In and Out


February 4, 2008 by Marj Hatzell


  • Date this afternoon with my husband at the car show
  • Parent meeting at Bugaboo’s school to discuss Sensory strategies and OT issues
  • Bugaboo’s therapy
  • Bugaboo going to school
  • Bug Boy going to school
  • Polite Boy, Middle Child and Little Miss coming over after school
  • getting done anything useful around the house, since the kids are home
  • Happy Mommy


  • Vacuuming vomit with the shop vac
  • steaming the same carpet
  • stripping everything off of Bugaboo’s bed (everything, even the mattress protector and pillow protectors) to sanitize
  • wiping Bugaboo’s walls (’cause he puked down the wall behind the bed!)
  • pulling out bed and repeating the first two steps
  • scrubbing the car and seat where Bugaboo vomited
  • cleaning aftermath of last night’s poo in the bathroom episode (again)
  • Going to the doc with both boys (one puking, one with a perforated ear drum) to see what’s up
  • Tired Mommy

If I knew what I was going to be doing today, I woulda gone to bed early and said the heck with the Superbowl.  Sigh.  The good news?  I’m in a fabulous mood despite my current circumstances, the husband still went to the car show (with the brother)so he’s outta my hair and I don’t have to cook dinner.  The kids are going to bed early, Mommy is taking a very hot bath and then Mommy is going to sleep a loooooooong time.  Because I said so.

    You always have the best attitude about these kinds of things. It’s a fabulous skill to have!
