birthday cake and the flu

I think that about sums up the week around here thus far.

Bumpo had his birthday party this past weekend which was a huge success. Presents and kindergarteners abound.

However, he did walk away with one present we weren't prepared for. The flu. And a bad one too. We're going on day four of the sucker with no relief in sight. He's miserable with a high fever, congested chest, and a sore throat. And to make matters worse, I haven't had a decent night's sleep in just as long. With staying up constantly worring about his breathing, or admistering yet another treatment from our good friend Mr. Nebulizer, exhausted is an understatement.

Oh, and did I mention the best part?!! I think I've gained about five-hundred pounds. Because, guess what, the only friend a girl can find at four o'clock in the morning, when the rest of her family is sound asleep in their beds, is the yummy leftover birthday cake that is (supposed to be) hidden in the fridge.

Damn cake.
