The chills


Today has been a sick day.  The whole day we did nothing but lay on the couch and watch dust accumulate on our furniture (side note: does anyone else think it is a little bit disgusting that dust is basically dead skin cells?).

Four out of five of us had a low grade fever.  One of us has so far been spared – my Awesome Husband of course.  Three out of the five had nasty noses.  Two of the five wanted to be cuddled.  Three of them fevered it out and one of us gave into the aches of the fever and took tylenol – I am a wimp when it comes to the aches of a fever (plus I am the mom and have to take care of the little people).

By the end of the day I gave up on kleenex and just settled for a community snot rag.  I did enjoy the time spent on the couch reading a good book and letting my kids rot their brains with have their fill of Dragon Tales.  And of course, we counted down the seconds until daddy would grace us with our presence and feel sorry for us sickies.

All in all, it was a good day despite this minor virus we have encountered.
