Family Down

Is it just me, or are flu germs getting more and more potent every year?  Holy moly.  My suspected trifle overload turned out to be a combination of flu and bronchitis - which the whole family now has.  Ugh.  

Will kicked off the fun and games with a doctor's visit and three subsequent sick days on Wednesday, and I made the rookie mistake of giggling in my sleeve about his serious case of 'man flu'.  The wheel soon turned, though, because on Friday it was my turn: I woke up with an aching body and fire in my lungs.  Either Will was too decent to giggle, or he was  just feeling too miserable - but be assured that we were a sorry sight.

Fortunately there was time for a quick mom's night out to the movies, complements of Will, before things got too bad.

And on Saturday both kids joined in too - poor J Bear would just sit and moan and stare into oblivion feeling really, really miserable...  My heart!

Buuuuuut, after two doctor's visits and a cupboard full of medicine things are bound to get better, right...?

Have a great week, everyone!

P.S. I want to RUN!! 


  1. Oh no!! Hope you all are feeling better!

  2. :( That's awful! I hope you and your family feel better soon, Karien! Good news that it wasn't the trifle though hmm? ;).

    1. I'm still kind of on the fence on whether it's a good or a bad thing, Hailey, haha!! My dad is convinced that donuts cause flu, since he used to always buy donuts at the annual arts festival in our town, and every, single year he'd get flu after that... I'm kind of starting to feel the same way about custard, haha! Remember the custard cupcakes I had on my birthday? I got exactly the same flu/chest bug that we have now after I ate those. And now I have it again after eating the (custard-laden) trifle... I think I'll be skipping the custard in future, lol!! :)

  3. What a pity, I hope that you and your family feel better very soon. I can understand your feeling for no running and seeing your kids with the flu. All the best.

    1. Thanks, Stefano! We're SO ready to be healthy again...!


I love hearing from you!
