An attitude fix for 2006

Ok, so I stole the title from Pastor Paul, who (I'm pretty sure) borrowed it from Char, his wife. But I'm in need of an attitude fix...mainly because it's been a lousy week.

For the first time in over 10 years, I have strep or some form of tonsilitis and it knocked me on my rear! My throat felt like I'd been swallowing knives unsuccessfully and just got worse from there. It was hard enough to let Roger go back to work after 2 weeks of having him home, but then to be feeling SO miserable. On top of that, Alex has got a cold...or now it seems it could be strep for him too. Roger's not feeling tip top. And none of has gotten a ton of sleep because of how miserable everyone else is feeling and everyone waking up coughing or sweating or yucky. Copays for the doctors eat up our fun money...but we're not really feeling very fun, are we?

The bright spots
My wonderful mother-in-law Nita who watched the kids on Wednesday and let me sleep in her spare room while she took care of them until evening. Then she came over for a few hours yesterday to give me a break!
My mommy who offered to rock me and give me hot tea with honey in it just like when I was a little girl. I might just take her up on it!

I guess 2006 has to get better...since the start has been miserable.

Thankfully, Alex doesn't have strep, and according to our dr. he may not be capable or catching it until he is closer to 1 year old because of some kind of lining in his throat that hasn't developed yet. Just wish the nurse that insisted I bring him in would have known that.
