We’re sick. All 5 of us have some sort of a cold at the moment. Emily is over her strep, but still has a cough. She is just about well now. Timothy has a nasty cough and runny nose. They are both on prescription cold medicine. We found out last Friday that Zachary had strep. He is still taking antibiotics. I think it makes him tired, as he has had some pretty fussy times the past couple days. Scott is congested and is having daily headaches. I am congested and have a cough. Even Lucy was sneezing a bit last night. None of us are sick enough to warrant laying in bed all day, so it hasn’t really slowed life down for us. Though I must say that the OTC medicine I have been taking have made me walk around in a daze. I just hope we all get better soon!!
Unfortunately, our house has taken to having a few ailments at this time as well. Our refrigerator just doesn’t seem to be very cool. Poor Scott almost had to put ice into his nightly bowl of cereal as the milk just wasn’t cold enough. Tonight we’ll see what we can do to fix that. We’d really rather not have to call the repairman. And, there is a leak in our hall bathroom faucet. Scott found the problem yesterday, so that should be resolved fairly soon. He just needs to purchase the correct washer to replace the messed up one.
Tomorrow is Parents’ Night Out at church. Twice a year, there is free childcare at the church from 6-9. Generally, parents take the opportunity to go on a date. I’m not sure that is going to happen for us though. Assuming he can get tickets, Scott is planning to go to Canyon for a Bulldog playoff game. I’m thinking I’m going to take the kids to the church and have a little time to myself. A nice soak in the tub could be just what the doctor ordered!
