Sick House. Sick, Sick, House

We’re so sick. Every single family member. The antibiotics are kicking strep’s butt so that’s great. But buddy buddy with strep came along a really awful cold virus. It’s been awful. Really awful. I won’t bother complaining about the specifics because everyone has been sick and knows how badly it sucks!

Allan couldn’t go shopping for me one week so I waited until the kids had been on antibiotics for 72 hours to go shopping. We were desperate for some fresh food by that day!!  photo 002eresized_zps5c8a89b9.jpg

My kids bring their toys into the family room every day. I’ve told them to keep their toys in the playroom or their bedrooms practically daily but still they bring out boxes and boxes of toys to play with! While sick I’ve given up and accepted that my family room will look like a disaster until we’re healthy again. Ember playing with toys instead of crawling all over me while whining or crying is a big relief so the mess is a small price to pay for quiet happiness!  photo 064resized_zps557aba0a.jpg

Trying to get some fresh air in the evening. We’ve been cooped up in the house too long!  photo 211eresized_zps0ab02b61.jpg photo 217eresized_zpsfb40e4bd.jpg photo 223eresized_zps33cfaa5f.jpg photo 244eresized_zps020ee308.jpg photo 253eresized_zps258c1c5e.jpg photo 259eresized_zps368c35c7.jpg

My voice went away three days into my cold. I’ve been trying to have lots of reading time with the kids but couldn’t that day. Allan took over bedtime story time 🙂  photo 004bwresized_zps9efc494f.jpg

I hate that when I’m pregnant I wake up SO hungry. Like I need to throw up if I don’t eat because my stomach hurts so bad! And nothing sounds good except for protein. This particular morning I made myself eat fruit along with my egg and (delicious chicken, apple) sausage to help my body get a boost of vitamins to combat the virus currently wreaking havoc.  photo 011eresized_zps5a2fdc22.jpg

While I was cooking breakfast Ember was happily playing with her toys.  photo 017eresized_zpsdfb43d89.jpg

We spend a lot of time lounging on the couch together these days. I like to cuddle and be with my baby girl but we’re sick to death of being stuck inside!  photo 030eresized_zps64936794.jpg

Just to show that I’m not lying when I say my family room is pretty much always messy these days…  photo 042resized_zpsb937cfc3.jpg

Ember was asking to breastfeed when I took this next one. (I hate breastfeeding. HATE. So painful and aggravating and she wants to nurse all the live long day! I usually say no.)  photo 034eresized_zps00174900.jpg

My belly is getting huge. Grossly huge.  photo 038eresized_zps1259edc4.jpg

I’m not quite ready to have another child to take care of but I’m so done with being pregnant. Too bad it’s not November already. Hopefully the next month and a half goes by really fast!  photo 063eresized_zpsf253d22d.jpg

  • Hope you're all back to normal soon. Being sick sucks. 6 weeks will go by so fast and we'll all get to ooh and aah over your new addition! And your house… so not messy at all. I wish mine looked that messy on a good day. Tidying up is not my strong suit… and I only have 2 kids but about 10x the mess and I can't even really blame them 😉
