Smells Like Poop

Yes, you read that right. The hotel room smells like poop. Why do the boys take dumps at the SAME exact moment? Why??

Anyway- I know you're all here to hear about how today has gone, thus far. Well, it's going...that's for sure!

Here's the rundown:

1) Andy felt terrible for me, and how my day went yesterday, so he got me all kindsa goodies. He brought me candy, a Starbucks Frappucino, salad for dinner (you don't understand... I have a severe love relationship with salad!), and got the VEGGIE pizza (not the ALL meat) for dinner. He's too good to me. ;)

2) Matthew did well, last night. I drugged him up and he fell asleep...AND slept all night. Thank goodness!

3) Adam did NOT fall out of bed last night! Thank Goodness.

4) I got to sleep ALL by myself! Adam and Andy slept together and I slept diagonal on the bed. Is it terrible to say I really enjoyed having a bed to myself?

5) Both boys woke up pretty happy, today. Matthew was a little warm, so I gave him more Tylenol and Motrin and he seemed to be in a pretty decent mood. He ate a good breakfast, and seemed to be feeling pretty well.

6) We went to one of the local malls, played at the play place, and rode the carousel (in the middle of the mall! I wish we had that back home!!). We rode the carousel THREE times. I felt like I was going to puke. Apparently, I can't spin in circles anymore. We also bought Adam a Diego shirt, to wear to the show on Saturday! (Many of you asked when the show was and I forgot to post about it. The show is at 11 am on Saturday. We are going to be sleepy people, during this show... good thing it was free!)

7) We then stopped by daddy's work, for a visit. Adam wooed all of the women and Matthew spent the majority of the time crying. At least it wasn't blood curdling, this time.

8) We are now back at the room, Matt is sleeping and Adam is running around in only a diaper, drinking hot chocolate (compliments of the hotel...ha ha. Love this free hot chocolate, coffee, cookies, cakes...goodies galore!).

9) As long as Matt wakes up well, we are going to go find some new grocery stores (I have a small obsession with grocery stores, and love walking around them). We already found Publix (much like Giant Eagle, but dare I say I like it more????). I think we're going to go on the search for Piggly Wiggly and something called HG Hills (I think that's what it's called). Those are the three we don't have at home, so I need to see them. They also have Kroger here, but those are on every corner at home so I don't need to visit them here.

We might also do some more shopping. It's rainy, today, so it's a good day to shop. We are in a pretty heavy retail area, so WHY NOT?! ;)

As for tomorrow? I think we're going to hit the art museum. I love me some good art, and I love art museums! I am hoping my kids will love it, just as much! :)

Thanks for the prayers, everyone! I can feel them working!

You are HILARIOUS! And I am also sorry that your room smells like poop. Who knew that boys started out being so smelly and just never changed?!

I am SO WITH YOU -- I LOVE the grocery store. It's among my favorite places to go. I'm glad that I will at least have one other person in my therapy session for this strange love...

Brittany,
I am crying I am laughing so hard!
I feel every thing you are going through!
I went through all of this with you and your sister when we traveled when you were babies!
Remember when the mice in the motel in Chicago became your and Michelle's pet??
I love you so much and you and one heck of a woman and mother!!

OMG - I SO know that hotel poop smell and you can't even open the window to let in the air.

Piggly Wiggly is DA BOMB - you MUST buy the boys the "I'm stickin' with the pig" shirts. I didn't know they had Piggly Wiggly that far up north.

I hope your trip continues to improve!

I'm glad it was a better day....even if they're still a bit feverish! Salad as your ultimate dinner - me too! I have a grocery store obsession, too. I'd have all my coupons with me, looking for the best deals. HA!!

Amy said...

Do you still have the pink piggly wiggly shirt I got for you???

I love Publix but we don't have them here in TX. That was our grocery store while on vacay in FL. They have the BEST spinach artichoke dip. If you like that kind of thing you should go get some. It is YUM-MY!

Glad your day was better and hope you have fun tomorrow!
