The Flu Bug Hit


PARTY!!


The Thrifty Groove is one year old this month! Therefore we are celebrating all month long with giveaways! Every week will be a different giveaway and a couple of surprises here and there! This week's giveaway is this set of 2 gorgeous rooster charge plates! Check it out and enter HERE!


Okay, on to our previously scheduled program! :)





I told you all last week that some nasty stomach bug took over the little princess and me. Well, we are finally on the mend but, of course, Troy, being the contrary man that he is (LOL), joined the sick house party late and so now he is dealing with it.

It has not been a fun week. I know a lot of you are and have been dealing with this same nasty bug so, you can relate. Here are just a few of our "sick blues" LOL. I was so surprised to realize that blue seems to be the comforting color.

Mama and Princess's snuggle on the couch blanket (yes, it is a Sponge Bob blanket. It was given to us from a friend and it is the softest blanket!), our PJ's, socks and towel. We have gone through a lot of towels and washcloths!



And although these were typical items on the table, this is obviously a staged photo. LOL I just respect you guys too much and what you to return to this blog so, I decided NOT to include the soiled wash cloths, used Kleenex's, wrappers and other not so pleasant items. LOL

A thermal carafe filled with hot tea, a cup (no dainty teacup during sick time! LOL), lotion, Alka Seltzer (well, the generic from Walmart) and easy on the tummy cookies.








**Just a little tiny teaser.........I have a little surprise for you on Wednesday......Now, Shhhhhh, don't say anything! :)
