Rainforest Cafe, being sick, and the cub scouts

Sunday we celebrated our anniversary (nine years and she still puts up with me!) by taking the kids to the Rainforest cafe. Lexi took Adam Apple, her preschool class pet, with her and we got lots of pictures there. We all had a really great time.

But alas, I am not sure if it was something I ate or what, that night I started getting the chills bad! I checked my temperature and I was just 99.1 but my whole body was shaking. So I took some Advil and went to bed - Chris said I was shivering so bad the whole bed was shaking.

So Monday when I woke up with a 103 I decided to take the day off. Unfortunately that was the day that Nate's cub scout pack was going to march in the LD Bell parade. So Chris told Nate that daddy as sick and if I did not get better by that afternoon that he could not go. If you had told him Santa, the tooth fairy and the Easter bunny did not exist while dropping all his books in a shredder you could not have produced a sadder look on his face. So needless to say as soon as he was off to school I took a bunch of aleeve and went to bed. I stayed relatively immobile all day until Nate got home and I checked my temperature: 98.2. So I took Nate to the parade and walked with him as he passed out candy to the crowd. Nate had a grand time.

But I paid for it. Tuesday I woke up with 102. So I took Tuesday off as well. Sadly Chris caught it from me and by that afternoon I had to pick Nate up from school. But aside from that both of us were sitting or laying down all day.

The last two days I worked from home. Today I was able to walk around comfortably in a single layer of clothes so tomorrow if Chris is feeling okay I will go to work. Chris seems to be a day behind me as far as being sick goes so hopefully she will be okay tomorrow or Saturday. And with any luck we will both be 100% by Monday.

Just in time for the next cub scout meeting.....
