The Plague

Hola, readers (if I even still have any due to the lack of posts lately)!  Just checking in to report that the Baums are still alive.

We were attacked by what I like to call "the plague" this week, and it was far from pleasant.  It's my fault, really, because just last week I was telling someone how glad I was that Lilly hadn't gotten a throw-up virus yet.  I guess my knocking on wood when I said it was pointless, because the virus from h-e-double-hockey-sticks attacked my house this week.

The crazy thing is that L never even acted like she really felt bad.  She never ran a fever, and there were really never any signs...other than the barfing (TMI alert...there was also some diarrhea, and it was also not pleasant).  And there was a LOT of barfing.  But I guess I really can't even complain about that, because L was a total trooper...she never even cried.  She would be minding her business and playing or doing whatever she does, pause for a quick barf break, then go back to doing whatever it was that she was doing.  The whole thing made me feel like a huge wimp,  because I know I would have been laid up in the bed miserable.  I felt so bad for poor little Lilly bean, she couldn't even take a sip of water without it coming back up.  

Did I mention that the plague is HIGHLY contagious?  Lilly and Callie both had it (not sure who gave it to whom, but they were both pitiful!).  Stephanie came to my house for literally no more than five minutes earlier this week to borrow a blanket and she got it (I have apologized profusely, I feel so bad!).  Dan got it, too.  I have never seen him as sick as he was.  I (miraculously) managed to escape it (knocking on wood times a million), but I am here to tell you that taking care of TWO sick babies while doing at least 25 loads of laundry and dishes and trying to sanitize the whole house is exhausting.  

Everyone is much better now, thankfully, and we made the trek to Charlotte last night to spend Easter with my family.  Still lots to catch up on, but now I'm off to enjoy the weekend.  First up: mani/pedis with my Mom and sisters.

Happy Good Friday to all!
