Still kicking, but barely....

I know the winter sickness has been going around as I've read on several of your blogs. I was hoping it would skip us this year but to no such luck. I got influenza and bronchitis last Saturday (a week and a half ago) and now my two little ones have had it all week. We've been to the doctors 4 times since that Saturday and have kept the pharmacy in business this last week. The girls have croup on top of their bronchitis so we've had to go in and get steroid treatments to keep their swelling down. Avery also has a bladder infection so we had to go back for that! We're all on antibiotics and our kitchen counter looks like a fully-stocked medicine counter.

I had some codeine cough syrup for the night, but after it made my heart race and caused hallucinations all night, I got rid of it. I was pretty scared as I've never had that happen to me-especially since my hallucinations were of murderers in my room and me zipping myself up in a body bag. How strange, huh? I've never been a medicine taker, and this week has just validated why.
What a fun week! I usually am pretty healthy and keep going even when I'm sick, but this time it's knocked me on my butt. I spent three days in bed and still don't have all my energy back. The worst part about this is I had to miss the boot camp class I signed up for at the gym and wait til March to start it. AAHH! I swear the universe wants me to be fat forever!

I hope everyone else is staying healthy or else starting to feel better! Just know you aren't the only one who has stayed in your jammies all week and let your house fall apart! Or maybe I'm the only one cause the rest of you are superwomen!

NOT FUN!!! Sorry! Although if it makes you feel any better we were back at the doctors again today too. Dang weather- making us all sick! I hope your household recovers soon!

Oh yuck! Being sick is not fun. I do recommend taking cranberry supplements for the bladder infection and stomach flu - it will keep both away while everyone else is sick. A little trick I learned from a good friend. Too late for this winter season though. . .

I swear in families with children, when one person is sick the whole family is. I wish I had that excuse for laying around the house for the past MONTH!! So don't feel so bad, at least you had a reason. Hope you are doing good... your kids are still as cute as ever!

Hey girl,

Long time no see, I am sorry that you haven't been doing very good. I haven't been that great of a neighbor. I hope things are better, Don't be too hard on yourself. I am far from superwoman, I am sure that you have heard me yell and scream at my kids in our garage and slamming door the last week, I have had it with them not helping after they just leave messes all over the place.

I think we all need a vacation!
