The laundry it never ends. Yep, everything in the above photo is dirty laundry. I figure there is at least 15 loads there. While I love my front loading machines, they are tiny and don't hold as much as my old machines did.
12:45pm - I had load 1 in the dryer and load 2 in the washing machine. It's never going to end.
2:01 pm - I had load number 2 in the dryer, load number 3 in the washing machine & dishwasher is currently doing load number 1. One kid is napping (Mack), and the other is sick but not acting it...! (Sean)
5:13 pm - I was stuck with a napping Sean on me for about 2.5 hours so load number 2 needs to be re-heated in the dryer, and load 3 is waiting to go into the dryer. I feel like I'll be doing laundry into 2010...!
6:12 pm - I was making some progress. Load 3 in the dryer and load 4 in the washing machine. Though, no folding has been done yet.
I am a procrastinator when it comes to folding the laundry. I resolved to fix this in 2010.
Will you be calling it two thousand and ten or twenty-ten? I haven't figured out what I will be calling it yet, but twenty-ten sounds a lot easier to say.
Sean woke up at 5 am this morning throwing up. He was sick all morning. Tried giving him water & crackers mid-morning, he couldn't hold it down for 5 minutes. He said by lunch he was feeling better, so after giving him Pedialyte every 3o minutes for a while and he kept that down, I gave him some toast and plain whole wheat spaghetti with nothing on it, because that is what I was eating, and he wanted some too. He did keep it down. So far, so good, he was better the rest of the day. I really hope that Mack doesn't catch whatever it was.
Mid-afternoon I started to feel horrible. Cold. Nauseas. I couldn't eat dinner. I couldn't eat anything the rest of the evening. Jamie and I just hung out this evening at home, and I was on the couch totally out of it. I couldn't even knit a stitch. That's how ill I felt. I really hope this passes as I need to go to work tomorrow since I didn't go in today. I didn't go in at all last week because of our guests at our house, so I need to get in tomorrow. My mom has agreed that if Sean doesn't become sick again, she'll watch the two of them tomorrow at our house for a few hours. At least I'll be able to get some work done then.
I really couldn't do any more laundry or much of anything tonight. I couldn't even really focus on the episodes of Gene Simmons: Family Jewels that we did watch tonight. I think I will hit the pillow early tonight and pray I am no longer ill tomorrow. It was just one of those days. It sucks being sick and having a sick child at home as well. I really hope there isn't something going around.
