Wow! What a week! Or should I say what a winter?!? Seriously, for me this has been one of the worst winters I can remember. It's been long, filled with snow, cold, more snow, and did I mention snow? The good news on the winter front is that next week is looking warmer here so we can maybe get outside, the sun will hopefully shine, and maybe just maybe, some of that snow will melt. I for one am ready for Spring!
While the winter has been long for me, more than anything I am looking forward to Spring in the hopes of no longer having a sick family. As I've blogged about before, this winter we got hit pretty hard with sickness. Two times with the stomach bug, two times with colds, pink eye, and now this week I came down with a sinus infection.
I chronically get sinus infections and always have since I was quite young. I get about one a year. This one though was the worst I can ever remember. Monday morning, I tried getting out of bed and couldn't even think straight. My head was pounding, pain was radiating all over my face, and even in my ears. Thankfully, Chris was able to stay home with me thinking that by Tuesday I would be better. Well I wasn't. By Wednesday, my head realized this was more than just a common cold and I went in to the doctor. On the way there we got a flat tire, with three over-tired kids in the backseat. I'll spare you all the details of the rest of my week, but let's just say that I wore the same outfit all week, no laundry got done, and my girls had to watch a lot of T.V. when dad wasn't here to help watch them.
All that to say that even though today is suppose to be photo share Saturday, I took no photos this week. I hope to be back to my 100% normal self soon and next Saturday be able to share a new photo with you. In addition, my health seems to be a petty issue compared to those who are suffering in Japan. My heart and prayers go out to you!
Also, I'd love to hear any tricks to keep sickness at bay all winter long? Or at least minimize it? Also, do any of you get chronic sinus infections? Have you found any good cures to ward them off? Tell me your thoughts on the dreaded surgery too? I want to hear it all!
