Bloggy Updates and Puke

Just a quick post for you today. The hubs and I were awakened by the sound of little children heaving and spewing puke all over their beds last night at 2am. And get this - both kids started puking at the exact same time! Like within a few minutes of each other.

That's one hell of a stomach bug.

Anyway, the kiddies never really stopped puking...until about 10am this morning. Don't you love young kids who puke? They don't care where they puke - they just sort of turn their head to the side and let it go. Doesn't matter if they're in their bed, on the couch, or walking down the hall to tell you their puking (that one was an awesome clean up, by the way - a trail of puke down the hall...). So, the hubs and I have been awake since 2am. We're tired. We're taking care of sick kids. And the whole house smells like barf. The husband was making me giggle at 4am calling our house a big "barf-o-rama!"

Yummy!

You find out how good your washing machine actually is when you try to wash puke out of a blanket. Moms, you know what I'm talking about, don't ya? I just bought a brand new, high efficiency washer (that has the middle agitator thingy missing...it uses its amazing "wave action" instead to get clothes clean. Well, evidently, the fancy wave action doesn't work so well on puke. Or maybe it's just chunky puke it doesn't like?

Hym. Y'all ready to eat now?

Back to what I was going to tell ya...

I've made a few updates to The Housewife Diaries! First is Blogger.com has introduced a fun new gadget. If you look to the left sidebar, you'll see a "Search the Diaries" option. That means you can search all of my blog posts with whatever key word you choose. It's pretty spiffy.

I also updated my Ipod music list. Any songs you don't recognize? Anything you hate? Dish it and tell me what you think.

Ok, that's it! I'm off to wash some more blankets and go to bed early. I've got a few fun blogs lined up for the next few weeks so stay tuned!

Holy crap! That sounds like the stomach bug from hell. And yeah, what is up with kids just turning their heads and puking wherever they happen to be?! Good luck, get some rest xoxo

Monica said...

How awful! Hope they're feeling better soon and that you get some much needed rest tonight.

Lol, I know it's not funny, but I understand the pain of barf chunks! Nothing like scraping them off of wet laundry or picking them out of the wash basin! Ewww.
I'm snagging your hubby's puke phrase "barf-o-rama"
Nice.

I did that walking-down-the-hallway-puking thing when I was a kid. I could not figure out why my mom was so mad at me. I mean, I was the one sick after all.

Wierd!!!! riley puked in his bed at 2 am too!!!! originally he was awakened by his coughing brother, so Brandon gave him a bottle to go back to sleep with and about 20 minutes later........blahhhh, curdled milk chunks all over the bed. I have learned to NOT wash those nasty blankets on warm, cuz I end up with cottage cheese like stuff in my washer.....EEEWWWW. So it's cold water washing from now on. Yup, life cant get much better than the smell of throw up at 2 am, oh and changing the sheets on the bunk bed :)

I hope everyone gets better quick. Oh, how was school registration???

As a mom I think that's one of the worse things in the world to clean up..yuck!!

I feel your pain. We did the puke thing (at 2:30am!) last Saturday with Wyatt. He was fine by 8:30am, but it was a long morning just the same.

Oh, and those chunks? I had Danny take the sheet and blanket outside and hose them off before putting them in the washing machine. Seriously.

OK, true story. A few years ago a friend got so drunk she threw up ALL OVER my bathroom. It was so disgusting I considered just closing the door and never using it again. For real. It was that gross.
Hope everyone feels better...

Tasha, I got laid off in November and I completely understand how you can get bored and find that drinking is somewhat of an "out". I've spelled it all out in my blog too. It has too, made me fat and I'm right there with you on losing 20 pounds. Somehow, I wish I would get that stomach bug and get rid of some poundage that way. Oh, wait, do I? LOL.

So here's a cheer (of iced tea for me) to us for working toward our goal.

Katie said...

Oh yuck!! Puke is the absolute worst!! Why is it that kids always do it in the middle of the night too? When it seems to smell even worse to us parents who were in a dead sleep. NASTY!! Hope you got it all cleaned up.

Cheers to losing 20lbs (or more like 50 for me)!!

Once cut my 2-year old out of his shirt (a lovely GAP one, no less) because it was covered in such a thick layer of spew I couldn't bear to pull it over his head, poor thing...
