I Should Have Known Better

Murphy does not take vacations.

I know this for a fact, because I spent the entire day rolling around and moaning from my own case of the stomach flu while five of my children vomited unceasingly around me. All over the freshly cleaned carpets, when they could not make it to the bathroom in time.

Just as I was consoling myself with the fact that, at least, the carnage was confined to the upstairs and that the downstairs still looked fine, the dog, too, came down with it and threw up in the dining room. I didn't know dogs could even GET the flu.

Like I said yesterday, Murphy's Law is generally as reliable than the Law of Gravity. Silly me for thinking there could be an exception.

I'm so sorry you guys are all ill! We send our thoughts for calm stomachs and effective stain-removal!

I hate to say I saw that train wreck coming.. I have experience with that one. My kids usually split it up. You could call the carpet guy and say he missed a spot. (LOL) Hope you are all feeling better soon. Love from Turkan Central

Oh my goodness, does that mean that you all got sick after the carpet cleaning? Or did you get it in before hand??
That is why I have to have my own cleaner, but we just really have mostly hardwood floors now. That helps a lot.

I've been thinking about you this week -- hope you're all feeling better!!
