Coffee And Vomit. Hopefully Not At The Same Time.

Why does sick always happen at night?

What started with two whiny children yesterday, culminated in up-all-night-cleaning-up-bodily-fluids-of-the-disgusting-smelly-variety. Seriously, my house smells like we had a Bulimic Convention last night and someone passed out complimentary Ex-Lax and tongue depressors.

It doesn't help that when Sabrina needs to puke she simply stops in her tracks, wherever she is, and lets fly. She sees no reason to even attempt to reach a toilet or garbage can. My mother delights in telling me repeatedly that I was the same way as a child. I suppose this means someday I will laugh as I watch Sabrina scrub her child's vomit from the couch.

I am now the proud owner of two children that resemble wet noodles draped over my couch. If noodles could whine, that would be my kids. Wet washrags have more oomph than these two.

I'm surviving on caffeine and the hope that they will be done before tonight.

You may have noticed that's two children I mentioned being sick. I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Apparently I have three feet these days.

Unfortunately I still only have two hands. And one of them is firmly wrapped around a coffee mug.

Vomit. My favorite!

UGH!!! Last time Zac was sick, he threw up on his brand new carpet in his room, oh I was so upset. He now has firm instructions that if he isn't going to make it to the bathroom, throw up on the bed -- I can WASH sheets.

Hope they feel better soon, and it skips over Meredith. . . or is that too much to hope for?

Yeah Dani. Probably way too much to hope for. In fact there's probably a whole other pair of shoes to drop. I suspect I'll keep Meredith company on her round in the vomitorium.

Did you know that "vomitorium" actually means exit? As it, the exit doors of a building. Now back to your regularly scheduled vomit stories...
