~ kitten poodle soup ~

We have a quiet a few uninvited guests visiting our home
those nasty cold and flu bugs
have moved right in
making
everyone sick
everyone
but
moi
{me}
{knock on wood}
Sooooo you know what kind of weekend I am going to have
I will be making
buckets of
chicken noodle soup
and
dodging
nasty germ bullets
when all I really want to do
is have some fun
Can someone come and rescue me
and take me far away?


chicken noodle soup
kitten poodle soup
kit and kaboodle snoop
thicken strudel loop
stick in doodle hoop
{as you can see I am already going loopy}
Please save me from myself
I Need to get out of this house!

Poor you! I just went through the same thing last weekend and this week....we are ALL almost over it! NASTY! Chicken soup is the best medicine.

Good luck....

Koralee:

I am praying for healing and restoration. I am sooooo very sorry you are not feeling well. I wondered where you have been.

You poor thing...sounds like you're getting a little "soupy" already! Take care of yourself...get everyone on a dose of vit.-c for a few days and keep those heads and chests open! Good luck, hope it passes fast! :D

I love it when the kids go back to school -- except when they start bringing home the colds and flu's! So far we've weathered the storm. Good luck to you! Go out and treat yourself to something!

I hate having to dodge germs! When i have patients with a cold or gastro im always so paranoid lol. If you keep using hand alcohol gel after you touch everything you mite be saved :) that stuff kills more germs than handwashing.

Cough splutter.Hope you escape its clutches!Im sure, My Mary Poppins of Blue Bird Notes would never come dowwn with anything, she is tooo cheerful and sweet. Sharon xoxox

Sher said...

Anne Marie said...

Take Care Koralee
Don't let the nasty fly catch you too!
Good mum you are! x Julie

Julie@beingRUBY said...

*jean* said...

sarah-jane down the lane said...

Yay come and play with me Down the Lane for a little while, I am happily organising all my Ausie photos, making mosaics etc.!

Hope everyone is feeling resored by your chicken broth,

Love Sarah x

Someone's Mom said...

I'm fighting a head cold myself, but I'm blaming it on the flu shot I got this week. It could never be the fact that I was in 97 degree weather one day, and back in the 40's the next, could it?

I know where you can find an easy chicken soup recipe:)

Don't let them breathe on you.

Hello, Koralee,
I am so sorry those nasty germs are visiting your home! Hope everyone is on the mend and well again soon!! Your posts always make me smile. I bet your students absolutely love your classroom!! Thank you for stopping by Bunny Cottage for a visit. I always love it when you do. Vicki

Maria said...

Hi Koralee! ohhh hope your 'kitty-cats' are well soon!
Our school absentee list last week was two columns long! I've been 'fighting' it myself...
hope you keep your guard up!

Healthy wishes and prayers coming your way ~~~

LillySue said...

Heehe! My kids (Teens) have been sick for a week now....My Son was home the whole week and I am SO READY for him to be well and back in school! We have an Asian style restaurant local here that does great chicken broth FULL of veggies and glass noodles my kids always crave when they are sick. I also made a big batch of turkey cabbage soup which was gone in a wink. They both sound terrible but their appetites don't seem to be affected any!
Hope everyone is well at your house soon!!
Blessings~LillySue

Carol said...

A good book..sitting in a sunny spot....some chocolate.... a cup of tea in a favorite cup...can be almost as good as getting away from it all!

paperhill said...

Janean said...

I held my breath while leaving a comment (nasty flu bug indeed!). *smile*

JBeaudetStudios said...

Hi Koralee, I hope your household gets better fast and be careful not to wear yourself down being nurse to everyone. Chicken soup always helps. Thanks for your kind words about my art, I needed it:)

Nezzy said...

Little bluebird mama ya do need rescued from that infested nest of yours. I sure wish I could help but all I can do is send you my prayers......

Take care of yourself, Hon.

Traci said...

Looks like mamma bird needs to fly the coop! Oh well it's all part of the job unfortunately. Try to steal away and take a hot bubble bath,or have some tea and a good book. Take care! Traci

Elizabeth Mahlou said...

Boy, do I know what you are talking about! A germ accompanied me home from Germany two weeks ago. We are now surviving through peace co-existence!

Jacqueline said...

So sorry to hear that you have a poorly family. I think that I would like to be sick in your house...I LOVE CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP !!!! I'm afraid that I can't come over from the U.K. to take you away from everything, but I did take you to the land of the fairies, didn't I ? Thanks for popping in to see me and commenting and following me. I wish all of your family, a speedy recovery. XXXX

Tracey said...

You're probably immune to everything because you've been exposed to it all by now, being a teacher and all! I do hope everyone is better soon...so you can have a little fun!!!

:) T

Jeanneoli said...

I agree...it has been the weirdest few weeks around here too. I hope people are feeling better at your house now..we are...knock on wood:)

jqline said...

paperbird said...

stay well- I am crossing my fingers I don't catch anything- my grand babies are here and they have little runny noses- uck!

June said...

Koralee, you cracked me up with this post. Are you sure you're not sick? You sound a little delirious.
Smiles,
June

Tom Tuttle from Tacoma said...

take care! it's really funny that we don't think about chicken soup to battle against colds here (i think i'm not too far off the fact). i believe a chinese physician would say the same thing a western doctor would: just rest more and drink more fluids. never: "drink more chicken soup." lol

My Passport to Style said...

Hi Koralee, thank-you so much for your support of the Dear Diary event, I know how buisy you must be and for wonderful encouraging nature!You are a woman of action as well of words a rare quality in this world.I REALLY appreciate this wonderful quality of yours!Sharon xxxooo

Mo said...

oo im sooo sorry you have to play the nurse !! it's never fun ! but i honestly wish i could be playing the nurse for my mom ( ironicly a nurse) who's sick back home in France...far away from me :-(

GET BETTER everyone !!!

Morning T said...

Yuck Koralee, I'm so sorry! Hang in there and drink airborne every 4 hours to make sure you don't catch it. Hope they're feeling better today!

Maria Confer said...

Oh, no!!! I hope everyone starts feeling better very soon and that you dodge those nasty germs!!!

XOXO
