Emerging from the fog

This flu has just totally wiped me out. I got it on Tuesday night and I really didn't feel at all human again until yesterday afternoon. Sheesh. All three kids cycled through their entire flu one by one in the time it took me to get over it. I'm still completely exhausted - probably from living on Saltine's and Gatorade for 4 straight days. I tried so hard to rally and feel better on Friday so that I could host Easter dinner at my house on Saturday as originally planned. And I suppose I could have pulled off the hosting part of it. It was the just the getting out from under 4 days of mess with no energy that was the problem. So Easter dinner was at Grant and Margaret's house (my in-laws) - which was fine. It was a great meal and we were glad to get some time visiting with Roger (Richard's bro) and Chelsea and fam. And I was even feeling well enough to eat some normal food.

The happy thought in all of this muck is that I realized why it probably took me so long to get over this flu... Can you guess?

We went to several different Easter events that I'll share pictures and details of with you tomorrow. I just don't have the energy to get the camera, hook it up, blah blah blah. But tomorow I declare that I will no longer use this as an excuse. This house IS going to get back into shape.

so sorry you have felt so sick. the pregnant idea didn't even cross my mind until it was mention by sewscute, but if that is the case, the flu on top of it is completely unjust. I hope you feel better in less time than 12 weeks!
