The kids all had fevers again today. The girls have been coughing and coughing. Lauchy's nose has been oozing green fluid all day. It has been a long, tiring, and cranky day. I haven't gotten a fever (yet) but I have also been coughing and can feel a tightness in my chest and aches in my upper body. I am definitely fighting something off. And oh yes, Jeff got picked up at 3 a.m. last night and headed to Salt Lake City.
On my own with 3 sick kids. But I don't think I've ever felt more loved than today! I had friends offering to get me groceries, friends offering to loan me DVD's. I had another friend offer to come over tonight so that I could go for a run (too sick to, though).
We went out briefly this morning to pick up some videos and when we got home I found this in the door...
A Venti Caramel Macchiato for me (at least I think it was that - it said CM on the sleeve) and a hot chocolate for all 3 kids! Talk about spoiled! It was from my lovely friend N! What a thoughtful and much appreciated surprise! Starbucks is one place that I would never venture into on my own with 3 kids, but I do enjoy their coffee! This truly was a treat for me!
Not long after another friend showed up at the door with a frozen lasagna for me and the kids! I mean, come on! How lucky can I be? It was such a thoughtful thing to do and again, very much appreciated. Just one less thing to think about today.
I just want to thank everyone for thinking of me today! Wow! I have an amazing group of friends and neighbours!
The kids are in bed and I am all ready to curl up with this (the book, not the phone!).
♥ Thanks again friends! ♥
An almost-birthday adventure for two
