the best rice ever

It has been a long time since I've had the stomach flu.
I honestly cannot remember the last time.
Yesterday was the wierdest day.

I was at work...
and Shawn wasn't there yet.
I started to notice my stomach was hurting a little.
I called him (to find out where he was)
He wasn't sure he was coming in..
He had a stomach ache.
"I do too... I wonder if we're getting something".

seriously, within the next 20 minutes my stomach went from "kinda" to "BAD"
He found someone to cover for his afternoon appts.
I didn't have any , so I just went home.
So did he.
It was 1pm.

Lindsey was already home ... recovering from a head cold.
So, we went to bed.
I think she picked the girls up from school.
I think she took Em to dance.
I think she got them some supper.
I think she bathed them.
I think she helped with their homework.
I think she put them to bed.
What a trooper. What an amazing daughter. I love you Lindsey. Thanks.

I'm pretty sure I didn't see anything except the back of my eyelids and the bathroom toilet.

We both slept... and ... well, you know...
literally, until this morning. I got up and took the kids to school today.
Then, went back to bed again.
Until about 1:00 this afternoon.
exactly 24 hours.

Then, I ate rice.
It was the best rice ever.

That is EXACTLY how it hit me, too. I was driving 40 min. to my group location and felt kind bad, by the time I got there it was really bad. So, I literally turned around and went home. Did the same as you till about 1:00 today. Thank God my awesome mom-in-law was here to take care of the kids. Glad you're better.
Should we blame Heth for the flu? She had it first.

Hope it's all better by now!

I woke up with a sore throat and losing my voice this morning, and Tiffany was up every hour and a half last night with a cold. Tis the season. Hmm....maybe we should go to the doctor........

Well, you looked great last night with your rhinestone-studded sweatshirt. So glad you are feeling better. So glad I didn't get it yet.

I hate being sick. Especially when your used to being on the move all the time. You'd think the time down would be great, but it's beginning to drive me a little crazy. Glad to hear your doing better. I guess when you've got such close friends and family we just love to share the wealth, even when it comes to illness.
