A not so simple task

Cleaning my toilet has been a task that is long overdue. I have not been well lately and seem unable to do much more than lay in bed all day. But today I decided the toilet needed to be cleaned. So I squirted the inside of the bowl with toilet bowl cleaner and let it sit while I put the tea pot on our single electric burner to warm some water for cleaning. However, an all-to-frequent wave of nausea hit me and I threw-up everything I've eaten today, "washing" away all the blue cleaner inside the bowl. I squatted (can't sit or kneel -- our whole bathroom is the shower so the floor is wet) hugging the bowl as the tea pot started to squeal that it was ready. I decided not to clean the toilet today.

Been there. NO FUN! So did you make yourself some ginger tea instead?

Oh Amy that sounds miserable! Come and move in with me and I'll take care of you :). Are you coming home to have the baby?

Oh, Amy! I'm sorry your pregnancy has been so rough for you! I didn't realize you were still combating the N/V that you had at the beginning!

Eric and Jessica said...

I'm sorry :( Did you decide to return to the states to have the baby? I hope you start feeling better!

I so understand! I've had the flu on top of the norm this week. I'm sorry that you don't feel better. I hope that Sam cleans the toilet for you. I'd send Anne and Megan to do it (I just taught Riggs as well, but he needs some major supervision) if I could.

I hope you could flush the toilet. I'm sure there was enough acid in there to kill some lingering bacteria.

I hope you are feeling better. Sorry you couldn't clean your toilet. I totally would come and clean it for you if you didn't leave in China.
