Like Mother, Like Daughter


Now, this is really carrying the "togetherness" thing too far I think! Miss Maddy and I are both feeling a tad bit under the weather this week. :( I must be feeling worse than she does as all I want to do is lie on the couch, watch TV and use about 5 million Kleenex. She still wants to PLAY, go somewhere, do something, even though her little nose is a big mess! I knew it would happen. Just a couple of weeks ago, I was thinking that we had all been remarkably healthy and had not even caught a cold during this cold/flu season. I know enough to never verbalize such a thought, but now I know I must not even think such a thought. We thought we had simple colds for the first week or so, but when it dragged on and got progressively worse, I knew that more than Kleenex and over-the-counter meds were needed. We've both been to the doctor and have sinusitis or whatever they're calling it. So, more Kleenex, more liquids and more chocolate and we'll be good as new soon, very soon (I hope)!

I'm so sorry Janet...please get well soon. And I know how it is when your little one still wants to play and you're sick. I also thought we had got away without getting sick(we managed to get through the month of Feb. healthy) but last week Will had a viral thing, then me and now Miss Grace.

I totally feel your pain I have had it for weeks, Monday and Tuesday were the worst. It is nice to breath out of my nose again. I hope both of you are feeling better soon!

Have a great weekend!

Oh NO....so sorry you are both feeling under the weather.

Hope that you get some rest this weekend....it is so tough when the little ones want to go, go, go, and you just want to go to bed or lie on the couch and rest.

Thinking of you and feel better soon!

You are such a trooper! I can't even believe you were at work today! Hope you and Miss M are feeling better soon! Get some rest this weekend!

Missy said...

Oh no! So sorry you two aren't feeling well!!! Paige and I both have it, too : ( Get rest, sleep well, drink lots of fluids and get better!

Rebecca said...

I know what you mean... as soon as you even THINK "Wow, we've stayed really healthy", you might as well pull out the kleenex right there. :)

Hope you all feel back to yourselves soon!!!!

It's no fun being sick, yucky! I hope you both feel better soon!

Oh, I'm so, so sorry y'all are sick, too! We are still miserable here, although the Tongginator's antibiotics finally kicked in, helping with the ear infection (and strep throat! they called with the test results Friday afternoon! oh joy!). Nothing can help The Dreaded Influenza though. Sinusitis is just as yucky! Y'all feel better soon!

Kristin said...

Oh no! I hope you are both better soon. Stay on the couch, watch trash TV, eat whatever you want, and get healthy!

Im so sorry you guys are feeling bad. It is so hard to be the mommy who takes care of everyone and then be down for the count. It is soooooo hard. I hope you guys start to feel better soon and chocolate is ALWAYS a good idea to help those who need to mend :)

Janet -
Hope you and Maddy are feeling better. I too thought how lucky we all have been to avoid any sickness in our house - I better re-think that one. Hope you are enjoying some warm weather like us - that should make anyone feel better:)

Sharon said...

Oh I hope you feel better!! John and I have been so lucky so far to not catch all the terrible sickness of our B2 people. Bailey ahd the flu shot and is doing well too.

I wish i could think of something to keep her busy while you rest!!!
