We have all been sick sick sick at my house. The oldest had tested positive for strep on Tuesday. Friday night, the youngest got home from school and went right to bed. Then on Saturday, I took him to the doc. While I was there, I started feeling a little scratchy. The doc looked at me and said, "How's Mom?" To that, I whined, "Puny" He felt my glands and prescribed me an antibiotic as well. Then Hubby got home from work. He had been "sick" for two days. So he went to the doc and took Dimples with him, even though he was feeling fine. Hubby tested negative for strep and Dimples tested positive. The poor kid doesn't understand why he feels fine, but has to take nasty drugs to make him "better."

I have not exercised since Friday. I have a bad headache today, but came to school to get away from the group. On top of everyone being sick, we have had another winter weather advisory and the kids have been off of school. I threatened to duct tape them to the school if it got cancelled again today, but decided against it.

The scale has been moving down, mostly because I am sleeping instead of eating. I am hopeful that I will be able to watch Biggest Loser tonight while I walk on the treadmill. I plan to take it really easy. I feel really weak still. When I tried to get into the building, my arm wouldn't make it around the door and I almost fell. If that had happened, I would have gone to the security office to see if I could get a copy of the video!


  1. Hope you're all feeling better soon!

  2. I'm sure with all your antics you are already on YouTube somewhere, but that would be a great addition!

    Feel better soon! (as in before Friday)
