"I’m tired of looking at those peppers!"
That’s what my brother told me last week when we were on the phone. He didn’t really yell at me; there is rarely any elevation in his voice. But I took creative license b/c the title of this blog post would not be as effective nor eye catching if it had a period instead of an exclamation point. ;o) So, I’m writing a new blog post just for him, so he does not have to look at the Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers at the top when he visits my blog.
We bought a twin sized blowup mattress 6 years ago because we were tired of sleeping on Ben’s floor when he was sick. We also bring it out when someone sleeps over. My brother is our most frequent sleepover guest. :o) We blew up the mattress and put it on bedroom floor Friday night because, after what happened in Connecticut, the hubs and I wanted us all together. B and the hubs slept in our queen size bed and I slept on the blowup. I love that mattress; it’s so comfy! Just like a select comfort bed, I adjust the air to the squishy level I like, I lay down and stay in that position all night long.
B has never slept on the blowup mattress so we let him sleep on it Saturday night. And the hubs let him sleep on it last night, as well. I woke up around 2am this morning because B was moaning. I went over to wake him, thinking he was having a nightmare. He wasn’t. He was already awake and moaning because he felt like he was going to throw up. He also said that he felt that way the night before but never said anything to us. We got him up to put him in our bed and he started to gag. I got the trash can and he gagged again, but nothing came up. He laid down in our bed and the hubs and I started going through everything B ate to find a common denominator that would make him sick 2 days in a row. After a minute, B said he felt much better and a few minutes after that he felt all better and fell back to sleep in our bed. Then the hubs figured out what it was: B had gotten motion sickness from sleeping on the blowup mattress! He gets motion sick so easily. SMH
B said 2 things yesterday that I want to share with y’all:
- God makes the weekend, but our family makes it fun!
- If I ever propose marriage during Christmas time I would get down on one knee, hold out the ring and say, “(Insert name here), with your love so bright, won’t you guide my life tonight?”
