'Tis the season…

…for coughing and wheezing and headaches and fevers. And we”ve had them all!

I thought we’d been sick for a while.  I knew for a fact that I got sick while I was in Augusta last time and hadn’t been well since.  But I went back to look at something on my calendar and realized that all this hacking and wheezing actually began back on Jan 20th.  Do you realize what that means?  It means that for an ENTIRE month at least one of us has had a sore throat or cough or fever.  Every day for an entire month!  You have GOT to be kidding me.  No wonder I feel like it’s never going to end!  I promise we wash all of our hands frequently.  We drink OJ and take vitamins.  We cover when we cough, and sneeze into our elbow pits.

The most frustrating part about it all is that we’ll go almost a day where nobody seems to have any obvious symtoms.  And then the sun begins to set and we all get snug in our beds and…well, let’s just say that between the baby’s snoring caused by an overly stuffy nose and Lydia’s old-lady-smoker’s cough and Carter’s ever-running nose, I’m amazed anybody sleeps around here!
