Round 4 (or is it 5, I've lost count)....

It came without warning, without pain without aches. It came very suddenly, not one could escape.

We have entered round 4 (or possibly 5) of PukeFest '07. Is it even possible to be sick that often? It seems like once a month since December (possibly November - I can't remember that far back) we have been hit with the stomach bug. Yesterday it started with Husband and moved to Einey. I may or may not have gotten it, if so it was very mild. I am not taking the kids to playgroup for at least a week because last time, we went FIVE DAYS return to school once she is feeling better, but between kids getting sick. We thought we were out of the woods, you know, the whole 24 hour thing, but nope. I will let Eineythat's it.

There is nothing worse than trying to lift a puking child off the top of a bunk bed when you can hardly reach her. Did I mention she was puking? So we all stripped and showered, threw one load of disgusting bed stuff in the laundry and tried to sleep. She slept well and that was it, but Husband was up every 2 hours and I slept lightly.

This morning, I have already washed 3 loads of puky blanket, Lysoled the entire house and am working on washing everyone else's bedding. I am minutes away from scrubbing down the entire house, floor to ceiling. However, I think that may end up being a project set out over days - one room at a time. That way I don't neglect the girls and I can get everything done. I want to clean the baseboards, wash the walls, scrub the floors and organize the toys (yes I just did this, but this is a once a week job).

Thankfully, spring arrives tonight. With it, I hope the warm weather arrives, so we can air out the house and get out in the fresh air much much more often.

I am sick of being sick!

Think of all the immunity you're all building up! Hopefully this, Einey's first year being exposed to all the germs at school, will be the worst and the kids' new tolerance will get them through the coming years much more easily. I hope everyone feels better soon!

This is the worst. It was like this for us last year, over and over.

I hope you are better soon! Poor babies, all of you ...

I hate cleaning up puke almost as much as when it comes out the other end. Hope you guys are back in business soon!
