Our friends, Kristen and Kevin worked in Maddie's nursery Sunday morning, and Kristen texted me a picture of Maddie with Uncle Kevin.

Jim and Drew came down with bad colds early in the week. Drew felt so bad that he stayed home from school on Tuesday. He rested, napped, and ate soup all day. Poor Jim went to work each day, then came home and crashed each night.
Maddie woke up crying Thursday morning, and I walked into her room to find that she had thrown up in her bed. She must have thrown up in the night and then fallen back asleep because it was everywhere in her bed and all over her. She threw up one other time that day and had a lot of nasty diapers. She took several naps, but besides the yucky diapers, she seemed to be feeling pretty good by the next morning.
Jim's mom ended up picking Drew up from school and keeping him overnight Friday night to try to keep him away from the germs at home. She called early Saturday morning to say that Drew had thrown up twice and that he was crying to come home. She drove him home, and he spent almost all day in bed. The stomach virus hit Jim later that morning, completing the cycle through our family. It was a rough weekend! We survived on pretzels, Sprite, and Gatorade, delivered to our house by Jim's mom.
Here's what I did for Week 12 of Project Life.
Week 13:We were all in various stages of health on Sunday. Jim, Drew, and I were starting to feel better from the stomach virus, but Jim was still struggling with his cold, and I felt pretty weak. We all stayed home from church, but Jim had to go over to the school for an open house Sunday afternoon. Many of the teachers had the same stomach virus that we had, so they muddled through the open house the best they could.
