After a wonderful Christmas, the sniffles started, then the headache, and then the all out chills and body aches. Oh yes, while we were having a blizzard outside, a storm was brewing inside the house too. My little boy started with a bad cold; then, my husband complained of flu like symptoms, and now I have the flu. So, the three of us for the past few days have been shut inside our germ infested house wallowing in self pity.
To be honest, we have a lot to be thankful for...neither my husband nor I have to go to work this week. It's just that we feel tired, miserable, lazy, and overall, beat-up. My poor little boy, proclaiming "Outside! Outside!" every few minutes is wrestling with cabin fever, while I'm wrestling with a dirty, disorganized house that needs some desperate TLC. For now, my only hope is that this bug leaves our systems soon so that we can begin picking up the left over pieces of 2010 and start the New Year with a brand new, clean, organized slate.
