Day #.......oh, who's even keeping track anymore?

I got Hunter's quilt done today.

The backing fabric that I'm using is really a love/hate kind of thing. I love that it's really forgiving so you can't see a lot of the stitching, but I hate that it's so stretchy, it makes it hard to keep everything lined up perfectly. Oh well, it's handmade right?

He woke me up this morning at 3 am. Said his stomach hurt. I'm such a good mom that I told him to go to the bathroom, and rolled over to go back to sleep. A few minutes later I heard him throwing up....right next to me on the bed. Good thing he hit it ALL on the pillow (and a spare one at that).
We decided to just stay home instead of going to the family dinner. There are other little kids and I didn't want to expose everyone to our germfest. I still had to cook some stuff to take over (since we live around the corner anyway), so I scrubbed my hands raw everytime I had to touch anything. A few years ago there were a bunch of us in the family that got sick the day after Christmas. I don't want a repeat of that year for sure.
