My eldest and I are fighting off a dreadful virus. Our doctor tells us it is not the flu but it sure feels very flu like to us. She's certainly experiencing the worst of the symptoms. I'm trying to keep her hydrated and nourished as she fights this virus. A perfectly timed late season snow storm has given us well needed snow days off from school. This welcome break has made taking care of her so much easier. Favorite blankets, warm tea, homemade get you better chicken noodle soup, and lots of movie time are on the list today. Meanwhile I'm trying my best not to succumb to the germs.
