Another year, another load of laundry

In the past 3 days, I have washed every piece of linen and every towel we own at least twice. ┬áConsidering our washing machine is smaller than most dishwashers, sits in our kitchen and takes an hour and a half per load (that doesn’t include drying time, mind you), I’m a bit laundry-ed out.

On New Years Eve, Lena woke herself up by puking all over the bed. We just bought a new mattress and hadn’t yet put the mattress pad on it. Figures, right? We got everything cleaned up and decided to lay down with her and keep an eye on her. She was being super sweet and cuddled up to Jason. After about an hour, she rolled over to cuddle with me and puked all over my chest and into my hair. Yay! This scenario repeated itself quite a few times throughout the night and by morning, all three of us were exhausted.

Luckily, the puking subsided but it’s replacement was equally as disgusting. At 5am, Jason and I woke up to the most horrific smell I’ve ever experienced. Lo and behold, our sweet little girl had exploded out her diaper all over our bed, narrowly missing getting it on us as well. Happy New Year!

This was the gift that kept on giving and by that afternoon, Jason had joined in on the fun and was moaning and groaning about the horrible stomach pains he had. I managed to clean the house while he and Lena rested but at 7pm, it was my turn. I ended up losing everything I had eaten that day just in time for my cousin Tor to come home with one of his friends. I’m sure she was really impressed by my swamp monster impression.

We’re all feeling back to normal thankfully but I do not care to experience that again any time soon. I need to go put away about 5 loads of laundry now that I have some energy again. If we had made a new years resolution to all lose weight, we’d be doing awesome. 2013 is off to a great start!
