It's that dreaded time of the year, you know, the sniffles and coughs, the fevers and sore throats?
Without fail, my children are always one of the first to get hit with whatever is going around so right now, there's one down in the household.
Nicholas stayed home today, low grade fever, runny nose, this horrible cough and just downright cruddy feeling. I hoped we would luck out this year and totally skip this flu season but it seems it's not going to happen.
Everywhere I look there are sick mommies and daddies and school kids, I'm just praying that we can all get through this time of the year with minimal sickies.
I'm sitting here with a cup of hot tea and honey, my throat has that itchy thing going so I'm thinking I may just be next in line, prayers that I don't.
I've managed to finally catch up with all my bloggy friends and boy did I miss a lot, I'm just glad that I am finally up to date, it's much easier to open the Google reader when you don't have 1000 new posts. YIKES!
We're still here in Arizona and can't wait to leave, it's been two years where we've made do but never really grew used to it, it's just not for us.
To say that I don't feel safe in this area is also an understatement, you would think living on a military base you would not have to worry about certain things but the fact is that you do. We've had a couple of robberies right outside the gates and then they jump into the base. Unbelievable!
Just this past weekend, Sunday night to be exact, we were woken up around midnight with two loud explosions, it scared the bejeebers out of me, turns out there was some sort of Swat Team across the road bursting into an apartment.
I can't even make this stuff up, it's that ridiculous. So yes, to say we're ready to leave this area is an understatement.
It's all in the Lord's hands and I'm sure we'll be fine and when the time is right, we'll move on from this base.
Anyway, I just wanted to come and check in with everyone, I best be off to help kids with homework and baths and all that other fun night time routine. Once they're settled in for the night, I'll be having myself a cup of yummy hot Mexican chocolate and popping in another disc of Little House on the Prairie or Supernatural...not sure yet which I'm in the mood for.
I hope you're all enjoying this wonderful Tuesday, don't forget to bundle up, you don't want to be getting sick right now.
