Last week Adrianna and I both had strep throat.
After a few days of feeling like death warmed over and a couple of days on antibiotics, we were both on the mend.
Then this weekend, Greg and Brock ended up with a little stomach bug which they, so sweetly, passed on to me.
Over the past week & a half, I’ve had some time to reflect over some very important lessons that I’ve learned and I would like to share them with you now.
Lesson #1: A toilet bowl can never be clean enough.
Lesson #2: One bathroom in a house of 3 people with a stomach bug is not enough.
Lesson #3: Dishes & laundry should stop when you are sick, but they actually multiply when you are trapped in the bathroom.
Lesson #4: High fevers make you have strange dreams. I recommend having a notebook & pen next to your bed so you can write them down to blog about them later.
Lesson #5: Men are the biggest babies on the planet when they are sick.
Lesson #6: Men don’t understand why you can’t clean the house, cook meals, bathe the children & be your overall awesome self when you have the exact same illness that they have.
Lesson #7: It’s usually not a good idea to blog when still slightly sick & slightly bitter.
Lesson #8: Daytime TV is horrible. Thank the good Lord for DVR.
Lesson #9: I need to dust my ceiling fans more often.
Lesson #10: Weight loss is a piece of cake when you spend several days at a time in bed & when you do get out of bed, it is to go to the bathroom to vomit or poop.
Lesson #11: Oversharing with blog readers is always a bad idea but you usually don’t realize it until you hit publish.
