M-M-M-O-R-M-O-R-N-I-N-G

Well, I must be feeling better (despite the secondary sinus infection) because I have been a-cleanin' and a-scrubbin' all morning.

Kill the germs! Kill the germs!

The floors have been mopped and vacuumed. Everything has been scrubbed with a bleach cleaner. And the bathroom, the bathroom, is now gleaming.

Germs be gone!

Whilst I was sick, I became highly addicted to Perez Hilton and William Sledd. I know... but every girl needs snark and gay men's fashion advice sometimes.

(Obviously, I'm trying really hard not to bitch and complain... 'cause there's only so many ways I can say "the kids are sick," "they are driving me crazy" and "someone please remind me why I intentionally did this to myself.")

Sometimes when we're sick here I get to that point too. One minute I'm on the couch moaning. Then suddenly, in my head I say "oh, good grief. This is ridiculous! I've got to rid this house of these bad germs." And off I scrub...

I always end up scrubbing at the end of an illness! Especially the stomach bugs: those get extra scrubbing.

I'm glad you are at least feeling well enough to scrub. Only about 24 more hours as a single parent, right?

I love, love, love a clean house. I just don't like all the work to get one :-)

Bleach is a mom's best friend, especially after an illness.

Nothing like a clean house, you must be feeling better already! Not long to go before hubby is back.....you deserve a holiday after this!

angela said...

Yep, this momma goes nutzo cleaning after germs invade too! I do hope this illness is over for you all.
Glad you well enough to do something.

You did this to yourself because it's all you ever wanted? You adore the smiling faces of your angels? You're nuts? love punishment? What else were you gonna do? I dunno...;-)

Kick some virus ass! I'm glad you feel better, and that Aaron is finally coming home. Too bad he wasn't around to help when everyone was really sick, but that's the way it always seems to happen...

I hope y'all feel better soon.

Welcome back! I also vanquish the germs.

Unfortunately, it wasn't Hawaii for us. Missouri, actually - the anti-Hawaii. Thanks for giving a gal a dream though :-)

You are scrubbing? Oy! Come on over to my house and scrub, I'll watch the boys while you clean. Heck, I would even give you an hour to yourself after you were done for a nap. Are you tempted at all?

How industrious. I'd fake being sick for a few more days just to evade the scrubbing and cleaning!

And as far as Perez - I frequently succumb to the charms of fourfour for exactly the same reasons. All the snark of Perez, plus Winston - the cutest cat in the world....
