It Never Rains but it Pours

It's been a crazy week at our house. First Franny got some kind of evil stomach bug and spent 24 hours doing her Exorcist impression, then she got a nasty cold, and then Drew got the stomach thing. Between that and the dog hurting her ear and bleeding all over Drew's bed, and the creepy Amityville Horror honey dripping out of the ceiling (yes, the bees are gone, but we still have a large portion of their winter larder), plus the usual assortment of toileting accidents and near misses, I'm about ready to burn the house down and start over. General cleaning and sterilizing is not going to cut it this time.

To top it off, we're behind on all our chores, so we've spent several days eating take-out and scrounging for the least dirty clothes to wear. And it's been raining for days now, which means the kids can't go outside to play, even when they've felt like getting up off the couch. Oh, and I pulled a muscle in my back yesterday. It's ok though, it only hurts when I move, or breathe, or lie there doing nothing at all. . . ..

Possibly there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Franny's cough seems better today, and surely Drew will stop throwing up soon. We might even be able to leave the house this weekend! Or, I could catch the stomach thing and end up in the hospital getting rehydrated on an iv drip. Actually, that's not sounding so bad right now - at least I'd get some rest.
