Day 249 - Tuesday, Sept 6

No picture today....I was just too sick.

The girls were able to leave for school about noon.
I never made it out of bed.
My poor husband is so tired...he washed all the sheets the girls slept on and got the house cleaned and back in order, went to work, plus took great care of me....I love that man!

Day 248 - Monday, Sept. 5

Well, Labor Day didn't turn out as I had planned....
We woke up to Kayley and Janeal throwing up with a stomach virus...ugh.  Kayley spent most of the day right here....poor thing was so sick.
 The other kids enjoyed another round of Settlers. 

 I enjoyed watching the US Open in between caring for the girls and getting the food ready for the BBQ.....I think I was too busy to realize that I was getting sick too.
 Steve manned the grill and made these awesome wings that I found on Foodgawker.  Go here for the recipe!!!
The stomach bug hit me hard in the early evening and Steve had to take over caring for everyone and getting the house all picked up after the boys left.  The girls were still too sick to leave for college.

Day 247 - Sunday, Sept. 4

 My niece, the blonde, and her roommate are here for the weekend.  Went to church this morning and when we got home, Jason was there with 3 of his friends from college.

 We had a GREAT time playing water volleyball and then the kids hung out on the deck for a while.

Of course, settlers was brought out later in the afternoon and then the girls and I went to see The Help tonight......just as good the 2nd time!!!!
