The week I lost my mind.

Why is it so hard to get back on the blogging train when I've fallen off?!?!

And I was doing so good there for a hot minute. 

Well, we moved into the farmhouse and four days later, we all came down with the flu. Let's just say it was not my finest parenting week. 

I came down with it first and then over the next nine days, we were all taken down.  Let's talk about how hard it is to parent two sick children when you are trying to recover from the flu yourself. It should be law that if mom gets sick, she gets it after everyone else, not first.  I feel like we cannot catch a break this winter.  We have never been sick like we have in the past two months.  The bright side is that there isn't much left for us to catch because we've pretty much caught it all it seems.

I may or may not have broken down at the third doctors appointment of the week asking "why us???" I'm sure the doctor may or may not have thought about having me committed at that point and time.  If it wasn't for the fact he had already seen me several times that week and I had already chalked up a $30 co pay each time, I might not still be here.

Oh, and add on the fact it was Snow Apocalypse in Atlanta last week did not help anything.  That meant I was flying solo for three days with two sick kids.

Like I said, it was not my finest parenting week.  Let's just leave it at that.

So, we all finally started to recover over the weekend and this week we finally all seem back to normal.  

Ahhhhh....normal.

This year so far has seemed far from normal. 

I had high hopes for 2014, but let's be honest, it's kicking my butt so far.

Hoping for a "quieter and healthier" February.

Four days in and things are looking promising.
