This has been my life for the past couple of weeks. Somehow, somewhere, I managed to pick up a nasty bug which basically kicked my butt.
In addition to Strep Throat, I had a nasty cough. The doctor gave me medicines which helped, but they also wiped me out and made me sleepy. I lost my voice, which is terribly frustrating (although I'm not sure that the kids minded me not being able to yell at them), and now, due to the constant hacking and coughing, I have pleurisy.
But...I think I'm starting to get better. Even though I still don't have a voice.
Anyway, what I'm trying to tell you here is that I'm not really sure what I've missed the past couple of weeks...due to the constant hacking and coughing and sleeping.
The Boy has been busy with college application essays and cross country meets and homework.
The Princess has been busy with dance workshops every weekend and has a dance concert at her school this weekend.
Mr. Wonderful has been busy being wonderful and picking up the slack and driving carpool for his sick wife and picking up prescriptions and cough drops. He's been Mr. Mom.
I don't know how I would have gotten through the past couple of weeks without the help of Mr. Wonderful, and the driving abilities and helpful attitude of The Boy, and the fabulous family spirit at The Princess's dance studio which allowed me to continue sleeping off the meds while The Princess's dance family stepped in and took her to her workshops so that she didn't have to miss them.
Hopefully, this vicious nasty bug from Hell is on it's way and I'll be back to myself soon...but thank you to everyone who stepped in to help. You're awesome!
