One of those weeks

We are just having one of those weeks around here. On Saturday morning Owen and I both woke up pretty sick with a cough/cold/and general feeling of blah! Because he is so young there is not much he can take for it, and because i nurse him, there is not much I can take!

So yesterday we went to the doctor to see if he could help. OH BOY! So apparently there have been 8 cases of swine flu in Johns squadron, so as soon as they found out i was attached to that group they freaked out. I had a mask thrown on my so fast, i had to stay in one room, they tested me for the swine flu, and i was made to feel like i have some horrible terrible disease. Results in 24-48 hours. I am sure it is not swine flu, i do not feel THAT bad, I just have a bad cold and I can not breathe!

Then last night John and I realized our carpet had a weird smell to it. Let me back up and tell you why. So a couple of weeks ago we did a load of laundry and the washing machine leaked some water out of it. A good amount of water actually. So we called an appliance repair man to come diagnose the problem. He said that the brake on something was broken, so water was just sloshing out. He said we could use it just not on the fullest setting. Ok. So we did. And it leaked. BAD! Water EVERYWHERE.

Side note: I demanded that our new house have a laundry room on the 2nd floor because it would be more convenient.

So yeah, water ALL OVER my 2nd floor, and leaking into my garage from above. NOT GOOD!

The carpet was soaked. So we immediately started sucking up the water with the shop vac and putting a fan on it to hopefully dry out.

Well last night it started smelling a little weird, and john noticed the baseboards were warping a little bit due to the water. TERRIBLE!

So today I have a carpet cleaner man coming by to hopefully suck up all the extra water and professionally clean the carpets to get rid of any and all smell. Cross your fingers.

Did I mention I feel like crud?! So does Owen. Poor thing.

We tried playing with a toy we had not played with before, stacking rings. It worked for a little while:

Then the meltdown began. Please notice the poor runny nose:

So we have decided to do some swinging instead. It is absolutely beautiful here so we have the windows opened and there is a great breeze.

Hopefully the nice cool air will help us all to feel better! :)
