Sick of Being Sick

 I am so sick of cold and flu season.

At least one of my kids has been sick for the last 3 weeks and I am done!

Then there are the schools...... at which everyone is also sick.There is a stomach bug going around and part of me is grateful that Makenzie has only been to school three days in three weeks! They had 4 days off, Makenzie was sick, her aide was sick, her aide's kid was sick, and now I am trying to decide if I am just going to keep her home until this all dies down because I am done with sick!!!! 

It is a hard call for me because Makenzie LOVES school! She learns so much but if she gets sick.... which she will because everyone else is sick...... she will be home anyways....... sick...... not healthy. So do I keep her home healthy in hopes of keeping her healthy or send her to school and cross my fingers that somehow she will avoid getting another nasty cold or stomach far this season we have had the "just a virus", the flu times three, strep throat times two, a sinus infection..... have I told you that I am done with sick!?

Other then that life has bee good. Makenzie is happy and all is well!

Tonight I am tired. I have decided to purge the clutter from my house and somehow it looks more like a bomb went off instead of the clean, calm, mess free home I had envisioned. I guess it has to get worse before it gets better right?

Tonight I was also reminded how much love and understanding my boys have for their sister! They are turning into amazing young men and while the last 5 years have been hard they have sure gained so much in the love, compassion, and acceptance department!

I asked Mr. 10 to sit with his sister while I made her bed. This is what I found when I walked back into the room....... priceless!

and then he told me that he wanted to put Makenzie to bed. Other then myself, Mr 10 is the only other person who can get Makenzie off to dream land effectively!

Now I am off to get Makenzie's water and night meds together, fold some laundry and hopefully get some sleep!

Believe.... Prayer Works!
