A few days ago Thatcher and Tanner appeared to have what seemed like a cold, which in turn triggered the asthma which then triggered vomiting, which I thought was being caused by all the coughing. They had a slight fever which I thought was from the cold.
Hmmm. Wrong. So very wrong. Suddenly out of no where I became ill. I felt horrible and my bones ached – I figured that was due to my severe osteoarthritis. Nope I had a pretty violent stomach bug that lasted for just over 24hrs.
All I could do was lay down, it hurt too much to move and when I tried to my head felt as though it was about to bust open. Oh how I felt so guilty. As I am the laundry queen I knew laundry was quickly getting behind and that I would soon pay the price of being sick. How dare me!
Finally I woke up and was able to move – I finally felt semi normal. However, as soon as the children were in school and the twins were napping I knew what was waiting for me:
ARGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG I really hate laundry!
Yes there was at least 6 loads that were behind schedule!
But that wasn’t the worse of it – oh no. Did you forget I have 8 children? This morning Ryley woke up sick and tonight Marie was hit so that means only 4 more children left. The laundry won’t go away though because that many children means a lot more vomit and a lot more sheets / towels / clothes to wash!
Next week the flu shots are scheduled.
Do you and your family get the flu shot each year? Do you think it helps?
Until next time
