Down for the count

Yesterday it was my turn to have the stomach bug bite me. For those keeping tabs, that would be 2 of the 4 of us that have been hit and I fear for hubby and especially the little guy. 

It really got a hold of me and does not want to let go. When I got up in the morning it was bad, but it was nothing compared to what came later. Later in the day a fever joined to add some fun. As the afternoon arrived I knew there was no way that I could drive to get the kindergarten kid from school. Driving while curled up in fetal position, shaking from chills, and burning up from a fever does not work. Thankfully the little guy was good and played nicely while I rested and my father saved the day. Papa was able to pick NHL up from school.

When hubby arrived home from work it was my cue to collapse on the bed. I barely moved most of the evening and only recall a few screams from the kids as they were unhappy with meal choices from Dad. At 10:00 my temperature was 101.5 and I managed to get some more ibuprofen to lull me back to sleep.

This morning I am able to move around more than yesterday, but still feel like my batteries are completely drained. Clearly I will not be the Energizer Bunny today! Still, life as Mom must continue to move on. While attempting to eat something this morning hubby notified me that he had no dress shirts for work. I asked why he never said anything yesterday. Apparently he did, but I was a little preoccupied with not being volcanic like a certain kindergarten kid was on Sunday.

So any guess what I am attempting to do now?        

Laundry of course!      (please note the extreme sarcasm)

There is a wash in right now. With any luck, I will be able to finish it and possibly another, assuming I am not down for the count again later today.
