My emotions have been on a roller coaster this evening.
First of all, Hubs stomach hurt when he got home from work. I got all panicky. Seriously.
The stomach flu has been making these horrid rounds and we've been managing to duck and dodge it so far. I feared the worst and considered calling us all in sick. I didn't, but I thought about it. I started to get so nervous. Which I don't usually do about being sick. Getting so ill around Christmas woke me up to how horrible it really is.
Then, I made some really good broccoli soup. Can't say as I've ever made broccoli soup, but tonight I did. It's called Sneak It To 'Em Broccoli Soup. From a daycare cookbook. The funny part about the whole recipe is that unless your children are colorblind, you can't really sneak in pureed broccoli into a cream based soup. It turns the soup GREEN. Green soup? Goes right along with green eggs and ham. My kids will not, will not in a box, they will not, will not with a fox. B tried it, but didn't love it. My boy wouldn't even touch it. I loved it! I'm having it for lunch tomorrow! I was so excited about some silly green soup!
Then...the news. I rarely watch any, but tonight found myself watching the news. I had fallen asleep in my chair (when did I become my mom?) and woke up to it. So watched the weather. Wind Chill Advisory. -28 wind chills expected. I was fearful of taking my poor wee ones out in such weather. Then they announce that schools are closing. WHAT?!?!? That woke me up. Suddenly I'm throwing my arms in the air, hooting and hollering. Snow day!!! With no snow! Rock on.
So that's my night in a nutshell.
Scared. Nauseous. Soup-slap-happy. Tired. Drowsy. More fear. Happy. Hyper. So content.
