I'm sick.

Darren is thinking of coming home early from work today since he had to work on two of his days off last week. And if he does, I just might see if I can get an appointment with our family doctor. I feel awful! Last night, though, was the worst. My throat hurt so bad I could barely swallow, my neck, shoulders, and back hurt so much that I didn't even want to move, and I was so chilled that I just spent most of the evening huddled under a blanket on the couch. Pathetic! Man, if this is what the kids have had for the past two weeks then I don't see how they remained so cheerful. They never acted as sick as I feel, but I know they must have been because they complained of the exact same symptoms (except instead of backache they had headache.) I feel somewhat better today, but my whole body just aches and my nose and ears are painfully stuffy and my throat is still sore, but at least I can swallow without crying!

Wow, so on that cheerful note I'm going to go ahead and attach these two videos of Kristen because they just make me laugh! My kids can always cheer me up! (Oh: and please just excuse the lack of clothing in the first video. She had just woken up and we were in the process of getting dressed, but dancing always comes first!)

I am so sorry you are feeling so sick! Yuck! And the dancing is just too cute for words! Lots of love from me to you.

I hope you feel better Melissa - Kristen is so darling. I'm glad we finally got to see her - it is hard to believe she is already walking! Babies grow way too fast!
