The Low-Down

Here's the low-down...

1) Went to bed super-early last night. I felt like crud and felt like I was getting the flu. I had a ton of laundry to do, but not a stitch of it got washed.
2) Kirk came home from work yesterday sick as a dog...so that made two of us. Nothing good can come from 2 parents laid up in bed and 3 boys running free in the house....the house is still standing, so that's a blessing.
3) I went to work this morning, still feeling nauseous, but felt like I had to go. Gotta save those sick days for when the babies are sick. Everyone knows mamas can't get sick!!
4) Kirk got to stay home from work today...that stunk because I didn't. No fair.
5) Got in my car to go to school...still frustrated that I was having to go....and got bit by a spider. That's right...a spider. I don't think he was poisonous because my leg hasn't swelled up to the size of a stop sign yet.
6) While I was dropping the kids off at school, Sawyer tells me that he feels sick. I went all day wondering if I was going to have to go pick him up from school to go home, which I could have done in the first place.
7) Today was Taco Day at school...so, I had to smell cafeteria tacos all day...not great for a sick stomach.
8) I stopped on my way home from work at the little store in our community to buy Gatorade, Sprite, saltines, and chicken noodle soup....food for the ailing one at home.
9) I got home to find the patient still super-punie.

Good news?

I'm better. Wonder if he'd be mad if I ate the steak that was on the menu for tonight without him?!?! Maybe I'll wait 'till he goes back to sleep to eat it!

I'm sorry you haven't felt good. Hope the rest of the fam is ok. We missed you tonight but I'm guessing fried fish wouldn't have been very appetizing for you.

So glad you're better. Hope the rest of the family doesn't catch it. Sounds just like what we had...but my hubby had it worse too. I think mine was just a really bad case of morning sickness, but accompanied by a construction company drilling in my head. Count your blessings...the two of you were both sick, but you had kids that could fend for themselves. We were both sick and I got to be the one to take care of a 14 month old because I was less sick. Fun times!

I'm glad you're better. Nothing worse than feeling sick when you're a mom and everyone depends on you! Hope Kirk is better soon.

I wonder if we combined laundry how many loads we'd be looking at. I'm still not caught up on laundry from our camping trip.
