We had been so lucky this winter to escape the doom of the sneaky colds, coughs, and flues the winter brings until last week. Unfortunately, the enemy surrounded us and attacked from every angle possible. Ida got the flu, Emerson got croup, Josh got a cough and migraine, and I remain the soul survivor. Amid the battle we introduced a new barf bucket. We had previously been using the dingy green Tupperware bowl that shares the responsibilities of catching out-coming projectiles, as well as, storing our freshly baked sweets. Fortunately we have two green "buckets," but the never ending task of remembering which one stores pleasant things and which one doesn't was daunting.
So, taking over the responsibilities of the green barf bucket is a new and improved barf bucket that bounces from car to bed in a blink of an eye, catches moving projectiles with ease, and is wonderfully recyclable. My friend, Marian, posted about a family adventure where barf buckets were needed and this is what she used. I thought it was an awesome idea. Thanks Marian, we are converted to the handled barf bucket!
