Excused or Unexcused Absence?

Okay, so here's my excuse for being the 2nd lamest blogger in the world. (First prize going to my sister, Gina)

Last Thursday, Matthew came home from school with a fever of 99.8. That evening it was almost 103 degrees. He was sick for almost a week and I took him to the doctor. Diagnosis..Walking Pneumonia.

Fast forward to this Thurday. Nicole came home from school with a faver of 99.7. That evening it was just over 102. Last night it's still burning out of control. I called the doctor, she starts antibiotics today. Just to add another element of scary, Nicole has a low tolerance with it comes to fevers and she actually seizes between 101 and 102. It is a MIRACLE that she has not been in t he hospital.

So, needless to say, I'm not really concerned about the blog, facebook, or dinner at the moment. I just need my kiddos to return to their funny selves and then we can move on!

Hopefully that will happen soon. Until then, I'll try to find something to take a picture of that is not my kids with flushed cheeks and bright red lips, looking really pathetic.

Oh, on a happier note, I did 7 loads of laundry yesterday, I threw away 3 garbage bags full of stained and holey clothes, filled another garbage bag with good outgrown clothes for my friend, and I filled 2 18 gallon bins with winter clothes. On top of that, I mated 110 pairs of socks. It is amazing what you find with you clean under the kids' beds!!



  1. haha, i thought I had first place in the lame blogger contest for posting pictures of animals. I hear you love love love animals...


    Sorry again to hear about the kiddos. You just want to pick them up and make it all better but it doesnt work that way unfotunately.

    so, this is to the kids... Feel better fast!

  2. Your poor kids! I hope they are feeling better. We'll keep them in our prayers. And a pat on your back for all your accomplishments in one day! For me, doing the laundry is all I can do. :)
