Get Better, Baby

Well yesterday was a toughie for my oldest. She had a headache when she woke up and was moving slower than usual. But she went to school. Around 11 am I got a call from the her saying she threw up but didn't know if she should come home or not. Well DUH!!! Of course I'm gonna go get her! The poor thing spent the rest of the day and evening in bed. She took lots of naps because, as she said, when she slept she wouldn't throw up. I think she slept from 1-5 pm.

On the bright side, I got a great workout going up and down the stairs - whew! And, she was finally able to get down 1/2 C of chicken noodle soup, 4 saltines, 1/2 banana, & some apple juice. YEAH! This morning she was feeling much better and wanated to go to school. Not sure if I'll let her go to gymnastics tonight. Illness doesn't get the same treatment when you're a competitive gymnast. It kinda gets put on the back burner. If your arm is broken you can still work legs, if your leg is hurt, you can still work upper body.

Anywho, I did throw together a quick Get Well card for her yesterday so I thought I'd share it with you. I stuck to soft understated colors that wouldn't overstimulate her senses. Normally she like bright neon colors.

Stamps: Doodle This (or maybe it's Doodle That - can't remember) by Stampin Up
Ink: Black Stazon (love the almond smell), Copics markers
Paper: Kraft & Aqua Mist by Papertrey Ink, dsp (Ginger?) by Stampin Up
Accessories: Vinyl Thickers
