We are sooooo sick.....

Just a quick post to update you on the week's happenings. Sorry I haven't posted--I've been getting some grief from some of you about it.
:-)

We are one sick little family. We all have either a bad cold or the respiratory flu. Sore throats, fever, sore muscles, bad coughs, stuffy heads...poor little Sophie's eyes are bright pink and she has an ear infection. She's on antibiotics for her ears and eyes.

Brent is home for the third day in a row today. The first day he had to stay home because I was too sick to take care of the kids alone, and then he came down with it later that day. I worked from home yesterday, and will probably have to tomorrow.

We missed out on such fun things this week! My dad was going to come down one day to spend the day, my friend Mary was bringing Sophie and I lunch one day, MAPS had a movie night, and this morning the kids and I are missing MAPS. Bummer!! The highlight of the week has been my friend Jessica bringing us dinner last night. She's such a blessing to us.

I'm off to make hot spiced Tang tea (have you had this before? Yummy!). Brent said his mom used to make it for him, and he promises me that our throats will feel better. I'm game!!

I feel for you! LOTS of that going around. We had no school today b/c of the weather... but I think it's a good thing with the # of kids out sick. We need vacation from each other. Yesterday, I started feeling poorly (watery eyes, runny nose, sound like a perculator) and felt like I could've slept all day. Hope you feel better soon!

p.s. I discovered that kids today do share... THEIR GERMS! I've been coughed on so much this last week or two I'm surprised I don't have a major bug. Am glad I got the flu shot this year tho... my aunt Melodie has been out sick over a week. :-(

I wondered if you were sick. :-( Sorry to hear you're all feeling so awful! Hope you're able to get some rest & feel better soon.
