Murphy Loves Me...

Five days to go before the movers get here. First my daughter, then my husband, last night Teen Boy... Yep. They all came down with a horrid 24 hour flu bug. Stomach flu.

I've been avoiding them and taking my vitamins - someone has to keep the ball rolling.

Usually mom's ignore the signs of illness, especially if we get distracted, busy with other things. Take care of yourself!

Jaime said...

definitely steer clear of them. take care of yourself

Michele said...

Oh no! Stay clear of the family. Mamas can't be sick when there is work to be done.

Sprite's Keeper said...

Make sure they show you proof of temperatures. Hurling or not, anything below fever can still pack a box! Good luck with the move!

Kristan said...

oh geez! yeah, definitely vitamin-up (i don't care that a lot of it passes through you, i FIRMLY believe it helps) and try to get rest.

LOL to sprite's keeper, though. oh man, you're a tough one, hahahahaha!

Brian Miller said...

yikes. murphy is not a good friend.

Pastor Sharon said...

Oh that is a nasty bug! Stay clear of the bug!

Bernie said...

Geez, you surely have your hands full. I don't know what to say because it seems vitamins work for some, and rest is impossible in this situation. Maybe try self-hynosis and your body will listen---Iwillnotgetsick--Iwillnotgetsick--Iwillnotgetsick

When it rains, it pours..
Sorry to hear about the flu hitting your family, and before a move, too(which can wipe you out, anyway--I hate moving, myself)! Stay strong and healthy, if you can.

Jan said...

Oh, I am keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn't hit you.

As for Murphy, he's got one helluva long reach. Today was supposed to be our moving day - moving all of our office furniture from the old office to the new office. We have a U-Haul reserved. We've got four strapping college football players to do the heavy stuff reserved. We have a dumpster reserved.

We also have about 15 inches of snow on the ground, with another 3 - 6 inches predicted before it stops.

Of course you're not going to get it- until after the move honey! You're the Mom.... we can't collapse until after the big events. Best to you!

My name is PJ. said...

YIKES! I'm so sorry you guys got hit now, of all times!

Take care not to drop from exhaustion.

Christy said...

Oh no! Hope you stay healthy and good luck with the movers!

Irish Gumbo said...

That Murphy, he's dependable if nothing else.

Sanitize and try not to breathe. Much. Good luck with avoiding the Bug!

otin said...

Always the way! You will get it after they are all healthy again!

Anna See said...

Ick! Here's hoping you are still standing today.

idgtm said...

Iit's always something, isn't it.

Hope they're on the mend.

TechnoBabe said...

You sound like you are so focused. No bug would be allowed close to you at this time anyway, you are way too busy.

blueviolet said...

Why does it happen like this??? I'm sorry!

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

Oh, no...fingers crossed here!

Jeanne said...

That should make it easier to abandon the old place!

gretchen said...

Be careful! Take every precaution!

This so sounds like something that would happen in my life. The last time we moved, my husband ended up with kidney stones at 5 in the morning, when the movers were showing up at 7! AND I had a 14 month old!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Yerp, moms are never allowed to be sick! Here's a bottle of cootie spray for ya: [_]~~~~

BLACK & GOLD SUPA BOWL - WHO DAT?!

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Oh NO, Pseudo. Isn't that always the way! Sending you hugs and antibiotic thoughts. :-)

ds said...

ARGH! It's always something, isn't it? Here's hoping that you stay well, that your family recovers quickly, and the move is smooth. Hang in there!

Duchess said...

Never mind the vitamins, wash your hands! (and then wash them again)

And try not to breathe.
