The kids and I had a spectacular stomach virus this weekend. Every person in the family came down with it in rapid succession. Fortunately I got it first, and fortunately it was on a Saturday, so the kids were able to take care of the dogs for me while I lay in bed . Like a lot of stomach bugs, the worst of it didn't last long. Even so, I was not really ready to get out of bed and start taking care of kids, but by the next day everyone was sick, so I had no choice. It wasn't until yesterday afternoon that I really felt decent again.
