positively losing my mind....

here are a few thoughts from me today on this beautiful day. it is 74 degrees and sunny! i love it what a difference a week makes. last week we had just come out of a snowstorm and we were having fridgid temps. i would much rather have this weather around, wouldn't you?

i have about had it with the cold weather! i hope and pray it will stay away. i am so ready for spring. i am so tired of being stuck in the house. i have been really really good about staying home a lot with a new baby and winter weather. but i am so ready to be out and about a little more. with all of that said...

i have been stuck at home this week because of a sick kiddo who has strep throat. my oldest has been running a fever for several days. no complaints of a sore throat though. just a headache. today we were at our fabulous pediatricians and our doctor tested him for strep and it is positive. lovely.

we return from our trip to the peds and to target for his prescription and diapers and everyone is on meltdown, including myself. i hurry to give them lunch, feed the baby while talking on the phone to my lifeline. seriously, i don't know what i would do with out my "bff" and our phone calls! i am realizing i don't feel so great myself. i am positive i do not want to get sick! i can't get sick. it isn't so good around her when momma is sick.

so, i attempt to get the boys to take a nap. josh demands he is too old for a nap. i demand that he is sick and must get better - so take a nap! jesiah gets out of bed several times before he crashes. the baby starts to cry, ready for her nap. i am positively losing it. i just want to sit down on the couch and catch up on some blogs and emails. i am positive if they don't all settle down i am going to run away.

finally, i get the boys and the baby to sleep all at the same time! praise God. this is seriously positive and i am loving life right this second. i am positive i can keep my sanity for atleast another hour or so. the house is quiet, i only her the birds chirping and the wind blowing. truly lovely.

now i can have some peace and quiet. pray away my sickness. read some blogs. and figure out why my five month old has been waking up at night to nurse - every. three. hours. she didn't even do that when she was a newborn.

i am off and away to the blogosphere...

I'm feeling your pain. (not with 4) but with two sick ones and trying to fight it myself. exhausting. with no sleep you can't stay healthy and they eat you alive. lol hope your day is better today. :)

I can so relate to your situation with dr.'s offices, shopping, whiny sick kiddos and feeling like you're at the brink. I agree thank goodness for best friends who really save us and keep us safe. I always tell my husband, "You are SO lucky I have her to talk to!" BTW I found you via SITS. Hope you are having a good week!

Does it help if I say we've all been there in one way or another? I know I have and luckily I have Amy to call to talk me down. :)
