Caleb was sick on the 23rd with a stomach bug. I obsessively santized the house and, over and over again, but to no avail. Max woke up with it on Christmas morning. I took pictures of him opening his presents in bed. By mid-afternoon, Frank was sick and Rita and I succumbed by bedtime. On Sunday night, Zach was down for the count and Kimia (Caleb’s girlfriend) sent me a text that she had it as well. Nobody has gotten sick since then so we are hoping everybody else in the house is immune. We had to postpone our Boxing Day party, of course.
As I’m typing this on Monday, we are getting the big blizzard that’s all over the news (14 inches by noon) and Ali is cooking a gourment meal for us in the kitchen while the adults are watching comedies in the living room, next to the Christmas tree.
The Boxing Day party will be tomorrow and we’re looking forward to a rip-roarin’ good time!
This week’s Maxism:
“Does Santa put hidden cameras in kids’ rooms to see if they’re naughty or nice?”
Hugs to all!
