I'm tired of EVERYONE being sick!

This post is really boring and full of me venting about my horrible week. If you don't read on I will not be offended. It is pretty bad!

So I was all prepared for a quiet week at home with projects planned and a terrific housecleaning goal when both Emma and Tyson got incrediblly sick overnight!!! So Monday we spend recovering and I laying on the couch so tired because I was up all night with a teething, coughing baby. Everything went well that night to I had hope for Tuesday. I got the kids bundled up tight because it is so stinking cold, put them in the car and turned the key when NOTHING HAPPENED!!!! Thats right, now my car didn't work. I was really frustrated. Then my throat started to burn. I have never had such a sore throat before in my life plus I felt like crap! So, Tuesday when Stan he convinced me we needed to vote and it would take no time at all. HA HA!! This is the really kicker, at 6:30 there was a line that went around the inside of the school! 2 hours later we got home. Yes and we even took the kids. They were troopers but I sure wanted to throw the towel in and say "Who cares!" But if you know Stan, you don't tell him that!! I guess we all have our things we are passionate about but I never thought I would marry one who cared sssssooo much about politics!

So Wendnesday I thought things could not get any worse, oh I was wrong!!! I lost my voice and the doctor had no oppointments until 4:30 on Thrusday!!! But my car was now fixed and things were great if I felt I could muster enough energy to go anywhere with two kids. Thrusday we went to the doctor and said there is nothing he could do. I don't have strep, flu or anything he could care enough about to discover. But my throat STILL hurts. Sometimes I really don't like doctors. Today things are a little better now that my voice is somewhat back but I cannot yell downstairs for anything which I am sure Emma is pretty happy about. Now the real kicker is Stan is getting sick. It is really not fair when guys get sick because they can take the day off from work and lay in bed and sleep the day away. But when the mom gets sick they still have to clean the house, cook dinner, change diapers that smell worse than throwing up, and entertain children. I sure wish I could say in bed and sleep all day!

Oh by the way there is a bit of good new to add to this post, I am pregnant! Finally three months and I no longer feel the desire to throw-up!!! We had a untrasound last week and all looks great. We will be having the baby at the end of August. Let's hope it is a decently cool summer. Sorry for the venting. More pictures as soon and I can remember where I put the camera.

Congratulations. That is so fun, the pregnancy I mean. I knew you were pregnant, the end of January, at least I assumed so from your last post. When you said that the day you looked forward to most was sometime in August. I couldn't figure out what it could be other than that. So congratulations. How do Emma and Tyson feel about it?
I am sorry you guys are sick. The sick bug has been floating around here as well. I am glad you are at least starting to feel better.

Congratulations Heather! And don't worry about venting. That's what a blog is for (at least for me). Sorry for such a nasty week.

Congratulations! Are you going to find out what you're having this time or leave it a surprise? I'm sorry you've been sick. I hope it all passes soon.
