is really pathetic.
Well, I'm hoping this is the last of it. I was the 4th and last (I hope) member of our family to get some sort of 24-hour bug going around. Sarah Jane got it Thursday, Todd on Saturday (during our Old People's New Year's Eve Party - lovely), Sophia and I last night. We've been trying to protect people from it as much as possible, but I never actually know what's safe - what's the incubation period on this? Once you show symptoms, aren't you almost past the contagious point? So, if we've passed it on to you or your family, I apologize. It stinks. Literally.
I'm still feeling gross, but tired of laying in bed, so I thought I'd share another sophia story.....about 2am I'm slumped over the toilet in our (only) bathroom. Sophia comes waltzing in and I say, "do you need to go potty? I'll get out of your way." "No, I just threw up", she announced. Several more times throughout the night she came down the steps, carrying her puke bucket, looking like Little Red Riding Hood, practically skipping at times. I just don't get it. I feel like I want to die, and Sophia thinks illness is just a minor inconvenience. Thankfully, my amazing husband kept her entertained all day so I could get some rest and feel disgusting in private.
So begins my Winter Break - when my kids are at school and I have all sorts of time to be productive and get things done. Hopefully, tomorrow I'll feel like a million bucks.
Hope to see some of you in the next couple of weeks. I'm getting excited about what God's showing Todd and I about His vision for UIS and LLCC.....but we'll try to protect you from our germs....anyone know how long we need to be careful??
