When my caller ID says “Neuse Charter School”, I get a little nervous. Either one of two things are happening…Callie is sick or Callie is in trouble! Neither are good scenarios. Yesterday when I got the call, Callie was sick. Fever, chills, lethargic, etc. She was in a great mood when we parted ways in car pool. Guess the flu does come on suddenly!
When your child gets sick who usually follows? That’s right…mama.Yes, the flu bug has bitten, not once but twice. We both have the flu. And it stinks.
However, it will not put a damper on Frugal February. Remember that delicious vegetable beef soup I made earlier in the week? It was even better last night with another glorious cheese toast. And, leftovers are free! Kudos to my husband who served dinner to me and Callie in the quarantined bonus room under our comfy blankets. We also watched a movie, “How to Train Your Dragon”. And if you know me really well, you must know that I am sick…I don’t usually sit and watch movies. But, I might watch a few more before this is over.
And what’s for dinner you might ask? I don’t know yet. Don’t know what I may or may not feel like eating. The soup is gone. I may be teaching Anthony how to make chicken noodle soup…stay tuned!
