I Get By...

...with a little help from my friends. I seriously would be in the shitter without them. They have kept me sain over the past week. From brining my family Sprite and other illness-related goodies to make you feel better (Hi, Judy!), to Starbucks (Hi, Rebecca!), to putting up with all my text messages whining (Hi, Katie!), to chatting with me on Mobile IM (Hi, Renee and Nancy!).....You have totally kept me out of the insane asylum.

In a household with a week like we have had, the house transforms into several different buildings....

1. Triage center...because you seriously think that it's a short-lived emergency.
2. Long Term Care Facililty....when you realize that the shit's just NOT going to go away.
3. Insane Asylum....because if you have to spend one more minute in the germ-infested stench of sick bodies, you just might have to slit your wrists.

And, you, my dear posse of lovely ladies, have made it to where I didn't slit my wrists. You guys deserve a much better friend than me. Love you all!

I will end on a brighter note that we have had minimal fevering over the past two days. Griffin hit 100.5, which is low, but high enough to make him a sobbing miserable mess...and keep him out of school. That was last night, and today we're still fever-free....we'll see what the 4 o'clock hour brings, as that seems to be the witching hour for fever....

Hoping that you are making your way out of it all.

Caitlyn has been sick for about a month now, no fever though thank goodness. And she so graciously shared her germs with me.

That little code I have to write in is "opfzecol" is that german too? Cause seriously it looks like everything else on this damn page.

I have had my own little version of hell here. Not anything curable, just daily life that gets me down.

I can't wait until I'm closer to help out more in person! Hope everyone feels 100% again soon.
