunder and lightning were wicked.

At around 5 am, I heard Coadster yelling my name. I jumped out of bed to find her throwing up into a bowl. I got her some water and made sure she was okay and tried to get back to sleep without much success. Coadster has pretty much been puking ever since. I feel so bad for her. I'm assuming it's a virus and she keeps complaining about having stomach cramps. I bring her a warm cloth for her forehead from time to time, but I don't know what else to do for her. I think it's an occupational hazard of working in a daycare. Poor girl.

We had a lovely tornado warning in our area this afternoon, so that was another fun thing. It wasn't anywhere near Iowa City, thank god. By the time I got home from work, I was so exhausted that I took a two hour nap. It was exactly what I needed.

Now, I'm going to try and clean as much of my house as I can, so that I have more time to play with Stinky tomorrow on my first vacation day. Hopefully, all the illness and storms have passed for a few days. I could use a nice sunny, happy day tomorrow. Wish me luck, and I'll wish the best for you as well...As always.

Enjoy my friend, enjoy.
We had an earthquake nearby yesterday but yours truly didn't feel it. Others in my OR did though. Cripes, the earth could've opened up and swallowed me and I propably would have said: who turned out the lights. :)

A virus thingy is going around. Both my wife and I had it within a week of each other. Takes about 3 days to feel normal again. Projectile vomiting (sorry for being so graphic) ends after 6 hours or so. Tell the sweetie to hang on...she's get better.

Oh no, poor Coadster! I hope she's feeling better now, or starting to at least!

I'm glad the tornado scare went away, too. We had some bad storms all around us yesterday. Tornado warnings and watches were out, but thankfully not in our area.

Hey, I for one love your garden posts!

There's nothing more frustrating than sitting it out with a sick kid, especially when they're not quite sick enough to bring to the doctor.

Our weather must have headed west; we had tornado sirens here in Chicago for the first time in years. I remember the destruction from the one that hit Oak Lawn, a suburb south of us, in 1967. It hit the town's high school, which was, thank god, unoccupied at the time. Still killed a couple of dozen people.

Poor Coadster. I'm sure you're right about it being a hazard of working with little children. Germ spreaders, every one! :-)

I hope the storms cease and desist and you are able to have a great few days off.

I waited alllll day long before I commented so I wouldn't make any extra noise for the sick one.

I hope you had a beautiful, beautiful day. Without tornadoes.
