Just a quick post here to let you all know that eating salt water taffy and chicken noodle soup on a "touchy" stomach is not a good idea.
Going into Friday, two of our children were throwing up. Well, Saturday morning came along...and two more went down with some throwing up and fever.
That brought the sick total to four in the house.
Then, my husband declared he was sick, but it wasn't throwing up. It was that gastro intestional bug that makes your stomach cramp with pain every once in awhile. He felt so aweful, he had to lay down all day.
I decided I wasn't doing too bad, except I did have that occasional stomach pain going on that my husband had, but I wasn't feeling completely incapcitated.
So, on an errand to the store to pick up chicken noodle soup, crackers and 7-up for my sick family, I decided to also pick up some salt water taffy. I hadn't eaten much, so I went to the store hungry. I was very tempted to also buy some cherry cheesecake from the deli, some of those chocolate covered donettes that Hostess makes, some ice cream...but I resisted all that and just picked up some salt water taffy.
So, I had some salt water taffy...several pieces then fixed chicken noodle soup for everyone. I had some too.
Well, I think you all know what's coming. A few hours later, I am having stomach pains that were in addition to the gastro intestional pains. These were the pains that were saying they were NOT happy about my recent food choices.
Let's just say, I felt much better after I threw it all up. And, that I was very glad that I also did not eat cherry cheesecake, chocolate covered donettes and ice cream.
The only person in the house who didn't get sick is 5-year-old Iris Anna. I'm convinced that I got both sicknesses, the gastro intestional one...which is still going on with me, and the throwing up one that the kids got.
But I am feeling better this evening and have been keeping down the food that I've eaten.
But don't worry. I still have some salt water taffy left, but I will be holding off on that for a little while yet.
Hope you're all doing well.
