If Mama gets sick... doesn't all necessarily 'fall apart'.

I know it's been days since I've posted so I guess it's time for an update. About the time Adam was recovering from being sick, I got hit. Thursday night I was up throughout the nights paying my respects to the porcelain god. I spent Friday and Saturday in bed resting. Thankfully, my husband is able to take sick days off from work on behalf of family members. I don't know how I would have managed caring for four children as sick as I was. Jim stayed home, diapers were changed, schoolwork was accomplished, Sprite, water, and Advil were delivered to my room, kids were fed, and basic order was maintained in our home. He really is Superman!

Saturday evening as I was starting to feel much better, Rebecca got it. She spent Sunday and Monday sleeping in the living room. I missed her company and her helpfulness a great deal. So far Micah, Jim, and Abby have been spared this nasty stomach virus. Hopefully we are done with it now and they won't be getting it at all.

Yesterday we had a light, easing-back-into-school-day. The big kids and I played two games of Clue. The little kids took their naps easily. I made a big huge pot of homemade chicken noodle soup on the woodstove. Both of the big kids commented on what a nice day it was. They were right.

This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
