A Little Hint for Hubbies.......

Sorry to have been away. Our family has been hit with the most nasty tummy bug ever created. We call it the "Spring Break Bug", because that is exactly how long it has lasted. Ryan brought it home the first day of Spring Break and here it is, the day before the guys go back to school, and life is just beginning to emerge from the covers of each bed. Oh my stars, what a week it has been!

Thankfully Easter was a lovely day. We were all healthy as could be that day. The day after was another story entirely. David has been the only one to not get sick, and for that I am extremely grateful. Poor Mick came home from his rock climbing trip on Wed. and was sick by Friday.
It has taken about 4 days to completly overcome the effects of it, with me of course, being the exception. I do hope to get back to my crafting soon. Slow and steady like that turtle as always.......

But here comes the hint for hubbies -
When your family is sick with a tummy bug and is JUST beginning to hold food down and is requesting soup - Southwestern Tortilla Chicken with Beans is usually NOT what they have in mind. :D nor is Teriyaki Chicken Noodle, Cheesey Potato Broccoli, or New England Clam Chowder. All of those are quite yummy on their own in normal times I am sure, but just plain ol' red and white cans of Cambell's chicken noodle or even Ramen are just the ticket. We do appreciate your thoughtfullness, honest to goodness, we do! but at times like these, simple is best. love ya, honey! :) thanks for all the trips to the store for ginger ale and Gatorade! We couldn't have made it without you! mwah!

Spring break was awesome for us until the Sunday before school started back...my youngest daughter is in bed with pneumonia. What's up with that? It should be illegal or something to get sick anywhere near a vacation of any kind! LOL

I have to say that my hubby would get the plain old campbells chicken noodle because he would be afraid to buy anything else. He is challenged at the grocery store--I think it overwhelms him and he grabs for the first familiar thing he sees! LOL
