I spent most of the night before last on the floor of the bathroom with the stomach flu. Which means that I spent the day yesterday on the couch or in bed. My kids ate fruit, shredded cheese out of the bag and cookies from my cookie exchange.

The floor of the living room is still covered in cheese and really needs mopped after the milk tag they played at lunch. Oh, that is where you take a drink of milk and then spit it at each other.

This morning I actually managed to get Lillian to school on time and Isaac dressed- yesterday Lillian stayed home and in her pajamas all day and Isaac only had on a diaper and a button up shirt on with only one button fastened.

I am going to try to take a shower today and maybe do some laundry. The stomach pains have passed, but I am still so light headed. I just think I need to take it easy and have another lounge day. Just. no. energy.

Which means that I have to miss the last day of our ladies Bible study and the pot luck tonight with my knitting group. My husband rented Wal-E (or whatever) last night to keep the kids entertained this afternoon, God bless him! He even filled up the tank of my van last night when he took the kids to McDonald's and stayed there for 2 hours, cuddled up in the back of the van with blankets and watched a movie.

So, if anyone has some spare time and energy- I could put it to good use! Just send it my way!

Ugh! I've been sick recently too and my poor husband has been coming home from work, making supper, getting the kids ready for bed, cleaning stuff up - and then collapsing into bed exhausted. I'm glad I'm better and I hope you're feeling better, too.

Ugh...I feel for you. I just got over being sick myself, and feel equally blessed to have a hubby that will pick up slack for me when I am out of commish.

Hope you're feeling better tomorrow. Just take your what you can do each day until you have your strength back...all the truly important stuff will get done in time.

Prayers for ya, friend!

I was thinking that I hadn't seen you around the blogosphere in a bit...hope you're all on the mend and that you had a great Christmas.

So sorry you've been sick! Wow! That is so CLASSIC that you fed them shredded cheese and fruit!

And, correction? Your hubby fully got Wall-e for himself and he knows it! It's AWESOME! You must watch it!! ;)

Oh you poor thing. It is so hard to be sick and be the mama at the same time.
I hope you feel better!
