Sick again!

There is currently a bad stomach flu ripping through our fair city. The children in Natalie’s school are dropping like flies and have been for about a month. Natalie suffered with it two weeks ago over Easter. She felt fine when I picked her up at school on Thursday so we stayed to play at the park. She went from fine to “my tummy hurts” to vomiting in 15 minutes flat. It hit that fast. Then the poor kid had to walk home where she crashed on the couch. I got out my trusty bottle of bleach and disenfected every conceivable surface in the house, twice! Then I had to phone Mum and Dad to let them know we wouldn’t be coming for Easter for fear of infecting them too. I felt so bad for Natalie, she was crushed. Then I waited to see who else in the house would succumb to the nasty virus. Imagine my delight when the 1 week marker came and went and we were all fine!

Last night (2 weeks after his sister) Nicholas awoke at 3:30am, covered in vomit. ICK. At least he was happy,  bouncing around apologizing for the mess in the bed. He awoke at 5am sick again, then was up for the day at 7. He’s been funny today, he’ll go from bouncing around to writhing in pain on the couch in like, a nanosecond. Seriously! Now, I know what you’re thinking, “why is he bouncing around if he’s sick?” Well, the only way I can think of to keep him still involves duct tape, crazy glue and possibly staples. I am thinking CAS may have issues with this option. So now we sit and wait. I am hoping the worst has past and he’ll start keeping food down now. I’m off to disinfect the house. Again.

Time Flies

April is half over. CRAZY! We are in the process of several home renovation projects. Refinishing furniture, new floors and now the garage door. I am the queen of starting projects and not finishing them. This week I have been stripping the garage door and let me tell you it was far more work than I had anticipated! I think it is almost ready to prime, I just have to fix a few rotten spots first. The kids have been fantastic, helping me and not getting in the way.Too much…

Natalie has a loose molar and it is really bothering her for some reason. We’ve never had that issue before, I’m not too sure what is going on. Luckily she just had a dentist appointment, so I am not worried that their is anything wrong.

Crazy tax procrastination. I hate doing our taxes. Two weeks til the deadline and I still haven’t even purchased the software. Luckily our returns are fairly simple and can be completed in a day. Maybe I’ll start next week.

I’m all over the map tonight. Time for tea then bed. Night all!
