Dub anybody hab a tissue...Warning complete whining......

Yesterday....I felt like my allergies could be flaring up. It is that time of year for me. Pear trees are in full bloom, forsythia shrubs, daffofils, purple bud trees...It is gorgeous this time of year. I simply thought it was my allergies. However both children have allergies too, and I did note them as symptomatic. (Yes both have allergies despite the 15 months of breatfeeding.....) Last night took a benedryl to help, woke this morning with some crazy ass flu. SO now I am on my 2 sudafed, 3rd glass of "Airborne".....Damn. If I figure out who gave this to me, I will kill them. I am rarely ill, and as a nurse I just get pissed off about being sick. As a single person it is awful being sick...but as a MOM......it is like HELL. Moms feel free to chime in here....Please chime in.

Of course Dear Husband has his "motorcyle safety class" tonight, and all day Saturday and Sunday. I have to pack for us to be on the road Monday......My guess is children will have this illness by then, despite my good hygiene. Just because: it would be hilarious driving snotty and sick toddlers across the country to visit relatives, that will likely get sick from them. Damn......

This morning we had to take the "Pink Ninja" in for her 15 month check up, and her immunization. We were in the Drs. Office for 2 hours. Can you imagine. So if they don't get my illness, I am sure they picked up something "exotic" there. Her visit went well. All was well with her appointment, she is a healthy and normal toddler. I do wish her hair would come in. Our insurance does not cover "wiglets". It was Dear husbands first time at Dr. With the 3 of us. He liked the new Pediatrician.

I had intended on an entirely different post today....I even have a delicious Easter ham recipe, that includes bourbon......Yummy. I also hope my fellow Moms are healthy, and feeling spry.......................I need to go to bed and stay there for 3 days...At least.

I hope you feel better...especially before your trip. And maybe by chance it'll skip the kids...reliving the flu with two youngins is no fun I'm sure!

Good think I can't catch flus from my dog!

I love "Pink Ninja". Wish I'd thought of that.

Tara was completely bald until she was nearly one, so you have my sympathy with that. Now it's grown, I'm constantly messing with it. She hates me.

Get well soon :-)

I hope you feel better soon. Mom's are just not allowed to be sick. I'm running a lowgrade fever (101) and feel like barf'ng but I'm doing dishes, laundry and getting dinner ready. UGH.
