Stomach bug

The stomach bug has been rampant over the last few weeks at school. I was so happy that I had avoided the ugly bug and school was out for Christmas break on Friday. Home clear - right? WRONG!! I woke up this morning feeling fine and within an hour, I knew I had the nasty bug. Add to this the 3 1/2 hour drive home (without a bathroom) and you can guess how I have felt today. We arrived home early this afternoon and I have spent most of it in one room (you can guess which one!) Dennis has left to go get me something that will help. I drank a little port wine to settle my stomach. This too shall pass (and in a hurry I hope!) I pray the rest of the family will not be sick as well. After all, Christmas Eve is tomorrow and I just cannot be sick on Christmas Eve or Christmas!!


  1. Susan...I am so sorry to hear that the stomach bug has caught up with you.Both grandchildren had it the past two weeks.So far Ken and I have steered clear of it.How nice to spend a few days in Pigeon Forge at Christmas time.We were there at Thanksgiving last year and had such a nice time.We have seen the Dixie Stampede Christmas Show and loved it.Aren't all of the lights so pretty in both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg!Glad you are safely back home.Hope you are over the stumach bug before Christmas.

  2. Awww, I am so sorry and hope that bug goes away soon without stopping to visit the rest of your family.
