Other Bugs Aren't Welcome, Either

It may be even worse than the stink bug invasion. On Tuesday morning, no one seemed to be feeling all that great. I even asked Buddy if he wanted to stay home because he looked miserable.

He said, no. He didn't want to have to do all the make up work. The Evil Twin took him on to school. I took Sissy a bit later. At 9 am, I get a call from the elementary school. Sissy has some sort of unknown rash or hives on her midsection, sides and back.

I went to pick her up and then to the store for Benedryl. We got home, got settled, I gave her the medicine and then my phone was ringing again. This time it was 10am. Buddy calling, "Can you come pick me up?" Picked him up and we all settled in for the day.

Sissy's rash did go away, but had returned the next morning. Gave her more benedryl and went to check on Buddy. He was still under the weather and decided to stay home and rest.

I had been up and down all night with vomiting and the "other thing". The Evil Twin also had a bad cold, so it was a family sick day!

This morning, Sissy woke up with no rash, but I gave her a small dose of the med just in case. This is their last day before Christmas break and I didn't want her to miss it - they'll probably do some fun stuff. And, it's only a half day, so that won't be so bad.

I'm hoping that Santa brings lots of goodies to our house and yours and I also hope he scoops up all the germs around here and magically makes them disappear, as only Santa could!

I've got a million things on my mind, but due to the stomach flu (?) and a mild sinus infection, I haven't been able to cobble my thoughts together. Lord willing, I'll be back tomorrow. Christmas is almost here! YAY!



  1. Oh Lawd! Hugs to you all chica...Here is hoping you all feel better for Christmas.

  2. Nooze has been sick with a head cold since Christmas vacation started last Friday.

    She woke up with the flu today. Grr.

    I hope that your entire family bounces back tomorrow, and is good to go for the remainder of break!

  3. Like Renn, I hope that you all feel better tomorrow! Merry Christmas!

  4. When it rains, it pours! Only one head cold here this week and it was confined to Mom this time. The Grinch gave it to me.

    I hope you all recover soon!

  5. That is no way to spend a holiday, Hope everyone was all better quickly!
