flu interruptions

so much for filling up the island with pots and pans this weekend. that was supposed to happen sunday. but instead, we got home from church and chris and i immediately started having that awesome puke feeling. we were sick all evening. poor chris was sick all night too.
yuck
yesterday we were so tired and lethargic we could barely get off the couch.
seriously, did somebody sneak into our house and beat us up when we weren't looking?

thankfully none of the kids got sick but that made it hard for the 2 of us to keep up with them.

yesterday morning izzy tried to "help" and got reed some breakfast...which consisted of half a lot of bread that had dairy in it. so he's all snotty and coughing and covered in a rash. poor baby.

i really really want to start reorganizing my kitchen today but i have been busy doing laundry and sanitizing my whole house. i'm a little bit of a germ freak when it comes to stomach viruses.
everything has been sprayed with vinegar and peroxide and i have washed every piece of fabric that either of us touched.

i also replaced our toothbrushes and opened all the windows.
i think we're safe now :)
i'm so bad in fact, that if i hear of someone i know having the stomach flu i immediately start feeling sick.
i found out that there is actually a name for this fear of puking: Emetophobia. yeah. pretty weird huh?

so maybe the island will have to wait till tomorrow. its almost noon and i'm SO tired.
apparently having the stomach flu and not eating anything or drinking much takes a toll on the boob milk. poor little hank has been nursing for all he's worth and was still up 2 nights in a row. good thing i have a small stash of milk in the freezer. he will get a bottle before his nap and before bed tonight to catch him up.
