Sick Days


Beware... the flu bug is on the loose. Corbin came down with the flu on Thursday...throwing up, diahrrea, no appetite, lethargic, and pale. He laid on the couch watching The Snowman over and over and over again, in and out of his 3 naps. Every thing he ate or drank he threw up. Lovely, I know. Guess who he passed it to? ME! On Saturday afternoon I got the aches, chills, fever, tummy pains, lethargic, pale, no appetite symptoms myself and battled them the rest of the weekend. It's no fun when your children are sick, but it's even worse when mommy is sick because everyone wants her and she can't do ANYTHING but lay around. So, here is a HUGE THANKS and LOVE YA BABE for Jeff who put up with us all weekend. He effectively "ran the show" while I was down and out by: changing all the diapers, making meals, taking Corbin on a few excursions (including to Church) by himself so I could try and sleep, vacuuming and dusting the whole house, buying and building a new bookshelf in Corbin's room, and holding the 2 kids as much as possible. I know it's hard so thanks Jeff. And we're happy to report that Corbin and I are both back to normal health and strength.

At least it was on a weekend so Jeff was there to help. The WORST is being sick when you have no help.
Glad everyone is feeling better.
(and Hi there) :D
