Dear February: Go away.

It's almost 2 am. The kids and I are sick. The capt is so uncomfortable that it took forever to get him back to sleep and he keeps waking up because it hurts to swallow. And he has what I'm having. It seems we are sick all winter on the East Coast. It gets really old really fast.

Mr Renn takes his part II written boards today. It would be ideal if he could wait to get sick until they are over. (It would be more ideal if none of us were sick, but I'm aiming low)

I've said it before and nothing was ever truer. The only thing worse than having a sick baby is being a sick mamma with a sick baby, and to do it all on no sleep.

I'm off to scrounge for chloraseptic in the dark. And enjoy the part where the captain is sure to wake up screaming in pain again less than 10 min after I manage to fall asleep through my own pain.

My mantra - this is my last Febru-delphia. I dare to hope that next February I will see the sun quasi-regularly, and spend at least 6 days out of the month not wallowing in illness. Audacious of me, I know. It's the sleep deprivation talking.

ETA: Mr Renn is now off to take his boards on very little sleep and with a headache - due to the aforementioned rough night with the Captain (which went as bad or worse than I was anticipating at 2am). Any prayers and good vibes you can send his way will be beyond appreciated!

i'm glad that amidst the bedlam of everything you take time to chronicle it all as well. there's something very cool about that.

good vibes are on their way.

Ugh! That sounds awful! Mr. Renn will be done with boards later today, though, then maybe the whole family can have a lovely little afternoon nap to recover from the night. None fun. Good luck to Renn on his exam. Prayers from our house.

All say a pray for all of you. Really I think it would be good for all of you. We just got better from two weeks of sick kids...sick parents. Not fun at all .I feel your pain. I remember how hard those times were when the hubby was gone all the time to study. OH how I remember. Good luck to Renn, I'm sure he'll do good. Gool luck to you. I hope you all feel better.

Oh my! You poor thing. Prayers sent your way. Here's to hoping Renn did well, and that you are all on the mend.

I hate this month too for that same reason! So far so good at our house, but there is still a lot left of the month. Good luck, hope you don't go to crazy!! Feel better.
