Death Warmed Over

I'm home sick. No, not homesick, but at home because I am sick. Flu-like illness. High fever, aches and pains, and nausea. Ick.

I thought I'd do some writing, but now I see that just isn't going to happen. I'll try again later.

I'm going back to bed.

UPDATE: At noon the phone rang, Eight year old, who was at a day camp program threw up. All over himself. I had to go pick him up. (Mr. Bee is out of town until next week. Seventeen is at work.) Not to brag or anything - but me with a temp of 102, unshowered, snarled hair in scrunchie, baggy sweatpants, flip-flops - has to walk into the building, talk to the teacher and sign him out. Ugh.

My fever broke at about 4:00, and aside from a little bit of a sore throat I'm feeling better. Now to get Eight feeling good again. His temp is 104. :-(

Ugh! That's the pits. Where's the fun in being sick if you have to nurse someone else? LOL I hope 8 is feeling better soon. Maybe the two of you can snuggle together in front of a good movie. (Night at the Museum comes to mind. ;) )

How are you and the little one now?

We are feeling much better thanks! It seems to last 24 to 36 hours. We were the 3rd and 4th family members to get this in the last 10 days. 4 down, 2 to go.

Beth, he would really like Night at the Museum! Great suggestion.
