Yea! The weekend is almost here. That means this veerrryyy looonnnggg week is almost over. I couldn't be happier!

Last Sunday I woke up feeling like I had a nasty cold coming on. By naptime (every Sunday afternoon is naptime for everyone in our house:) I was really feeling it. By that night, I knew it was going to get worse. I woke up pretty sick on Monday morning. My sweet hubby let me stay in bed most of the day~there are perks to having your husband work from the home:)

Monday was the worst of it though and I have been slowly, but progressively getting better all through the week. I don't know if it was the swine flu, but the symptoms were there. Actually, swine flu symptoms are the same as any other flu symptoms.

By Wednesday, my kiddos were starting to show symptoms of catching it, unfortunately. They haven't been anywhere nearly as sick as I was, but a little nausea, a touch of diarrhea, some low-grade fever makes for some not-so-happy kiddos.

This morning everyone has awakened fever-free! Can I get a hallelujah?!! I am hoping and praying that this is the end. I am ready to get back to normal life again~like actually getting out of the house and going places. We've had a bad case of cabin fever here:)

I hope that sickness has not hit your home, too, but as I read my friends' statuses on Facebook I hear about sickness everywhere. I'm praying that whatever we've had this week has made us immune for the rest of the winter!

Here's looking forward to a sickness-free weekend!! I hope yours is great, too!!

Glad you are all feeling better! My RN friend who has treated some confirmed cases where she works, said that swine flu starts with a cough and aches..then a fever on the third day. Hope it stays away! And yes...your hubby is sweet. :)

I'm glad everyone is feeling better. It definitely has been going around, this week in my classroom I had 5 students out all week. A few of them were confirmed cases for swine, so we used Lysol continuously throughout the days.

I also wanted to let you know that I left you something on my blog, if you want to check it out

Hope you have had a great weekend!
