We have the flu!

I hate when the kids get sick. They don't all do it at the same time but have to spread it out over a long stretch of time. Right now Racky is down for the count he has the aches, a fever, double ear infection and bronchitis. Biggie has swollen lymph nodes and a low fever and is well on his way to being full blown sick also. Lula so far so good. I'm warming up chicken soup from the freezer and adding more veggies to it to try to stretch it a little farther. I make my "cauldron" full at the beginning of the month and freeze it for lunches or an easy dinner on sick days like today, but we only have one 4 cup bowl left. I have to go to the store something fierce. The hubby only gets paid monthly and I still haven't gotten his check or anything yet, oh well hubby will be home tomorrow so I can run around town and get my errands done. I suppose I could hop them up on Tylenol and drag them all over town because the Tylenol is masking their fever and their aches but I won't even go there. Okay maybe I will. If you have sick children STAY HOME. I know it's not always easy but who said motherhood is easy. Anything this rewarding takes some sacrifice. Okay I'm off my soap box now. Well I hope you have a good week end!

That is a total bummer you guys are sick over there. No fun. Hopefully you will start to feel better soon. I completely understand about the whole going out with sick kids thing. Sometimes it can't be avoided, but most of the time, it is so much better for them just to stay home and get their rest. That's what we would do if we ourselves were sick. Anytime you can't get out of the house PLEASE feel free to give me a call and I can run and get you a couple things or whatever to get you through.
