So I will forewarn anyone reading this. This is going to be a complainer post. I typically try to be upbeat & positive when posting about the life and times of the trio because most of you don't want to hear the crappy stuff! But rest assured this journey is not all hearts and flowers. There are crappy days! Many.
The day after I returned from Florida I got a scratchy throat and a cough. Over the next 5 days that escalated to full-on fever, ear ache, nasal congestion, jaw pain, coughing, and a sore throat. I just could not be more miserable. And unfortunately when you are the mommy of 3 active toddlers you just have to push through. There are no "sick days" from being mommy. I just want to put on some sweats, eat some homemade stew, and watch Lifetime movies from my bed all day. I did finally go to the doctor for meds after using OTC remedies for several days so I am on the good stuff now. The other bad part is Sarah has been recovering from a cold, Kurt has had a touch of a cold, and now Jacob has a stomach virus with vomiting and diarrhea. Needless to say our house is a den of sickness right now. Visitors be ware!
I didn't realize how much this sickness had given all five of us some "cabin fever" as well. Tonight Kurt decided to take Lucas to go pick up my meds from the pharmacy and suddenly Jake comes flying down the stairs shouting "Jake ready too, Jake ready too". He pitched a fit to go to the store too so we decided to all go. While out we went to the local Chinese place for supper. I can't remember the last time I've sat down at a Chinese restaurant in lieu of take-out. It was really nice. The kids had fun and the waitress slipped them a handful of extra fortune cookies. I think the outing was good for everyone's mood.
Why I'm not stepping on the scale
