The Good, The Bad and The Downright Disgusting

Well, the good and the bad things were keeping me from blogging but in the end, it was the disgusting that has given me this time to sit down now.

The good stuff actually happened last weekend. I have a tiring but very satisfying weekend at
Aussie Clog. Its a weekend of clogging workshops during the day and socials at night. I left the house at 7am on Saturday morning and didn't get home until about 11pm. And then I was off again at about 7.30am on Sunday morning. Richard looked after the boys the entire time and supposedly, they never even asked where I was. I don't mind, I hardly thought of them the entire weekend.

The bad started on Monday morning with the start of a cold for Adrian. By night time, he had it bad and we were up all night because his nose was all stuffed up. That went on for a couple of nights which meant that there was a cranky toddler about during the day time. On Wednesday afternoon, Aaron started to say he had a tummy ache. That sounds a bit vague doesn't it? I thought he was just saying that because he didn't like his lunch and didn't eat it. Unfortunately, by Thursday evening, he had diarrhoea and was vomiting.

And finally, we get to the disgusting bit. Adrian started saying "I don't feel better." My mommy radar must be malfunctioning because once again, I didn't think much of it. I thought he was imitating Adrian and paid no attention. Well guess what? I have been vomited on three times this afternoon. The big, gushy type - IYKWIM. I was covered! After a whole day of washing and cleaning up while dealing with kids that don't feel well, I did the only sane thing and told them that they could watch TV. So, there they are, and here I am.  

But, its going to be dinner time they need to eat? I better go figure something out.

Still waiting for that clogging video.

Puking kids? Lucky you.

I had to look up IYKWIM. I have trouble keeping track of all the abbreviations IYKWIM.

Don't let them watch American political ads, or they'll vomit even worse.
