Nope, I doubt this is anything serious, but thank you for reminding me to be aware.

I sure hope that bug leaves your house soon. BLECH! It sounds awful!

Thanks for the great ideas. I'm definitely going to have to try the tent. The three y/o will especially like that. Everyone seems a little better tonight so here's hoping. Fortunately everyone has been willing to drink herbal tea, water and watered down juice so we're all staying hydrated. We have disinfectant wipes that we've been using and liquid bleach that we've been adding to water to clean the counters. And we've been washing the clothes in hot water just to make sure they come good and clean.

When he asked, all he could get for an answer was "no spinach." I WANT MY SPINACH!!! Do I have to throw a hissy fit and stomp my feet in the middle of the produce aisle? Or maybe that old feminine wile, tears. Kale, escarole, etc. just will not do. It has to be spinach. I just want to saute' it in lots of butter and then pig out.
I got my spinach! I got my spinach!!! Yea! Son #1 was working on the North Shore and stopped in one of the major supermarkets up there and got me two big bags of baby spinach. I would tell him I love him, but he just tells me that I will get over it. Or some other smart remark. We have only been hunting every day since the 2nd of the month for it. Now I can go to bed a happy camper. If you look out your window you will see a crazy old lady dancing down the street. That's me.

Have gotten 2 estimates "proposals" on an entirely new HVAC system $$$$

I am grateful that, #1 this didn't happen with the A/C in the middle of a hot summer and #2 we have options to pay for this without debt, things could be much worse!

I don't know about people, but with dogs, 48 hours is the time it takes for antibiotics to kick in and for the dog to feel better...must be similar for people. I have a chronic low-grade kidney infection for which I have a script. I only need two doses before the pain goes away--but I do have to take the pills for the entire 10 days. I wish I could get rid of this infection once and for all. Just doesn't seem to want to happen (it has been 7 years).
