So sick...

The other day Angus woke up and promptly vomited. Seven hours later, so did I. I'm so glad I raised my children to share everything.

The last 24 hours has been difficult to say the least. And I'm inundated with papers and proposals to grade, even though I feel as fresh as a dried up cow turd and my insides are quivering like half set jello.

The contest is still going on til Saturday. But we also have some great news. Stephen Parrish, has just landed himself a book deal!!! Congratulations Stephen!

So sorry that I will not be making the rounds! But please come by this weekend when Cindy and I announce the winners of the contest. And please pray for me that I don't vomit on my students during their final presentations.

Rest assured, Kiersten is talking about poop today to make sure nothing is left out.

I hope you and yours feel 100% soon.
Nausea is the worst thing ever, IMO.

A little vomit can only add more colour to your life. Just the wrong colour, that's all. Get well soon!

Nausea and throwing up are just the worst, in my opinion. Hope you and your fam feel better very very soon!!

And congrats to Stephen, too! Trying to focus on something positive this morning.

El, I remember the little ones being sick last year - uh oh - sorry, girl.

My baby is 17 today. Talk about freakout. That's enough to make me sick right along with you.

Hope you're better soon!

That is the *worst* (and your students will feel the same way...in about 24 hours...).

Sorry to hear you are sick. The bright side is that these are *final* presentations, and by the time you are done grading everything, you will be well enough to actually enjoy your break.

Get well soon!

So sorry! I hope you feel better. That's the hard part about being a mommy...you're still expected to function when you're ill. :(

(((hugs)))) you poor thing. I can relate. I've had a horrible time w/ illness in my house. We also teach our children to share. Too well. . . apparently.

I hope you feel better soon.

May now, so I hope you're on the mend.

Vomit is no fun — unless you're a winged insect.

Hope you're doing better, Ello. :)
