It got me

I was hoping my super powers as a mom would protect me from the flu that has been jumping from kid to kid in my house.  Last night, I started feeling queezy and figured if I just didn't think about it, I could avoid it.  Mind over matter right?

Not so lucky.  I have no idea how so much fluid could come out of my body.  I am so dehydrated already and have only been sick for about 12 hours.  I only have a very low grade fever but am so achy.  From the boys course of illness, this is a 3 day sickness.  I really need to be well by noon Sunday because we are having quilt day.  Not sure I'm going to make it.  I made the mistake of trying to drink some water last night.  4 ounces went in and about 10 times that much came right back out.  It makes it difficult to take anything to make me feel better.

Carla will be gone Sunday so I may need to find a replacement to sub in for me or just cancel.  In the 10 years of Binky Patrol, I've only cancelled once.  Ugh.

Hopefully I can sleep some today.  There are two more people in the family and I'm praying neither one gets it.  They are both pretty good at staying away from the sickos.  I tend to get right in the middle of the battle zone and dare the virus to get me.  99% of the time my immune system does its job.  At least I don't have to go to work.
