Our household seems to have spiraled into a vortex of contagion and general yuckiness. We've been sick since before Christmas. First it was flu for the four of us, then a series of colds that are still working themselves through the family, then I had an extremely unpleasant emergency gyn appointment. (Dislodged IUD removed without anesthesia. Yes it is as horrible as it sounds.) Then yesterday we brought the kids to the doctor for what turned out to be pinkeye.
Today the kids and I still have wretched colds and are now developing coughs. S is well enough to care for us all, and thankfully didn't have to go into campus until 8:30 p.m. tonight.... but the moment he left, BB decided she didn't want to sleep in her crib for more than 10 minute at a stretch. She's dozing in my lap as I type.
Oh, and this morning the annual invasion of the ants occurred. Happens every winter rainy season at least once, but every time I'm shocked and appalled by their appearance. This time it was a dribble of honey in the baking cabinet that drew them in, so I spent the morning clearing all that out and hacking up phlegm.
What was that I was saying about 2008 being a good year....??? Enough already!!!
