One Hot Valentine...

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you!!

I wish I could say we've had a wonderful day full of lovin' but that's just not the case. Josh has been home from school all week with a fever. I thought today was the last of it and he would be fine to go back tomorrow but it just spiked again! Wow, 3 days off of school is too much!!

To add to my frustration... yesterday Seth squeezed blue craft paint in several places on the playroom carpet. Jeff and I were up last night scrubbing that carpet and trying to clean it until 8:30. At one point we both realized our fingers were bleeding due to the scrubbing!

Then today while I was organizing all the paint and putting it up high on a shelf in the scrapbook room, he somehow found a bottle of black paint. He went into his room and squeezed that on the floor. I started crying and stuck him in the tub. Then went to find all the rags I could find and started blotting that up. I called Jeff and he came home right away to help get it out. I also called my friend Julie to see if she could bring her carpet cleaner over here right away. She did and we got so much of it up but I think we're still going to need a professional!

Pray that nothing else will happen the rest of the night because I just don't think I can handle it!

Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet...and no Seth finger/footprints of blue or black paint... :)

Hang in there, Stacey!! Tina was telling me about your crazy week. Maybe Seth will grow up and be an artist and sell his paintings and be rich and famous!!

Oh Stace... Scrubbing is NEVER a good Valentine's activity. I'm so sorry that your's was filled to the brim with it.

May your day after Valentine's be so much more relaxing and fun than the day of!

Wow, Stacey. Sounds like you had a rough day! I hope you have a better day today.
