Enough already!

We are going on three weeks of sickness over here.  THREE WEEKS PEOPLE.  My sanity (what little of it I actually possessed) is shot.  A's been to the doctor twice because I got concerned about strep or pneumonia.  She had a sore throat and fever for nearly two and a half weeks.  It seemed to get better then worse again.  She is fine now except for a cough.  This cough mostly only comes at night.  She has developed this fun habit of coughing after she falls asleep until she throws up.  Every night.  It doesn't matter what measures we take to avoid this (Vick's rub, humidifier, propping her up with pillows, setting her up in a chair) she is a guaranteed spew.  Of course, once she does this she is fine.  Sleeps through the night with barely a cough.  I know things could be worse but I'm getting awfully sick of cleaning up the mess every night!
K lost her voice for a while in there.  She didn't let a pesky little thing like that stop her though.  No way, not K.  She just powered on through, talking all the while.  She did find some scissors while I was ignoring her busy earlier this week.   I discovered the pile of hair carefully hid under the train table in the toy room.  It was a good opportunity to talk about truth vs lie because she insisted that D did it.  Then later when we were cleaning the toys up she told me how she did it.  The thing about K is, she doesn't actually lie.  I think she honestly believes the story she is telling at the time.
D finished his report this week.  We handed it in on Thursday. Now we need to get through the 5 minute oral presentation on Friday this week.  We need to figure out what props he's going to make and get them made.  I'm thinking of posting his report on here.  I'm pretty proud of him!
Did I mention we've been sick for three weeks?  Three weeks of fevers, sore throats, coughs, phlem and fun!  Okay, maybe not the fun part.  But now it is mine turn I guess. Apparently you can only hang around germ balls for so long before you get sick too.  I think it is time for a vacation.  Or a summer.  I'd take either one.
