Blech...

I sent my boy to school on Monday and he came home with what I thought to be another round of bronchitis or walking pneumonia. We seem to get that a lot around here. Tuesday we went to the clinic and we came home with Zithromax, yet again. Tuesday night Anna and I got our fevers and thought let's go get some antibiotics for us so Isaiah doesn't have to feel like the odd man out. No such luck for us, however, we have - da da da dummmm - influenza. Excellent. The doctor suspected that Isaiah also has influenza and that he did not, in fact, have bronchitis.

Tuesday afternoon Matthew came home also with a fever, aches, runny nose and a cough. We have had a wonderful week and I'm happy to say yesterday was the worst. I'm pretty sure it's all down hill form here. In a good way, I think?

What really bugs me though is that I was invited to two parties on Sunday and now.... I can't go. I was SOOOOO looking forward to the get togethers. I can't even remember the last time I went anywhere fun, by myself. I get invited to two different fun things and what happens? The flu. Why? Where's the justice in this situation? Honestly I think the last time I went anywhere alone was my sister-in-law's candle party last summer. I'm talking months.

I'm hoping the rest of you are all healthy and have fun for me. I will be sitting in my bathrobe eating my mom's chicken soup and blowing my nose.

I'm sorry--that's no fun! Not fun at all.

And you say it's been months since you went anywhere fun by yourself? My goodness. Here I feel like a martyr when it's only been like a month or so! It's so cliche, but we moms really do need more time for fun and recharging. And, aren't you so so excited to come home to your family once you've gotten away for a bit? :)

Hey, have you considered coming next Saturday (Feb. 2) for the heavenly makeover day at LATTE? I know you said you wanted to wait to visit and such...just a thought!

Oooo! Yes! That would be fun! Come to the Latte Spa Event! Everyone would love to see you! It is from 9-4 and only costs $10.00, which includes lunch! It would be so relaxing for you- Please Come! Maybe we can secretly arrange for you to get one of the Spa centerpieces to make you feel better- Shhhhhh (:X)

That may be the only weekend my husband and I have to celebrate Valentine's Day. We have stuff going on the weekend before and after Valentine's.

I do look forward to coming home but that's just how life goes sometimes. It makes me really appreciate the times I do get to venture out that's for sure. Thus my major disappointment for missing the two fun things on Sunday.

Thank you for the invitation and if it works out I'll come but, Matthew and I haven't gone out in months either. Pathetic, I know.

Not true, Katie. I saw you guys at Walmart.

Good thing you can still stay in contact with the computer eh?

Get well!

Okay you caught me, Matthew and I did go on date....but it was Walmart and at least 3 months ago. I didn't think Walmart counted, although we did see Kelli...
