After 3 weeks of dealing with sick kids, I guess it was inevitable that Kevin and I would end up sick. Grace started getting sick Monday night around 10:00. Picture Kevin and I trying to clean it up in the dark while three other girls slept. We had the hall light on; we even used a flashlight. Oh, that worked well (imagine sarcasm.) I eventually gave up and just turned the light on. No one stirred. So I cleaned up the best I could.
This was the best round of Barffest yet. I started getting sick around midnight or so. It was miserable. It is so hard dealing with 5 kids when they are sick. It is even harder having 5 small kids who feel fine when you are sick. Both Kevin and I were miserable. I felt so badly because I just couldn't function. Besides feeling sick, I had a migraine. Not a good combination. So Kevin was pretty much on his own with the crew. Grace spent most of the day in bed. Olivia was a huge help. She made it possible for Kevin to survive the day. (Because it was a snow day, all 5 were home.)
The kids all seem 100%. Kevin and I are not yet. I still have a sour stomach and lots of body aches. I know Kevin is really tired, and he's feeling behind because he started a class this week.
Hopefully this is the end of it. I question if my sanity could handle anymore of Barffest!!!!!!
