We have been sick more often than healthy here at chez Gillan for the past, er, mmmmh, six months.
It is June!!!
We are supposed to be enjoying the healthy days of sunshine and fresh air. Instead, we are outside with runnynoses, intermittent fevers, wierd rashes, cranky attitudes, no appetites and on very disturbed sleep. The past 2.5 weeks have been particularly ghastly, non-stop illness. I'm miserable, the kids are completely unpredictable from one day to the next. And right in the middle of that Andrew came down with a wicked illness that left him totally incapacitated for 4 days. So I was single parenting my way through this misery.
Need back up!! Send in the reinforcements!!
Really all I need is for my kids to be healthy. I can handle things ok as long as they are healthy but we truly have been sick more days than not since January. I'm questioning my ability to continue working. I'm questioning my choices.
I need consistent sleep. I need a break. I need to know the kids are okay and right now they aren't and I don't know when they will be.
Things seriously suck.
That is all.
