One of those days

Yesterday was one of those days where just about anything that could go wrong, did.

Without boring you with ALL the details here is the shortest possible summary of our Sunday:
Head to church- Jared gets violently ill on the way there and we spend way too much time at a gas station bathroom.

We finally make our way home, me trying to drive as smoothly as possible because I've got one sick boy 
in my passenger seat.

We're home and realize Jared's phone has officially bit the dust. Won't charge, won't turn on. Not good.

After a few hours of Jared recovering and me force-feeding him salty crackers and VitaminWater he feels up 
to going out and trying to get his phone fixed.

Three hours and three cell phone stores later, we still don't have a working phone and we head home defeated- Jared feeling nauseated again, and I'm developing a headache.

We remember we have to pick up Jared's car when we're almost home; turn around and take Jared back to his car; 
head home for (what we thought was) the FINAL time of the night.

My headache lasts almost 4 hours, bordering on a migraine and we can't find any medicine in the whole house.

Jared runs out again for food (because he's finally feeling up to it) and Advil. Bless his soul.

But you know what?! At the end of the day, we just looked at each other and were able to laugh about 
how chaotic and awful the day had been. 

"Well that sucked!" is what we were both thinking. But I wouldn't want to have a sucky day with anyone else- that's for sure. Mushy post? Maybe. But it IS the week of Valentine's Day, so I think it's okay. ;)

Here's to hoping this Monday goes off without a hitch!

  4. Ugh!! Those kinds of days are sometimes inevitable and TOTALLY the worst--we've had days (weeks, months, etc) like that. But you're exactly right. You know you've got the right partner when you can be knee deep in crap, look at each other and just laugh. Hope you're both feeling better!

  6. A gas station bathroom is the absolute last place I'd like to be sick in. They make me sick even when I feel perfectly fine!

  19. Hang in there. Hope you're feeling better. My hubby was sick recently too and it was the worst. And then the dog got sick too. And then I didn't sleep for two night because I was cleaning up illness. Ugh.

  20. Yuck! SO sorry y'all had that kind of day. Gross. We were realizing sunday that there are two things we have never experienced together: a car accident (thank God!) or vomiting. Isn't that weird?! Neither of us has been sick to the stomach (to the point of throwing up) in our 4 years of marriage! I guess the time will come... not looking forward to it! Hopefully we never experience the car wreck thing, though! Yikes!

    Hope he eventually got a working phone?!

  22. Those are the days that we always look back on and laugh about!
    Like today for example we ate at a gas station (rudy's) for vday since we had to cancel our plans since I had to help my grandma pick up her stolen car that was recovered. The crazy life we live....my poor kids watched TWO movies in my car while we filled out paperwork in a cop car.
