I must have been precient when I had the kids memorizing Shel Silverstein's "Sick" last week. I thought was just bringing up old childhood memories as they recited the words, "I cannot go to school today, said little Peggy Anne McKay..." but apparently I was actually summoning the sniffle fairies, who arrived Thanksgiving evening.

The four year and the two year old started with drippy noses first, and then JH began running a fever and snot, all after our friends arrived for dinner. By the time our guests left, I started feeling worn out and sick and my husband had lost his voice. We're still sniffly and drippy, and I wish I had a neti pot for every family member.

It could be worse though. Some of our friends had a stomach bug going around just before Thanksgiving and failed to mention it before showing up at our house for dinner last Thursday. We've been waiting and hoping and now I'm feeling fairly sure that we would have been throwing up by now, had we acquired that particular hostess gift.

Sending prayers for a speedy recovery for you all! (though personally I would be very thankful to be wanting neti pots rather than plastic basins)

Ew. I hope the puke fairy leaves you alone. We had the sniffles, then influenza, then a stomach bug all within the same month! I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired and having sick and tired kids. Whew! Good luck!
