It's finally over

Well my six straight weeks of travel with multiple nights away from home each week has finally come to an end, but not without a few casualties.

We are all still alive, but my house, specifically my kitchen table, has seen much better days.  All of our mail and other odds and ends are stacked on top of each other waiting for me to take care of them next week.

Two weeks ago after spending the entire week in Chicago for a work meeting, I came home on Friday afternoon with a fever.  Thankfully Big Sissy saved the day by taking care of me and Little Sissy on Friday night until The Farmer and Bubby got home.  It's amazing what an almost 8 year old can do when their mommy is sick.  The next day, I was diagnosed with strep throat which is never fun for an adult or a kid. 

Bubby and The Farmer battled a fever off and on over the weekend, but everyone returned to work and school on Monday except for me.  I needed one more day to recover.  Unfortunately, when I woke up on Tuesday morning, my eye was glued shut so I had to make another trip to the doctor because I had pink eye

And as you know when it rains, it pours...

Because Tuesday night I ended up at the doctor again with Big Sissy and Bubby.  They were both diagnosed with strep throat.  And on Wednesday, The Farmer fell victim to strep throat.  The only blessing in all of this is that somehow Little Sissy stayed healthy. 

Well two weeks later, we are all finally doing better and I am slowly but surely returning to blogging.  Now, I just have to find my kitchen table.  Photobucket


  1. Hugs to you! Try to take some time for yourself, and maybe have a good friend over for adult conversation and a little help finding that table top. Glad everyone is feeling better.

  2. So glad you are feeling better. Looking forward to the bloggin' mama!

  3. I feel for you!
    We haven't had a rash of strep in this house in about two years (dare I say that out loud?).
    Seems like every fall it sweeps thru here.
    Keep up the hand washing--especially with pink eye around!

  4. Oh my goodness! Glad everyone is feeling back to normal! The same thing happens to my house and kitchen table when I'm away from home. Welcome back to the blogosphere!
