The flu has hit our house! My daughter woke up sick last night and she's been feeling crummy all day today. I'm not sure how I'm going to avoid it since I've been taking care of her but can you all cross your fingers that I don't get this bug!! I've heard of tons of people around my area being sick (my Grandma was last week so I'm pretty sure that's how we got it in our house). Anyone else or their children had the flu this year?? It's evil!!!

Thank you Quantum_Leap for my fabulous signature!!!

We had a horrid stomach flu going around here for a 2 month spread. Even the principal at ds's school ended up with it! I was maybe going on 6 weeks the week my kids were home sick with it and was thanking god that somehow it skipped me this time!

I actually got the flu from my husband. He was battling it for the last two days and I was trying to avoid it by making him sleep on the couch. In spite of this, I woke up this morning with the headache from hell. I really didn't want to take any medications but I feel like my head is going to explode so I've been taking Tylenol (my midwife and the pharmacist said that it was safe). The worst part is that every time I get up, I get dizzy from both the pain of the headache AND the m/s. I threw up whatever lunch I had so I hope dinner will be more of a success.

My husband feels really bad about it though, so he's been taking good care of me.

Ugh, that sucks!! It is all over this area too. None of my students have had it yet, and neither has anybody in my family, but I know there are kids at my school that have had it. Praying that it skips you!!

I have a very bad cold, it feels boarderline flu but I have had the flu before. The flu keeps you in bed, gives you a high fever and the shivers and you cant move for love not money so I dont have the flu.

I just hope this cold passes soon.

I hope you all get better soon and have a lovely winter. xxx
