We had the twin's birthday party last Sunday and since then, found out that at least 8 maybe 9 people have had flu like symptoms.  My sister in law called Monday to say that she and her husband were sick and that she hoped that the little ones didn't get sick.  Wouldn't you know,  just a couple of days later, I ended up with 100 degree fever and cold symptoms.  Then I found out 3 other people were sick.  Things seemed to be just a 24 hour illness for me, that is until Friday night when I basically came home from work, put the kids to bed and went to bed myself.  I spent pretty much all day yesterday sleeping and resting with a fever again.  I should have gone to bed earlier than I did, but I think I have finally kicked the fever.  Now I just need to get over the cough and the congestion.  The worst is now my husband has it.  I never realized how tough it would be to have kids and be sick.  Thankfully, my body seems to know when I have help and seems to only get really sick on the weekend.

I can't wait for winter to be over.  I am tired of the illness, tired of the snow, tired of the cold.  I just want to be able to open the windows and enjoy the nice fresh air!

  1. Amy, I feel the same way. I'm like a broken record, saying to people that I'm so done with winter, sick of being sick, etc etc. In January, my husband and I both had 4 week head colds, while the boys both had double ear infections. Now, one of my sons has another ear infection and both boys have terrible chest congestion and coughs. I'm just waiting to catch something. I used to be so healthy before kids and rarely got sick! This is all very new to me. So frustrating. I'm counting down the days until Spring.
