Sickness and cleanliness...

First of all, thanks to everyone who made such lovely comments on my post yesterday. Your kind words definitely helped to cheer me up! I appreciate the support. 

Today I am in the process of completely scrubbing down the house. All three of my kids are sick with fevers, coughs, runny noses. They are all huddled together on the couch watching movies. One is finally starting to feel better (thanks, antibiotics!), one is feeling bad off and on, and the other, my youngest, is utterly miserable with a high fever. I am off to the store to pick up anything that he thinks he might like (apple juice and ice cream, although I'll probably go with popsicles). 

But the awesome thing is that while I'm at the store, I will still be vacuuming. How, you ask? Because my parents gave me a Roomba for my birthday! Is it so sad that it is one of my favorite presents ever?! While I have been cleaning out closets, doing laundry, giving snuggles to my sickies, the Roomba has been (happily?) motoring around all of the rooms upstairs. It is ridiculous how much I love it. I'm thinking of giving it a name! Now, if they'd only make one that could clean bathrooms, I would be in heaven!

Hopefully, all of the cleaning and the liquids and medicines will help everyone get on the mend. We are on spring break this week, and I definitely want us to be able to do some fun things! 

Off to wage more war against germs and then run out to the store. We are all thinking healthy thoughts here!


  1. I feel for you. It's not fun to have a household of sick children. It is the simple things that make us happy and I would be happy with a Roomba.

  2. Yikes! So sorry you have the germ thing going at your house! Spring and fresh air and warm weather can't come soon enough! You are the first person I have ever known of that actually had a roomba! Hearing you talk, I want one! And I want one of those bathroom ones too! Is there one that cleans the kitchen!

  3. I wish you all a speedy recovery. The bugs have been tough this yera - many and frequent! It's enough to drive a mother to ROOMBA!

  4. Can I get a ROOMBA that picks up first? Good luck fighting the bugs!
