Sick Household

Officially everyone in our house is sick including my mom who takes care of the girls. I got this little allergy/cold thing about a week and a half ago and I don't seem to be affected by it much but the girls and my mom were hit pretty hard. The girls sleep poorly when they are congested. Riley uses her thumb as a soothing mechanism and we she isn't able to breathe through her nose, she can't suck on her thumb, making for several times of getting up during the night too sooth her.

Addison has been snotty for the same amount of time as me and she is sleeping through the night with 1 occasional wake up time. My mom just started getting sick Monday night and didn't get much rest so I needed to stay home yesterday to take care of the girls so she could rest.

Then Jesse comes home from work yesterday complaining of a sore throat too. That is the way it started out with me and my mom, so I'm sure he is catching it also. So there you go, a sick house. At least I feel fine with the occasional break to blow my nose.

I hope everyone recovers soon so we can get back to our normal schedule.

On a side note, I am down another pound! Woot!!! I'm down 19.6 pounds in exactly 6 weeks. Maybe it is feasible to lose 5 more pounds before the San Diego trip in 2.5 weeks. Either way, I am very happy with my results. My original goal was to lose 15 pounds before the trip and now I am 5 pounds over that goal. To be down 25 pounds before the trip would be icing on the cake. I plan to start incorporating more exercise and weight training to start toning up my body.

  1. Congrats on the weight loss! Give your dr a call - when Micah was sick and he had hit 1 year old, they told us we could give him a dose of benadryl at night to help with the congestion for sleeping. Sometimes, we also gave it to him at nap time. It made SUCH a big difference helping him sleep again, and I think he was able to get better faster, too, because he was sleeping well.

    I hope everyone starts feeling better soon. - Tkeys
