Last night was a major landmark in our lives - the boys' first night in their new room, with Bobby in the top bunk and Theo in Bobby's toddler bed tucked underneath. I worked all day to set up their room and make my new room slightly less chaotic. And it all went great...except that Theo threw up all over everything.
And I'm vaguely nauseated. So, I guess I had one good week and now we're back to - you guessed it - another stomach bug. This thing never fucking ends. And I have to sing all weekend and take The Boyfriend out for his birthday. Couldn't have come at a worse time!
Not knowing what else to do, I just cleaned him up and put the boys to bed, keeping an eye on them with the baby monitor. And they did just fine. Theo slept all night in his new big boy bed, as did Bobby. I barely slept as my attention was on the monitor all night. They did well in the morning, too.
Until Theo threw up all over everything again. And I cleaned it all up again. All I can say is my choice of hardwood floors over carpet was wise.
Other than wallpapering next week, ordering a new bed and mattress, and the massive task of cleaning out my former storage closet and switching things around, then hanging some pictures, and selling some furniture, the main work is done. I cannot wait until everything is organized and clean. But that's a ways away yet. And I have to kick some ass doing my taxes all week next week.
But other than feeling nauseated and cleaning foul vomit off furniture and toys and floors, everything's pretty good at the moment. Very grateful for all the things the last five years have brought me!
