The flu, the cough, the runny nose....

The kids were all home last week with one form or another of sickness. Coughing, fevers, headaches, runny noses, thankfully no puking. There's a lot of this gunk going around lately and it sounds like lots of people have it. Now that we've had our turn I hope it stays away for a while. I love being mom but when my children are cranky and ornery because they aren't feeling good I just wish they'd sleep it off. The first 2 days they were home they did just park themselves in front of the tv with their blankets, but once they started feeling better it was constantly a fight.

There really hasn't been much new going on at our house. still need to put up molding in my bedroom and the ceiling up in my bathroom. But that takes money and money is something we don't have at the moment. Our gas fireplace in the family room decided to die, that is the lone source of heat in that room, of course we can't afford a new one. Michael would like to put in a wood burning stove there but we don't have the money for that either. Work has been slow for Michael, well not just slow they are trying to either fire him or get him to quit. His pay checks have been small and we are getting behind on bills. It's so frustrating. He did put in an application with Savage but after discussing the pros and cons it's better for him to stay put at RNI and hope that nothing else happens there.

Some days I just want to stay in bed and not have to face the world.
