It's after 1:00 pm.

I have been laying on the couch most of the day.

Caleb is still in his Buzz Lightyear pajamas.

Sarah is wearing nothing but underwear.

Gabriel has a diaper and a t-shirt on his little body (last I checked).

Caleb fixed everyone breakfast (Eggos) and fixed everyone lunch (fish sticks).

He had to do his school work independently. He brought me my teacher book, and from the couch I told him which pages to complete. I told him when he was finished, I would get up and check them. After he was done, I heard him whisper to himself, "I don't want to make mommy get up," so he brought his book to me. What a sweetie.

Around noon I asked Caleb to find Gabriel's pacifier and tell him to go lay down in his bed. Unbelievably, this worked. Gabriel fell asleep in his bed, just as Caleb instructed him to do.

I ache all over, especially in my neck and back.

I have a fever of 101.

One minute I'm so hot I want to take off most/all of my clothes and lay down in a freezer. The next minute I'm so cold I put on my sweatshirt, sweatpants, and shiver.

Here's to getting better soon.

Pretty sure kids can survive on Eggos and fish sticks for at least a few days, though, right?

Better get a bell for Josh so when he gets home he can wait on you. Let me start texting him and telling him to be prepared that you are going to run him through the ringer

Get better soon.

Hurting in your neck an back are signs of bacterial meningitis which can be deadly if not treated immediately. My 3 year old nephew died within 23 hours of getting rushed to the hospital, his mom just thought he had a cold.

Hope you feel better soon!

Remember when all of us got food poisoning but Sonja..we stayed in the down stairs and i put peanut butter, a knife, and bread for Sonja..she was in heaven...hardly remember anything else..but also remember..that was the blessing. Dr. Felts said if Sonja, as little as she was, would have eaten that food she would have died from this food glad my mom kept her that one night for softball!! God is Good!!

I'm in the same boat :( Hope you're feeling better! It's not fair when mommy is sick. It just shouldn't be allowed! Here's to hoping you feel better already!
