"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Pukous Interruptous

I was in bed by midnight last night and was looking forward to 7+ hours of sleep until my alarm went off at 7:30 am. I drifted off to sleep and was enjoying such a good nights sleep. Sadly, that came to an abrupt end at about 4:30.

I woke up at 4:30 to Joey whispering "Mom, mom, I just puked...and it's all over the bedroom floor." Not only did I instantaneously wake up but I had nightmare visions of the clean up waiting for me. See, the boys' room is in dire need of a Spring cleaning bulldozering to get rid of the crap all over their floor. Thankfully and miraculously, he managed to puke in a mostly clean area of the floor. So, despite the gag inducing smells emanating from it, the pukous interruptous was fairly easy to clean up.

So, I'm operating on only 4 hours of sleep. I have all 3 kids home today. One of the three feels like shit. And, I'm still trying to teach MArty his school crap. Wheeeee fun!

I hate throw up. I have to hold my breath when around it or I'll be adding to the mess.

I hope that you get a much better sleep tonight.

Is it pathetic that I cannot wait to wake up to even the puke nights?

Sorry your kiddo is sick!
