the bug

last time ian had a holiday off everyone was recovering from the stomach flu. well everyone but me i had the honor of bleaching, bathing, wiping, snuggling watching princess movie after princess movie. this is what my room looked like for 2 days.

eventually the girls got better and i was relieved i didn't catch it.

2 sleeping girls in our bed. complete with water cup and puke bowl.

then ian started to feel bad. here we go again except this time it was getting water, staying out of our bed, distracting the girls, preparing soup, buying saltine crackers and sprite.

then ian got better after a couple of days. and again i was grateful i didn't get the bug.

then riley got sick again. i was back to snuggling, bleaching, watching princess movies, missing church, serving sprite and saltines, explaining as best i can why you can't eat and drink right after throwing up.

then 2 days riley got better and again i expressed my gratitude for not getting this plague that had hit our house.

well that was about 2 weeks ago.

last night after having to leave a temple session early because i couldn't make it. i showed 6 of our friends all of my best puking skills on the car ride home nope didn't make it out of the car but did grace ian's temple bad with my presence. yep still 3 exits away from home. i proceeded to show ian my skills all through the night. i feel gross. i am tired of being in bed. i'm sorry ian is spending his holiday weekend bringing me water, sprite, saltine crackers and drawing baths for me so i can warm up washing his bag and belongings, my clothes and cleaning out my car. i'm almost positive it's not the, "bug" it's just plain old food poisoning from chick-fil-a. but did i mention my friend who helped me in the car is now home in the same boat.

do you think i may have 5 less friends?

one of my new years resolutions is to lose 6lbs. DONE.

first off......STOP it with that resolution - clearly you have no weight to lose! no more crazy talk buff! second the car? you know you were with good friends because if you were with me in the car and you puked - i would've puked! can NOT handle that. i hope you are feeling better! what a nightmare

Sorry...I'm pretty sure we started that with your family.

It would take a lot more than that to lose us as friends. But maybe that is what you were trying to do? :)

i hardly ever check your blog... but is it awful for me to laugh at your puking story? reminds me of the time i was 12 at a sleepover on the top bunk with two sleeping girls... not one of my best moments. we all have them. glad you are feeling better now!!
