I am sick of being sick. LUCKILY Reese has not gotten sick (Knock on wood, cross your fingers, pray a TON)!!! Both Eric and I have been sick for the past week. I don't know what it is. Both of us have coughs, wheezy breathing, headaches, nasal congestion, and lots of sneezing. I had a fever for 5 days, and my throat kills. Luckily the fever is now gone, but I've just had enough of feeling sick. I haven't been sick for so long, so it SUCKS! I'd still been going to school but then yesterday one of my teachers re-emphasized the point that if we are sick we should NOT be coming to school because of swine flu. So I started feeling guilty and decided to email my teachers today and let them know I'd be out the rest of the week. Hopefully it'll all pass by Saturday morning so I can enjoy conference weekend. (Not that I won't if I'm still sick).
Today it has snowed most of the day at our house. I have had to use our pellet stove (our home's source of heat) all day to keep the temperature comfortable. I'm not good at staying inside all day. Reese and I bundled up and braved the weather. We went to town to buy stuff to make homemade potpourri (lemons, oranges, cloves) and stuff to make paninis for dinner. YUM! I miss Eric! He is working an evening job after his normal job each day now and I'm SO grateful that he is doing that so I can stay home with Reese but I do miss him. Reese misses him too. If you're a stay at home mom you might understand this: I swear by 6-ish, Reese is ready for a change of scene. I'm old news, and she is ready to move on to daddy. It is so nice when he gets home because Reese is excited to see him and is able to be entertained for quite a while longer before bed.
