At its finest


It would appear the worst has past. There has been no more regurgitation, and the boys about started a fist fight over a blanket.

See? Almost back to normal.

Jacob seems to have bounced right back without a hitch.

I base this on the fact that he asked for a sucker for breakfast.

Joseph still seems to be a little slow and not feeling too great. He'll lie down wherever he is standing and curl up in a ball for a few minutes, then stand up and continue on his way.

But since he was wondering around the house naked a few minutes ago begging for a t-shirt, I feel confident he is on the road to a speedy recovery.

And now, I am off to do this, before the garbage truck comes.


And bottle these, before I have 130 pounds of moldy fruit in my kitchen.



And as a token of my appreciation for all of you, I want you to have this.


See? Now don't you just feel so much better about yourself?

I always take pictures of my house at its very... uh, finest.

Just for you.

You're welcome.

You amaze me!

Thanks for the gift.
It gave me a lift.

Your gift to us was encouraging to me, as my house is spotless right now. Bwhahaha. Wishful thinking. So, did you forget about bringing your puking boys to me?? That's alright. Maybe they aren't really up for the play time with us. Cause I knwo I am not up for throw up. Ever.

Good idea to be able to share your unconditional love via this post in 10 years. LOVE IT.

oh my! (regarding your kitchen) ;)
are you going to can the peaches?

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

I know right? I think I can safely boast that that was the worst my kitchen has ever been.

And yes, I am going to can all the peaches!

MommyJ said...

holy peaches, woman! Hope you have fun with that.

We just finished the endless barfing at our house Ugh! SO much barf! In beds, in hair, inside a tent while we were camping... ugh. I'm glad it's all over. Wait, karma? Don't read that part, okay?

Oddly enough, when my kids were all sick, my kitchen looked exactly like yours!

Valerie said...

Wow! That's a LOT of peaches. I hope you find time to take care of them with all the other fun in your life. :)

Braden said...

Oh, I miss peaches being canned in teh fall!!!! Glad everyone is feeling better.

iamwoman said...

I feel sorry for you. Not about your sick babes..but about those peaches.

I have had my fill canning them for sure.

And would you believe that my stupid peach jam didn't gell?

All 24 bottles of them.

Anyone want peach syrup?

LOVE you kitchen, btw. Mine looks exactly like it today, minus the shoes on the counter;)

Lisa said...

Let the peaches go moldy~that would be one more thing you could do for those of us who didn't even bother buying the boxes from the orchard. I'm just content to buy Del Monte's poor excuse for a canned fruit...and feel guilty about it.

Jenifer said...

Oh your kitchen looks SOOOO much better than mine! You are a brave sole to post a picture of it.

Shultzybabe said...

Glad the boys are holding it in now. Hope you get some rest too!

Kazzy said...

Dontcha love it when they sleep so hard that their eyes are half-open and their eyeballs are rolled back into their heads?

Spoken (and shown) like a true awesome mother.

I DO feel better, thanks! (written as I wait for the laundry to finish so it can go in the dryer so that I will have clean unmentionables tomorrow...)

missy said...

I wish I lived near you I'd do your dishes for you! Hope everyone is feeling better soon!

The Kooky Queen--Rachel said...

Glad the kiddies are getting better! And what a load of work you have! I'd come over and help you in a second so you could show me how to can!

Jocelyn Christensen said...

That is a fine looking kitchen...but I think mine was an even bigger mess yesterday and no one was sick...time to get ready for Playgoup...come on over ladies and look at my filthy house!

One Cluttered Brain said...

Holy moly! Really? Those are a TON of peaches. And the kitchen sink? We have ALL been there before. Never you fear my dear!
love ya Serene!

Charlotte said...

I love you and your kitchen sink. I should send you a picture of my computer desk as a reciprocation gift.

Teachinfourth said...

Suddenly, my life seems a whole lot simpler...

Papa K said...

You mow? My wife wouldn't come within 50 feet of the mower!!

I'm hedging my bets on having a boy the next time around so I can plan on not having to mow the yard any more in about 10 years!

Love your stuff... came here from Blok Thoughts

Two children are always do fight with each other. Mother's have so many work at home. Moldy fruit in your kitchen looks so tasty. Your kitchen looks so clumsy.
