It just won't end

It has been more than a whirlwind here since Christmas.  Last Tuesday I took Eligh in for the beginnings of a cough, turned out to be sinusitis, tonsillitis, ear infections, and strep throat.  On that same day, Kinsley was throwing up.  My dad and Cody got the U-haul and loaded it up and the vehicles Tuesday.  Wednesday, Cody, my dad, and I drove down to Missouri to get things set up (as much as we could).  My mom kept the kids so they wouldn't try escaping.

Wednesday we get the beds set up and everything in the massive garage until we can get through it all.   After hooking up the washing machine, we see that it is leaking water, so that has to be fixed.  We go to bed with water backing up into our master bathtub.  Call Thursday morning and find it is sewer water backing up, which the rental agency came out and spent until mid afternoon replacing the water pump, which caused water to come through the garage, which required us to move all of the boxes and totes outside so it wouldn't get full of sewer water (yes, disgusting).  On this same day, Cody is throwing up with the flu, so not much of a help.

The kids and my mom get to the house around 4pm Thursday, and the kids' rooms were mostly put together, so it wasn't a horrible ordeal.

My parents leave Friday morning, and we spend the majority of our morning in the basement (toy room, master bedroom, bathroom) because of a tornado warning, that did touch down on the base and destroyed some homes, and is probably 5 - 10 minutes away.

Sunday, Addyson and I spend the day on the couch sleeping and or in the bathroom throwing up non-stop.

Monday - Cody leaves for GA to finish clearing.  I was still weak from being sick, didn't get crap done, because standing was hard enough, plus Addy is still throwing up for the majority of the day.  The washing machine cost over $200 to fix, so that was another slap in the face.

Today is Tuesday and we are alive and able to stand and really want all the bullshit to end.

So, once I can see the end of these boxes and have some more energy and some good luck, I'll be around more.  Shit just won't stay away from us at the moment, so my hands are tied.


  1. Oh, Carrie! What awful ordeals you've been going through. The pukes---awful. Sewage---awful. As if packing/moving/unpacking aren't awful enough!

    Hang in there, Friend! Hope you're all feeling better ASAP!

  2. I hope you are able to get a break soon. I'm so sorry everything has been so crappy (no pun intended).
    Hang in there Momma!

  3. Oh no...things need to change right now! You need life to swing in a different direction! Hang in there...it can only get better, right?

  4. I can't believe you made it through all this crap alive!

    I hope the worst of it is behind you, and things will settle down!
