Ughhhh Stomach Flu

So the stomach flu that hit the kids over a week ago, hit me...Friday morning
We had the truck all packed and ready to go to Na Da Farm Barn Sale when I woke up Friday at 1 a.m. with that dreaded "icky stomach feeling" which quickly progressed to things much worse than just an icky feeling. 
I spent the whole morning in tears because I was so disappointed.
That was Friday, now here it is Tuesday.....
Guess who is STILL sick?
Today is my first day out of bed for more than just running to the restroom. I have successfully eaten 4 crackers. Woohoo! It's really sad when that is the highlight of your week.

Anyway, enough about poor me and the rotten stomach flu. I hate to go too long with out posting and since I've not done anything of note in several days I am going to share from one of my Pinterest boards.
I am probably the last person on the planet to catch on to the burlap craze. It's not really my thing, and I still don't like it on anything that touches the skin, but I can't deny there is just something about it....
I also can't deny that it always smells funny. New burlap smells like gasoline and old burlap smells like a crusty fart. 
I found that soaking it in a mixture of water with vanilla and cinnamon does wonders for the smell!
Anyways, I am rambling, half delirious from lack of solid food I think!
