Things that try my patience...

1. Packing for a 10-hour road trip and THEN learning that a certain little girl has diarrhea.

2. Learning 3 hours later (after she's fallen asleep,) not only does she have diarrhea, but she's throwing up and continues to do so through the night. (Yes, we did just do this 4 days ago minus the runs.)

3. Bathing said girl the next morning because she reeks of d+ and v+, getting her clean, putting her on my bed and then realizing 2 minutes later that her POS diaper leaked and I now have to include my bed linens to 5 thousand loads of laundry that need to be done.

4. Listening to a gurgling stomach and then hearing squirting sounds from Maren's direction.

I could go on, but I'll stop here. Seriously, sometimes I wonder what I would have done if procreation wasn't a commandment. Too harsh? Be me for the last 12 hours.

Yikes! No fun!!! :( I hope she starts to feel better soon. The sound of gurgling stomachs will fill my dreams tonight.

There's nasty stomach bug hitting the ERs now - hope she'll feel better soon.

Ooh, I'm SOOO sorry! I totally feel you--I normally do about 20-30 loads of laundry a week, and we just had stomach flu in December, meaning not only did I have extra laundry, but I hadn't done any of the normal amount. We were down to wearing towels & swimsuits...
