I flu the coop!

I have to confess this was the worst Valentines Day in the history of all the Valentines Days in my married life!  Or better yet in my whole life!  
I had all my favorite people with me Twice Blessed Mommy and her babies, HD's sister Regan, and of course HD.  Regan drove down from here station in KY she took a 9 hour drive to spend the long weekend with us, Friday was a wonderful day with our homeschool group I did however find out that Luke gets stage fright and the poor boy almost fainted while giving his report on Beowulf, the kids had a Valentines party and besides stage fright all was well.  We finished up packing my grandma's house at which time I started having some trouble breathing, now I totally attributed this to old paper and unwrapping dishes.
By Saturday morning I was sick, all out sick.  But I can't be held back we went out to dinner and to the movies all the while I sneezed and coughed and while at CVS buying NyQuil to insure that I would be able to sleep the worst thing ever happened, I thought I had to pass gas, I will leave it at that, because it was horrible and I am still trying to recover from the incident!  
I woke up sometime in the night with a fever and was shaking horrible, I stayed in bed until today, I had the flu and Sunday all three of our children came down with it too.  First Bo said he had a headache and he started crying a few minutes later he was throwing up, Daisy was behind him only by a few hours.  Luke has been coughing so hard he is throwing up too.  
So as I said originally this was the worst Valentines Day of my life!  Regan went back to Base yesterday and the poor girl is sick as a dog!  
The only good part of the whole thing is HD bought me the most beautiful Milk glass candy dish.  I had mentioned that I love milk glass and he went to my favorite antique store and bought me a piece, I love thoughtful gifts that don't die!

Yep, we have had it too. Fred started it and got us all sick! Sorry, to hear about your incident.

I have a friend with IBS and she ate hot dogs and drank a few beers and had to go so bad at a Red's Ballgame. Needless to say she had an accident in front of the very long line of people and her husband laughed at her all the way home!!

Well if that's not a good reason for a VDay re-do, I don't know what is! At least you all got it at the same time and you won't have to play the waiting game..if that's any consolation!
