Life Goes On....

Even when mom is sick life must go on....
Went to the doctor this morning. Raw throat, fever, chills, feel bad all over. My self-diagnosis was strep. Last time I had those symptoms I did have strep but not this time. This time it's a sinus infection.
Although I am home sick from work today I had to take Abigail to the orthodontist to get two brackets of her braces fixed. She popped them off while eating a ring pop. Can't have hanging brackets -- that is almost as bad as having a hanging Chad. (Can I just say I told her so? But, in the 12 year old mind, mom knows nothing.)
Then I had to go get my prescription and some Sudafed to hopefully give me some relief from my raw throat.
On top of that, this afternoon I have eye doctor appointments for Jacob and Annah after school. Both kids have been blind too long to cancel and reschedule. Do you suppose they will mind me showing up in their waiting room wrapped in three blankets and my teeth chattering?
I just need to crawl back under the covers and sleep another day or two.
P.S. I really do have paragraphs in this but Blogger is being weird and won't hold on to my spacing. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :)

No fun to be sick, but you are right...life for mom keeps going...
HOpe you get feeling better soon, and we hope Tim's throat surgery goes well. Miss you guys!

Get well soon! There is no stopping for sick. Fortunately I think moms have a pretty tough immune system.

Ah yes. Blogger being weird always seems to be the case.

"esophagus stretched so that the opening is wider" - OUCH!! Poor kid!
