{Sunday Photographs - 39}

The last two days have pretty much been spent like the pictures above. Laying around the house when you're not in the bathroom.

I have had my fill of cleaning puke covered people, places and things for a while...hopefully a long while.

Getting Jonas to remain on the oilcloth mat I laid out on the carpet was effective 4 out of the 9 times he vomited so I'd call that a success. I spent a lot of time dreaming of a house covered with oilcloth carpet.

Mailee only complained once by saying "Mom all I've done all day is puke...lay down...puke lay down...I'm over today!". I'd be over it too if I was puking every 20 minutes!

I did manage to get the Christmas tree up and decorated before I started feeling sick late last night so this weekend wasn't totally a fail.

Looking at a beautiful Christmas tree while laying on a couch sick always makes you feel a little better.

Here's to tomorrow being a puke free and back to school day!Had to mention the two things that, along with the Christmas tree sparkle, brought a little happiness to this house.

1.Ginger Ale - an upset stomach's best friend. I felt like I needed to be serving a small bag of pretzels or peanuts along with their beverage and wearing a flight attendant's outfit.

2.Awesome friends. Shout out to Mese Ugapo who saw we were a house of Puke and brought some of our favorite juice to us. What kindness!

Being sick is zero fun :( but I definitely drink ginger ale when my stomach is upside down too.
