This week's posts for Give-It-Away Thursday and Five on Friday were derailed by a little girl with a stomach bug, whom I spent most of the last 36 hours with cuddling on the couch. And the rest of the time was spent trying to clean puke out of the carpet - not just Riely's, but the dog's as well (who apparently developed a sympathy stomach bug to show his loyalty.) My suggestion to just rip it all out and install hardwoods was not popular with Mike, who reminded me that we own a Bissell Little Green Machine expressly for the purpose of removing said puke from carpet. I still like the idea of hardwoods better.
Luckily the girly (and the dog) are feeling better and I think (fingers crossed) our Friday will be puke-free. We've got a busy weekend in the works, and I'll be kicking things off this afternoon with my Spawn of True Scrap class at 3:00 EST. Hope to see some of you there! After the class, I'll be around to answer questions and offer advice on carpet cleaning. Just kidding. Kind of.
Tonight Hayden has his first night football game (Friday Night Lights, people!) and I'm hoping we don't freeze our tushies off watching from the sidelines. I'm thinking some spiked hot cocoa in a thermos might be accompanying me.
Also on the weekend agenda? Carving pumpkins, a visit with the cousins, another football game Saturday afternoon, and a date night for Mike and me. Because he totally owes me for cleaning up all that puke.
Annnnnnd don't forget that Scrapfest is happening all weekend over at Jenni Bowlin Studio! There are nightly chats with the design team, challenges and inspiration galore. And we'll be selecting one of the Scrapfest participants to be our December guest designer, so pop over and show us your stuff! I'm talking about scrapbook stuff, you perverts. Geez.
