Weekend Update

It's 5:30pm on a Saturday night and everyone in the house is sleeping, except me. The fact that we have only been awake for about 4-5 hours today should give you a good indication of how things on going on the "influenza" side of things.

We are all now taking Tamiflu. It seems to be helping quite a bit, as each day is getting better. And the health department hasn't put a quarantine sign on the outside of our house yet, although they may as well.

Abbie's finger IS officially broken. She has a finger splint thingy on it. When she started complaining about the pain, I told her the story of my friend Cindy whose son broke his arm last year and played hockey all season with it in a cast, hiding it under his gear so the referee didn't see it. He is only 10. I'm such a mean mom. Hey kid, suck it up.

We got a surprise package today from Julia in Germany. A zillion pieces of chocolate... and a few gifts for the girls birthdays. (Thanks Julia... and if you are reading this.... I MISS YOU !!! )

For the heck of it, I decided to take this photo of the only thing sustaining our family right now.....

Here, let me diagnose for you. It's because your house is too clean. Did you read that study? It seems that the dirtier your house, the less sick you get. I'm going with it.

Love you guys. I hope you can kick this soon but in the meantime, take advantage of the excuse to sleep all day long.

Haha! Just kidding :) I hope so much that you all are feeling better today!
