Over the weekend, Soccer Girl had a soccer tournament. While her team didn't come away with a championship, they did come away with a stomach virus. Three of the players' families plus the coach all got sick after coming home from the tournament.
We were one of those lucky families. Both Soccer Girl and I got sick on Monday. The Boy and Little Red started with it today. Being sick is absolutely no fun, but there are some positives.
- You can catch up on your favorite shows on Netflix or DVR.
- You can take a nap without feeling guilty about it.
- Your grocery bill shrinks dramatically. When you don't feel like eating anything, you don't need to buy much food.
- You can lose weight rapidly. Soccer Girl lost 4 lbs in 24 hours and I lost 5.
Okay, none of those things are really positive. Being sick stinks! Hopefully we'll all be back among the living soon.
