On a positive note, Mommy here is feeling much better. Not 100% but I’ll say at least 75% of norm. This is a good thing. And yet, we were back at the Doctors office on a Saturday morning. A big Thank you to all those who have sent me loving emails and offers to keep the children if we weren’t separated by hundreds of miles!
During Ballet class yesterday afternoon, I noticed that K3 just wasn’t with it. She didn’t dance or do much of anything. Normally she is at least monkeying around during class. By the time her class was over and K2 was starting, I noticed rosy cheeks and yep… the fever was back. I decided it was time to visit the Doctor. Evidently, K3 has developed pneumonia and a double ear infection. Woot!
Needless to say the sickie kidlets will not be going to church with us here in a few minutes… TeenGirl is going to have to stay behind with them. I can’t stomach the thought of them spewing virus laden droplets all over their respective classes. Mommy must attend since I have hospitality duties. (Is this a reprieve or just a chance for me to feel guilty for leaving the sick kids home without me?)
Green Tip of the Day- Use less water: wash only full loads of laundry and dishes, use the cold was cycle, turn off the extra rinse cycle and heated dry cycles. Shorten your showers (or better yet, share them!). This is a no-brainer, but one we often fall off the bandwagon with!
