Okay, who sent the gag gift?

Thank you all for the wonderful birthday wishes. I do have a bone to pick with someone though. Who sent me the gag gift? I was all set to go away for a relaxing birthday/mom weekend with my best friend and then I got it. The world's worse 40th birthday present.

I'm sick as a dog. A dog with fleas. A dog with rabies. And to top it off Mr. Schmitty is sick, as are T. and R. And we are not suffering from your run of the mill colds, our symptoms range from a horrific sore throat (me) to puking (Mr. Schmitty) to very high fevers (T. and R.). Plus the colds. R. and I have practically lost our voices and I ache from head to toe. Last night I had to get in a lukewarm tub with R. to cool her down. Her temperature was at 104.4. Very scary for me. Motrin helped and she thought it was so fun to take a bath with me, she was great. Needless to say she slept with me in my bed, kicking all night.

I can't believe W. is okay and hasn't come down with anything. I've been watching him like a hawk and trying to keep the kids away from each other. Not an easy feat. I hope he doesn't fall ill during the week and miss school.

So, anyway, thanks to the practical joker, this was not the way I wanted to spend the beginning of my fourth decade on the planet!

Oh, that's terrible! It's no fun to be sick on your birthday. Hope W avoids it and the rest of you get well soon.

I always see sickness as a chance to avoid my kids. Sorry you didn't like my gift.

Maria said...

Ah. I hate being sick. Because even when you are sick, you still have to be the one who takes care of the sick children.

On days like that, you just pine for Mary Poppins...

Feel better soon...

On no! Well, when everyone is better, this will give you even more reason to celebrate it big. Hope you have a wonderful 4th decade! Make it the best ever. Lucky W. Hope he makes it w/o catching something from someone.
