What Day Is It?

I've just recovered from a vicious stomach bug, which attacked 3 of the 4 people in this house. I can honestly say I have never loved my husband (the only one spared from this horrifying virus - you'll see why in a moment) more than I do right now. He is my hero, my knight in shining armor, wielding his can of Lysol like a sword and slaying the invisible germs of death with ease.

Internet, I can do colds. I can do sore throats, stuffy heads, coughing, and sneezing. What I CANNOT do is puking. And OHHHH THE PUKING that happened in this house two nights ago. Oh, I'm sorry. Does the word "puke" make you uncomfortable? PUUUUUUKE.* At one point, I'm pretty sure I asked the Good Lord to take me home, and I'm almost sure I meant it. I wanted to die. I thought I was dying.

Every once in a while I would see a strange Avatar-like creature with a blue face and blue hands. I thought it could be an angel, only the angels I'd read about in the Bible weren't blue. Only after the fever broke did I realize it was my sweet husband wearing a blue medical mask and blue latex gloves on his hands, deftly avoiding the plague that was upon us. I married a smarty, Internet.

Today is the first day I'm actually able to get out of bed without feeling like I'm going to fall over, what with all the dehydration and lack of food and all. And it feels GLORIOUS. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the weather is lovely. I'm going to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air this weekend, and I hope you all can do the same.

Happy Weekend, everyone!

*I apologize for my rudeness. I blame the virus. I believe the adorable cat picture makes up for it? No? I'll try again next week.


  1. I hope you feel better soon! I hate stomach bugs. They are definitely the worst!

  2. Oh cool, your husband looked like an Avatar creature for a time.

    I need to get me some sick. ;)

    Here's to health!

  3. Oh.My.Goodness.Gravy!! I can not believe he thought to wear gloves & a mask!! That is so classic. :)

  4. Oh, Beth, I sure hope you feel better! What a good hubbie! God Bless.

  5. LOL! I love the way you relay stuff.

    Glad you're feeling better. Flu = ucky.

  6. Hope you're feeling up to par soon! And I hope your marvelous hubby doesn't catch it on the rebound :)

  7. Oh what a lousy way to spend a few days. There is really little worse than throwing up... and having others in the home doing the same. You poor things. I hope it's all gone and you're all feeling better now. What a greatg husband you have. I have one just like that too! What lucky girls we are.
    Best wishes
