7 Quick Takes Friday

February 26, 2010 | 33 comments

Just as I sat down to write my 7 Quick Takes post for this week, I was alerted to the fact that a stomach bug has hit our house. (I’ll leave it to your imagination as to what exactly the data points were there. Let’s just say that both the washer and dryer are running as I type this.)

Needless to say, I won’t be able to put together my post today, but I encourage you to take a moment to check out some of the links to others’ posts below! I always have a great time reading through the list of links each week. Also, I know it would be much appreciated if you left a comment if you find a post you particularly like.

I hope everyone has a great (and stomach-bug-free) weekend!

Below is a Mr. Linky list if you’d like to add a link to your own 7 Quick Takes post. (1) Make sure the link you submit is to the URL of your post and not your main blog URL. (2) Include a link back here.

I look forward to reading your posts!

  1. It Feels Like Chaos

    So sorry to hear about your household's stomach bug. Hopefully it is very short-lived!h

  2. beyondhomemaking

    I'm so sorry you guys are sick! I'm hoping it's the short variety.

  3. Kerrie @ TFK

    I hope everyone feels better soon!

  4. Margaret in Minnesota

    Oh no! Well, you're not alone. My daughter threw up in the middle of the night as well–spaghetti, because isn't it almost always spaghetti?

    You'd think I'd know not to serve marinara in the midst of the flu bug season.

  5. Mary

    Hope you are feeling better!

  6. Anne

    Hope you are all up and feeling well soon! God bless you as you care for your sick little ones.

  7. Kathleen@so much to say, so little time

    Ewwwww….my deepest sympathies. Hope everyone else stays well.

  8. Christine the Soccer Mom

    Hope you're all feeling better ASAP! I'll add your family to my intentions list.

  9. Amy

    Awww–hope everyone's feeling better soon.

  10. Young Mom

    Ugh! We just had the killer flu over here all last week. I'm hoping that we can saty healthy for a little while.

  11. This Heavenly Life

    Hope you all feel better soon! Sick isn't the best way to enter a weekend πŸ™

  12. Sheila @ Seasoned Joy

    Sympathies on the stomach bug. I am somewhat terrified of when that will eventually happen to us.

  13. Heather of the EO

    ACK. Sorry about the bug. Bug be gone!


  14. Patty

    God bless you Jen as you care for you sick family. Of course I know you know God uses these types of things to mold us into the saints he wants us to be. My prayers are with you and yours.

  15. Dorian Speed

    I'm so sorry to hear about the stomach bug! I hate it when we all get sick close to a weekend, because it ends up being a "lost weekend." On the other hand, I hope this means your husband will be home over the weekend to help with the laundry, etc. (And that neither of you gets sick. And that everyone is better by tomorrow so that the whole weekend-sickness thing isn't even relevant).

  16. Anonymous

    Hope everyone feels better soon! πŸ™‚

  17. Abbey

    You are certainly forgiven! So sorry about that nasty bug … my grandson was hit the other evening and I mean it was a mess. He was crying and was so upset. He's 9 and he threw-up 8 times in 2 hours. Praying the rest in your home will not be infected, and that the sick ones will recovery soon!

  18. Owner of Homeschool Faith and Family Life Website

    UGH…hope all are well soon!
    Thanks for taking the time to set up the link in spite of your circumstance!

  19. Kim

    Oh no! So sorry the plague has reached your house! And missing your Quick Takes…see you next Friday!

  20. That Married Couple

    Oh dear, hope you all feel better soon!

  21. ChrisV

    Oh no! Feel better soon!

  22. Tina

    This is such a fun event, I've been meaning to take part for ever so long. Your dedication to posting is inspiring! Feel better soon. πŸ™‚


  23. Hen Jen

    groan, the stomach thing is not fun..hope the recovery is quick, and that not all of you get it!

  24. ~liz

    i hope it's gone by the weekend. which is now! πŸ™‚ feel better…

  25. Meredith

    I actually had childcare lined up for Adoration this morning, until I got that fateful call from the school nurse…

    May your stomach virus be weak and quick, Jen.

  26. martianne

    Oh, I so feel for you. The bug has made it's rounds here this week, too. Peace, blessing sand a return to good health be with you!!!

  27. Sarah

    I hope your family is feeling better!

    I posted my quick takes on Thursday night, because I've given up the computer on Fridays during Lent. Because of this little fast, though, I wasn't able to link until now …

    Take care, and God bless.

  28. Michelle Potter

    I hope everyone is feeling better by now (as I write this on Monday)! I really need to start doing 7 Quick Takes again.

  29. Mary@Holy Mackerel

    The stomach bug's here too…gotta love these viruses!

  30. Amy

    The stomach bug hit here, too. Perhaps it started in Lucy and Reese's classroom. πŸ™

  31. Tammy@If Meadows Speak...

    I just found your blog from Elizabeth Esther's page. So glad to 'meet' you and look forward to 'following' your journey. πŸ™‚

  32. Jennifer

    Sorry to hear that! I love your 'quick takes' idea… I hope to participate sometime! You have SO many great things on your blog, I will be coming back soon to look around!
