Welcome to the Jungle

Welcome to the Jungle, aka Barfageddon 2012 (aka Casa de BlahBlah for almost an entire week last week). Yup. I hesitate to even write it, because I think you all must think a) DANG, does she ever clean her house, or does she just recycle sick germs? b) Her kids are ALWAYS sick, or c) some variation of both of those.

I won't go into the graphic details, but suffice it to say I now realize I hadn't truly parented until I was running back and forth between numerous sick kids, and had to stop to barf myself. Add to that fun about 1,987 loads of laundry (for each time someone got sick on their bed, towel, clothing, the cat, whatever), and you have a shitastic Thanksgiving holiday week.

Because NO ONE was in a mood to eat anything (besides soda crackers and flat ginger ale) on Turkey Day, we celebrated yesterday. It's a good thing I had these photos from a week or two ago to post, because had I felt like taking any photos last week, you would have seem the same big grey sweat pants and sweatshirt for several days in a row. Glamorous.

Don't hate the playa.

I'm not even going to say "thankfully everyone is over it," because anytime I say that, the Sick Gods strike again, and it seems to be with something worse than the time before. At this rate, we're all going to end up with malaria. Instead, let's just watch my pretend girlfriend Pink cover a little G-n-R. It's just what the doctor ordered.

Stop over and see everyone at Visible Monday and Monday Mingle!

Don't feel bad we were all sick all weekend long. I was bedridden for most of Friday and Saturday and my girl (who I thought was on the mend) seems to having a relapse. Makes me nuts. Now I can pretty much guarantee at Christmas well have another round, every. Single. Year. It happens...

Poor baby ! I mean you, of course, but sympathy to the little ones as well. You looked amazing earlier, of course. Hope all is well, and that the rest of the holidays go easier on you!

Smokin hot outfit... love the tee, and you look gorgeous as ever. SO Sorry about this viral sickness that will not leave your household alone! I guess those chillens are multipliers for germs. I will pray for you to have some R&R!!!!!
