We finally got the illnesses that have been going around. I think we got pretty lucky compared to what others had. Only two of my kids got sick and only with fevers. I say only because I rejoice in the fact there was no throwing up or major coughing going on through the night. Our cure for a fever- let it work its way out. It is obviously a way of our body telling us there is something going on. My two that were sick did a lot of sleeping, resting, and drinking water. We took a few natural remedies to help in the dire times of that feverish discomfort.
Due to this hiccup last week I did not get any of my preparing done (except cooking the rest of the beans I had which are now almost gone) and did not get to expand on some upcoming posts. Now I am playing catch-up with the laundry and cleaning, my family blog, and trying to find that energy that I think walked out the door when I had my third kid. :)
I love when life gets in the way-- truly I do. I sat and looked at my three girls last night (little guy was off entertaining himself) and told them how much I love them. Despite the melt downs, lack of listening, mischievous behavior. The good out weighs the bad and they are growing up into -fun- young ladies.
