Stomach Viruses and My Top 5


Well this is the year for lil' man to have the 24 hour stomach virus.  Let me refresh your memory on the last time.

This time I awoke to my husband cleaning up the "spaghetti from last night" all over the bed rail and floor.  By 9 am he was feeling ok enough to eat something, by 12 pm he felt well enough to go on the computer and by 4 pm he felt great enough to play basketball and go to running club.  I let him play basketball but not go to running club. 

This leads in to My Top 5 for the week......

#1 Lil' Man feeling better

-Don't you hate it when their sick? When you give birth to these little babies, it really pains you to see them suffer.  When his little body is hanging his head in a bowl puking his guts out, I really want to cry and wish I could suffer for him.  Thankfully he's feeling better. :)

#2. Dudes that wear Asics

-Should I bronze his first pair of running shoes?  He's running an 8k in March!

#3. My Spice-Herb Ball 

-Got a great deal on this "Herb" ball from Williams-Sonoma.  No longer do I have to cut cheese cloth, tie, and cut all the hanging strings when I cook my recipes.  I can now load all my spices into this metal ball, latch it and hang it in the pot.  Do you realize how much time I'm going to save?  This was in the clearance pile for $2.00, regular prize was $10.00. 

#4.  My Husbands Coffee

-My husband makes the best coffee.  I mean seriously, nobody can make coffee like my husband.  I've tried to watch and copy what he does and it never comes out right.  I have to admit I'm pretty high maintenance with my coffee.  I have one splenda, 1 lil' tub of half/half, and a splash of regular milk. Oh, and it has to be "burning the roof of my mouth" hot.  I have to blow on it so why have it so hot? Don't know but I dig the little ritual I got with my friend coffee.  Awwwww...a little piece of heaven every morning.

#5. Psalms 139:7-8

"Where can I go from your spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there."

-Our Pastor was just preaching on Sunday about how God's love and thoughts for us are precious to Him. Then a couple days later I read this in my devotion time.  


By the way, where do you guys put your Garmin? I found the perfect place on my dresser and even have a little pillow for it to lay on.

It IS the worst when the youngins are sick :-( I'm glad he's on the ups!

Hey , I'm glad the little guy is feeling better and I CAN TOTALLY relate withe the coffee "thing". Lisa can make a pot and it tastes awesome , I love it. Then I make a pot (with the same filter, the same beans) and it tastes like...... well you know! :-(

I love your top 5 list! I need to steal the idea. Its a great chance to change some of our "stinkin' thinkin'" that the world throws at each each and every day!

As a long time ASICs Gel Nimbus wearer, I dig #2. But, couldn't you find a shapelier pair of legs to put in the picture?

Viv said...

Hope the Lil guy is all better now. Love the top five. I keep my Garmin in my running/cycling back pack.

STOP staring at the Garmin, I know it is easier said than done.

Glad to hear Lil guy is feeling better. It's awful to feel so helpless when a loved one is sick.

And I so know what you mean about husbands making good coffee! Mine makes the best too but I usually only get it on weekends when he's home. I think it may have something to do with the love that goes into making it because he's not even a coffee drinker himself, ha!
