Woah, that Smells BAD!

Ohhhhhh, woe is me. Woe, woe...woah. No, I'm okay. Not so much woe today!

My son caught a bug or something and has been throwing up since tuesday. He only threw up once yesterday morning, so I thought he was done; but no, 1 am last night he was up and at it again. So I want to think he's done today, but I'm scared that at some random moment he's going to turn and huck all over me. Its a great way to live. Keeps you on the edge of your seat for sure.

My house smells like barf.

The boy up chucked right by my computer chair, so now whenever I'm on the computer (and that may or may not be a LOT), I get the pleasure of smelling vomit. "Why don't you clean it up then, hmmmm?" whats that you say? Well smarty pants, I HAVE! MANY, MANY, MANY times. In fact I've sprayed so much crap and chemicals and whatnot on that spot I'm surprised I haven't made a hole there. But the smell won't go away! I think part of the problem is that since I can't stand the smell I keep spraying it and it won't dry, and I think it needs to dry to really stop smelling. But it smells so BAD! Must. Keep. Spraying.

Oh look, chocolate! Yum...

Maybe I'll go buy a small bag of kitty litter to soak up the junk and maybe that will help. But then I'd have to take the boy out in public and what if he pukes in the middle of Wal-Mart?


I think I'll spray this baby down one more time and go make some banana bread. Later!


  1. If he pukes in the middle of Wal Mart, someone else will clean it up.

    Doesn't sound like such a bad idea now, does it?

  2. I hate it when the little ones are sick!!! sorry!

  3. Cat litter will just make a mess. (If it gets too wet, it turns into mush that takes forever to dry properly!) I would recommend just dumping baking soda over the spot and letting that soak up both moisture and the smell. It dries much more quickly, then you can vacuum it right up! But, that's the pits! I hate the smell of puke, especially while pregnant!

  4. It's awful when kids are sick but it's just not cool at all when they're puking all over the place. Not cool. I'm soo sorry. Hopefully the next few weeks will be way better to make up for this last one.

  5. I can't think of a BETTER place to barf --then at Wal-Mart.

  6. Don't know how close it is to the kitchen, but boil some water with cinamon in it. That seems to help for the pervading scents.
