Our Five Ring Circus: Making the rounds

Making the rounds

This nasty stomach virus has been attacking my household, one member at a time.

I am the latest victim. I sat in wait all night, feeling it coming, and it struck at 4 AM. After being violently ill for 3 hours, I've been utterly drained all day. All I have been doing is resting. The simple exertion of walking is physically draining. Right now, I have been puke free since 7 AM, but I have had killer body aches.

I find myself wondering why adults seem to get sicker than kids? It seems like that's always the case. My kids bounced back, just hours after being sick, but I'm barely able to function today.

I'm only slightly ashamed to admit, that I made the kids camp out in my room for hours, watching movies, and playing with toys, until I could drag myself out of bed around 1. I then camped out on the couch. I was so out of it, that I forgot to give Dylan his waffle. I found it in the toaster, an hour after he asked for it, and not once did he complain. I am willing to admit that I put the kids to bed in the same pajamas they woke up in. And stayed in all day.

I was never so relieved to see my dear hubby come home from work. Of course, he arrived with a Valentine's Day card, lip balm, and a box of chocolates. I don't have anything for him, so I felt horrible. He's a great guy!

All I have to say to this nasty virus, is, "GET OUT OF MY HOUSE!"

On a more serious note, I wanted to mention the tragedy of Flight 3407. Many prayers are being said tonight.
