Why can't this family get healthy?

Jason and I were sick all week. The kids were vastly improved. Today was my last day as tomorrow is an EDO. We pick up Stephen from daycare and he's got a fever. He's pretty much been crying non-stop since we got home, except for the nap. It's 10:45 and I just found Alex in her room in the dark putting on her summer sandles and playing on the floor. I'm so pissed that she won't just go to sleep. She's making my life a living hell in the mornings... will not get up, but she will not fall asleep at night.

I'm completely exhausted. I'm sick of hearing screaming. I hate that it seems we're starting another round of sick, and that my day off tomorrow is apparently going to be to parent a sick child, rather than get some much needed things done around the house.

And for those of you that pray, pray for my friend. She was 15 weeks pregnant and just found out the baby died. I believe this will be her fourth loss in 2-3 years.

That's so sad about your friend. :(
Kinda puts my being sick and other petty whines into perspective.
Hope your tomorrow isn't as bad as you think it will be and you get some stuff done.

You know...emotional health is just as important as physical health. If your mind isn't "healthy", from stress or worry or whatever, your physical body will assume the task of ridding it of such illness by taking on an illness of it's own.

Children, they have ESP in connection to their parents emotional state. If they sense anything under the surface that isn't well, they will not be well either.

Don't let that sound like I am accusing you of being mentally ill, although it does mean more than being "retarded" or "crazy". I am sure you know that too.

I simply mention it as a different angle to look at...when everything else that seems "obvious" turns out not to be.

Lub and hugs.
