I'm Done

I have been sick.  So sick.

Flu Sick!

You got the picture.  Now add a cold to it.  Yep.  That about sums it all up.

And then when I was feeling better, and I use that term very loosely, Miss Boo got the Flu Bug.  And when I say Flu, I mean the stomach flu.  No throwing up, but you know what I mean.  Very hard on her little tummy.  She has been home for two days and although she might have been able to go to school, I kept her home because she assured me her stomach didn't feel well.  It turned out to be a good thing and then her brother came home from school.

I always have mixed feelings.  I am so excited they will have each other to play with, but it always leads to screaming, crying and fighting.  I don't have the energy for it today.  The flu zapped me of all my energy.  It's ironic that I woke up mucus free for a change in a week, but can't hardly move.

So, I set up the tent in the Dude's room and let them have at it.
What you can't see is that she is torturing him.
They played in the tent or I should say argued for 15 minutes and then came in to bug me.
Miss Boo lost two more teeth on top last week.
The kids are now downstairs playing video games and because I just want to lay down, I am going to allow it for as long as they want.

I am in my pj's and not sure why I am posting, but I needed to change my blog.  It has to be boring.  

Sorry this isn't interesting, just wanted to let you know I am still alive.  As I told Mr. Finn this morning, I don't feel like death anymore, just death warmed over.  lol

He will be back in another week.  Glad he didn't have to suffer the wrath of the flu, but with what he is faced with at work, I think he might have chosen the flu.

Gosh Robin. You've destroyed the myth that moms don't get sick. ;)
Hope you feel better soon. Remember all that torturing is only because they love each other so much. heh heh

What my children are not perfect Angels, surely this can't be true. The flu must have made you delirious!

I'm so sorry you have been sick...that sounds miserable. At least you always seem to get really darling pictures out of it. The cartoon is most descriptive too!
