Pity, table for one, please...


I am trying to be a good sport, keep my chin up, buck up, have some patience, but enough is enough. It started on the 4th and has been making its way at a snail's pace around the entire family. We have not been to Mass as a family for the past two weeks and now have had to reschedule our one date night of the summer because the darn phlegm won't leave!!!

Between the toe, the rain and the germs, I can't remember when the last time my kids played outside was which is no big deal for this time of year since we are usually roasting like rotisserie chickens anyway. Our temperatures have actually been fairly mild, but the humidity and the mosquitoes make me think some mornings that I died and went to Houston.


Alrighty... I feel better. Sort of.

Highlight of the day: Gifts from a sweet aunt that were sent to entertain us the last time we were sick! They were delayed in their arrival so we opted to save them for one of those miserable days in July. Oh look... its July.

  1. Make that a pity party table for two! I can't believe it. I didn't realize you had all been sick too. We have been sick since July 6th. Currently it is my turn.

    I pray you are well soon!

    Hey! Aren't you in Texas too? Must be a Texas thing.

    Blessings and prayers from the sickies south of Houston!

  2. I hope you are all feeling better soon!

  3. :(

    I wish I could send you a little chicken soup! I will pray you feel better!

  4. Sorry to hear everyone is still sick. All the rain doesn't make it any better! Praying for speedy recoveries!

  5. Ah, the joys of family life! There is nothing quite so draining as an illness that keeps going around... and around... and around...

    Prayers for your family's QUICK recovery! (and a rescheduling of your date night!)

  6. I am so sorry you are all sick! Summer sickness is the worst! We have had two illnesses this summer and it is just NOT good. I avoided the last one by downing Ariborne like there was no tomorrow!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
