Yet another washing machine bites the dust.
On the plus side, I have 5 kids to help me at the laundromat while I hunt for the most indestructible washing machine known to man. (Any input? Because so far I've killed off Kenmores, Maytags and Whirlpools.)
On the negative side, I have 5 kids' worth of dirty laundry.
So far, November is absolutely sucky. For the past month, I have fluctuated between fighting flu bugs and just feeling like crap in general. Now, I have been sick, really sick, in bed or on the couch since Wednesday. Went to the doctor on Friday to learn that, on the plus side, I do not have mono. Hooray. On the negative side, I have tonsillitis, sinusitis, and a left ear infection.
As of this morning, I have two children (Hatfield and Miles), sick in bed with the stomach flu.
Atticus is wrapped in the blanket on our other couch, complaining of a headache and looking paler by the second.
And Paloma and Keenan are filming the latest segment of our 5FC telenova, The Dueling Divas.
Seriously, I know that life could hand us far worse, and by comparison, this is just a season and we'll get through it. I just wish we could get through it faster. And healthier.
