Picnic at the Park

Last week my sister and her husband had a wedding to attend so Josh and I had the chance to watch their kids, Elena and Xander. They live in Wyoming and we don't get to see them very often so it was nice to get to spend time with them. The kids played so well together and we had a great day! We went to a park near our house and had a picnic, can I just say how glad I am it's getting WARMER!!

I'm going to be a huge whiner for a minute, I apologize in advance...I have been sick since Monday and by now it is just getting really annoying! I'm all stuffed up, I can't breathe, I can't sleep, I can't taste, I'm achy, I haven't been able to workout - it is getting so old. How can I possibly still have so much junk in my nose when I have been blowing it every 5 seconds for 4 whole days? Worst of all, I have been the worst wife and mother ever. I haven't made dinner or cleaned the house all week, I don't feel like a fun Mom at all, I've been a big worthless lump.

My kids have been sick, too, which makes this even more sad and difficult. Sick kids are hard enough to deal with, but adding a sick Mom into the mix is just cruel and unusual punishment. The only positive thing I have to say about this whole crappy situation is that I have no appetite. Even if I did feel hungry, I can't taste anything so what would be the point in eating anyway? The only reason I've eaten what little I have all week is because I'm still nursing and don't want to completely deplete my milk supply. I just drink Sprite or water for my meals, with a cough drop for dessert.

I'm sure you wanted to hear all of that, I am now done with my rant. It feels good to get that out, though, I have to say. I hope you are doing better than I am :)
