The battle of the bugs!

Our house was not spared from the dastardly (is that a word?) stomach bug that is "going around." By the way, every virus goes around. . .that's what viruses do. It's their job. If they stood in one spot they wouldn't even be known about. Now that we have that out of the way. .

I AM NOT GOING TO GET IT! Either is Carter. We've decided that we're not going to submit to it. Not gonna do it! Parker had it one night. Spencer had it a couple nights later. Scott got it the night after that. Guess who was going to die when he had it??? You guessed it, the oldest child, my 31 (almost 32) year old! I clearly recall him saying to me while he dry heaved into the porcelain god, "I think I need a doctor." HA! What is a doctor going to do for you? Not a whole heck of a lot they can do for you when you have that crud. I told him that all they'd do is stick an IV in him (which he hates) and hydrate him. Possibly, they would even wait to do that & instead try compazine rectally. THAT changed his mind pretty quickly! Tee hee, I'm so mean.

Anyway, I can assure you that he survived & will continue to survive. I can also assure you that if the tables were turned & it were me that was ill - HE would not stay home from work to take care of me. NOPE! He'd go to work, send the kids to daycare & probably call his mother over to take care of me. Which, by the way, would really tick me off. Don't get me wrong, my mother in law is great! But the last person you really want taking care of you when you feel miserable is your MIL! (OK, maybe you wouldn't want that really hot - oh forget it.)

Anyway, he's at work today & barely hanging on.


The job thing isn't confirmed yet. This bothers me as they know the buy out is a must & they need to fill the spot. Am I confusing you yet? I forget what I blogged about this issue. I work for a staffing agency. I work through said agency at Aurora Baycare (ABMC). Labor & Delivery has a .9 day 12 hour shift available to which I applied. ABMC has to buy out my contract with the agency before I can be hired. I hate waiting.

Baby is awake! Time to cater to his wishes:)
