Glad you and hubby are feeling better , Christine! How are the kids faring? Gabe is still sick but hopefully the antibiotics will kick in soon. I had to give him Tylenol via suppository. We are mixing amoxicillin powder with grape jelly. He still fights it. I didn't feel like forcing it this morning so he stayed in his room an hour until he willingly ate it. Fingers crossed that was the battle to end the war. Somehow I doubt it.

C, glad you are feeling better! That stinks A got it! Was it just a 24-48 hr bug? I read an article yesterday about norovirus (stomach flu) and they said to make sure you use diluted bleach to kill the germs. The hand sanitizers and Clorox wipes aren't strong enough. I guess its hitting our county pretty hard. I really hope Abby doesn't get it!

All that being said, your superbowl spread sounds delicious! What time should we come over?

Yikes, poor Gabe! Its so sad / frustrating when kids fight medicine. You know they'll just feel so much better if they take it!

Have you been able to enjoy your weekend at all despite the major shift in plans?

Yeah I believe it about it hitting the US really hard. I don't think I've ever heard of so many cases!

It's turning out just like every other weekend. Lots of errands, cleaning and preparing to start the week all over again. I did buy a Mac yesterday...but I'm a little disappointed with the screen size. It looked fine in the store because they were running the apple demo so of course it was optimized for the small screen. Once I started looking at websites it was painful to strain to read everything...and I have 20/10 eyesight!

My mom said she would buy me a monitor, mouse and keyboard but I wonder if Im better off eating a 15% restocking fee (I'm assuming that's what it would be) and buying a bigger laptop. Ugh. So irritated and mad at myself for not doing more homework before I bought it.

Call them Michelle. I did a quick google search and it doesn't look like they'll charge you (you bought it at the apple store right?).

A isn't going to school tomorrow. Still sick and now a slight fever. At least she thinks the pedialyte popsicles taste better than she did a few years ago. Keep your fingers crossed those stay down.
