Put me out of my misery!

Ugh, I hate being sick. And normally I’m not, but these past couple of months I’ve just been bouncing from one infirmity to another. I’m not sure if it’s stress related or because I have kids that have to touch everything they come in contact with in the outside world, or maybe maybe my little antibodies are taking a holiday. Who knows. Whatever the reason, I’m getting really tired of dealing with it.

First it was bronchitis that lasted for a good two weeks. I finally went to the doctor and got on antibiotics, and started doing better. At the tail end of that, I must have caught some kind of cold from the kids that wreaked havoc on my sinuses. Every time I drove down the big hill to the freeway, my head would congest so much that I felt like I was deep-sea diving. And that lasted for a good 2 1/2 weeks before I could get my ears to pop!

Then just yesterday I woke up with either a 24-bug or food poisoning, I really don’t know which one. And I’ll spare you the gory details, but it was draining. I’m just eternally grateful for my mother-in-law who came and whisked my boys away for an overnight stay so that I could stay home and get some rest. Really, I don’t know what I would have done without her. I’m grateful to be the beneficiary of such kindness.

And now, it’s on to the rest of the day filled with preschool, meetings, planning for an upcoming church Christmas dinner, and lots of other things.

Maybe one of those things should include Lysol’ing the entire house. I’m pretty much at that point by now, haha.
