Weekend Open Thread

February 1, 2014

You guys! It has been a rough week.

Last night everyone seemed well on the road to recovery, so I went to DD’s school fundraiser by myself (we bought tickets long ago, but DH stayed home with the kids).

When I got home DS (who had been recovered for days) had spiked a 103 degree fever. We gave him Tylenol and put him to bed, but he woke up 2 hours later, inconsolable and still feverish. Because DH was diagnosed with H1N1, I freaked the fuck out and marched DS straight to urgent care. We get there and DS is diagnosed with: a cold. Your garden variety upper respiratory infection, according to the doc.

This morning he woke up fever free, and DD was fever free for the first time since Wednesday. DH, DD and DS all have moderate coughing still. And me? So far, I remain unscathed. But oh, so exhausted.

Let’s just say I broke open a box of Samoas last night. SERENITY NOW. I’m hoping what’s left of the weekend will be more relaxing.

What are you up to? Chat away!
