Warning: Pity Party Ahead

<begin whine> If we can't wipe out illness altogether, there should be some sort of natural law that prevents both parents from getting sick at the same time.  Ugh. Fatigue. Aches. Fever. Fatigue. Aches. Fatigue. Sore throat. And did I mention the aches and fatigue?

And of course, other than a slight lingering cough for Kaylee, both kids are perfectly fine.  Which is good, but it means they're all full of energy, and the peace and quiet Mark and I would like is just not happening.  Ugh.

So basically, Mark and I are taking turns doing the bare minimum around here.  He let me sleep for four hours yesterday while he handled the kids, did supper, and put them to bed.  I did breakfast and lunch today.  We both laid in bed and vegged out with an incredibly cheesy movie this morning and let the kids fend for themselves for a while.

We did manage to make a dent in the Christmas decorating yesterday before Mark got to feeling too bad.  (He seems to be running a few days behind me.)  Still have not done any shopping yet though.  And we've got a guest magician coming in next weekend and the house is a complete disaster. It takes all the energy I have just to do a load of dishes.  

I sure hope I'm over this soon and that Mark doesn't get it as bad as I've got it. </end whine>

We now return you to your regularly scheduled web browsing.
