have you ever...

Have you ever had a week that just got away from you? Like a blink and 7 whole days are just gone? That's what happened to us this week. I took an inadvertent little blog break because of it. I just looked and my last post was almost a week ago! What? How did that happen? Wanna know? Let me tell ya.

I am thrilled with my new wood floors, but I never realized that they came with a terrific amount of DUST!! Like an ungodly amount. I spent Monday and Tuesday wiping down all of our pictures and cabinets and appliances. The entire first floor was a wreck. Then I proceeded to clean this new floor. On my hands and knees. Clean as a whistle. Guess what we forgot. The air filter. Tuesday night my little guy woke up in the middle of the night unable to breathe. I'm not talking a little congestion. I'm talking full on turning purple, gasping for air. Scared the crap out of me. I have never driven so fast in my life. Poor guy was scared out of his mind. They gave him a breathing treatment as soon as we swooped in...oh by the way nurse...he has a mitral valve leak...and that adrenaline you just gave him is skyrocketing his heart rate. AAACK! Needless to say he is just fine now and after 36 hours of no sleep I am too. His doc said it was likely an allergic reaction to all of the sawdust.

And we have had company this weekend. And Nutcracker auditions. And a lawn that I'm sure has been growing jungle animals. In other words we don't have much going on! I did have time time to finish a new pleated bag (for moi) and make an awesome quiche. Whew. I'm beat.

Geez, girl! You wonder why we were mistaken for cuz's? Sounds about like my life. Take a rest & breather...it's my turn for company & cleaning.

Cute bag, too!

Sarah and Jack said...

Oh my, scary stuff with the kidlet. Glad to hear he is ok.

nikko said...

Sheesh. Hopefully you can slow down a bit this week. Glad your little one is okay. It's times like that that I'm glad we have a nebbie in the house. :o)

What pattern did you use for that bag?? It is so cute! I love the fabric, too.

Amanda said...

Sounds like way too much excitement! Breathing problems are scary, I know. I'm glad to hear he's doing better. Don't worry about your yard, you can just charge admission to see the jungle animals!

Jenn Maruska said...

I'm so glad that your little guy is doing better!

One great thing about hardwood floors - the swiffer. In my opinion, the person who invented those should get some type of nobel prize!!!

: )

jessi said...

Wow - sounds crazy! I'm so glad everything is OK with your son. Those panic moments are not fun!

I love your bag!

madmommy said...

Thank the good Lord! Wow, glad things worked out. Can't believe you managed to sew a bag too!
Just leave the yard, then we'll just save a trip to the zoo next time, lol!

Oh, no. What a terrible scare! I hope he's feeling better. Poor thing.

Slow down this week, sis. Take care of yourselves.

Mrs.Kwitty said...

OMGosh--that is a rough one! Glad the little fella is better--and mommy too.

I just realized that I have been doing the dumbest thing!! *duh* I have been to your blog many times and saw the pic you use as your banner and just thought it was a picture from a blog entry that I already read and just clicked away. Here I've been missing all your good stuff! I really am quite a dork sometimes! lol So now I am going to go and do some back reading :-)

Smiles, Karen

Oh--hope you don't mind but I'm gonna stick your link on my blog link list!
