Pk really does seem to have a flair for it. She doesn't puke much but when she does, wow! This was one of those days. We were sitting in her room, reading stories under her blanket and all of a sudden, it started and it was impressive. Ick. She seemed totally fine before and after so we debated what to do. Dh called our wonderfully understanding friends who suggested that if it didn't continue, we were welcome. We started to pack (why does taking an 18 month old any require taking most of the contents of our home???) and then, round 2. At that point, it was obvious that we weren't going anywhere.
Typically, she woke up from her nap totally fine, which led me to doubt whether we should have stayed home... I decided that some fresh air would be nice so we got bundled up and went for a really long walk through town. While it wasn't seeing our friends, it ended up being a nice way to spend the last day of my March Break.
I live in a small town, a village, really. I think there are 3500 people. Walking here is wonderful. We spend most of the time on the road and the sights are wonderfully diverse. I used to walk miles in the city and enjoyed it but I love it so much more here. We saw horses, cows and farms within 20 minutes of home. We walked through woods and parks, I got to spy on houses (I love checking out what people are doing) and Pk got to see her fill of dogs. I don't know whether I will get to the point that living in such a small place with grow tired but right now, I love it. Everyone says hello, there is a unique wave to anyone who passes in a car if you aren't on a major road and everyone who is out front of a house you pass has to make a comment about how cute Pk is or about the weather.
What a great way to start spring. Now, if only we can completely get rid of the horrible smell and find a date to see our friends...
