Mommy Can't Be Sick

Well, my throat started hurting last night & I felt sickness coming on. I tried my best to fight it with vitamin C, etc. Oh well. I woke with a splitting head ache, throat on fire, and other problems too. Sweet Rob let me go back to sleep, but when he left for work, it was back to work as usual for me. Yep, had to get the big kids off to school(so thankful for school today!), bags & lunches packed, and coats on. Martha(my sweet mother-in-law) took Ridge while I went to the doctor. I was then able to take a 45 minute nap at her house before I had to get back to Allen to pick up my big kids. My head was throbbing, my body aching, and Ridge whining by the time we arrived at the school. When we finally got home, I called Rob & told him I was going to lay down. That didn't happen. Not sure why I thought it would. But after cleaning up 3 #2 accidents (yes, 3. . . my big kids too), I realized it was really quiet upstairs. I walked up to find Ridge with the markers again. He had colored books and walls purple. He's done it before with a green marker and another time while with my mom:

Anyway, it's now 4 p.m. I just sat down again to try to write this all down. But Ridge is now crying upstairs and Charly has had another #2 accident(that makes 3 today. .. she's now back in diapers). Being is sick is not an option, but I'm sure grateful that I have an antibiotic and can see the end in sight.

Hope you are starting to feel better, friend. I called you last night b/c I heard that you & Rob might be up at Re-Engage but then remembered I had seen on FB that you were getting sick! Praying for sleep & no #2's as well!
