Unfortunately, my amusement has quickly given way to fear. My Pond Boy may be the only one to come down with it so far, but I know its only a matter of time before the rest of us fall like dominoes. That's just the kind of family we are. Generous to a fault.
My oldest daughter has already been complaining of symptoms and the little guy was an amazing grump today. As I type, he's face down on his bed, fast asleep. He went up there all by himself, and that's never, ever a good sign. Peaceful, yes. Comforting, no.
So right now I'm bracing myself for a very long weekend. As soon as I finish typing, I'll start disinfecting Then I'll be stocking up on the Echinacea and all things antioxidant. Oh crap, who am I kidding. We're doomed. You swine flu.
