It Was Just the Beginning

I would never have guessed what would have transpired over the past two days. If I thought long enough it makes sense. I didn't think long enough.

After doing a load of laundry from the barfing child the ball began rolling out of control and has yet to stop. If you get queasy from reading about things that come from bodies, do not read on.

At 5 pm my littlest child began feeling better and my 10 year old threw up. His birthday was the next day so I desperately prayed that he would be well when he awoke. I sent him to bed early and he spent the next several hours with the dry heaves. By 9:00 pm his cousin threw up. By 2:00 am his other cousin threw up. By 3:00 pm his little brother threw up, and by 3:30 it was my turn. He had a very UNeventful birthday as everyone laid around all day. I could not move from the bed until this morning while my sister-in-law did loads of laundry the entire day. All in all, it was very awful. Out of twelve people, only four did not get sick...why not those four? Some things I will never understand.

Today I actually managed to eat something other than saltines and half of a banana. It reminded of the saying from the movie, "The Devil Wears Prada." The one receptionist, before she is supposed to go to France for a big fashion show says, "I'm only a stomach flu away from my ideal size." OOOH, I would not wish that upon anyone!

Almost everyone is up and moving except for my brother. Motorcycles and quads sit as we watch another rain storm pass through, but there is ice cream in the freezer and coffee to be made. Who needs motorcycles?
