things are starting to come back together around here! sawyer ended up with a fever and cough, so we went to the clinic yesterday and got him started on tamiflu as well. it definitely helped him faster than me, then again - i did wait 3 days before i saw the doc.
today is the 1st day i've had the energy to actually move around the house, and so - laundry is almost caught up, vacuuming is done, sheets are being washed, bathrooms are clean. the kids are *supposedly* working on their rooms right now. i kept them home from school today, just to be safe. i don't want to spread this flu any farther.
the funny thing about this flu bug - no stomach issues. at all. no nausea, no vomiting, no other stuff. i didn't realize it was the flu, i figured a respiratory thing, but the flu test probably doesn't lie, right? my appetite remained strong through the whole ordeal. luckily i had made potato soup right before i got sick, so i lived on that. the kids kind of fended for themselves, eating cereal, yogurt, pizza, and take out chinese. which means today there is nothing left in the house. i scavenged in the pantry to come up with enough food to make this soup.
really, is there anything the pioneer woman can't do? i had to make a few changes - only one can of beans, one can of broth, added in 1 c. corn, i didn't have cornmeal. i fried up some corn tortilla chips too. mmm.
