Life is Funny

Tonight I went out to dinner with a group of my friends. It was so fun to see them because I don't see them very often now that I have moved less than one mile away. It is crazy simple things can change your life so much.

The waiter tonight was lacking in judgement. He did a few really unsanitary things. I ordered a salad and as he is setting the plate in front of me there is a fly sitting on top of it. . . . so I told him there was a fly on it. He said, "Oh" and then proceeds to try and pick the fly out of my salad. So now his fingers are in my salad and the fly isn't flying away but falling deeper into the salad. I had to tell him that maybe I should just get a new salad. It seemed as if he was trying to get rid of the fly so that he could just let me keep the salad. When he brought the new salad I had to wonder if he had simply scraped the top layer off of the salad.

A little later he is filling up my friends water and it starts to overfill. - You know how the ice shifts in the pitcher and then it dumps - well this is what happened. So he picks up my friends glass (that she has been drinking out of) and dumps part of it back into the pitcher. Then he proceeds to the next person to fill up their cup! I think he needs to retake the food handlers permit class!!

I thought we were finally healthy . . . but I was wrong. There is this nasty parasite going around and we caught it.

My oldest has been sick the longest and I know how contagious this is so we have been VERY cautious so we don't pass this around. Thursday night was the last time anyone had any episodes so by Sunday I thought I was safe to take the family to church. Then we went to my parents for the holiday - then Monday morning Jacob got sick - really sick! That night Danny got sick again. We are just starting the beginning of the third week of school and Danny missed the entire second week and we are starting in on the third.

The Doctor is having us take labs and has given us a prescription for this anti-parasitic medicine. Which he said is very expensive so if we have to treat all of the kids it will be spendy. I am hoping the end of this thing is in sight!!
