It's my blogoversary!

Actually, yesterday was my one year blogoversary! Thanks, Just Mom, for the cool made up word. I love it!

I had big plans to do something - a giveaway, a retrospective, a fun compilation of all the first sentences to see what kind of funny story that made.

However, it turned out to be one of my top 10 days I hope I never have to repeat.

I have some kind of horrible virus that makes me want to lay on the couch and sleep or cry or stare at the ceiling. Or all 3 at the same time. The kids are asking me questions and I hear the words, but it takes me a full minute for me to have any idea what they are talking about.

We are taking a 2 week vacation from school since Neighbor Girl is off-track, but not much visiting is going on. I guess it's good I'm not trying to do school right now - but what a waste of a break.

Both kids have pink eye in both eyes. Little Man has a terrible cough. Last night was the first night in over a week that neither child got up in the night.

We did go to the doctor yesterday and found out that except for the pink eye, there is not much to be done.

I feel only slightly more human today. We are not normally a "sickly" family - and I hate being sick and not being able to do our scheduled activities. We have been passing different things around for about 3 weeks now. I aired out the house on Sunday since it was 57, and we've been Clorax wiping every day for a couple of days now trying to stop the cycle.

Please pray for us that we will get well soon and be able go outside and enjoy some sunshine!

On a brighter note, HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY!

Just Mom said...

Holy cow! What a way to spend your Blogoversary. Sorry.

BTW ... thanks for the acknowledgement, but I didn't make up the word. Actually, I'm not sure who made that word up.

Happy Blogoversary.

Sorry to hear you were all feeling so yucky!! Happy Blogoversary!

(I also wanted to tell you I've only peeked through my e-book. I am one who likes paper, so once I get the 3 ringed paper I will print it out and let you know what I think of the HOW unit study. As I can tell now, I like what I saw.)
