Unhealthy Ramblings

The last two weeks have been tough and make me look forward to summer break even more! I have been pretty sick and did not go back to work until Thursday this past week. Colt was complaining about his ear so I took him to the doctor on Tuesday and sure enough he had an ear infection. I think that was the first one he has ever had and he did great at the doctor's office so that was nice. I was not feeling that well myself and I had both boys with me so I was hoping it would go smoothly and it went fine. By the time I was feeling well enough to return to work, Dave started to feel sick and then Jax woke up Friday morning with a 101 temperature and threw up all over me right as I was getting ready to go to work. Dave stayed home with both the boys on Friday since I can't really afford to be gone anymore especially since I have no sick days left, every day I miss means I don't get paid. I had a track meet Thursday night in Pasco and then another one on Friday at home. Both nights I did not get home until after 9 which made for a very long day. We are still feeling pretty yucky today, I think Colt is probably the only one that feels completely normal. Dave threw up a couple times today, Jax still has a fever and just wants to be held and I still feel exhausted and achy. I am so ready to feel healthy again, I have hardly worked out in the past 2 weeks which for me means I really don't feel well. In the past even when I was coming down with something I would normally always find time for a workout but I can hardly get myself motivated to even get out of bed these days. This has made me realize just how grateful I am for my health and the health of my family. It is something I have taken for granted and I need to do a better job of getting rest and slowing life down a little bit.

Hope all of you feel better soon. It's hard being sick when everyone else is too. Thank goodness summer is right around the corner.
