Now this is not normally blogworthy, but today it is. We’ve been battling either a prolonged stomach virus, or two viruses back-to-back for about 3 weeks. I will spare you all the details, but it has been unpleasant for all involved. I’m tired of all the extra cleaning that goes along with a stomach virus, the sleep deprived nights as feverish children can’t sleep and the way the house totally falls apart when I’m sick. But mostly I’m tired of not eating.
I completely lost my appetite last Friday as the virus hit me full force. Since then I’ve eaten an egg or some crackers every day, but that’s about it. I drank a lot of V8 Fusion to keep from getting light headed, too. Pumpkin Girl got back to normal a couple of days ago, and Bip is almost there. Boo and Philip escaped completely, so I’m the last one on the mend.
My appetite returned today and I ate three meals! Granted, that only means 2 pieces of bacon, a boiled egg and most of a homemade burrito, but it’s an improvement over yesterday’s chicken strip.
Tomorrow I’m hoping to work up to a salad for lunch.
