Bypass, and Other "B" Words

I should have known better than to make an actual list of blog posts I wanted to get done.  What happened immediately after making an official "list"?

Barfing.

Lots and lots of barfing. 

I can't even keep track of all the sanitary loads I did over the last week as Bug transformed into Linda Blair, and projectile vomited over anything and everything within a 3 foot radius. 

He's better now, but last night Bubble thought it looked like fun, and could tell that I was bored, so he joined in the puking party. 

Needless to say, blogging has been the furthest thing from my mind.

To top it all off, my dad has been very sick lately.  In and out of the hospital regularly for the past year.  It was finally decided that the only way to improve his quality of life was for him to have bypass surgery.

On Tuesday, he underwent a double bypass surgery, and as someone who knows what's it's like to have their chest "cracked", I have volunteered to go help him once he gets out of the hospital. 

To prepare for a week long trip away from Roon and the kids, I have been working like a crazy person to get the house in pristine condition before I leave.  Partly, because I don't want Roon to have to stress about cleaning on top of working and childing rearing, but it's also for selfish reasons.
Truth be told, I don't want to come home to a HUGE mess and lose all my momentum. 

Bottom line, I hope y'all forgive me for not being around much for the next couple of weeks.  I still love ya.  I promise...

Welp. I'll just text ya.
And when you said "cracked" it made my butt hurt. Which is weird, because of butt cracks, but that's not what I was thinking, it's just something...
nevermind.
Anyway. I LOVE YOU!

i hope his surgery goes well. I will keep him in my prayers.

And yes puking really is the worst sickness as it creates so much extra work on top of just caring for everyone who isn't feeling well.

So sorry :(
