How not to spend New Years Eve

Around 2 a.m. Eligh woke up screaming in pain, which eventually lead to a sleepless night of tending to a vomiting little boy. Soon after, the hubby joined in. Sleep was not on my side.

With all this, we still decided to take our six hour drive back to Missouri.

The hubby was in the back on the floor with the kids sitting next to one another. Our normal drive with maybe three to four max stops took an extra half hour, one change of clothes, and seven stops. Yes, double the stops.

It was a long, exhausting day and evening which has involved baths, laundry, and way too much unpacking.

While I may not be enjoying a drink or two, or celebrating with family and friends counting down to the new year, I am thankful to be with my family sickness or not.

I do hope, though, that the new year starts of better than it has ended.


  1. You poor rock for making the drive though. There's just something about being sick in your own house. Feel better soon!!

  2. Glad you made it home safely and this year is the best one yet for you.
