It's just like Christmas all over again...

...but not in the fun way where you get lots of presents and eat lots of yummy food. Instead, more like the way we spent this past Christmas.

A week and a half ago, Austin came down with a flu - fever of 102F or so for 3 days. He stayed home from school and was all around miserable. When the fever cleared, he was left with a knock-you-on-your-ass kind of cold.

By last Friday night Alex was running a fever. By Saturday morning, I was. For Alex, the fever lasted on and off for 5 days. She never really got knocked out with it - well until she got the knock-you-on-your-ass cold.

Me, I couldn't get out of bed for the first day of the flu and was barely functional for the next two days of the fever. And on the fourth day, I got 'the cold' - which, lucky for me, also turned into a chest infection.

And just when we thought we were in the clear, Ryan's gone down. He barely made it out of bed today. Friday is not looking promising.

Something tells me this family needs a lot of vitamin C in a hurry. Either that, or some nice summer-like weather.
