Patience, Patience!

Yesterday was a long day. I spent about 7 hours in the car by the time everything was said and done and we started the day around 5:30am. I have never been more excited for bedtime in recent memory than I was last night!

Elliott had other plans for the evening, however, and managed to wake himself up 3 times between 12am and 6am. I realized around 3:30am that my eyes were/are  hurting, my head was/is throbbing, my throat was/is aching, and my stomach was hurting from all the drainage that was/is pouring down my throat. Guess who is the latest succumber to this never ending virus that continues to make the rounds of our family and friends? This gal.

So, we stayed home from church this morning. In addition to me not feeling well, both boys have streaming noses and a low grade temp. And Pete is just worn out from watching the boys yesterday...writing that sentence made me giggle on the inside so I feel slightly more upbeat now. I'm going to finish cleaning the kitchen before the upswing goes away.


  1. There seems to have been someone passing out the sore-throat/sinus problems at Belle's party last week. Sophie and I must have been in the wrong place and picked up the disease.

    1. This is the area in which I have to be super patient with how close knit our group can be - most of the time, it is wonderful. BUT, when people are sick and they won't quarantine themselves, it takes a lot of effort on my part to not get annoyed when my babies get sick or I get sick. Of course, I realize that sometimes, we're in the carrier monkey stage and don't realize we are sick until after we have accidentally exposed others. BUT, at the same time, I know people who have knowingly brought their sick children to birthday parties as not to disappoint them by making them miss out on the fun. I am just not that kind of Momma. I must be the mean Mom type. ;)
