Down and out

The headache and terrible sore throat I'd been carrying around for 48 hours turned into the full blown flu within about 15 minutes last night.  It's now 8:49pm and I've officially been in bed for 24 hours.  I have never done that while having three kids.  Thankfully it's been that long since I've been this sick and thankfully Chris had no classes to teach and wasn't at the firehouse today.  I woke up for the first time at 2:30 this afternoon to discover my family had gone to Sunday morning breakfast, grocery shopping, Lauren had already taken her nap, and they were all outside riding bikes in the cul-de-sac.  I have to say it's a little startling to wake up and find that your house has been a flurry of activity and you had no idea at all.  The kids would come in every now and then and kiss me and leave and that was all I needed.  Tomorrow will be, has to be, a different day.  I can't imagine that sleeping it off for nearly 36 hours won't have done the trick.  Here's hoping.
