Company Girl Coffee: The Flu Edition

I don't know about where you live, but here in Omaha, the stomach flu is going around BIG TIME!  I have had many kids in the school where I teach out with it~sometimes for a week at a time.  My brother is down with it today as well, and this morning as I was reading his post on Facebook I congratulated myself on keeping the bugs at bay for my family.  "Great job cleaning this week!" I thought to myself.  "Way to use the bleach and the Clorox wipes!"  BIG MISTAKE.

My class had just returned from lunch, and we were settling in for an exciting chapter of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, when the school secretary came into my room looking apologetic.  "I'm really sorry, but Evan is in the nurse's office with a fever."  (My kids go to school where I teach).  By the time we got home, his fever was 101 and he was very nauseous. 

What a wonderful start to the weekend!

Now, I am just praying that it doesn't spread to the rest of us.  My hopes aren't very high though! :)

If you missed my post earlier in the week, my biopsy results came back as completely normal!!  Thank you to all of you Company Girls who prayed for me.  I am so grateful.

When you're done reading this, you may want to use some hand sanitizer!!
