Well, since nobody is going on about swine flu anymore, it must not be that ;D Winter fever...

The family has the flu.
My family.
Except for Superman, who never gets sick, no surprise there ;)

Lyon got it first:

103+ degree fever.
Runny nose.
Horrible sounding cough.

Lyon set up camp on the couch.
Though he has had a few moments where I thought he was getting better,
 he keeps ending up back on the couch with a fever.
He kept me up all night the other night.
He was half asleep, and mumbling random phrases.
I could hardly understand a word he said.
I'll admit I was worried, but it was still funny.

Bear was next, waking up Monday morning with:

103+ degree fever.
Runny nose.
Horrible sounding cough.

He seems to have more energy due to this illness.
He talks a thousand miles a minute.
Runs circles around me.
Has made a million and one art pieces.
And all I can think is, what the heck!?

Fenix woke-up Monday morning just like Bear:

103+ degree fever.
Runny nose.
Horrible sounding cough.

She hasn't reacted to being sick at all.
I wouldn't even be able to tell if I hadn't taken her temperature.
The cough gives her away too.
But still, she carries on.
She plays, she whines, she gets into markers and draws on her face.
She has all together way to much energy.

Then there is me:
Basically I have a 103+ degree fever.
And I feel like someone beat the crap out of me.
I want to set up camp on the couch.
Sigh, but I'm the mom, I can't do that.

Because there'd be no one else to make food, wipe noses, fetch blankets, and go crazy.
This is one adventure that Superman can't rescue me from.

I keep thinking we'll get better.
We really should be better by now!!!
It has been several days too long.
I have things to do and places to go and if we are sick I can't do anything!!!
It's a terrible tragedy ;D

Yeah, when I'm sick I really wish I could be a kid again and lay on the couch all day watching t.v. and have my mom take care of me. It kinda stinks being the mom now and having to take care of everyone no matter how crappy you feel.
