Anyone still out there?

I have been a horrible blogger lately.

Honestly, I can't believe it's been over a month since I sat down and typed.

Sickness has been in the house of Not The Path I Chose...lots of sickness.

It started 3 weeks ago, when Miss O. came down with a fever that I couldn't get to break. Almost a week and 2 doctor visits later, she was diagnoised with strep throat. The poor little girl still isn't her energetic self.

About a week into Miss O. feeling cruddy, Big Boy started to have a runny nose and low fever. At first, I thought he was just teething, but then he started waking up multiple times a night and not wanting to eat. Poor little guy was just miserable, full of congestion and not happy. That lasted about a week and a half...he's still waking up in the middle of the night, but overall is eating again and feeling better.

Now...I've got the crud.

Since last Tuesday, I've had the weirdest cold ever. It started with a headache, body aches, and scratchy throat. Then my ears started to hurt and the throat became sore. I can't get enough sleep. Mornings are better, I feel almost normal but by 4, 5 o'clock in the evening it hurts to swallow and my ears ache. I'm trying to tough it out, but I really just want to feel normal again.

I'm reading blogs, but struggling to find time to comment. I was even given an award, that I've yet to find a way to sit down, share and pass along. My goal is to catch up soon and try to stay ahead of the game.

So, how are you?


  1. Life happens sometimes. Post when you can and know we are here waiting for you when you do! Sorry everyone has been down with the sickness. Hope you feel better soon.

    Miles is trucking right along. His 2nd bday party is in the works. WHAT?

  2. I hope the crud leaves your house soon!! Get well!

  3. I hope the bug (what we call being sick) goes away! I hear on the being busy. We're good here. How about this for being behind--I'm writing out thank you cards from the gifts we've received. I should have done it awhile ago--but I would rather sleep when they sleep. Sending you germ be gone wishes!

  4. Aw, I undestand the sick house thing. When it hits one of the boys at our house, they both usually end up with it and then pass it along to one if us. Boo!

    The babies are so precious though. Those sweet big girl cheeks and precious big boy smile. Amazing!

    I hope we can all catch up someday. Until then, we'll all just keep plugging away one day at a time.

  5. We've been passing things around our house too...

    Hope you are all better soon!!

  6. Oh no!! I've got something similar at the moment. It must be so hard to feel really functional and care for the kids! Just update when you can, I am still reading :)

  7. You post when you can. We'll read when you post - simple ;)

    Hope everyone gets better in your household soon honey.


  8. ugh, the creeping crud... I hope it passes for you soon. It's rough.

  9. It's good to see a post from you. Sorry you've got the crud though.

    Hope you feel better stat!

  10. You and me both! On the not blogging and on the sickness. We've had pink eye and the tummy bug. It's so awful to be sick and care for babies. I hope you're all better now and that spring brings good health.

    Seriously, I can't remember if you went back to work or not and even if you did, I just don't know how everyone with chilren find time to blog. I think I have a post brewing on that...

  11. As you can tell, I'm WAY behind on reading blogs. :) Hope you're feeling better by now! I had that crud off and on for 6 weeks ... ugh.
