At Bible class yesterday, people kept asking how our family was doing. At first it confused me, but then I started to hear about all the different people who were sick. Apparently there's some flu-thing going around, and I was clueless as to the depth and extent of it.

Maggie mentioned a sore throat on Wednesday night. But it turned out that she barely ate yesterday, and flopped around with no energy and no brightness in her eyes all day. As I was lying in bed last night, Gary kept sneezing and reaching for a hankie, while somebody in the boys' room was barking.

Paul's due home today for spring break. When he was home for Christmas, people were not exactly healthy. That time, he was the one who infected us. I'm afraid we're going to return the favor this week. Bummers.

  1. Sunday was the Lutheran Schools Week kickoff, so the kids sang in church. Church was packed to the gills, of course. There was sooooo much coughing, hacking, sneezing, and sniffling; there we were, all of us closed up in the building together, sitting prey for the nasties. Can't stay home when the kiddos are singing, dontchya know, even if you rarely attend otherwise!

    Yup, I'm sick.
