Sickness Plagues the Miller Home...

Sorry, everyone that I’m posting late. I was going to write about Djinn (genies), but unfortunately, my entire house is sick. So, I’ll bring that to you next week hopefully.

My youngest has strep throat and had a 101 temperature yesterday afternoon when I picked him up from school. His throat was swollen, red and just yucky! Before I went to bed at 9:30 last night (really strange occurrence for me to go to bed before midnight), I was starting to feel puny. Today my throat is sore and I feel blah. My oldest is complaining of a headache and sinus drainage. And at about 8:30 this morning (30 minutes ago for me), I realized I had not even given my blog a single thought. *whimpers* So as my seven year old chatters non-stop with barely a breath taken, I am multi-tasking by chatting with him and writing my blog.

Since we’re all sick, all I can think to write about is how sickness spreads through a household. The only person that might actually survive it is my husband, who seems to never get sick. *glares at him* Some days I really hate him for that. Other days, I’m glad he’s immune to our many ailments. And to be honest, when he gets sick he’s down for a while. That is not something I handle well because he’s worse at being sick then my two boys are. *rolls eyes* He wants to be babied and pampered until I am beating my head against the wall. Aside from that, he’s always injuring himself when the rest of us are for the most part injury free.

Is anyone’s house like mine? Does one get sick and the rest come down with it or something else? I’m the sanitize queen, but it still doesn’t seem to stop at one person. It only stops when it’s brought at least three of the four of us down. Gah! Anytime something dominoes out of control around here, we blame it on the demons, so it’s their fault this time too! ;-)

My boys have a karate tournament next weekend and this sickness is making it difficult to prepare for it. Grrr….Calgon, take me away!!!

On a side note, I was putting my oldest to bed the other night and he put his chapstick on the bedside table. I saw him put it there and after I had hugged him good night, he went to pick up the chapstick and it was GONE! We looked everywhere…under the table, under his bed, all over the floor, in his bed, threw the covers off, shook the covers, and we still have not found that chapstick. His comment was…. “Did the dang ghost get it?” Ha! Had me laughing. Yes, he definitely watches too much Supernatural with me.

A reminder…this weekend is Daylight Savings, so turn your clocks forward one hour Saturday night. Oh, and if you’re a Supernatural lover, next Thursday, March 12th, is the return of Sam and Dean!!!!!!!!!!! Woohoo!!!!!! Proof that there IS life at the end of the tunnel! ;-)

I hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

Ours comes in waves, but yeah you're right. One kid comes down sick and soon everyone else is too. (knocking wood) I'm the only one who hasn't had to see the dr because of illness in the past two years! Hoping this continues...just got daughter back to school after her bout with strep throat; the toddler had one day with a sore throat; hubby had eye surgery. K and I are healthy so far!

I hope you and your family get to feeling better, Gracen! *HUGS*

So sorry to hear all this. I've spent the last month battling asthma and bronchitis. I'm still not totally over it but everyone else in the house and at work seems to be better.

Sorry I haven't been around today, guys. I mentioned my youngest has strep, but now my oldest has the stomach bug and is throwing up! *throws hands into the air* So, that means, the hubby and I can officially come down with the stomach bug and strep at the same time within the next week, just in time for the karate tournament, right? LOL When it rains it pours I guess.

Ashley, so sorry to hear about your month long battle. That's a super pain in the butt. I've been fighting allergies for about a month, but I can keep them somewhat contained with medication.

I hope everyone has an awesome weekend and I'll check back tomorrow for Ashley's blog.

*hugs to everyone*
