Friday night: Put C to bed. Clean house for party Sat. Read and/or scrap with leftover time.
Saturday: Run at 6 am. Out to brunch and Little Mermaid play with C and G. Home for lunch, divide and conquer with G: one of us goes to grocery store, the other cleans house. Make guacamole. Have 35 people over for party at 4 pm. Cleanup. Watch movie.
Sunday: Go to gym with C, then Borders (our usual Sunday routine). If weather is nice, drive to Tulip Festival with C in the afternoon, take lots of pictures.
Friday night: Home late. Cheese and turkey sandwiches for dinner. C throws it all up at bedtime. Kind of hope it was something in the food, except that I had same food. Clean, hoping that weekend is not falling apart. 10:30, crying alerts me to more throwing up in C’s room. Start first of many loads of laundry. Decide to sleep in C’s room. Get up every 2 hours to hold her while she throws up, start new load of laundry.
Saturday morning: Call friends at 8:30 to see if they can–surprise!–host party for 35 people at their house in 5.5 hours. Start tracking down 35 people to inform them of change. In between, laundry + crying, throwing up kid. When she falls asleep at the table while eating ice chips, wash hands very thoroughly and make guacamole. Send G to grocery store/party at 2. Hold C all afternoon. By 5, has not held down liquids at all, is only awake for 30 minutes at a time, listless, weak. Call 24 hour nurses line. At 5:40, leave for hospital. Wait for one hour for doctor, who prescribes anti-nausea medication + 20 minutes + juice. Wait for one hour. Doctor returns, asks how juice went. Point out that we have yet to get the anti-nausea medicine. Doctor leaves quickly, nurse soon arrives. Anti-nausea medicine goes down fast, stays down for weepy 20 minutes as C begs for juice. Juice stays down! Yippee! Home at 9:30.
Sunday: "Sleep in" (well deserved after previous night!) C in our bed after 7 am. Up for good at 9 am. Grocery store for more juice. Head to work.
