By the stomach virus. So did Peter, and Colin, and Susie. All of us - at the same time. Throwing up. It is bad - really really bad. Colin just threw up on the rug that we just shampooed. What timing. I have not eaten anything all day - I don't dare. I'm freaking STARVING. I'm too afraid to even eat saltines. I have a cup of pedialyte that I have been sipping, I'm doing a sip every 5 minutes. I'm pretty sure I'm dehydrated. I have not had anything to drink since early this morning. I threw up this afternoon so hard that I pulled a muscle in my back. I think it's needless to say, but I did not run today. I'm hoping I feel better tomorrow. I'm SOOOOO hungry.
Oh and something i had not mentioned earlier. Our furnace is broken. It has been broken for 3 months, going on 4. First we were waiting for Trane to send us the replacement part. They got hit by the super storm and had no power for a few weeks. Then the machine that makes the part was broken. Then there was trouble with the delivery. Now the people installing it had scheduling conflicts so they couldn't come for the past week. I am really fed up. It's probably why we are all sick. Thankfully we have the wood burning insert in the living room - but the bedrooms get cold. It wasn't too bad until this past week when it started to get really cold at night. We had been putting a little space heater in each of the bedrooms an hour before bedtime and then turning it off when everyone went to bed. It's been so freaking cold this week so we had to drag the guess mattress into the living room and close all the doors. It gets pretty warm in here - it's pretty great. It only sucks when the fire goes out in the middle of the night! So far so good though. PRAY with all your praying strength - that they REALLY show up tomorrow as scheduled, they install the part and everything works. PLEASE. I can't take one more day of this.
Ok - baby girl is crying, little boy is whining, and hubby looks pissed off. I'd better get going. Have a great night - I hope NOBODY gets this hideous virus! -Monica
