Someone has been sick in this house since last Thursday morning.
It started with me. I’ll spare you the details but let’s just say a stomach bug found us.
Tim and The B Man left for work and school as usual, but by 9:15 or so that morning I was calling him to come rescue me. I believe some of my words on the phone included, but were not limited to, “I cannot take care of kids right now.”
And then I barely got out of bed for the next 2 days, my time comprised of aching, sweating, moaning, drinking through a straw and moaning some more.
Stomach bugs can kiss my…. well, you know…
And then of course, Tim turned up sick EARLY Saturday morning.
For some reason he seems to always have the need to “beat” me at the sick thing and it hit him somewhat worse. His fever even topped out at a .05 more than mine. He’s so damn competitive sometimes. 😉
And now, it’s my poor, sweet first born, who usually seems to escape these types of things. Not this time.
I’m regretting not purchasing stock in the Dr. Pepper company (for the amount of Canada Dry Gingerale we’ve consumed) and whichever company makes saltines (Nabsico?) and Campbell’s, you know for the plain chicken noodle soup, not the canned kind but the “fancy” out of the box/packet kind. Oh and Malt O Meal. Does anyone else beside us still even eat Malt O Meal, except for people born before 1950? I don’t care. It’s good when you’re sick.
(p.s. none of those were sponsored mentions, but if Dr. Pepper can spare some, we really love Canada Dry Gingerale, you know, when we’re SICK. he he.)
Anyway, we think K already had a tinge of this even though she never had fever and G is most certainly NOT out of the woods yet. The incubation period is approximately 36 hours. The clock is ticking.
If you’re reading this, I’m hoping everyone at your house is well and stays well.
(no one says that anymore do they? I’m getting old.)
Oh and a photo, because I like it.
