The conference and the flu have absolutely NOTHING to do with one another. One thing at a time…
I have the blessing of being on the Write2Ignite conference team this year. I’m the website/blog admin and it has been a fun experience for me as well as a learning one! If you are interested in attending our conference in February, please check out our website Write2Ignite and our blog Fire It Up!
I mentioned yesterday that my two of my kiddos have both had fevers for the last few days. They’ve also had sore throats, congestion, fatigue and are feeling rotten.
The Nurse Practicioner checked the younger for strep and noted that the middle one has a sinus infection, but did NOT check either for the flu even though they had flu-like symptoms (especially the younger). I appreciated her reasoning. She said if it IS the flu, there is nothing to do but wait it out and treat the symptoms, keeping them comfortable.
As of right now, my youngest is snuggled up in bed watching cartoons and the oldest is working on her schoolwork (we homeschool) while coughing and developing a sore throat. The middle one is still coughing, stuffy and sickly — but no fever as of this moment.
Can I just say, that as much as I love Autumn and Winter, I despise the sickness that sometimes accompanies it?
*sigh* And now I must go to the store for more Motrin. I actually ran out.
It’s Monday! And guess what? I love Mondays. Yes…I do! I know it’s weird. Most folks hate them.
But for me, Monday is like a mini-New Year’s Day. I love waking up and knowing that I have a brand new week ahead of me. I also love that Monday is the one day of the week I don’t have a full plate. I can stay home (and catch up on laundry, blogs, Monk and dishes) or I can gather up my little chickadees and take them where we decide to go. If I’m feeling extra spunky, I’ll do both! So what will I do today? I’m sure you’re dying to find out. Here’s my plan:
Fold mini-mountain of clothes on my bed and pair up socks while catching up on Monk (and maybe Psych).
Celebrate Columbus Day with my kiddos by chatting about all the OTHER folks that discovered our country first. We’ll also chat about the real Columbus versus the watered down version we read about in history books.
Make out a menu for the week. (White chicken chili is at the top o’the list!)
Make out an exercise routine for the week on my new Wii fit Plus game. That thing rocks!
Enjoy the rain!
What do you have on your plate for this beautiful Monday?
