Our Weekend

Well, we had an eventful weekend over here!  How about you?  Darren and I got to watch my cutie nephew Brocky for the weekend!  My sister Kristy and her hubby went to NYC last Thursday.  Mom had all 5 of the fartin' Martin's till Friday evening.  Then the older 4 went to their other Grandma's while I got the baby =).  I was looking forward to a fun weekend.  But...the weekend had other plans...

When my mom dropped of Brock, she mentioned he had been a little warm and clingy.  So I took him home, gave him some medicine and put him to bed, no problem.
Then the fun started...  Friday night, I decided to wash my face with this sample face wash from Melaleuca.  First, I put just a little of the face lotion on my cheek just to see what would happen.  I waited a few hours to see if I'd get a rash or something, but nothing happened!  So what did I do?  I used it all.  Washed my face, then used the face lotion and went to bed.  I woke up around 6 am to give Brock a bottle and when I would blink, I could tell I was a little swollen.  But I didn't want to SEE how bad it was, so instead I got an ice pack, put it on my face, then went back to bed.  Brock woke back up around 8 so I got out of bed and...looked in the mirror.  I was SO swollen, my eyelids had 3 rolls.  You read that right, 3 ROLLS!  I had a chin dimple as well, and very...plump...lips.  I took a picture, but not sure I want to post it on's bad.  Lets just say, I looked a little like this...
Don't believe me?  Ask my husband...  I was SO MAD!  But that's what I get for trying a new face wash.  I ended up going to the doctor and getting a magic pill that made my face all better a short 24 hours later =).

Anyway, then poor Brock had a fever all weekend and was always sad and wanting to be held...  My husband is amazing.  He was up with Brock at 5 am till about 7 am on Sunday morning, rocking him, feeding him, trying to get him to go back to sleep, etc.  We loved having Brock, but it was just sad seeing him feeling to cruddy.  Poor guy...  Hopefully he's feeling better.  Thanks for letting us watch your little baby boy, Kristy!  Hope you had a fun time in NYC =)

Eventful weekend, that was!  How was yours?  Do you have all your Christmas shopping done?
