Under the weather.

A bug seems to have hit our house. Over the last few days each of us has been afflicted by a stomach ailment. At first I thought it was something I ate but then my husband had it the next day. Today one of my son's seems to be suffering the same illness. The only upside to a stomach illness for me is that I generally loose weight as a result. I try to be positive and think that a stomach illness is like one of nature's free weight loss products. After a few days I feel better and come out a few pounds thinner. This is what keeps me going as I clean bathrooms and wash bedding. Of course I would rather we all not get sick at all but there really seems to be no way to avoid it without living in a bubble. I don't think they make family sized hamster balls.
