Icky

I've spent the last 3 hours laying in bed trying to keep down Sprite and Saltines.

The 8 hours before that were spent in close proximity to the toilet.

Paige is lying next to me watching her 5th straight half-hour of Thomas/Little Einsteins/Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

I've managed to make it to the kitchen to get Paige's milk and juice and to get her to the potty once, but every time I stand up I get light-headed, nauseous, and quickly climb back into bed.

She's eating Saltines for breakfast too. Sigh . . . I am such a good mother. . .

My parents are out of town for the weekend.

I can't call Ben because he is in a 'secured' area where no cell phones are allowed.

Soooooooo BORED.

I HATE the flu.

(and yes, whining about it is already making me feel a little teensy bit better)

So sorry to hear that Bridget. Are you sure it's not something else? Hee hhe. I'm so glad Ben made it back and I hope that everything works out with the re-application process and finding a place to live!

That's what blogging is all about, babe. Whining.

Feel better ....

i'd come help you, but i don't want to catch your nasty sickness, and i have to teach young womens tomorrow

Anne said...

I can come get her. The last thing you want to do is play with a toddler when you're puking. Do you want some soup? I can bring it over.

Bridget said...

Thanks for commiserating with me, guys.

Noelle, mom and Ruben took the dune buggy and the ATVs to the river. They're meeting Matt, Amber and the kids there.

Joanna, Lol! I should only be so lucky to get pregnant so fast! Paige is recovering from 5 days of the flu, so I'm pretty sure I got what she had :)

Anne, Thanks for the offers! I'm feeling a bit better - good enough to get up and get lunch for Paige (which of course she didn't eat). And she's due for a nap soon so I won't have to entertain her much longer anyway. I actually think I might be able to nap while she naps too. But, soup? That might sound good after our naps! I'll give you a call when we wake up.

I just hope you don't catch it after hanging out last night. . .

Ugh - I wish I could give you more than my sympathy. The flu is the WORST. Did you get a flu shot? I had one, but still live in fear of getting the flu and giving it to Will. I really hope that you're feeling better now.
