PSF #3--We need a Vacation!

The Beach vacation we took this last summer would be great right about now! Before I tell you why we need a vacation...let me tell you the story behind this picture. We were at Myrtle Beach and we don't usually go to a beach that has umbrellas and chairs set out and when we saw them we thought 'Woo-hoo! Chairs!" After about 45 minutes of using them the nice Life Guard lady informed us that we normally have to pay to use them! THAT'S why no one was using them! :) So I had to take the pic to remember our "We're from Alabama" moment! ;)

Now back to the question, Why do we need a vacation? Well let's just say that I have had a kid home almost weekly since school began due to sickness! And on top of that I had morning sickness for almost 5 months that laid me out!

This week our flavor of sickness is Strep. Last week it was a bad head cold and in the next pictures we all were either coming down with the stomach flu or had already had it! Of course they all played the part when the camera clicked and then went back to their sick selves! There is my woe is me moment and the reason I think we deserve a nice vacation at the beach! My kids take Vitamins with extra Vitamin C and eat pretty healthy and I even have been sanitizing like a mad woman! So, I think it is just our year because last year we hardly got any sicknesses at all!

Oh and please excuse my 3 year old budding artists mural behind the couch. It wasn't completed due to mommy coming downstairs with a clean load of laundry and dropping said laundry while beholding said mural and taking the lovely tools away that made the mural! ;)

Wow, that's a lot of sickness. And who ever heard of paying to use beach chairs? Wow. That's just ... wow. Yes, I agree, you guys need a vacation lol.

My Magic Mom said...

Sounds like a great time for a vacation! Hope everyone gets well and stays well for a long time.

It's no fun being sick or having sick kids!! Get well soon!!

We've made the same mistakes on chairs and umbrellas too :)

Chris said...

Oh I hear you!

I'll bet a "We're from Alabama" moment is a lot like a "We're from Utah" moment.

VERY funny!

those deck chairs look so inviting! i guess you guys are totally over winter and illness huh?

Claire said...

Gosh 5 months with morning sickness ergg I hated it. I put together an information site for all those with morning sickness. If you had any coping strategies it would be great if you would come and fill our guestbook.
Wishing you a sickness free time.

Ah yes, the beach would be fantastic right about now! When we were in Florida 2 weeks ago I wanted an umbrella too. It wasn't until we saw $25 a day that I decided to sit on the sandy ground in the sun. LOL!

Sneaky Momma said...

You poor dear. You do need a vacation!
Those chairs and umbrellas sure come with a hefty price tag for rental. :) We've made the same mistake before.

Susie said...

oh holy crappy sickies! you certainly do need a vaca!
I understand the moment, because I would have been right next to you doing the same thing.
At this point though, I'd pay LOTS just to sit in a beautiful chair with lots of sunshine!!!!!

Aly @ Lip Zip said...

Oh no! I hope your house is germ-free soon. I think we all just pass it along, don't we? So much for sharing being such a great thing.

Jennifer said...

BLESS YOU!!! You deserve a vac-a!

Momma@Live. Laugh. Pull your hair out said...

I say you are due for a vacation!!! I hope the sickie germs leave your house soon!

Angela said...

Oh please, do the chairs have coin slots or something? That's ridiculous. Hope you all get better soon!

CC said...
