Ugh! A cold for me...

It's no surprise...I have a cold.

So, I haven't slept a full nights sleep in nearly 1.5 months. With a 3-year-old running around and a newborn, sleep really isn't an option.

On top of that, I went to an awesome concert with N on Monday night (more on that in another post). I should have known better, but it sounded fun and I wanted that time with her, so I went. What does a concert have to do with getting sick you ask? Well, it was outdoors, with temps dipping in the mid-50's and it varied between a light drizzle and a full on hard rain for the entire 3 hours. It wasn't bad until the rain had saturated through my clothes and I started shivering for the last 1-1.5 hours.

I suspected I would catch a cold. With the lack of sleep I figured my immune system was down a bit. I even told N as much on our drive home from the concert. I think I was hoping that if I said something, maybe I would be spared. It was a good thought! :)

I am not complaining at all that I have a headache from sinus pressure and that my ears and throat hurt. It happens to the best of us sometimes. I am just interested in seeing how creative I get with parenting a 3-year-old and a 1-month-old.
In a week or two, when I am on the other side of this cold, I will know the tricks of survival. For now, I sleep when I can and pray for a quick recovery. The girls need me healthy!

WOW! I can't believe Lil Princess is a month old already - time flies, huh?

I hope you feel better soon - can't wait to hear about the concert!

UGH!!! It seems as though everyone is getting some kind of "cold" right now. My husband has been sick for about 2 weeks. He is finally feeling a little better but is now just totally drained! So far, I seem to be okay.

Hope you feel better. If you get a chance go and get some Zicam. My husband started taking it too late for it to help him..but usually it helps if you start on it ASAP!

Feel some chicken noodle soup!

We've been sick around here too, making it very hard to take care of ourselves, let alone two little kiddos! Prayers for a quick recovery! LOVE
