Ick in Sick..

I guess I could just leave you with that lovely blog title, couldn't I?

My last post showed you Princess Mini-Me all snuggled in doing her history work. A Lovely moment, I'm sure. It went down hill from there.

I started to feel seriously ill. I thought it was food poisoning. I had a back pain from sleeping wrong saturday night. And the house kept getting colder and colder. I finally called The Professor to come home. It was sleeting and raining at that point.

He came to my rescue.

He discovered that the pilot light was out on the heater and rectified the situation. Meanwhile, I stayed snuggled in my blankets on the couch. I couldn't even tolerate the thought of food. The Professor cooked.

I fell asleep on the couch.

The next day, the roads were nasty. Sleet covered in icy rain was all over the news. We didn't have it as bad as some - but enough that the Professor stayed home to take care of me. I stayed in bed all day. The Professor taught Mini-Me and G-man their lessons for the day. I felt crummy.

The professor had to go to work on Wednesday. In the middle of the night, J-man tossed his cookies all over his blankets. The Professor tackled the bedding and I tackled the kid. He was actually rather jolly for needing a sponge bath at 3:30 am.

I won't even mention the dog p**p incident with the dog. Mini-me earned all sorts of kudos that day. 100 times over.

Thursday, the professor was called out suddenly for a site visit. Thursday night, G-man tossed his brownies over the side of the top bunk. I don't think that stain will ever come out. I totally had to repent the next morning.

Friday night, the professor came home from his trip. He was so tired from driving that I sent him to bed. Before Long I heard him in the bathroom being sick.

ick. I'm really glad he didn't get sick on the way home. really. REALLY glad.

That night, about 10:30, Mini-Me joined him in the "being sick" part of life. We ended up camping out in the living room. She kept crying and apologizing for being sick. I'd feel sorry for her - and then she'd use the word "revolting" and I'd have to work really hard not to laugh. It was an interesting night.

In the midst of this, Mini-e was sick, too, but hers was a one-time up-chuck and then an avoidance of food. Even as weird as it sounds, I'm glad that was the extent of her "sick".

There were some odd bright spots in the week. Such as, the time when:

G-man told me I smelled good after I took a shower. The only soap I had in the house for me was - "Old Spice". *snort* left over from when we were expecting a guest.

or when --

Mini-me worked her tail off making a 2 foot snow/sleet/ice man. She used gummies as the face and such...She was quite proud of it. It was brutally killed by siblings who were shocked to wake up from their naps to find him in the back yard. I guess they thought he was going to invade.

and then ...

G-man decided to put on a hat, while he was sick, because it matched his shirt.
It's rather endearing that he'd be so sick but willing to accessorize. It's never a bad time for style.

That's pretty much our week in ick.
I must say, I'm glad it's over.
I think I need a nap.

From the title, I thought the fish were doomed!

(We're still on fishy death-watch, but the River Styx is in sight.)

Glad you're all feeling better! I hope you get some peaceful slumber :)

"I don't think that stain will ever come out. I totally had to repent the next morning."

*Chuckle* You're leaving the details to our imagination, I take it.

Wishing you the best of health this week, and hoping it doesn't come over this way. (Hope my anti-virus is up to date. :-)

Oh, um, I made it sound like I was hoping the "best of health" does not come over my way. That isn't exactly what I meant to say.

Awww! I'm sorry you've all been sick. I always fear the stomach bug. We've had it around here once or twice.

How appropriate that I'm doing illness in the comics this week! I must be in your head!

Peace and Laughter,

Oh my! Sounds absolutely dreadful. Who do you think you are,...ME? :D

And the Old Spice cracked me up. Nothing says shim like a woman bathed up in Old Spice. Too funny.

CrossView said...

Oh my! Sounds like so much (not) fun! Hope all are better soon - now would be even better! ;o)

ha- I am sitting here with chills and a plugged face, thanking God that I don't have what you guys had!!! What a week- but yet, you found the humour in it! The part about you having to repent cracked me up too! Hope you are ALL well recovered, or at least mostly on your way there!!!

Glad you are all feeling better. That's no fun when everyone gets it at the same time. Well, it's never any fun . . . We've been passing around sinus/upper respiratory stuff. This week, it's my turn. Ugh!

Ew. Sounds like the plague Lil Bunny Foo Foo and I had before Christmas.

I absolutely HATE those bugs that go through the whole family! I hope they were no more than 24 hour ones for each of you.
We had the same thing happen with Blake once, when the rest of us had all been wrung inside out, and he gave just one delicate little heave and that was it. We appreciate it when the youngest escape the brunt.
Take it easy the rest of the week,

I have always said that there is nothing like another family's barf story to make you more grateful for your current situation. You guys should really invest in some wide mouth trash cans....
