Up to my Eyeballs in Bodily Fluids

Ugh. I am not down with the sickness. That's all that's been in my house since Monday morning. Here's a brief description of my week.

On Monday The Big One crawls out of his bed and says "Mom, I can't open my eye very much." All it took was one look to confirm pink eye. But since we haven't had pin k eye in 5 years we had no meds. So off I go with 3 boys to the pediatrician. All for him to walk in and say "Yup-pink. I'll give you some drops." Thanks for making me spend $25 dollars for your whole 2 minutes of time Doc.

Tuesday they all miss school. Motormouth and CCP were caught rubbing their eyes so I kept them home and started drops on them as well.

Wednesday the coughing and the runny noses started. For everyone. I have never seen anything like the ooze coming out of CCP's nose. Makes me gag. Motormouth was feeling pretty bad come dinner time so rather than eat he goes to bed.

That brings us to this morning. First motormouth has a major coughing fit in the bathroom and proceeds to throw up all over the floor. Have I mentioned I don't handle vomit well? If not, I don't. It makes me want to vomit. What a horrible cycle. So we get him and the bathroom all cleaned up and get back to the morning routine. As I'm in the kitchen CCP has a major coughing fit. Can you guess where I'm going with this? Yup. He vomited all over the kitchen floor. So there's a whole nother clean up. They have both been acting fine ever since, so I'm chalking it up to coughing to hard. A girl can wish right?

Oh, and did i mention that I'm totally PMS'ing through all of this? Yeah. NOT fun. I think we're past Calgon here. I need a bottle of tequila and a nice soft bed to get past this week.
