being sick sucks. it is just miserable when you feel physically awful. we've all been there. you should know that i am particularly bad at at.
but nothing is as bad as when your whole family gets sick.
shannon: achy, vomiting, nausea
cade: vomiting, extremely sleepy
greg: achy, diarrhea, exremely sleepy, unable to deal with the above.
i mean it is one thing to clean up your son's liquid feces when you are well and you have all your faculties to fight off the gag reflex. but it is another thing altogether when you are already feeling like you might toss your cookies. there has been vomit and poop everywhere around here since saturday afternoon.
i could go on and on, but will spare you any more disgusting details. suffice to say that we haven't been feeling well here at the milinovich house. i swear that this has nothing to do with the sickening display the steelers defense put on sunday night, or the fact that the boston dread sox are going to the world series. okay, maybe it has a little to do with it.
i am feeling a little better this morning, and hopefully we'll all be coming around soon. but not because i had anything to do with it. i mostly went and buried myself under the covers. shannon pretty much held the household together: doing laundry, scrubbing floors, giving baths, throwing up, making soup, etc. while i laid in bed. i'm exagerating here, but only a tiny bit. without her ability to see past her own sickness, this house would be a shambles, with children wallowing around in their own..you know. there would be bugs and toxic waste and vultures circling overhead, and i would be under the covers. sleeping it off.
being sick sucks. but thank God for women who are able to get past it and help the rest of us babies.
