What a day!

Baby girl woke me up this morning throwing up. This is my first experience cleaning up chunky messes. It took me about 30 min to get that cleaned up and giver her a bucket next to her bed and get her back down.

I left the alarm on just in case it was a fluke. The alarm went off at 6:30 and I walked into her room. She was already awake. I asked her if she was ok...and she said no. She proceeded to throw up again. The bucket was fairly well used.

At this point she stopped throwing up and hubby had gotten up to go to work. I went back to sleep. When he left and I woke up I found two buckets with stuff in them. And carpet stains in her room and in the living room.

Now after about 8 am she didn't get sick again. Her fever went down. She seems normal, but did miss the second day of school.

NOW WE ALMOST JUST HAD A FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Baby boy wanted a snack (as usual) So I walked into the kitchen and smelled something. I opened the freezer and it was a bit steamy in there. I looked around and sure enough the coils in the back bottom were bright red and looked like the were about to catch fire. They were steaming and popping. I used all my strength and pulled the refrigerator from the all. And yanked the electric cord from outlet.

Now we are hoping that we can save our refrigerator and food!

I just got a flyer in the mail and it looks like a new refrigerator on the low end will cost about 800 dollars. With my surgery, the leak in the roof, and a car accident in the last month...I don't want to take on this expense too.

Poor baby girl! I was sick the first day of kindergarten, and then had to come in the next day as the "new kid" who hadn't been there with everyone else, so I have to say, I think her being sick on the second day is better. Hope she feels better soon! And the refrigerator doesn't explode.

Oh yes I am glad she did not miss the first day. She is feeling better now.

Enough adventure for one day! Hope the rest of the day was very, very boring. Tell Baby Girl I'm glad she's better now, and I sure am glad Baby Boy wanted that snack, so you had to go into the kitchen before a fire started!

I am so glad that your little one is feeling a little better and she is also just beautiful!!! And thank God that you caught the fridge thing in time, that could have been a disaster!! Oh and yes Astrud's school is everything I would want it to be. It is the same school that my grandfather, father, aunts, uncles and my sisters all went to. It is a wonderful school, and now my friends that I grew up with are now teaching my kids!!!
