After trip to the doctor's office this morning, there are two more confirmed sick people in my house-- Leah has the flu and Lucas has double ear infections. In addition, Mike started to feel bad as well. So we spent nearly the entire day all chilling out on our bed. Thankfully, we have a king size bed which fits our family of five.
In the process we learned all the things five people can do while recovering from an illness. There were the obvious things like sleeping, watching movies and reading. But there was also UNO playing, rock-paper-scissor tournaments, and a few fierce rounds of 20 questions. There was laughing, storytelling and back scratching. And Lucas made sure we all had some fun playing cars too. My dad came by to pick up Hannah for a few hours. So far she is the only one who has avoided sickness. She was pretty glad to get out of the house for awhile.
I think today's day of rest was exactly what we all needed.
