can’t get any worse….

oh wait, it can…  we all have a stomach bug.  it’s gross.  i’ll try to stay away form the gory details, and giiiirls, they are gory.  

from this i have learned a few things.  i think they all revolve mostly around laundry.  back  in the day when i worked in the grouphomes, i’d do laundry for 6 fairly messy adult-type people daily.  that was nothing compared to what i’ve done here in the past 24 hours.

* i will continue to hoard and collect dish towels and washcloths.  for the past year or so i’d toss them out if they were getting ratty and/or didn’t match the current color scheme. but now i’ll stash and hide them on every floor.  i may even buy them from sam’s club in bulk.

* EVERY bed needs more than 1 backup set of sheets.

* a package of pez will dissolve 75% when washed in the pocket of my “mom-uniform”

* i never remember when i have things in my pockets, and i don’t usually check them before i wash.  but in probably my only moment of clarity this weekend, i checked the pocket of my hoodie before i tossed it in the machine.  good thing.  my keys were in there.  if i had washed my car-zappie thing, i would’ve cried.

and how is it that when we all get sick….. babycakes got it first, and was better after about 24 hours.  i got it next, i was sick for about 6 hours before beanie got it, and about an hour later, hunny was felled.  hunny and beanie are still asleep on the couch, yet i have done umpteen loads of laundry, prepared meals for babycakes, and hand washed my entire kitchen floor.  i cannot say that i am well, i’d love to be asleep on the couch too, but alas, there’s stuff to be done.  probably because i’m the mom.

babycakes is awake and squawking, time to carry on!

    Found you from Etsy. You’re doing better than a friend of mine who had to call the carpet cleaners after the last bout of the flu at her place. Hang in there momma!
