The Quickest Way To Lose Weight

STOMACH VIRUS!!!! Yes, that is why I have been absent from my bloggy world. Jack woke up in Orlando on Friday morning about 2:15 throwing up. Every hour! All night! At around 4:30, I was feeling pretty bad too, but chalked it up to no sleep. Around 6:30, I knew I had it too. And around 8:30, Gabe did too. The plan for the day? To travel the 10 hours home. What did we do? We traveled the 10 hours home. It was the longest day of my life. That is the sickest I've been in a long time. I've been escaping sickness but Mr. Stomach Virus snuck up on me. We finally made it home around 9:30 and I crashed for the next 48 hours. I have come out on the other side alive but weak. And I'm back to the grind. This morning, after taking the boys to school, I headed to the doctor in Greenville, which is about 45 minutes away. Zane has bronchitis. They gave him an inhaler, an antibiotic, and some other kind of medicine. So all I can say is GO AWAY, OLD MAN WINTER!!!!! We don't like you!

On a positive note, we had a great trip to Orlando. I will be posting pictures soon. We left the 80 degree weather and came home to this.At least it is just on top of the mountains. We do not have snow in our yard yet. The kids would be thrilled because there would be no school. But it is soooo cold! I hate cold weather and I do not function well. What? Only 4 more months of winter. I can make it!

Yuck! I sure hope noone puked in the car and you had to smell it the whole way.

It is snowing here today!! Not sticking but coming down heavily. I wish it would stick.

Hope you all are better and had a good time.Did you get my thank you I posted on one of your blog posts- or I either emailed you? Again thanks for the book, I am so excited to try some crock pot meals. The Christmas season will be a great time to have meals cooking while we are shopping.
