March Madness

Today was a definite "madness" day. Actually it all started last night. We told Micah that we would take him to Dairy Queen if he ate his dinner last night. He did. So we went to DQ and enjoyed our ice cream but I had noticed that Eli didn't eat a single bite. He was laughing and squirming all over the bench but not eating any ice cream. As we are getting ready to go, Eli begins fussing and something inside me (motherly intuition, maybe?) just knew what was going to happen. Right then and there he proceeded to vomit...3 times. I'll spare you the details but it was a mess and he was miserable. He still wasn't quite himself today but only vomited once. Micah was a trooper last night but laid around most of the day and ran a fever on and off. I woke up (can you call it waking up if you never actually got into a good sleep?) feeling pretty poorly and with a huge headache. So my dear Andy graciously stayed home to doctor all of us. It turned out to be a nice, mellow day around our house. We watched a few movies, ate lots of saltines, and tuned into the first day of the NCAA tournament.

Speaking of the NCAA tournament, Andy and I decided to fill out brackets and follow March Madness this year. I use to do this every year for many, many years but haven't done it since high school. Andy, on the other hand, well I'll just say that I highly doubt he's ever filled out a bracket! Poor guy. Anyway, we aren't entirely sure what we're betting on but so far he's ahead of me by one game. It has already been a blast watching the games and giving each other a rough time when one of our chosen teams ends up losing. Who knows, maybe we'll start a new yearly tradition?
