Stomach Flu Gone

Praise God the stomach flu has left us.  It was back to work around here as normal today.  A few times some nausea came sweeping in but we were all able to keep going and say good bye flu!  The little children finished reading all the books for the November book it program and was able to score them a free pizza tonight, way to go kiddos!  Keep up the hard work and read read read!

Thanksgiving leftovers

Well the one child that didn't make it because of the stomach flu was able to get here the next day for Thanksgiving leftovers.  We had a great visit.  I was so glad I was able to see all my children this week.  One  day later and you know it, the little children came down with the stomach flu.  One by one and then it hits me yesterday.  Nausea, has set in but not vomiting yet for me.  I cleaned up one mess after the other all night long from the little ones.  I finally was able to get them some bags since they were not able to make it to the bathroom before they would start vomiting.  Now after resting most the day and into the night every muscle in my body aches.  Not sure if its part of the flu or because I tripped over a baby doll going down the stairs and hit the bottom of the stairway.  Anyway the only thing we have been able to keep down so far is sprite.  And the little ones didn't keep all that down.  I hope this is no longer than 24 hour stomach flu because I am ready for this to be over now!

Thanksgiving was great and all the kids showed up except one who had the stomach virus.  We had a huge feast and then rested the end of the day.  Thought about going out to score some deals at the stores and thought no way did I want to fight the crowd so I stayed home.  The wind is blowing and it seems to be getting cooler today.  There is a chance for snow on Sunday.  We have 7 new baby cockatiels and one more egg to hatch.  We have yellow and white ones.  Well here is to a day of cleaning up and preparing my coupons to go get some deals.

November Updates

It's a cool crisp morning here in southern Indiana this morning.  You can always tell when the wood stove is almost empty that's for sure.  Nothing a little hot coffee can't fix though. We have three doctor appointments today so I will be glad when this day is over.  The kid's have to get their annual check up and then we will be good till next year.  We brought the birds in from the garage so now it sounds like we are living in the jungle. It is just too cold out there since he doesn't keep the stoves in the garage going all winter.  A couple of the Cockatiels are setting on some eggs so it wont be long and we will be having baby cockatiels again.  I will try to upload some new pictures of the new birds when they arrive. Have a great day out there in blogland!
