My kids have amazing timing. They always seem to get sick at the worst possible time. Of course, I can’t think of a good time to get sick, in all honesty, but there is definitely a bad time to get sick: on Mother’s Day, Christmas Eve, your first birthday party, in the middle of a camping trip, during a 2-week family road trip, on a ski trip… I could on and on.
After sinus infections, chronic coughs, bronchitis and colds for most of January, I thought we were in the clear. I had a week off. The professor puked in his bed (on his beautiful Pottery Barn comforter) in the middle of the night over the weekend.
Sigh. The twin comforter is nice and fluffy and won’t fit in my washing machine. So, off to the dry cleaners I go.
The Professor managed to get Middle-Child sick with this stomach bug. He too, got sick in the middle of the night. Luckily, his matching comforter was spared.
So this week has been spent (for me) holding hands, washing hands, passing the bowl over, cleaning the bowl, washing sheets and being Mommy to my two young men. But, as timing would have it, I had to cancel a dinner for some friends this weekend because, really, would you risk getting sick for a Persian dinner?
I know the Princess will get this bug shortly. It’s fate. She sucks her thumb and she’s going to touch something I forgot to wash and pop the infested thumb into her mouth. I hope she has better timing than her brothers.
And on this disgusting subject, with the Superbowl around the corner, I have no idea if anyone will invite us to their house to watch the big game. I’m sure no one will want to come here.
I found this recipe in my archives, waiting to be published. I made these Drumsticks with Chipotle Glaze last summer. The hubby is not into spicy food, but I like a little kick in my meal. Not only were these the easiest things to make, they were so flavor-packed you’d expect cartoon balloons popping up saying:
Yeah, they are THAT good. You could totally use this glaze for wings, too, so go at it.
You can find the recipe for Drumsticks with with Chipotle Glaze here!
Stay healthy and stay warm, everyone. The little-ones are definitely out there catching every possible bug and germ they can. I think I need to invest in a Hazmat suit….
