Send Laundry Detergent

So, we had a lot of fun plans for this weekend, but instead we are doing this:

In case you don’t know what that is exactly, I will explain it to you:

The Boy Child is sleeping next to a trashcan while I clean up all the places he marked his three year old territory with the stomach flu.

In other words, we are having a grand old time!

Seriously though, I’m over the germ factory we seem to be running around here. My only hope is that because my kids are in daycare and school that we are just catching everything right away and then will be good for the rest of winter.

A girl can hope, right??


Before I go though I wanted to leave you with two articles that I wrote. Typically I just pop in here and say something to the effect of “oh and hey if you are bored you can also check these out,” but this week I feel a little stronger about these articles.

This one in particular “I Didn’t Realize My Husband Had Raped Me On Our Wedding Night” was a tough one for me to write. I debated pulling it from my editor several times but in the end decided that if even one woman read it and was able to see what was going on in her own marriage, then it would be worth it. So if you don’t mind reading and sharing, let’s make it worth it!

Also, do you want to know my biggest pet peeve ever?

I would say that I’m a fairly easy going person but if you want to know a sure fire way to get my blood boiling, this would be it. “Sorry, You’re NOT a Single Mom Just Because Your Husband Works A Lot.” Seriously, stop claiming my title.

Well, I’m going to head back to washing bedding and cleaning carpet, so have a little fun for me this weekend ok?

In fact, guys in particular, TAKE NOTE.

“9 Really OBVIOUS Things We Wish You Did More Of In Bed.”

Alright, I’m procrastinating now.

Laundry, barfy kids, here I come.

Yours Truly,

Very tired and totally grossed out,

    One of my friends is a kindergarten teacher and she says she can always tell the kids that were in daycare/nursery school from the ones that were home. The daycare kids are out of school much less than those who were home. It makes me worry about when my little girl goes to school, but she picks up plenty of germs at the playground.

    I hope your kids are feeling better by now and that you didn't catch it too!

      Thanks! The Boy Child is on day five of a very high fever (104 last time I took it). Took him to the doc and he tested positive for Influenza A, so now we just wait it out. 🙁

      So far The Girl Child and I have been good. I have been vomited on, had my face sneezed on, and have been snuggled up with this kid for days and am still feeling pretty good, so maybe there is hope for me yet lol. I was surprised The Girl Child didn’t get sick. They are always accidentally switching cups and toothbrushes (yuck) so I know she has been exposed too.

      Send prayers please 🙂
