How did THAT happen?

It seems as though the plague {or possible walking pnemonia} has taken up residence at our house.
It has hit hard and strong.
Everyone was home today.

Adison was the last holdout and praise the Lord, but it seems as though having a day of rest has helped her immensely.

The funny thing about this bug is that you start feeling better and thinking that you are over it and then WHAM you are even more sick than before.
K has been in bed for two days.
Lee developed a fever yesterday morning and was miserable most of the day.
She still had a fever this morning but it seems {fingers crossed} to have broken.
Abby is slowly getting better, still coughing and has a runny nose.
Me, well, I am coughing and having headaches almost everyday.
Fun stuff.

Okay, now for the "How did THAT happen?" segment of our program.
Kidding, I've always wanted to say something like that.
First, I will give some background.
Due to the previously mentioned plague, I was nice and NyQuiled up on Saturday evening.

Sunday afternoon, my dad called asking if he could pick up Adison to run some errands with him.
She was thrilled to go.
As I was walking back into the house after walking her to his car I spied something out of the ordinary.
VERY out of the ordinary.
Yep, someone hit our tree.
The tree that K and I keep talking about taking out but haven't done and now probably never will as it probably saved our house from being hit.
{Wow, that was a long sentence!}

They didn't hit it a little bit, they hit it A LOT & hard.
K and I both commented on the fact that we are shocked that they were able to drive away afterwards.

I didn't hear a thing due to my previously mentioned deep sleep courtesy of NyQuil.
K heard something, but it happened at around 2 in the morning and he thought someone had hit a trashcan.
Our poor tree!

How was your weekend?


  1. Oh my goodness! I feel like your whole house has been sick all year! You poor things and your poor tree! I can't believe someone would just drive away but glad everyone is ok! Get well soon

  2. I hate to hear that everyone is so sick! Sounds terrible! I've been fighting a little congestion myself for the past 2 days and it's just downright annoying. Hope you all feel better real soon!

  3. Oh I hope you guys feel better soon! I apparently have the plague too! And you hit the nail on the head when you said that you feel better and then WHAMO! I went back to school yesterday only to crash a few hours into it feeling horrible!

  4. Yikes! That tree is obviously meant to stay. I hope you all feel better soon. (((Huggies)))
