Christmas is Coming

I have all sorts of Christmas festivities to post about. But after the puking fest we had last night, I decided it was just going to have to wait. We decorated sugar cookies yesterday and Alex ate waaaaaay too many. Last night around 11 he threw up all over his bed. It was the nastiest, stanky puke I've ever encountered. I was gagging the whole time I was cleaning it up. He threw up a bit more in the toilet then we put him back to bed with a puke bowl. At 4:30 a.m. he came in and woke me up because he'd thrown up again, on the opposite side of the bed from where the bowl was. So I got to change out the sheets all over again and scrub the carpet. I kicked Ella out of her bed so I could sleep in there with Alex so as to avoid any further sheet changes, and let me tell you, she has the most uncomfortable bed in the whole world. After just a short while laying there my whole body ached. Alex was up and wide awake at 7:30. We sent Ella off to school, put Alex in front of the TV, and I went back to bed. Alex threw up again while I was sleeping, but Anton took care of that one. I didn't even manage to shower and get out of my pajamas all day. So needless to say, after all that I'm not in the mood to post all about fun Christmas stuff. You're just going to have to wait.

I have such a weak stomach that it is almost beyond hope if the kids don't make it to the bathroom when their sick.
