The last few days...

...have been very long. This morning we resumed our usually places on the couch. Westyn and I in the corner of the chaise, Grayson on the middle cushion. It's been 4 days of sickness. I don't recall either boys ever being this sick, and I really hope it ends soon and never happens again...

I've not been able to get very far from the couch other then to put a few dishes away or pop in yet another load of laundry...I am the only one that hasn't caught this awful virus and I hope it stays that way. I am so drained though, just from sitting...doing nothing...wathcing cartoons. It's been a very long 4 days. Ironically, my word of 2013 was RELAX. For some reason this isn't what I had in mind, but none the less, it's what I've been doing. Forced to do nothing really. I managed to read two books. I filed my nails and replied to emails via my iPod. The Christmas tree was sitting naked in the corner of our living room until last night. Piles of clean laundry piled on the table, no one is eating there and since we seem to be going through so many clothes, it was a handy spot to put them.


Westyn has been pretty insistent that I sit with him at all times. He dozes in and out of sleep and while he's sleeping I stare at him. It reminds me of when he was a baby, snoring softly, his eyes closed, cradled in my arms...just bigger.

I hate seeing them this sick, I hate being so helpless...

Feel better Kiddos! My son had the worst stomach flu I've ever seen this time last year. I hope he never has to experience that kind of sickness again. It is exhausting taking care of sick little ones (or a sick husband). Take care of yourself! Here's to hoping it passes soon.
