What did you get for Mother's Day?

I got stomach flu. Are you jealous?

Last Friday DS got sick. By 11:3o a.m. I knew this time the sickness was different from the last time he had a bout of vomit and diarrhea. So I called the doctor. DS's white blood cell count was 22 (12 is considered high for a child) and off we were to the hospital.

At the hospital he tested positive for rotavirus. After an exhausting night I was able to bring him home. He was wore out, I was wore out.

We attempted to go to where we planned our vacation Sunday but only spent one night (oh yeah, lol, this past weekend was supposed to be the start of a vacation). We came back home Monday. Tuesday I spent the day on the couch and by Wednesday it was my turn. DH is starting to come down with it now.

Now I have today and Monday to get the paper done. Let's not forget that I'm still learning. I think I will be calling in some favors, lol.

And for whatever reason I was dreaming of going to drive buses. But I couldn't cause the pope was in town. Bizarre.

Just so this won't be a pictureless image, here is a shot of my toe up sock by the fire that DH built at the cabin.

Wearing wool socks and being next to a fire when it's 40 degrees out. Oh! It feels good!

I have since finished the sock. Inbetween trips to the loo and when I wasn't feeling like death warmed over. I will post a picture when I have finished the second sock. At the rate I'm going, that could be a while. I am thrilled I figured out the heel though. I think I messed up on the bind off though ... No biggie though. I will know it for the next pair of toe ups though.

When I was laying on the couch DH really stepped up and took care of both me and DS, and taking over household stuff. That's one of the many reasons I love him. I know not too many husbands would do that. I am very lucky when it comes to my guy. :-)
