The sickness

There is a sickness running through my house. On Tuesday C had a fever although Raoul decided he didn't have to tell me about it. On Wednesday, he went to preschool as usual. Normally, after preschool, he would come home with me. But, I had a meeting in the office so I sent him to daycare. I work about 30 minutes away from daycare, 45 in traffic. I dropped Tweedle C off at 12:20 and got to work at 1:07. At 1:17, his baby sitter called me to tell me he had thrown up all over the house. She knew I had a meeting and was okay with him staying but wanted him picked up as soon as it was done. I picked him up at 3:30 and he was very snuggley all night.

Last weekend, Tweedle P started to get a terrible cough and a really stuffy nose. She would lay in bed at night hacking and coughing. It was one of those barky croupey coughs. Not long after the vomiting, Tweedle C started coughing and getting really hoarse. By Friday, the kid could hardly talk. Delsym and Sudafed have been flowing like water around this place.

Friday I was buying cat litter. In an effort to save money, I switched from clumping litter to regular clay litter and bought the huge 50 lb bag. I hoisted it into the cart, got it into and out of the car, and carried it into the basement. All was well until I tried to fill the litter pan. I totally killed my back. I can hardly bend over. It hurts if my bladder gets to full and when I sit down I have to do the nine months pregnant fall back onto the couch because I can't bend over sit. It sucks. Yesterday, I started to get that scratchy cough and now I have the constant need to cough. Today, I started to feel sick to my stomach. I feel like I have to throw up. It sucks.

I H-A-T-E the first week of school. I hate all the little germs they bring home and get everyone sick. I HATE IT!

PS If this is hard to read or there are spelling errors I am sorry. I am not spell checking or editing this because I feel sick and I am going to lay down.

Thanks for your well wishes. I have a feeling my upset stomach was due to 1 too many mojitos and not enough food. I am doing much better. Although, I am still sitting like a pregnant lady thanks to the damn cat.

BHJ, Welcome! I have to say, your blog never fails to leave thinking what the fuck. Nice job!
