Ugh...the bug got ME!

Yup...I was not immune to its charms.

Thursday night, I FINALLY got what the rest of the family had battled. It was not pretty. I was still on the couch, giving Scott some restful sleep...but then we had to switch places! I was flat on my back yesterday.

But once again, God's infinite wisdom was at hand. He knew I would be sick, but He made sure it didn't happen until Scott was going to be home all day (training holiday yesterday), so that he wouldn't have to miss work to take care of the kids. What a great blessing.

Today, I am a bit achy and tire quite easily, but I will be well enough to do some things today, thank God!

I do not like getting sick, but I have to say I'm glad it's over with. Just having that niggling feeling at the back of my head, knowing there was this virus rampant in my house, lying in wait for me...well, I'm glad it's done.

I call it the GE diet (gastro-enteritis). You tend to lose a few pounds quite rapidly. Scott was down close to 5, I am down 3. Not the best way to lose weight, but hey, when you're trying anyway, you'll take the few extras!

Now to get caught up on housework...a little at a time. Dirty dishes in the sink, stripping the beds, disinfecting the bathroom one more time....but I'll do it as I can!

I will pray that you heal quickly...because YOU KNOW Moms don't get sick days. Thankfully Scott is there to take care of you.

You should take a picture if your sick-self for next week's SPT
