A few pictures to sort of sum up this week of crazy. To recap, it started here.
Several nights of sleeping (or not) downstairs so we didn't wake everyone else with crazy fussing.
A care package arrived from my Dad via Amazon that has helped get me through the week.
There has been a LOT of coffee. (My girls love to drink out of these Disney coffee mugs that I used to collect. I am kicking myself that I got rid of most of them before they were born).
Starting to feel a bit better ... it was now Thursday and we were FINALLY starting to perk up a bit.
We even got a little school done this week.
Can you find the sleeping baby in there under the puppy?
On Thursday, we needed to make a run for some fresh produce ... we were cleaned out at home ... and we all needed out of the house. Because Mama is wild and crazy, we had lunch at Sam's.
While there, I ran into my holiday nemesis peanut brittle. It did not come home with me, thankfully.
And then, we were back at the dr's office for another check of the boy. (At this point, we had visited our wonderful pediatrician's office five times in as many days). The boy, while markedly improved on his croup and stridor, has a double ear infection and pinkeye. Apparently it is very normal for that to follow croup. So glad we are normal. : )
The boy's bucket o' drugs and my notes for when he took which medicine. One three times a day, one once a day, one twice a day, plus the Motrin and whatever else as well as keep track of what his fever was. And eventually keeping track of B and N1's fever because they succumbed to the germ, although for them it has only turned into bad colds.
And that, my friends, has been our week.
