Won’t stop crying.
And that’s just the baby.
I Can’t stop coughing. Can’t breathe. Can’t sleep. Can’t seem to shake whatever it is we all have.
Like I said yesterday on my personal Facebook page, I’m sick of being sick. I’m sick of my kids being sick. And I’m throwing myself a good ole pity party.
Then I remember it could be so much worse.
My son could have passed away last month.
Or my husband could have been killed in a car accident over the weekend, leaving me alone to raise our children & missing him so badly.
Every minute of today has me working through my gratitude list, so I can stay positive. So I can do my next best thing. So I can take care of my kids, take care of myself.
This is just temporary, it may be hard, but all things considered it is very small. By this time next week, we won’t even remember how difficult it has been the last five days.
We’ll get there.
How do you handle sick days?
The one Christmas all 4 of us were vomiting non-stop, running fevers, and not sleeping our living room turned into a big mattress of blankets and pillows and we watched entire series of tv shows (yes more than one show more than one season each). Poweraid and sprite flowed freely. It was the only way to survive that Christmas!
What have you found yourself doing that you wouldn’t normally with the kids being so sick for so long?

I’ve been on my computer a lot, when lately I’m never on it. Now that the kids are the up & up, Lboy is able to distract himself more & the baby I can pass off to Todd when he’s home. It’s a good thing she is so sweet natured, otherwise it could be much harder!
The one New Years we did not go in vacation we all were hit with the stomach flu of the century. We were all so pitiful, one sicker than the other. At the time we were living in a tiny NY apartment with one bathroom. I will spare you the details but you get the idea.
It is good to keep it all in perspective and I believe in the community here to get that support we need.
Hope you all feel better soon… sending some healing thoughts your way.
Thanks again for the follow today and sweet comment on my little blog.

Thank you! And thank you for stopping by! I really did love your blog, it’s so cute!
That sounds like a terrible New Years! At least you could feel like you had [hopefully] had the worst that the new year could offer!
