First of all, thanks to everyone who made such lovely comments on my post yesterday. Your kind words definitely helped to cheer me up! I appreciate the support.
Today I am in the process of completely scrubbing down the house. All three of my kids are sick with fevers, coughs, runny noses. They are all huddled together on the couch watching movies. One is finally starting to feel better (thanks, antibiotics!), one is feeling bad off and on, and the other, my youngest, is utterly miserable with a high fever. I am off to the store to pick up anything that he thinks he might like (apple juice and ice cream, although I'll probably go with popsicles).
But the awesome thing is that while I'm at the store, I will still be vacuuming. How, you ask? Because my parents gave me a Roomba for my birthday! Is it so sad that it is one of my favorite presents ever?! While I have been cleaning out closets, doing laundry, giving snuggles to my sickies, the Roomba has been (happily?) motoring around all of the rooms upstairs. It is ridiculous how much I love it. I'm thinking of giving it a name! Now, if they'd only make one that could clean bathrooms, I would be in heaven!
Hopefully, all of the cleaning and the liquids and medicines will help everyone get on the mend. We are on spring break this week, and I definitely want us to be able to do some fun things!
Off to wage more war against germs and then run out to the store. We are all thinking healthy thoughts here!
