Sick House

Holy Schamoly, Batman! It's a sick house ... AGAIN.

So is this stomach virus just striking us here in Tulsa, or is it the new sensation that's sweeping the nation? Because I don't want to feel alone here, people. This is getting old.

Today it's Goof Ball. I walk into volunteer central at church yesterday (I work in the preschool on Sunday mornings, as does Goof Ball), and he's slumped over a table, white as a ghost, telling me he threw up in the hall. Thank goodness the hall floors are cement. I came back ten minutes later to find him ralphing in the trash can.

So he's home from school today. Telling me he's hungry, but won't even take crackers because he's afraid of what will happen. At least he's learned to listen to his body's cues. Well, except that he asked for a shake. Uh, no.

I'm going to work furiously to finish my latest read and have a review ready for tomorrow. This book's taking a while to get through, but it's been worth it so far.

Until I write again ...

Pedialyte popsicles.

Oh so sorry. I hate that kind of stuff and it seems to always hit this time of year. Get well all.

What Mama said

You are not alone. Same kinda stuff stopping people in their tracks here in Idaho. Not me--yet. Plenty of clear liquids--easy on the tummy and easy to clean up. Nothin' worse than the dry heaves. Well, maybe giving birth is worse, but I don't think that will be a problem for Goof Ball.

And in reply to the cat trade. Nah. Thomas is LOUD too. Gonna stick with what I know, and love.

OK, SO WEIRD. For some reason, I removed you from my Google reader...I don't know why, I think I thought you had stopped blogging! Anyway, the other day I was thinking, "Hmmm! I miss Flea!" and then I saw you comment at Woulda Coulda Shoulda and clicked on you and *POOF* here's your blog! So now I have a lot of catch up to do!

You poor thing!!

I swear by Airborne. I make my kids drink it all of the time. It didn't spare us from the last flu sweep, but then again, we hadn't been drinking it, so maybe it would have ;-)

I hope Goof Ball kicks this really quickly. So sorry Flea.

Are y'all better yet???

Hope everyone is able to keep all their crackers down by now...

But this did remind me of when I was younger (you know, just a couple of years ago...) and would be sick. I'd know I was on the mend when I would request bean burritos from Taco Bell.
