Catch-up

Well, I let myself get so far behind in updating that the task of catching-up seemed impossible; consequently, I never "had time" to write that super-long post(s). So, I guess the time has come to admit defeat and just skip the last few months and start fresh here, at the end of October.

**********************************************************

Will and I had a stay-at-home day today after his first-ever bout of a stomach bug. It started yesterday afternoon, but we all just assumed at the first incident he was suffering from reflux, which he is mostly over but still has a little problem with every now and then. Rachel and I took Will to OKC First's Fall Fest, which I think he quite enjoyed once he got there and figured out what it was all about. He was really good for the Bible walk, where people from the church acted out scenes from the Bible and then distributed candy that matched ("In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth"=Milky Ways). Will really liked getting his piece of candy at every stop. It was also funny to hear the little kids in our group say, "Don't forget the duck" when the Bible characters were distributing candy.

He only had about half a pack of Smarties at the festival, so I cannot blame the candy for the horrid night that followed. Will went to sleep as usual, and woke around 11 and puked all over me and himself. He did the same again around 1:30, 2:30, and 4:30. Only one of those times did I manage to get him positioned over a trashcan in time. I went through three shirts and was down to only one or two pillows before the ordeal was over. Since I didn't realize he was sick till the middle of the night, there wasn't time to get Judy lined up to keep him for my class at 8 today, so I elected to stay home with him. I am waiting for the inevitable . . . when I come down with it.
