It’s official – there is a flu wreaking havoc in our house. I don’t know if it’s H1N1, but all the signs are there. Our middle-schooler came down with it Friday night, and she’s been in bed ever since. She had to miss a birthday party and church this weekend, and she won’t be going to school tomorrow. Today our 5-year-old and 1-year-old starting showing symptoms, and tonight our 3-year-old looks like she might be starting to get it. And oh yeah – why would you think this one skipped Hubby, who gets EVERYTHING that comes around? Looks like it’s making an appearance in him tonight. As usual, (except for the flu season when I was pregnant and was sick from Thanksgiving until Christmas – one bug after another) I remain the last one standing, as yet untouched by the virus (crossing fingers, knocking wood…)
So up goes this post, and down goes our family – I think a flu outbreak is a good reason to go to bed at 10, don’t you? Here’s hoping and praying that it doesn’t hit us too hard and also that I may stay well enough to care for my family. We are going to have to quarantine ourselves this week, which is a shame since we had plans for every single night. Tomorrow will see a slew of phone calls made and emails sent to cancel everything. Health comes first, of course.
Best wishes to readers for staying healthy!!!
