Okay, I have the Sunday blahs. We are all SICK...AGAIN! I HATE BEING SICK. If you have not read any prior posts about us being sick (you don't have to look far - we're sick all the time), then let me just say that being sick ranks right up there with having a baby without any sort of painkillers. I hate it THAT MUCH. And that's without having other people to take care of. Chase learned this lesson about a week after we got married when I ended up with a sweet "bladder infection." I cried, I moaned, I groaned. I laid on the couch waiting for death to take me at any blessed moment. And that is my preferred method of getting through an illness. So you can imagine that when I'm sick the last thing I want to deal with is my kids being sick. So this morning I decided that I would stay home with the boys. They're both really gross and I've got a killer sore throat. Then I told Chase he'd better tell the missionaries we can't feed them tonight. His response was "Oh, no. We can still do it! I'll do everything." I tried telling him that I just didn't feel like it. After all, it's hard to remain in a stupor on the sofa when you've got eight eyes boring holes in you and asking for referrals. SO I've dragged myself into the shower and I'm just trying to conjure up the energy (and desire) to go blow-dry my hair and put on makeup. Yuck. On top of that we are up to our eyeballs in boxes. The house is completely pulled apart and we're half in and half out of boxes. I hate that, too. Hmmm...I hate a lot of stuff today. I guess I'm just bitter that my day (which started out by watching the Bears and Steelers games and knitting a hot-pink scarf) has reached the point where I've got to be productive. Argh. Anybody got any Calgon?

How classic is the sweet UTI right after the big day! LOL

Hope you all feel better soon.

You guys are sick again?!?! You must be living directly over hell. Hopefully the change of climate with your move to TX will improve your health. Get well.

Chase needs a frying pan conked over his head! Mommies need their rest.

Hope you are all feeling better soon

I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. There is nothing worse than feeling like crap and not seeing the end in sight. I hope you are all feeling better soon !!! ((HUGS))

Yay! Someone else who's bitter and ranting instead of just me for a change... I do hope you feel better soon, though. And we're going to be moving again, too, so I'm feeling your pain there as well. I'll send you an email with a tasty tidbit to cheer you up...
