When I got home and saw that in the hour that I was gone I had 5 messages I figured something was up. One message was from the school letting me know Abbie had thrown up in the classroom and was waiting in the office to be picked up. Poor Abbie. It was destined for two reasons that she would throw up yesterday morning. First of all, Stephanie had borrowed my carpet cleaner and just about every time she borrows it, someone throws up. Second, I had cursed Abbie by telling her I hoped she would throw up on the morning of March 12. I know, I'm a horrible mom. And very selfish. I was after her ticket to see the musical "Wicked" for that night and figured if she was sick I would get the ticket. Of course, it was all a joke, and I didn't really want her to get sick, but I probably got her so worked up about NOT getting sick, that she DID get sick. She missed a full day of Flop and Read and the Science Fair.
Having said that, this is officially the last time we will let KC have kittens. She's too grouchy when she's pregnant (not much different from humans)! So if you've been holding off on getting your own Bruno kitten, this is your last chance! The rest of the day was perfect. It was a sunny day. We went to Costco (I love Costco) and restocked on vegetables and fruit-I was having major withdrawals. Rick took Connor, Emily and Holly to the Science Fair while I was taught how to be a better RS president at a training meeting and Abbie got to see "Wicked" with Heather and loved it. Sad to say, but I was just as happy to sit on my couch and watch "The Office" and "30 Rock" instead of using the coveted ticket. I was glad she was able to see such an awesome performance. Even if she did start the day by throwing up.
