Ode to Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to me,
I've been cleaning up throw-up.
It's now day three...
The washer hasn't stopped running,
the towels are spinning now.
The bedding lies in wait
I'll get through it somehow.
Everything I am seeing with my eyes--
I feel the need to sanitize.
(I haven't written a poem since 6th grade.
There's probably a reason for that.
I can't believe I'm actually going to post this...)


  1. Oh no! Who is sick? Or is it making the rounds through all of you? I am so sorry for you! And, so glad we haven't been any where near you guys! Feel better!


  2. Andrew on Monday, Dennis on Wednesday, Elijah yesterday, Christopher last night and Linnea today.
    It's very fast--8 hours or so, but still no fun. The only ones I've had to clean up for are the two little boys.
    I'm hoping Ruby, Nathaniel, Isaiah and I can avoid it! I've been washing EVERYTHING like crazy since Monday!
    I'm glad I haven't seen you either--I'd feel bad if you got something, but even worse if it could have come from our house.

  3. Hang in there! Yes, typically it is a fast moving illness, but with a family of nine it prolongs it before it is all out of the house!
