This is crazy.

Another Monday dawns sunny and beautiful in our little neck of the woods, but we are still overrun by sickness. My antibiotics ended yesterday and I am now way worse than I was about three or four days ago.  At 1:30 a.m. I was coughing so hard I threw up. I have never done that. Never. My throat feels like someone has stuck a knife through it. Micah is coughing as hard as I am, and is miserable. Enough is enough. I am taking myself and Micah to the doctor this afternoon, provided I can find baby sitting for the other two boys. I hope I can. I am desperate. I have never in my life had a sore throat that lasted a full two weeks, especially with a whole round of antibiotics in between. I guess I am going for some kind of record here. I hope the doctor can do something for us. I am desperate for help.

Other than that, things are fairly typical around here. Jamie decided to use my laundry rack as a ladder, and it is now completely destroyed. I now have nowhere to hang my diapers to dry every day. I know, I can just buy a new one, but it's the principle. You know, the whole concept of having to buy new things that we already had over and over again just because one of our kids decides to destroy the perfectly good item that we already paid for.

Now, Micah is standing in front of me alternately screaming and crying, and making pathetic faces to lay on the guilt. He is miserable with this sickness and I feel bad for him, but there are moments where he also drives me crazy. I don't know how much longer we can function this way. I hope I will have good news after I see the doctor this afternoon...if we're able to go, of course.

I am going to read for a while. Not much good for anything else today. Bye for now.
