No good, very bad day

Well, not the whole day. This morning I was able to work on Halloween costumes and I nearly have them finished.... But then the phone rang and it was Ry who was sick to her stomach. I ran to the school to pick her up. I also needed to run a piece of medical equipment back to the company. I thought she would be fine and she was until we headed home, then she said she wasn't doing well and rolled down the window... The rush of air blew the ick all over the side of our van and back on Eden who was sitting behind her... She wasn't finished... I had a reusable grocery bag that she used to catch the rest... We drove straight to the gas station for a car wash. When we got home I went to nurse Miss May. I was sitting there trying to figure out how to clean out the car when Munch came in to tell me her tummy hurt too... Then she proceeded to spew all over the carpet... She is upset and I now have two ick messes to clean up. I don't do it all well, so I am heaving but keeping it together.(barely) i don't have much time to think cause my phone is ringing and I clumsily try and grab it while the baby is attached. It's the school... Gator has ralphed all over his desk. He tried to tell his teacher, it was the French class and he couldn't say it in French to her so it didn't end well. At least I didn't have to clean that one up. I didn't know how I would manage the kids... Dad was far away so he couldn't help. So my friend Issac came to stay with the girls while I ran back to the school in my stinky car. I just threw a little towel over the ick on the carpet. It would wait... The girls had just jumped out of the shower and Gayor hopped in. Everyone was snug in their pj's. I cleaned the van with the baby in the stroller to keep her away. She was not having it. She wanted to be down when she was up and up when she was down.... My friend Angie must have heard my prayer cause she came to hold the baby while I cleaned, disinfected and de-icked. May spit up,., it doesn't count tho right? Eden made it to the bathroom but missed the toilet and ended up shooting it on the wall and floor behind.., that is fun to take care of... I guess if you have a hasmat suit you are welcome to come by, but if not you better stay away.
