I hope I don't have the swine flu

It was only a matter of time before the kinder critters attacked my immunities. After one year of teaching, it is a certifiable fact that I am not immune to everything and I'm sure my annual bout of strep throat will occur within the next 6 weeks (the past two years tell the same tale). My nose and head feel stuffy and clogged, so for the first time since October of 2008 I'm taking cold medication. Pregnancy and nursing prevented the consumption of such medication.

However, it's not working. I feel like blah. And Baby B is just getting over feeling like blah, so things are just very blah around here today.

Well, except my husband and FIL hung new shutters on our house (that've been sitting in our basement for the past year), and Baby B and I did manage to get in a Target trip (which I'll blog about later), and my parents are having us over for breakfast for dinner tonight. So maybe it's not been a blah weekend at all. Feeling blah-like just puts a damper on your attitude, I guess.

Here's sweet precious before his whole 103 degree fever bit - at the park with his Nana K...




Look at that determination, wouldya?

That's no fun Abz! I hope you guys feel better soon! At least little B has all your immunities too! I've heard that lasts 6 months after you quit breastfeeding!

It looks like Baby B enjoys the park as much as Paise. I know I had to take a nap after I got home. You know I can be around sick people everyday at the hospital and never get sick. But if I get around one snotty nose little kid I get as sick as a dog. I catch everything that Maleah and Paise have!!!!

It looks like Baby B enjoys the park as much as Paise. I almost fell asleep on the floor when I took her. She was still running around going strong. I can be around all the sick people in the hospital and never get sick but if I get around a sick little kid I will be sick as a dog the next day. If you are like Heather you will have a sore throat all year!!

Ugggh...what a fun way to start the school year. Hope Baby B and B had mercy on you this past weekend and let you get some rest!

I wish I had a running buddy too :-(
I will be coming "home" within the next couple weeks and staying with the parentals while hubby is away on business. We should definitely get together!

BTW--my stroller is a Baby Trend Expedition LX Jogging Stroller. I purchased it at Babies R Us. There are a ton of jogging strollers out there but you have to really inspect them all for safety features. Some of the cheaper strollers I found were truly that--CHEAP. No complaints or problems thus far! Happy searching!

I love the Fall season (well, when it actually becomes Fall) but not the Fall virus fall out. Hope you feel better soon!
