06-08-15 Stomach Bugs and Laundry Piles

Big E came down with a fever on Saturday night and had thrown up, then yesterday his fever came and went, but he seemed to be on the mend. The kids woke up at 5:30 this morning and within 20 minutes, Big E was throwing up... A lot. I spent most of the morning either holding a bowl under his mouth or doing a gazillion loads of laundry. Washing, drying, and not folding. (There are mountains of clean clothes on my bedroom floor right now. )

Finally by 1 pm he was starting to perk up and the fever was going down. By this evening he was back to normal, albeit a little crankier than normal. 

The other kids did well today. We watched a lot of tv and just laid low. Hopefully we are in the clear. :)

My supergirl!

We played a family game of Das Malefiz Spiel (I'm pretty sure I spelled that wrong, but I'm too tired to go back downstairs and look at the box!), a board game I picked up during my trip to Germany when I was seventeen. 

Sometimes you just have to fall asleep in the hallway... By a ladder. 

I'm looking forward to a quiet evening! Hopefully everyone cooperates!
