Quarantined

March 9, 2012

The past seven days have been anything but fun for this family......
We have had something terrible going through our house and it has knocked us down one by one.
It started last Friday night when I felt like I was getting a terrible sore throat. I ended up in bed through Monday. That night, we all woke up to the sounds of poor Sarah getting sick. By Tuesday night it hit my husband, and by Wednesday night, the flu hit Nick and me too.
Little Reags is still standing.... she has not come down with it yet, but we are waiting because whatever it is, it seems to be highly contagious.

Needless to say, I am sick and tired....of being sick and tired. I was in tears yesterday because I just cannot take anymore of this. It has been the worst winter we have ever experienced in terms of illness and germs. Hoping to get every window in this house open this weekend so that we can air it out and kiss these germs goodbye once and for all.

I wish I had something more exciting to share today, but I do not. I have not even picked up my camera in 12 days. We are still quarantined here at home in our PJs with Gatorade, Ginger-ale, Chicken Soup, and Saltines. Hoping the end of this madness is very near and we can actually enjoy our weekend.

Feel free to link your Favorite Friday post below, unfortunately, I will be sitting this one out:(

oh dear so sorry Lisa to hear you have all been sick.

We are done with something too but it doesn't sound near as drastic as your house!

I think it's this funny winter we have had.

Hope the weekend find you all a little better.

Lisa,
Sorry to hear that. It is something going around here also. My whole family went through it. Kids got sick. So were all their friends and their family. Whatever it is, I dislike it very much.

Hope you feel better soon. Spring is around the corner.

Take care,
Tina

Sorry you guys have been so sick! That happened to us on Christmas vacation on a ski trip. Every two days a different person got sick in our household. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

oh yuck hope you are all feeling better soon. Maya and i started on probiotics in December and knock on wood, Benjamin ended up on a nebulizer twice (10 months old) and now my husband just got walking pneumonia, but maya and I are still fine, I don't care if it helped or not or if its in my head I will take it, being sick is awful.

Mimi said...

Lisa, sorry to hear that, what a rough time for you all, and I'm sure it feels interminable.
You're great to even put up the link.
I can't get near doing a blog post the last few weeks, it's chaotic! but at least (fingers crossed) we haven't been sick.
Take care, m x

Oh Lisa! I am so sorry. I remember a few years ago in Virginia having a week or two like that and it did me in. I am so very sorry. It is hard. I really hope you all feel better very soon.

Tara said...

Oh Lisa, I'm so sorry that you've all been so sick this winter. I'm sad that you were sad enough to cry... I know that feeling... it's overwhelming when Mom is that sick! So much to do, so much life to live and when you're down and out it's the worst! And then to see your kids get sick on top of it; sorry. Hoping that you're all feeling better this weekend. Spring is almost here! Hang in there, tara

Jeanne said...
