Sick Days

We've been a little sick around Cass House the last few weeks. The children started it off with coughs/fever and missed a good deal of school. Then, this week it has been my turn with a fever/chills. Maybe this would have been a good year to get a flu shot... 

We have an arsenal of medications stacked on the counter. I'm never sure what is most effective so we try everything! I have found that just like the adds say, Aleve does last much longer than Ibuprofen, at least for fever.

I'm grateful for my husband taking the children out to get some dinner when I was at my worst. I guess they would have been gnawing on crackers if he hadn't. And for making the juice, popsicle, herbal tea run :)

But enough about sickness! The sun is shinning it's brightest today - looks like we're in for a warm few days! And we'll be heading to Florida soon! I'm starting to day dream about those lovely beaches....
It's been a year since we've been there, or really had a family vacation and I'm so ready!!
Yay for sunshine!!

Today I'm thankful for a warm house, safety and electricity. I keep thinking about all the people in need because of Hurricane Sandy. Let's remember them in the upcoming months!

Have a happy, blessed weekend everyone!

  1. So glad you are feeling better! It is hard when you are sick and still have children to take care of. At least it didn't happen right before your Florida trip.
