The Sickness From Hades!

I just wanted to post a quick note to let you know why I have been gone for so long.

Last week Duke caught a little bug that involved a quick food exit from both ends.  It only lasted 24 hours and he didn't seem as upset about it as his mother who had to clean up after a few accidents.

A few days later Imp had the same symptoms, quick and dirty.  Feeling great myself, I thought the adults in the family were safe from this apparent childhood disease.

Well, unfortunately once again I was proved wrong.  My husband and I came down the the disease a few days later, and it was not some minor 24 hour bug.  It was a major life-disrupting virus that kept us down for a few days.  I won't go into any details other than the fact I spent too much time visiting my little white toilet friend...  At one point I called my mom, sobbing, and begged her to take the boys for a day.   Thank goodness my parents are in town.

Today I feel almost normal and I was able to turn on my computer and try to catch up.  I have a few goodies I want to post later this week, so please keep an eye on my blog.

Wow, it feels so nice to be able to drink and eat once again. Simple pleasures.


  1. Sounds like norovirus?

  2. oh man! its that time of year, I guess. so sorry for your whole fam! Glad youre getting back to normal!

  3. No fun for sure. We've missed you! Make sure you get your rest too. We'll be patient!! (or we'll at least try to be!!)

  4. Oh no...glad you are all feeling better though....

  5. so glad you are starting to feel better! I'll say a lil prayer for your family for a speedier recovery!

  6. It does sound like a norovirus! It was a nasty little bug for sure. And thank you everyone, we are all feeling so much better.

  7. Oh,I'm so very sorry! Glad that you are feeling better. But, I thought it was very funny that the ad that popped up in my RSS reader was for diapers and wipes... :-/

  8. I'm glad you're better! Take care, and be well!

  9. Oh, Honey... I'm so sorry! I've been attacked with those viruses and they really know the stuffing out of you... LITERALLY.
    Get better soon...

  10. oh dear. that sounds nasty.

    I just wanted to let you know that I've used your Polaroid action on a Scrapbooking LO that's going into an Australian magazine. I've given your blog address as the source of this wonderful action.

    happy to spread the word about your generous work.

    take care and thank you.
