Sick of Sick

We've had a bug going through our house. It started next door, but when celebrating Christmas with family, you tend share more than just gifts. I was the first one to get it. It was not fun! the dry heaving about killed me, but then it wasn't over, I fell asleep funny and tweaked my neck. even after a full day of a hot pad and one of those massager's, it was still killing. it got worse and traveled down under my shoulder blade and up into the head. I decided today to hit it hard; i took 4 Advil and it took the edge off for a good 4 hours! I almost felt normal. Kolette got it a day later. Poor thing was up till 4am. she seems to be doing great now. Nobody else has gotten it yet. Although I am wondering if Hannah won't. I hope not but with Kolette and her being glued at the hip...guess time will tell.
To top it off, we had a family wedding in Spokane. We had family come into town to stay. They were quite leery. Do you blame them? We've had fun though. The little girls and I stayed home, ordered in, watched a movie or two and did a puzzle.
The family is watching Man vs. Wild. It's a special one that shows all the stuff he's eaten to survive. GROSS! The boys love it! Imagine that...

Gonna be a bear

In this life I'm a woman. In my next life, I'd like to come back as a bear. When your a bear, you get to hibernate. You do nothing but sleep for 6 months. I could deal with that! Before you hibernate, you're supposed to eat yourself stupid. I could deal with that too! When your a girl bear, you birth your children (who are the size of walnuts) while you're sleeping and wake up to partially grown, cute, cuddly cubs. I could definitely deal with that! If your a mama bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat anyone who bothers your cubs. If your cubs get out of line, you swat them too. I could deal with that! If your a bear, your mate expects you to wake up growling. He expects that you will have hairy legs and excess body fat! Yup! Gonna be a bear!!
