Another Sick One

The most perfect thing to drink when sick (in our little house, that is) is orangina...but only the orangina in the tiny little bottles. Why not the big bottles? I have no clue...but I am sure it has something to do with the cute factor of the small bottles.

But we ran out and I had absolutely no desire to
  • a: run to the store
  • b: wait for that guy that I like so much to stop at the store on his way home.

Desperate, I made homemade orangina with stuff we always have around....oj and pellegrino.

It's easy. Fill a glass 3/4 of the way with orange juice and then top it off with some sparkly water...just enough to give it a little fizz.

Mix it up and throw in 2 straws...there's something about double straws that help you feel better.

Trust me on this...it's a proven fact.


The youngest shrub has had a few really rough days...and even rougher nights. High fevers, coughy, achy, pukey...all add up to one miserable kiddo.

After a night of not being able to get his temp under 104 (scary) we got into the DR first thing this morning.

H1N1. Check.
Ear infection. Check.
Strep throat. Check.
Bronchitis. Check.
Pink eye. Check.

He is so sick.


I am thankful for modern medicine...he's on a bucket load of stuff and I can't wait for him to feel a little better.

In the meantime, my house is a wreck. First I was down for a week and now I am on hovering mom patrol, which means nothing is getting done.

This is only from the boys hamper in the bathroom...not sure if I will ever catch up.

Oh well.

(Is there a laundry fairy? If so, could you send her to my house?)

Tonight...we sleep?





  1. Holy cow girl! Ya'll are dropping like flies out there in CA!!
    Never tried Orangina, gotta give that a try. I bet the boys will love it.
    Sweetie, if I find that laudry fairy, I promise to send her to you---in the meantime, I'm working my way through 4 loads tonight!
    I hope the baby boy is feeling better soon and that everyone else stays well!

  2. Oh, poor Brian, and poor mommy!! I'm so sorry! Hope he gets better soon!!!

  3. Not good when mommy & son are sick. You need to open the windows and doors and let all the germs escape...NOW! I'll call you tomorrow :-) Love you, Mom
