Let me tell you guys a funny story.
I'd been hearing a lot from everywhere and everyone this thing about how drinking grape juice every day will head off the stomach flu. Something about how the grape juice makes your stomach alkaline and doesn't allow the virus to survive in there. Well, the flu has been going around like crazy here lately, so on our weekly grocery shopping trip last Sunday, I picked up a bottle of good old fashioned 100% grape juice. Religiously, all week long, I drank my grape juice. No sickness was going to get me now!
You see where this is going, right? Fast forward to Friday and guess what happened -- the stomach flu.
The weekend started off so promising. Nick got home early from work and Hadley had taken a great nap, so we headed out to get Mexican for dinner (I can barely type that now sadly). We had dinner and drinks and headed home to put our happy baby to bed and park our butt on the couch to watch Homeland. Fast forward a couple of hours later and I am dying. Let's just say Friday night was a rough one and leave it at that.
SO, the grape juice thing totally does not work and I am the unfortunate proof.
It wasn't until Sunday afternoon that I started to feel better, so the weekend was pretty much a wash. But I'm just thankful to finally be saying goodbye to this bug, especially in time for my little Sunday night routine. I think Sunday evenings get a bad wrap with having to get back at it in the morning, but I kind of love them. I like to look at it as the beginning of a new week and get all my crap in order.
I put the baby to bed, wash all the bottles for the next day, wipe down the kitchen, pick up the living room, and sweep the entryway. It takes me about 30 minutes, but it's worth it to start the week with a clean(ish) house. Then I usually park my butt on the couch - TV, reading (seriously cannot put this book down), or blogging - before taking a hot shower and crawling into bed, preferably a bed with clean sheets that I washed earlier in the day. It's great.
So that's what I'm doing right now. In the middle of my little routine. And because I haven't been able to get jumpsuits off my mind, I'm about to buy this amazing black one that is only $36 right now!!! Talk about a steal - that's really how I like to start my week - and then I'm going to test out this hair rinse tonight. Wish me luck that I don't reek like ACV all day tomorrow.
