Last Saturday at 5pm, we brought someone over to the house to watch our children so we could attend the company Christmas Party.
At 10pm, my wife’s cell phone rang.
The sitter and her daughter were sick.
We told them to go home and leave my 12-year-old in charge until we go home…it would only be 10 minutes.
Sunday night…our youngest gets sick.
Monday night…our oldest.
Tuesday night…my wife.
Wednesday night..my daughter.
Thursday night…I started.
This is some kind of NASTY stomach virus…like no other that I have witnessed. Normally, my stomach is so rock solid that things like this don’t impact me.
Not this time.
Attending one Christmas party has managed to wreak havoc on this entire family.
It is sad, as a parent, when your children are crying for water and you can only distribute it in 2 oz. portions every couple of hours.
The only one who has completely recovered is my oldest…just in time for his football game today…his best of the year.
The rest of us are still afraid to eat or venture more than one minute away from a bathroom.
