welcome to spring break- the washer and shower are that way


Hermes was sick last week. He is still not "above the weather" as he likes to say.
Last night, Thor and Loki joined the ranks of the ill at the house.
I have spent most of the last 24 hours clening up vomit, and enticing liquids, oyster crackers, and applesauce into young'ens so that, if nothing else, they have something to come back up.
Thor being ill is a killer. Prior to getting his tonsils out, almsot two years ago now, he vomited regularly. He rarely does anymore, though. He has Excorsist like range, and it hurts him, and then he cries, and the most heartbreaking thing, he says he is so very sorry. It kills. It breaks your heart. It makes it much easier to be forgiving when he vomits all over you, and your clean bed, at 8:20 in the morning (yeah, that was my morning).
Loki seems to not have what his brothers do, he seems to be suffering from sinus drainage, probably cold or allergy related, judging by the weather, and other indicators, that I am not going to get into, but any one who has ever dealt with mass quantities of up-chuck could explain.

I am in a place where I don't know how I am feeling. I am tired and sore, but thqt could be from not sleeping well. I am a wee bit nausious, but have been dealing with vomit since tuesday night. So, I could either be getting sick, or I could just be sick of everyone else being sick.

I would like to leave you with a bit of wisdom, by way of Hermes - "Momma, why do people say 'the other day'? That makes no sense, there are more than two days, so it cannot really be the other day, now, can it?"

I'm so sorry the boys are sick, I hate vomit clean up duty. I'm so glad I'm not dealing with it. Nothing makes you appreciate your mom as much as having kids yourself. I know one of you threw up in my bed once but I can't remember which one.
