The Plague

It’s official. The plague has swept through our house.

First, Alex was sick for about two weeks. The first few days of the illness included no sleep, constant nose drainage, lots of coughing, and perpetual clinginess. After that he was only mildly clingy and had a nose that wouldn’t stop running.

Next, Zach got ill. He had a fever, a bad cough, and couldn’t breath because of all of the mucous. He was so bad he even had to stay home from work.

Then it hit me. I woke up yesterday feeling like I had an antelope in my throat. The antelope was clearly angering the bird that had appeared the night before. Those bird feathers tickle like crazy, and the antelope just made the bird claustrophobic with his big antlers stabbing into my throat.

Today is slightly better. I have cookies to make for the cookie swap on Saturday, so I must be better in order to do that. I will not miss out on the awesomeness that is the Burgh Moms and what I’m sure will be amazing cookies. Not. Gonna. Happen.

Send angry notes to the antelope and bird, please. Scare them out of my throat.

  1. Feel better soon – looking forward to meeting you.

    Plagues suck.

    Plagues should be against the law.

    Along with rainy, beautiful sunny gorgeous Monday’s after a rainy, miserable weekend (ONLY exception being on Holiday Monday’s).

    See, if I were elected president, these are the laws I would pass as soon as I was in office.

  2. Yup, I totally know how you feel. My little girl has been sick since Sunday night. Same symptoms as you and your family. The hubby got sick next and now I’m coming down with something. Uggg!! It figures. I’m having a little get together this weekend. I’m determined to get better soon. I hope you and your family get better soon too. Take care my friend.
