Oh boy. I haven’t been blogging much lately. Turns out there’s a good chance I have carpal tunnel in my right wrist. Trent blames it on too much blogging and facebook, and yet here I am again! I’m working through the pain for you, my 4 readers. Also, our house is in a constant pendelum swing of health and illness. I had a 2 week battle with a throat/cough/hoarse voice thing, but it was isolated to between the shoulders and the chin. I could handle it, and then it seemed to be over! But now we’re all trading back and forth these cold symptoms, toss in a fever here or there, a little vomit in the car on Halloween day (Carson), and then throw in a few 24 hour periods of NO symptoms, and it’s just a confusing mess. Both kids have been vaccinated for H1N1, and the doc said they could still get the flu, just a more mild version of it. I’m not sure if that’s what’s happening, or if we’re passing around another virus. One day, Carson will have a cough and fever…skip Bible study and then swimming lessons. But then, one whole day of feeling great! Back to preschool! Oh, but Sydney now has a high fever. Keep her home. Oh, and now Carson’s cough is back and so is mine, along with other cold crap. But today is I think the first day ever when I’ve felt pretty sick AND both my kids feel sick. Especially Sydney. The last 2 days her fever led her to want to snuggle and be held all day. This worked, as I was able to finally watch the 3 hour movie, Australia. Today, her fever is leading her to scream. Bloody. Murder. It’s a real delight. After 2 hours of carrying her around the house, losing my hearing, I gave up. She’s in her crib right now informing me she disapproves of my choice. I’m sticking to my guns that she’ll fall asleep.
But I wanted to get some pictures up of a more enjoyable scene: the Halloween costumes! Of course Sydney gets more airtime because she’s small and cuddly, and it was her first real costume. She was a little leopard, purchased on eBay for $3! ($9 with S&H)
Oh, and don’t forget the obligatory forced photo op with hot, sweaty & grumpy kids! Here’s Jack, Syd and Carson as Spiderman. He was in heaven! Thanks to Shannan for the loaner.
