We are back from the dead!

Wow, watch out for the flu this season! It knocks you out flat for days! Thursday around noon it hit me, and I was down for the rest of the day. Michael got it on Friday and we were both worthless. Luckily Reece had only a half day of school on Friday so he could be our little slave boy and take care of us, as well as tend to Maya and Mason. What a weekend for Reece, what a trooper. He spent his weekend getting Maya and Mason food, clothing and drinks. He was also sweet enough to entertain them the best he could. Luckily today I was functioning at about 80% so I could relieve him of his slave duties, so he could go to school.

It is bad, don't get me wrong, when you have the flu. But, when you have 3 little ones, a dog, a cat, and 6 chickens to take care of as well, then it gets nasty! It is times like this that I reflect back and say, Thanks Mom and Dad! I know times were rough when you were raising us, thanks for stickin' it out!

Love you mom and dad!

Hope you are all feeling better soon! What a trooper Reese is. I subbed in his class today (very good student, helpful, sweet) and when I read your blog, I mentally backtracked to see how much contact I'd actually had him. I should be good - four years at the school has built up a pretty good immune system.

That's so great that he could help you out. What a trooper! Hope you're all feeling better soon.

I got the flu last year and it hit sooo fast. I was feeling below the weather in the morning and by lunch I wanted to die - really. Mike came home for lunch and I couldn't stop sobbing because the prospect of taking care of my kids while I felt that way was so horrifying! Really, I am TOTALLY getting a flu vaccine this year. It's a killer! (I guess it literally is!)

The flu? Yuck. Good thing you had slave boy-- I was laughing out loud!
