Sick of sick

So having one sick kid is no fun. Two sick kids is even worse. But having the mom sick at the same time? I found that has been the worst. I guess I just keep thinking that we're almost better, but then I feel worse. Erin's missed two weeks of school, Alex has been sick for 5 or 6 days now and I've had something for over 10 days. Enough already! It's basically been a head cold, sore throat, and fever that's moved down to a chest cold and a nasty, never-ending cough that is so strong I feel like I'm throwing out my back and puncturing a lung at the same time. The worst is the kids when they don't eat or drink anything and lay there moaning on the floor and I feel like I don't have the energy to help them. Jared's escaped the hacking, but he's had a lot of the burden of taking care of everything placed on him lately. I'm sure this will pass soon, but I just had to say I'm sick of being sick!

Looking at these pictures made me remember how happy the kids usually are (hope for the future)

The frosting is the best part of the cupcake
(notice how easy it is to get dirty 5 minutes after a bath)

Alex loves being outside and riding bikes.
He can go out to our patio through the cat flap any time he wants.

I thought the warm weather would help keep you healthy! I can't believe how much sickness we've had in our house this winter either. It's everywhere!

We've had it up here in Virginia too. I just got over bronchitis and am still hacking some. Now Chad has a stomach bug.
