I HATE BEING SICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BLECK...

I don't have time to be sick... But, I have been puking since Sunday morning. Micah got sick Saturday night after coming home from Chicago. Luca was sick with it last week, and hopefully it does not spread any more. Ryan said that his stomach was feeling kinda rumbly this morning, so I am praying that he does not get it too... Hopefully Hannah and Jonas miss this batch too... I have done so much laundry, scrubbing, and spraying of Lysol!!! I would open up all of my windows, except it is like 20 something outside right now. Welcome to the wonderful germ cycle of winter in the North!!!

I am mad that I am sick. Doesn't God know that I don't have time for puking and sleeping for 24 hrs. straight??? :-) What REALLY makes me mad, is that I had to miss our annual Philharmonic Holiday Pops concert yesterday!!! We have been taking Hannah to it at Huntington University, where I teach, since she was 3. This was going to be Micah's first year and they have both been talking about this for weeks... I love the Fort Wayne Philharmonic, and I LOVE the Holiday Pops concert. Just hearing all of the instruments played to perfection, and all in unison, just gives me the chills!!! They always do great renditions of classic Christmas tunes, and it is just always gets me into the Christmas spirit.

I thought that if I drank some water and got a bath that I would feel better. Well...after I drank some water, I ended up puking it all up in the toilet. Hannah was in the bathroom, and she said, "Mom are you throwing up?" She thinks it sounds so funny that when anyone pukes, she loves it and laughs... :-) I said, "yes, Please call for daddy, I need some help." So humiliating!!!! One thing that is funny...our bathroom is so small, that I did not even have to get out of the bathtub to barf in the toilet...

So, I did not end up going to the concert...Ryan took the kids and they had a blast... I love that they love this type of music, even at such a young age! Ryan said that an older gentleman was sitting behind them and after the concert (2 hours long with an intermission), and after it was over he told Ryan that he was very impressed at how are kids behaved through the performance. That says a lot to me, especially coming from an older generation!!! So, we must be doing something right??? :-)

Ryan stayed home this morning to get the kids off to school. Luca is napping and Jonas is down too. Man, just writing this is making me tired! How in the world can I be tired after sleeping so much???

I am too tired to proof read, so hopefully it is not too bad... :-)

I will upload pics from Chicago soon...

Sorry you missed the concert. We all had the bug last weekend, and we had to miss our annual trip to the mountains to cut our tree down. I hate having to miss tradition! Especially due to the stomach bug, no fun.

Bec...I hate to say it, but I laughed out loud on the part where Hannah asked if you were puking in the tub. I love how her mind works and that she thinks that kind of stuff is hilarous. :)
I hope you are all feeling better now...Emily was sick about a week and a half ago and Ethan is coming down with it now. It's so not fun. But I'm with you...there's no time to be sick now! Get Better Quickly!!

I have been sick- I am so sorry your sick- I totally feel your pain. I am going on day 8- (stomach and bronchitis)...
That is terrible about the puking but I have to admit that I laughed about the being able to sit in the tub and puke in the toilet. I was thinking at least you didn't have to get out of the warm bath!
I hope that you get better soon, or already better because this is a bad time of year for Mama to be sick!
Hugs
