I should have known it was too good to be true.

First, it was too good to be true that Caden only threw up the one time. Second, it was too good to be true that my kids let me sleep until nearly 9am - it should have been my first clue that something was wrong. And sure enough, walking into Caden and Declan's room I see it: Caden is covered in puke once again. God's blessing was that there is no school today due to the extreme cold, so I didn't have to worry about calling him in or anything.

Long stories made short, Avery has been crying off and on due to tummy cramps for over 24 hours now. We're pushing the clear liquids and hoping she comes around, but as of today she's still upset and hurting. Caden is back to puking, and Declan just thinks he needs to add to the din by crying a lot. James is on his way home, but not simply because I am stressed and need the help...

He's headed home because our furnace quit working this morning. HAHAHAHA! You might as well laugh, it's funny at this point. It's 62 degrees in here. He figures it's as simple as the vent outside is frozen over, and we truly hope so!
