Muuuaaggggah. Uuuuggggah.

We are all sick with ridiculous coughs, colds, runny noses, ear infections (both the boys have DOUBLE ear infections, sigh) and on top of it I have no voice left. I thought the kids were getting better yesterday, but the coughs came back in full force this morning.

Though, unlucky for me, Little Dude and JR both have their energy levels pretty much back, so I have regulated us to the downstairs family room, where I can lay pathetically on the couch and whisper at them to be good.

Somehow "Be Nice To Your Brother; Share Your Toys" doesn't get the same result when whispered from a frog filled throat while only raising a hand from the couch to wave in the general direction of the toys.

I got a little spoiled over the weekend with my husband AND in laws around to pamper all three of us sick ones, but yesterday and today it has just been me, and I think that is why today I am pretty much dead. And it is only 8 am.

Oh my. I'm going to go lay back down on the couch and watch "Sid the Science Kid".

I'm so sorry. I have a cold right now and yesterday was the worst. It's hard to take care of the kids when you feel that way. Hope you feel better soon. :(

Oh no! I am sorry you are sick. If you're congested, try making tomato ginger soup. I basically take a can of crushed tomatoes, a little bit of water or chicken stock, and liberally grate fresh ginger into it. Simmer for 15 minutes or so, and then eat it plain or over rice. The ginger does wonders for making breathing easy again. Feel better soon!

I am so sorry to hear you are sick. I called yesterday and then checked you blog and realized why you did not answer your phone. We have been trying to get all of the yuck out of our house as well!! We will talk later once you feel better.
Let me know if you need anything. I know it has to be hard with Bill gone.
