This morning bright & early my phone rang ... I answered it ... it was my brother who rarely ever calls me. He asked how we were doing & if we had plans for the day ... we didn't so we made plans for him to come over. I haven't seen/heard from him since Father's Day ... which means I haven't seen my nephews either. For those of you who are new to my blog ... my brother's wife gave birth to twins in January.
It was so great to see them ... they've gotten so big since Father's Day. Of course knowing they were coming over I had to go shopping. I bought them each an outfit & of course I got a few small toys. nothing major, just something so they would know that auntie Em was thinking of them. The visit was great but much to short.
I got the feeling that my brother had stayed away cause there were some family issues a month or so back. Of course I knew what they were but I wasn't about to bring it up & have things rehashed. Thankfully he didn't bring them up either. It's just better left in the past & him not hearing all the hurtful things that I heard said. No matter which side is right I love both of my brothers & my dad & just like I wouldn't bad mouth my brother to my dad & baby brother ... I won't do it with my other brother. I think it's best like that. I've made the mistake in the past of repeating their words & in the end I was made out to be the bad guy ... never again.
Anyway, remember me saying in the last entry that DS was being lazy cause he stayed up all night. Well, all day long yesterday he kept telling me he didn't feel well. I chalked it up to him being tired ... I was wrong. He kept us all up all night long with his throwing up and crappin all over the place. Poor guy ... he was so sick. He still isn't feeling perfect but I've been keeping him on DayQuill to help him feel human. He was a little upset that he wouldn't be able to see the twins ... he's great with kids. DD could care less & chose not to show herself but for maybe a minute. I had purchased her a new book earlier this morning so her & a new book ... forget about it, there's no pulling her away from it.
Well, I guess that's about all from me today. DS is in bed, DD has her nose in the book, DH is watching his football game ... and me ... I think I'm gonna go take a nap. =D Have a great weekend.
