Random Thoughts and Throwing Up

Captivating title, eh?

(sorry, not for the faint at heart, nor the weak at stomach, continue reading at your own risk)

Having sickness, specifically gastro-intestinal sickness, in the house is so not fun. The sick one (or two, or three, or...) is miserable. The healthy ones are worried "Will I be next?". And I'm stuck cleaning up after most of it. Mr. Extraordinary has been known to help in extreme cases, especially in the night, which is hugely awesome as I'm not at my best in the night. I need sleep like a fish needs water. Well, ok, I suppose fish need water every waking and non-waking (do fish sleep?) moment, but it's almost that bad.

Recent random thoughts-
  • what do I do first? clean the child? my lap?! the floor?
  • ew! it has soaked through my skirt and is running down my leg!
  • impressive splash factor
  • awww, his 1st puke, at 14 months, not bad!
  • I suppose I should wipe down the computer
  • the smell of Lysol reminds me of puke
  • I'd rather smell bleach, it somehow smells cleaner, it just does
  • bleach smell reminds me of swimming
  • well, the legs of the chairs needed a good wiping down
  • this thing didn't work well anyway, right?
  • so I can just toss it rather than disinfect it, right?
  • why does my house only get this clean when someone pukes?
  • I'm kind of hungry, but what if I get sick?
  • at least I don't have to call in sick, I'm already at work
  • is it unfair that I don't get the day off when a child is sick?
  • what can I eat that I wouldn't mind seeing again later?
  • what can I feed them that I wouldn't mind cleaning up later?
  • I wonder who'll be next
  • I suppose I should be wearing gloves as I use all of this bleach
  • eh, gloves are overrated, and I don't know where they are
  • sheesh, it doesn't take long to fry my crazy sensitive skin this way
  • will garlic help?
  • it's been hours, do you think it was a fluke?
  • well, not the gross kind of fluke, yuck...
  • I wonder how many extra loads of laundry will be washed this week?
  • 3 yr old is refusing supper, she may be being finicky... or...
  • remember making Liberty eat when she was 3, and then she puked?
  • if she doesn't want supper, she doesn't need supper
  • hmm, he seems better, but clingy and lethargic
  • Dr. Mommy better keep an eye on this one
  • so far, the rest of the kids seem fine
  • I hope I didn't just jinx it
  • I don't even believe in jinxes, but I still hope I didn't
  • oh, my goodness, TWO new puppies?!
  • oh, fer cute! (Frozen Tundra colloquialism=how cute!)
  • I should sleep tonight, you never know what tomorrow may bring...

Hope all of you feel better soon. T and the kids just all got over being sick. At least you have a great guy to help, I usually am no help at all to T. Get well

Bleach DOES smell cleaner. I may keep that in mind the next time the pukies cycle through here. I used lysol last week trying to keep the baby and I from getting what my husband and step-kids had, and while it worked, the smell.... EW.

Hope it doesn't spread!

I've thought quite a few of those before! And, why is it that the house only gets that clean when someone pukes or a toilet overflows? LOL

I actually like the smell of bleach...I think it is just that it reminds me of clean. Hope everyone is on the mend and that no one else gets sick. God bless - Holly
