Spreading germs at an exponential rate...

The day after I posted last was Valentine's Day. That morning, as I was making lunches for the masses, I suggested to Frugaldad that I pick him up after I picked up Frugalgirl2 at preschool and we could go out to lunch. I even shaved my legs and painted my toenails red in honor of the day of love. We went to lunch, stopped at a couple stores, and I was home by 2:30. Not too much later, I came down with fever and chills and body aches.

A week later, I still get light-headed if I stand up for too long. It seemed to be a gender-biased virus at first, because over the weekend the three girls and I laid around in a fever-induced stupor. Then Tuesday morning, both the male residents of the household were on their backs.

I'll spare you the gory details. Just know that it involved dozens of loads of laundry, a Steam-vac, Bac-out, and Febreze. As I type, two of my children are asleep in their beds. During the day. The girls are getting well enough to be crabby instead of just lethargic, but I imagine Frugalboy will miss the whole week of school.

I can't wait for the day when I don't feel sick anymore. I haven't even been able to knit.
