My Weekend in Numbers

4- number of people in our house who've had the stomach flu in the past 48 hours.

12- loads of laundry I've done in 48 hours. Apparently I have a "sanitize" option on my washer. I'm not exactly sure what it does, or how, but you better believe I've pushed that button with every load I've done.

6- sets of sheets that have been washed.

1- number of "beds" I've made on the bathroom floor so as to contain bodily fluids to tiled area.

50- (at least) the number of Clorox wipes I've used on doorknobs, sinks, toilets, tables, toys, etc.

2- number of pillows that fit safely in my washer.

3- number of people that are able to reach the toilet before throwing up...or at least make it off the carpet.

1- number of babies who give absolutely NO warning before throwing up all over anything( and anyone) within 10 feet.

6- number of hours it's lasted with each person

4- number of consecutive hours of sleep I've had in the last 3 days.

Other Notables:

I have a superpower. I do NOT get the stomach flu. I've not had the stomach flu since I was in elementary school, despite having it in my house every year since having children. (I am knocking on wood right now)

Calvin said last night "let's pray to Jesus so I won't be sick anymore."

Calvin says "spitting up" instead of "throwing up". This would be funny to you if you had seen the amount of nastiness that came out of him yesterday, definitely NOT spit up.

Although Tyler is in bed with a stomach ache, he has not thrown up yet. There is NOTHING worse than seeing a 6'5" man hunched over a toilet. I hope not to, but I have a feeling I'll be seeing that later today.
