NOT FUN ISLAND!!!!

And here we are coming to you live from the sick, sick, sick house. We had our bout last December and now we are apparently experiencing our spring bout with illness. The last few Sundays we have missed church because of runny noses and then this last Sunday, only Josiah, Naomi, and myself went to church because the twins were in throw up mode. I haven't officially been counting the numerous loads of laundry I have done in the past few days, but I am guessing the load count is close to 20 or so!! The saying "double trouble" is definitely the case when it comes to twins getting sick at the same time. "Not fun island" as my Aunt Genny and her family would say (that side story on the bottom of this post). I won't digust you will ALL the gory details, but let's just say that both ends of both twins are giving me grief and plenty of laundry to wash.

Oh and incidentally...this post was interrupted by me going to say goodnight to the twins and I changed not one, but two explosive poopy diapers from the same twin (Daddy changed the other twin prior to my arrival). Needless to say, lots of hand washing and Lysol spraying around here these days.

Ugh....God please give me grace to deal with this, I hope it is over very soon! NOT FUN ISLAND!!

***SIDE STORY: My Aunt Genny and her family were out on the lake one time when her kiddos were little and they had this big inflatable circular deal that had the words "Fun Island" on it and they were really excited to use it as a family. It was supposed to be a nice thing to float on as they were relaxing in the lake. One of her girls was really afraid of it though and didn't want to go on it and informed her folks that it was "NOT fun island!"

Oh dear friend, I'm so sorry that you are going through this - again! No Fun Island! I prayed for you and I will continue. God will give you the strength you need. “Come to me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). I LOVE this verse. Love it!
Thank you for your stopping by my blog :) Oh yes ~ about the solo there was a solo the night there was karaoke (wink!) but that's not what I was thinking (hehe!) And the story of us, well I worked in an office in downtown Seattle and he was one of the construction guys eating lunch in the back of his truck ~ right out my window....(blush! still makes me smile to think about that)
Anywho ~ I hope tomorrow is a good day for you. Blessings, EMichelle
