the plague, it burns

The sun came out, the birds were tweet, tweet tweeting and my girl? The one who hoped to go back to school Thursday?

She began puking in the wee hours of morning, feverish and sad.

We created a nest at the end of my bed, and Aunt Lori delivered 7-Up, curbside, while I unsuccessfully explained to Zack why we couldn't have a play date - despite the sunshine, despite the half-day. He was personally offended, missing his built-in playmate.

(Paint him dim.)

I stood in my backyard, the sun on my face, sick with cabin/spring fever; holding out for March.

Ugh - it seems to be a bad week, no matter what side of the continent you are on.
Sorry to hear about the vomiting. That is the worst.
Fingers crossed you Zack and Greg don't get it...

March - in like a lion, out like a lamb? Please?

Take care!

So sorry! I stopped here just to say I hope she feels better. I hate it when my little ones are sick.

This is day six of our forced entrapment in this house. I'm going batty, ever so slowly.

February, be done!

I think we are all aching for spring. Just hold it together a little longer...

What a poignant experience. So close to Spring...tasting it...but not quite there.

Mrs. G. said...

Tomorrow it is March. May it bring sunshine and good health.

You can escape to our house. Everyone has already had the ick and Lexi has barfed here before too.

My oldest kid spent all DAY barfing, too! They have so much in common!

It is just bad,bad, bad everywhere...all winter. I am so sorry. Hope the cozy nest on your bed did the trick and that she is feeling better.
