sickness, again with the

Sunday morning Ben woke up with a headache, fever, and a cough.  I woke up with a headache, fever, stomach ache, and achy all over.  It was such a fun day.  Ben rolled around the floor moaning while I writhed around in the chair moaning.  Greg ran around and took everything out of all the closets and drawers.  David watched TV all day.  Nick and my dad cut down tree limbs high above their heads with my dad’s new tool.  My mom followed Greg around and picked up after him.  This morning I felt better, but Ben was still sick.  Then 15 minutes before school ended, the school nurse called and said that David had a fever and an ear infection.  Woo hoo!

(Greg is still fine.  So is Nick.  Oh, and we have a fence now!  YAY!)
