The fun started last Tuesday after I had cleaned the house top to bottom. I'm not joking. I had literally cleaned the bathrooms and used my handy new steam mop to sanitize all the floors. I then bathed the kids, cleaned their rooms, changed sheets, etc. It was one of those days I felt like I'd made some real progress and my house just smelled and felt clean. It was a proud 24 minutes. Shortly thereafter all hell broke loose. We put the kids to bed, only to find Ben screaming and covered in vomit 10 minutes later. My home quickly became a bio hazard area.
All that said, there are a few things you can do to protect yourself from this bug from hell...
1) Be prepared with your SBESK (Stomach Bug Emergency Supply Kit)....I know this seems obvious, but you'll want to stock it with some heavy duty cleaning products, old towels, and as many nips of Vodka as you can possibly fit into the kit.
2) Become a recluse. Stay away from all people. Don't leave your home. Quit your job, build a garden out back and live off the land so that you never have to make human contact with anyone who may be carrying the bug from hell.
3) Start a petition on Change.org to stop the stomach bug from being able to enter your home more than 1 time per calendar year. Let's stand together against this thing. There's safety in numbers. Oh wait, not it this case...it's actually a breeding ground for germs. My bad.
