Today is my 6th day with this cold. The cold that came after the most awful stomach virus that has ever hit our family...pre and post tikes. I am OVER it. We have had RSV, fevers, the flu symptoms without the presence of the flu, bronchitis with breathing treatments, ear infections, more fevers, constant runny noses, the most awful stomach virus and kidney stones. Dear Universe.....I have dealt with more than my fair share.....so take your sicknesses and shove it.
My tikes are driving me crazy. And I am not myself. I'm exhausted, I'm irritable, I'm rundown and worn out. I'm OVER IT! Completely over it. I long for the day that hearing my sweet children's voices at a high pitched squeal doesn't remind me of nails being scratched across a chalkboard. I'm sick of being on edge and wanting to just retreat to my room with the door locked. This is not me. I thought about postpartum issues, but I am sure it is more cold and flu season issues. I just want to feel well and while I am at it.....I am sick of my kids being sick. Margot's nose has been a faucet that has been turned on since Halloween, and I am not exaggerating. Poor baby has been so sick she probably has no idea what it is like to feel well and not have a fountain permanently attached to her face.
But despite all these illness that have plagued our family, we have managed to keep it real here.
We have road monster trucks.
And we have gone bowling...
We got a jump start (thanks to garden club) and planted our spring garden.
We have gone fishing.No we don't let illnesses keep us down. I have tried convincing my husband to just blow up the house and build a new one. I'm convinced that is the only way to get all the germs out. Then once our house is rebuilt for insulation I'm going to just a cellophane type thing to keep it germ free. Think that will work? So Internets what has plagued your house this cold and flu season?
