what goes around....

comes around???


first zach got sick. then jim. then on to me and as i'm slowly recovering it's tali. she was sick all night and has laid on the couch with her bucket nearby just in case. when she gets sick, i go and hold the bucket for her. not a glamorous job, but one a mom has to do from time to time.


she is beginning to feel human again after sleeping all morning, and was sitting with me on the couch when lily started to gag. i noticed and yelled for the dog to get off the couch... but instead tali ran to lily, bucket in hand...


and the dog puked in the bucket.


as lauren would say, i can't make this stuff up. the twisted part, as things unfolded i actually debated for a moment as to whether i could get my camera in time! alas, good sense won out... so i will leave you with this picture taken on december 1, lily's birthday...

Sleep is a very good prescription for what's going around. I had it on Friday, thankfully only the 24 hour variety. I hope Lily gets well soon. Sick pets are not fun.

yep. right in the bucket. i was amazed. of course... that only meant cleaning out the stupid bucket for the 10th time in the last 24 or so hours!

Wow...the mom holding the bucket for the daughter, who holds it for the dog...wow! Makes me want to sing "Circle of Life" or something. :)
