Team Stimey and the Plague

Well, they got me. First Quinn had the ague. Then Alex. Then, in a burst of impressive projectile vomiting, Jack. Now I have the ague as well.

This would be not quite so bad if not for the fact that I haven’t had a day where all of my kids went to school since December. My winter break is never ending, people. Today I have two sickies home with me. I’m hopeful that they can take care of themselves while I nap.

The couch has been getting quite the workout. We may have to decontaminate it after we all get well.

I’m not sure how the dog felt about this.

I wrote about our weekend with the plague over at White Knuckle Parenting this week. It was not an awesome weekend, friends.

That is all. Wish me luck. Also, get your flu shots. Seriously.

  1. I hope everyone feels better soon! TC seems to be correct about flu shots, btw.

    Also, Moms really deserve immunity from all the bugs that go around…. However, that probably isn’t realistic.

    On a related note, the next time I go to the grocery store I *might* actually use one of those disinfecting towels [Purell?] on the grocery cart handle. You know, just in case your family was there earlier.

    Also, hope you all get some rest. Drink plenty of fluids!

  2. I got the flu shot Monday, but now after reading the above comments, I’m not sure it’s going to help. I sure hope so! I did hear that there is another stomach virus going around that is not the flu but very contagious. Hope you get better soon.

  3. Jack’s projectile vomiting was the only incident of that. Otherwise, I think we all have the flu-flu. I know I do: achy, headachy, fever, chills, sad, sad, did I mention sad? Thank you all for your condolences on my being a total baby. I am sad.

  4. I tested positive for the flu yesterday. At this point, Tamiflu is my friend but all I have been doing is swinging from a bitter chill to a sweaty mess, amongst other things.

    This was after the gastroenteritis gala of last month. I cannot wait until spring.
