About Me

My Photo
My real life is a lot like THS (True Hollywood Story) except there's no fame, fortune, or drug addiction. Instead, I'm happily married, have two children, and a dog who's prone to barfing at 3 am. I love them all, but I also have to run away from them every day. I always run back, though.

The Barfs

Thursday night, I came home from class and didn't feel too good.  I went to bed thinking I was just really tired.

But, Friday morning, at about 4 am, I woke up and puked.  Then, a bit later, more puke.  Then the mud butt began, and I think that was almost worse -- barfing sucks, but having liquid evil shoot out your ass every 15 minutes is no good.

I was sick all day yesterday, but by early evening, I seemed to be on the mend.  Today, I feel better -- not 100% (dehydration has it's lingering affects) -- but, so far, I'm not spending the morning trying to guess which end to put on the toilet.  Which is good because today's a busy day: We have a b-day party to attend and then a wedding.

This is the 3rd time, in 2 years, that I've had a bug like this.  I swear, I've been sick more in the past few years since Norah was born than I ever was in the decade prior!

Kids are magnets for sickness. They'll pick something up at school or daycare, magnify it, and give it to you with a big smile on their faces. Gotta love parenting!

hope you are 100% soon! When my son was between 2 and 4 we got every bug imaginable...it was awful, but after that we've been really healthy...I think that your body has to adjust again to the germs while your child's immunity is building too.

Hope you feel better. We have to enjoy the first night in over a year without kids. You better not disappoint me. J/K!

I hope you feel better soon and that no one else in your family catches it! Makes me think it's time for my flu shot!

That sounds like food poisoning to me, sure thing with both ends and only lasting a day. Glad you are feeling better.
