Down but not out!

If you have read my blog for a while, or know me in real life, you may remember (or not) that last summer we had a little extra adventure while we were in Hawaii. Two days before we were set to leave Maui and go to Oahu for a few days, Andrew threw his back out. Well, he has done it again.

Yesterday he threw it out by sneezing! Yes, he does sneeze violently, but still, that is very weird.

This husband of mine has only missed 1/2 day of work due to illness since I've known him yet he had to stay home from work today because of his back. So it's bad!

Also, Abigail mysteriously was running a slight fever (again) at daycare yesterday. I am beyond frustrated with her health. She just got over a cold. I cannot imagine what I am doing wrong that she is sick all the time. She's still breastfeeding, she eats only organic and/or whole foods (nothing processed much really), I give her Vitamin C, Vitamin D and other supplements every day, she gets plenty of rest (most days), she eats and drinks her weight in probiotics every week (yogurt and kefir). I have no idea what else to do to keep her healthy! Glass bubble? Crack down on people (her daddy!) who do things to constantly share germs? Okay, so that rant is over.

So our family is not in the best shape right now. Fortunately, I'm still up and running. Unfortunately, the yard needs mowed, the garden needs weeded, the car needs several repairs so we can sell it (to buy a van), the house is a dump, the laundry is piled high, and I'm way behind on birthday cards/gifts/etc! Oh well, tomorrow is my day off so hopefully I can tackle some of this then!

Such is life with little one(s)! Sometimes it doesn't matter how healthy they're fed, they get run down with colds. It's impossible, aside from a bubble!, to keep colds away sometimes. It's so frustrating! We went through a spell like that this spring. It seemed like one/both kids had a cold/cough for months on end! Hope both A's are better very soon.

Yes, I hear you! This spring has been tough! I don't think it would bother me nearly as much if I didn't have to miss work every week or two. All my sick days have been used up!
