Yesterday evening I was cleaning off the microwave. There were about six bottles of medicine on it.....ibuprofen, Tylenol, cough syrup, gas relief stuff for Joel, and a few more things. I was so excited to make my kitchen look clean again. Those bottles have been there since the last time we were sick in January. As I was putting these bottles away, I had a fleeting thought.....watch someone is going to get sick now! I never expected to have TWO people sick within 10 hours!

  1. Jeff came home from his date with Emily last night, about an hour after I moved the medicines, and announced that he was going to be taking today as a sick day! He has a sore throat, cough and an upset stomach.
  2. Joel woke us all up at 5:50 this morning gagging and choking. He settled down quite quickly so I wasn't sure that he was sick. Well at 8:00 this morning, he let us KNOW that he IS sick. I will spare you the details, but he has the stomach flu.

I have learned my lesson. I will leave well enough alone next time and just live with the clutter on the microwave!!! (HA HA) I hope that you are all doing better at your house, then we are doing at ours!

On a totally different note, Jeff bought a pencil sharpener for the kids last night. I asked him to buy one to replace the three that we have lost and can't seem to find. I opened the sharpener last night and Jeff sharpened some pencils for school today. The children got right to school and I started cleaning. I found the first sharpener in the fruit bowl. I found the next one between the toaster oven and a huge stack of papers. Yes, I did find the third one soon after. It was hiding behind the kindling box. I promise you, we have been looking for these sharpeners for over a week now. I really wasn't even looking for them when I found them. I was just cleaning. So what was it that made these sharpeners be found? Was it that we just bought a new one or was it that I wasn't looking for them anymore?

PS- I found one more sharpener! We didn't have any yesterday, now we have 5!!!

Now each child will have a sharpner to keep track of, and see who is the last one to keep their's.
Your package went out yesterday, through the mail. I think your weather will determine when you will receive it.
Hope your bug doesn't get to everyone.
