Sick as a dog

Come home from work early yesterday after throwing up.  (Stupid company smorgasboard.)
Crawled straight into bed and lied lifeless for about three hours.

When the boys got home from school, they ran up the stairs calling my name, thrilled that I was home.
Then, when they saw me in bed, "We're so happy you're home, but not happy about why you're home."

Elder Son asked if he could give me a hug or if he needed to keep his distance.
Younger Son asked if there was anything I needed.

So, yes.
I am writing this just to make you envious and wish you had my kids.

Hope your recovery is a swift one - these tummy bugs can be very unpleasant.

Good on your boys, just what you needed.

Awww man that sucks! The sick part not the great boys part. Hope you feel better soon and they take good care of you in the mean time.

Hug those boys while you can. (We have one son in Alaska and one in Afghanistan.)

That is great about the boys being so nice. Your family rocks! Let's hope you get over it soon.
