Mommy, I Don't Feel Good

12 December 2008
It's that time of year again...the time of year when I have so much to do that it makes my head spin! In the middle of all the holiday hustle and bustle, it is inevitably the time of year when my kids get sick. The will bring home colds, flu, stomach viruses...they aren't really picky.

This week it was my DD who was home for two days with the stomach virus. That would be bad enough, but she became ill right after I'd had a very complicated tooth extraction on Monday, so I wasn't feeling really great myself. She is much better now. But, my jaw is still throbbing, I have to take Tylenol every four hours, and yesterday it became clear that DD had shared her stomach bug with me. Joy! So, I'm hoping to get better soon. My precious friend Lenore came over several times yesterday to check on me and take care of me. I don't know what I'd do without her!
I have more icky dental work on Monday, possibly another extraction and the pain I'm in now is making that seem like a really rotten idea.

So, this has been my week. I am still feeling quite queasy this morning, so I plan to try to eat some crackers or something so I can take my meds, then go back to bed for a bit. I just have to get past the morning rush first. Those are my bedmates in the pic :-)

I sure hope the weekend goes better than the last 5 days!
