You know, this is the song that never ends, it goes on and on my friend or something. Except replace the word song with sickness and there you have it.

The above is currently what my bedroom looks like. In case you missed it, I have been diagnosed with strep throat and also one super incredible sinus infection. Colt baby has had the nastiest of I don't even know what but it's bad. He's been sleeping in my bed with me every night as every twenty minutes or so we have to blow half his body weight from his poor raw nose. His eyes are sunken, he looks like a baseball bat made direct contact with his face and that bed above? We have not left it since Sunday, except for one doctor visit and one cough drop run.

Of course, when one child gets to sleep in mommy's bed, the other must also, or life as he knows it is over. No way was I sleeping with both kids in my bed, I may have a California King but I have it for a reason…and dat be space. So I dragged a mattress from upstairs and we have been sleeping over like the ultra modern Babysitters Club. 

Oh and. The doctor prescribed me antibiotics and also threw in some pain pills for the initial pain of razor blades being stuffed down my throat. I took the recommended dosage and it made me violently ill. Do you even know what it feels like to dry heave consistently over a toilet when you have strep throat? I kid you not, it lasted for hours. My throat was so raw and so sore and so razor-bladey I legit wanted to die. And it's so weird, because those pain pills? I used to take them for fun back in the day. Such a huge disappointment, when I really need them.  

You know how when one person in the house gets sick, everyone in the house gets sick? That's usually how it pans out for us too, except Gunner seemed to be dodging "the sickness" this time. Until last night, when he woke up in a startle around 2 am:

Gunner: mom! I can't see!

Me: Gunner, go back to bed. I'm right here.

Gunner: seriously I can't see!!

Me: Damnit Gunner you can't see because it's dark and the middle of the night and you better go back to bed right now or you will wake up your sick brother and I will paddle you!

I didn't hear from him again until a few hours later:

Gunner: (this time whimpering a little) mommy I really can't see…

Me: For the love. (Turning on the lamp by my bed)

And then…well and then I noticed that his eyes were swollen shut. I mean, he literally could not open them. They were crusted and red and just…stuck shut.

Talk about mother of the year I am. 

I felt horrible. I mean, I can only imagine, he wakes up in the middle of the night, can't see and here I am, his mother, the one person he is supposed to be able to trust with his life, wondering why he can't open his eyes and I yell at him to go back to bed or else.

I mean, now I can laugh about it, and I do, but I still feel horrible.

The other thing? Since having strep throat, I can't talk above a normal tone. Which means I can't yell. Which means my kids haven't heard a thing I've said all week. 

But the best thing. The best thing is Rob has been out of town all week. Since Sunday. He left the day everyone started going downhill. He comes home tonight, in which we are all for the most part on the mend. He wasn't here during the bazillion middle of the night meltdowns because one kid couldn't breath and one couldn't open his eyes (shame on me). He wasn't here when I was hunched over the toilet in more pain than child bearing and he wasn't here for all the snot and the throw up and the whines and the cries and the misery and the complete breakdown of this household. 

And he will mosey on in tonight and be all, "so, what did you do all week? Obviously you didn't clean the house."

And then he dies. 


ok so I totally lied. The very best part is obviously the 
5 pounds I lost due to the sickness. What better, more organic 
way to jumpstart that summer get bikini ready plan?

  5. And see? This is why I said you are seriously amazing for even taking the time to put earrings on. Me? I am just so glad to be able to put jeans and mascara on when I'm sick, the earrings never make it.

    But you look fab and take care of 2 sick kids on top of being sick. I'm taking notes.
    And the best of this post...

    And he will mosey on in tonight and be all, "so, what did you do all week? Obviously you didn't clean the house."

  14. Holy cow what happened to poor Gunner?! Hope you're all feeling better by now :).

  15. Oh wow, I hope you all feel better soon. That just sounds rough. I hate when we all get sick at the same time. It makes everything feel impossible.

  16. 1. This post made me laugh. I mean, I'm sincerely sorry that you're sick, but it made me laugh a little.
    2. I would be SO PISSED if pain pills made me puke. I would demand a refund immediately in addition to something that actually worked.
    3. The eyes glued shut thing happened to my son once. I totally freaked out. His eyes were literally glued shut with snot. I felt like mother of the year too.

    Things will be better soon :)

  20. Did you use your iPhone for that picture?? Of course the baby gets to sleep with Mommy!!! I hope you guys get to feeling better soon! I'm surprised you got pain killers and not just some Hycodan (Robitussin w/ Codeine). I love the bed and the kiddo's mattress on the floor!! The bed looks awesome for day drinking and shit talking! Invite me over!

  21. lol ok sorry I seriously hope you all are feeling better now.. that last line got me. Cuz when I have tough days here with the baby or especially the past 3 weeks me being sick, then getting her sick now she got me sick again.. My husband always comes home and starts with that shit.

  22. Hope things are on the up-and-up now! I think the *only* possible good thing that can come out of your husband being out of town all week, is that hopefully he will not get sick too (man-illness is the worst, at least in my house!). Feel better soon!

  23. "And then he dies."

    Hahahahaha!!!!!! Love it.

  24. If it makes you feel any better, my house looks like that even on my best health days.

    Also, would you keep your damn blog design the same for two months. I am challenging you right now to keep this one for two whole months. Ready, go...
