Sharing The Love (or germs)

Well, the sickness that started earlier in the week has now spread to my dad, my son, my niece and nephew. I guess this would be the down side of living a block away from your family and seeing each other 5 days a week. It looks like this little bug has about a 3 day waiting period before you start to see symptoms. So, I get to be paranoid for another 2 days. Woohoo!! We will go through a whole bottle of soap by Sunday :)
Unfortunately, my son started yesterday morning after spending the night at his friend, Andon's house (so sorry Jen. I'm sure cleaning up after someone else's kid was what you had planned for the morning.). The good side is that Jordan got his all done by 10:30 a.m. By then, he was actually mad at me for not giving him food because he was hungry. In fact, he went from room to room burying his head in pillows because he was pouting that I wouldn't give him anything to eat. I did start giving him very small amounts of food to make sure he was o.k. but that was never satisfactory. On the good side, he didn't throw up again the rest of the day and was running around like a mad man all afternoon. I guess he's fine.
So, if any of my other kids get sick, I hope they follow suit from Jordan, not Avery.

I am so glad Jordan was over it so soon! Andon hasn't shown any signs of being sick yet so we're probably good.
I'm happy the boys got to do a last sleep over! We actually had so much fun until the evening came with extra tired little boys! :)
Love you, Jen

Me and hubby are sick, I'm just waiting for the kids to get sick now. :o(

Don't you just hate denying them food like that. But the whining is worth it in the end. Hope you are all out of the woods soon.

Hi...I know this is probably random, but I've been lurking on your site the past couple of weeks learning how to use coupons better. You are so efficient!

I'm sorry your kids are all getting sick. My husband got the same thing a few months ago (I was38 week about paranoid!)Anyway...I hope they get over it soon.

I also have random question for you. Does Wal-Mart take coupons? Thanks for letting me ask on a post about your sick kiddos. I hope your weekend gets better and this all goes away! God Bless!

Oh, I can't imagine being 38 weeks and trying to avoid the flu!! Thankfully, it looks like we might be in the clear now (no else showing symptoms yet).

As far as Wal-Mart, they most definitely do accept coupons. They rarely have bogo deals, which is why I like to shop the conventional grocery stores. But, there are some things that you can get practically free at Wal-Mart with the right coupon.

Feel free to ask questions any time.
