Monday, You Did Not Let Me Down.

After our awesome 1 hour family Wii Fit workout yesterday, Mr Wall Nut and I decided that we were going to start getting up at 5am to workout. We have been talking about it for months and were so close when daylight savings time messed up my schedule.

Yes. I am still bitter, and still blaming.

I have issues.

This morning my alarm went off and as I was working on dragging myself out of bed, I hear Owain crying. It is not uncommon for him to wake up around 5am and ask for water. When I got up there he was burning up with fever and was over 103. There went my early morning workout, and it was 5 am and I was wide awake begging Mr Wall Nut for coffee.

Honey Nut was sick over the weekend and had over 102 fever that was easily controlled with motrin. I was hoping the same for Owain, but no luck. I had an 8:45 appointment, that took less than 10 minutes, went to the Post Office, got there 10 minutes early and was first in line. Mr Wall Nut was home with the kids and I got to go to the grocery store ALONE. It was turning out to be a pretty good Monday even though there was no workout and Owain was sick.

I was gone for just under 2 hours and was hoping that Owee would have been feeling much better by the time I got home, but even on motrin, his fever was rising. I am glad that Honey Nut got sick first or I would have thought it was an infection due to his Heart Cath from last week. I came close to going into the Dr, but I got to talk to her on the phone and she made me feel better about his fever. I love his pediatrician’s office, they are so awesome there!

Shortly after getting Wee Nut settled in, Wing Nut came down with the same virus. He is having a difficult time being sick, I guess because his is older. He has had a higher fever for longer and is very uncomfortable. E Nut and Little Nut Nut both have slight fevers and I am waiting for the high fever to take over.

And I feel like I have a slight fever.

And Mr Wall Nut took his truck in for a few simple things and was supposed to get it back today, but it wont be done until tomorrow evening. And will probably cost much more than we thought.

And he is going out of town to work until Friday. So I have 2 sick kids, with 2 more and me waiting for the high fever to knock us down.

Monday, I thought that we started out on pretty good terms this morning, but I see now you can’t help but make others around you miserable. Be careful Monday, because next week I am taking you down!

For now I just have to make it until 12:30am to check temperatures of Wing Nut and Wee Nut and give them their next dose of medicine, the last one was tylenol, the next will be motrin. Then I need to kiss some foreheads to see how E Nut and Little Nut Nut are doing.

    Oh no! Sick children and a sick mommy at the same time is no fun, I know. Hope you all feel better very soon.
