Last week didn't count

This last week and a half was mostly comprised of a family-wide sinus infection, bronchitis, ear infection, migraines, suspected viral conjunctivitis, constant oil diffusing, allergies, nightmares, doctors visits, carts full of medicine, sleepless nights, labored breathing, endless cough drops (sometimes four at once), the saddest little hoarse cries, nausea, late-night prescription runs, 3am relentless baby kicks, bad weather, overwhelming deadlines, and taxes. haha
Martin's also been working hard at preparing mentally and physically through all of this for his body-building competition next weekend , and I had a very anti-climactic ending to my first #whole30 by drinking a cup of hot chocolate that I couldn't even taste:( All in all this has definitely been the most trying week in a long long time, and I'm declaring a do-over.haha

On the brighter side I have been able to do a bit of sewing, the sun is shining through the sheer curtains promising a beautiful day, we were able to snag a bunch of grenery and flowers on sale to add some Spring to the house, and even though I still can't breath or keep from coughing, several of the kids are showing signs of overcoming this 'black plague' as we've dubbed it, so that's a big big blessing.

Anyway's here's to looking forward to a new week, to fresh starts and fresh goals, to modern medicine and natural remedies alike, and to finally being able to sit at my computer and catch up a bit on emails and things. Thanks for hanging around through last week, and I hope we all have a great one ahead!

  11. Positive vibes you all are on the up and out! We were also hit with the black plauge however it was every single male in my house and not me. Meaning I was taking care of all 3 boys and in turn now I feel run down and they are all fine and dandy now!
