Sick Day

Today, the kids are super sick and we are homebound for the week I foresee. So, without the gym, church, preschool, etc., I am really thankful for routine and chore charts. Otherwise, I think I would be saying, "What do I do with myself and all these sick kids?"

Today, after taking Caden to the doctor for another bout with croup--steroids and breathing treatments, here we go again!-- we came home and everyone slept--well, except me.

I am still seeking out our next residence through prayer and internet research. My soul just will not rest about this for some reason (although I thought last week perhaps it would.) I just have a dream and it won't die...

Here is my latest hopeful property: http://www.coldwellbanker.com/servlet/PropertyListing?action=detail&ComColdwellbankerDataProperty_id=115584261&page=property

Yes, I know it's far from town, but it is so nice and I really like the idea of planning our "trips to town" and making sure we utilize our "car time" for the best. Right now, we pick up and go whenever we please, and it's pretty wasteful. I suppose I could change that without moving an hour out of town...

Anyway, I did a little research, put out a few feelers, and then tackled the kids' room and laundry (my chores of the day.)

I deep cleaned Kya and Wyatt's room and even steam cleaned the carpet. I figured with all this illness, they at least need to sleep in a clean room. I have done five loads of laundry so far and have lots more to do (and fold and put away.) But, it's nice to have accomplished something.

Our child focus of the day is the sickest of the day today, though normally, today would be Kya's learning day.

Off to pick up some prescriptions and make the most of our homebound evening. :) Chicken soup anyone?

Sick days always throw me off, I am not good at recovering either - takes me all week. I would love some soup since your offering and all!
