The Buckets

Emma stayed home from school with a stomach virus, she is getting worse. I had 3 more come down with it tonight. I am in Hell. Someone save me from the buckets of vomit I am expected to cheerfully empty and return. I really don't mind that so much, it's when they attempt to make it to the bathroom and miss the toilet. Fun, fun.

I moved the video monitor in the little girls' room so I would hear them call me. I am sure I won't get much sleep between their retching and hollering. Good thing they are cute b/c they sure smell bad.

I am so sorry. There has been a vicious stomach virus going around up here too. Makes me grateful we don't leave home much. All my friends that have had it say that it lasts 3 or 4 days instead of 24 hours. Hoping y'all don't have this particular one.

Thanks for the comments. You'll never know how much it means... especially coming from you! ;-)

I feel for you! This has to be one of the hardest things about having a large family. Wishing all of them a speedy recovery.
