My Family Is Sick, It Must Be a Holiday

I thought that we had had the worst of the sick when the kids had croup over Thanksgiving. I thought that I had paid my dues and we were free and clear for at least a week. I was wrong. We caught the family flu that is going around the Deringtons. That's what I get for hanging out with family I guess.

So, we are on day five of awfulness. It is coughs and body aches and fevers and drippy noses and it sounds like a cold... but it is so much worse, it is like a cold from hell. Oh yeah, I said it and I'm not even sorry. The doctor tells me that Nicole and Dano have brochitis while Matt and I have been diagnosed with the flu virus. Sounds all the same to me. Sounds like I am going to in bed for a week is what it sounds like.

But, in an attempt to be positive; if we are sick this week, there is no way we can catch something new during Christmas itself! So, hopefully, we will be healthy for Christmas. Unlike last year where the kids had croup and I had bronchitis the whole week of Christmas and I missed all the fun activities with the Deringtons.

How are Matt and I suppose to alternate families for the holidays if we keep getting sick and missing the holidays all together? Stupid sick.

Do you mean all the fun festivities of the Deringtons and Chipmans?

This has been the worst illness. At least when you have a puking sickness, it usually only lasts one or two days, but this thing lasts FOREVER!!!!
