Aaahhh, life is good...and then...

This afternoon after school it was cold and rainy and we came home and I got on the couch with the girls and watched "Charlie Brown Christmas" that I had tivo'd the night before. I sat under a warm cozy blanket just enjoying that moment and then it happened. The stomach virus. Anna got sick. It is now 11:00 and she has not gotten sick in a while. I spent most of the night trying to keep Addie away from her and washing my hands 1000 times. Why am I so paranoid you say? My worst fear is that this would happen while Nick is out of town. Yes, you guessed it. He's not only out of town, he's all the way across the country. No turning around for him. I just pray that I don't get it myself. I am armed. My best friend, Tammy went to the store for me. I called her in a panic when Anna got sick and told her to get me Gingerale (I know there's not ginger in it. But its what my mom gave me when I got sick), Lysol, and Clorox wipes. Luckily I had gone to the grocery store yesterday so I am prepared to be cooped up in the house for the next few days. Those 3 things were all I needed. She put them at the front door and I thanked her from afar. I've never tried to take care of kids while having the stomach virus. Let's just hope that I don't have to.......

Oh, no! I'm glad I found your blog but sorry to hear that. Daniel went to England this fall and Emily got a stomach virus and shared it with me. Not fun at all. Call if you need help or someone to run to the store!

Oh no! I hate that you guys caught the bug. Ella Kate was sick all night Sunday night but so far no one else has caught it. Hopefully it will just be Anna! Let me know if you need anything!
