You Might Want to Steer Clear of our House this Weekend

Last night, just as I was coming home from taking the kids to piano, Scott and Nathan got sick.

I was secretly grateful we were a few minutes late getting home so that Scott had to be the one to scrub out the carpet.

(Don't tell him I said that)

Don't worry, I had my turn later when Brett and JD were sick several times over, from the hours of 8 PM until this morning. Luckily, they managed to hit the toilet, a bowl, or the bed sheets and blankets almost every time.

By 5:00 AM our hampers were overflowing and we were down to using just sleeping bags.

Clara also had a high fever all night and Samantha has been coughing and aching as well.

I've been feeling inklings of similar symptoms coming on, but I refuse to let them get any worse.

If I get sick, who is going to plow through the laundry, clean out the bowls of sickness, and administer the Motrin and Vicks Vaporub?


  1. So brutal! I hope everyone starts feeling better soon.

  2. Oh so sad!!! We just had that at our house!!! First Jacob for 48 hours...then Mommy, with Daddy following a close third in line. One week after we were all healed...JACOB GOT IT AGAIN!!!! This time just a quick 24 hour dose. But boy oh boy was it awful!!! I'm feelin for ya over here!!! Wishing for a quick recovery for you all!!!!

  3. Yikes, that doesn't sound fun. I hope everyone is feeling better soon. Let me know if you need anything!

  4. Sorry to hear it! I hope you are all feeling better soon. And that a magic fairy came to clean up that laundry!

  5. That's the worst! I don't know if it's better to all be sick at once and get it over with, or better to get it one after the other so there's less work at once. I hope you all got over it quickly. xo


I love hearing from you! :)
