You've made me very tired! I've only 8, but the stomach bug thing is exhausting even then. Congratulations on your anniversary!!

All of the sickness makes it a little more intense, but I'm sure you wouldn't have it any other way!!! Happy Anniversary! Passed the last clip of Yours, Mine, and Ours to my husband...we've never seen it but will have to get it on Netflix now!

Happy Anniversary!! Ours was yesterday, too. (27th for us) I remember one anniversary where I got to sit in the hospital watching Mike doped up on Morphine. He was waiting for his emergency gallbladder surgery. Oh, the memories! Sounds like you had QUITE the day. Hope that bug gets out of there quickly!
