Sick and Tired

My kids have been sick for two weeks now, primarily with colds. Of course, my son always has respiratory complications so he is still sick and on breathing treatments. I knew I would end up sick, but I started thinking I may get through this unscathed when more than a week and a half passed and I still wasn't sick.

Then I woke up Sunday feeling crappy: sore throat, exhausted, sneezing. Full on cold hit today in addition to some type of stomach bug and cold sweats. Ugh. All I really want to do is crawl into bed and sleep the day away. While I am fairly confident that the kids wouldn't kill themselves or others I greatly fear what my house would look like when I finally awoke. So, for that reason I will suffer through the day, awake, and hope that for the first time in more than two months I actually can sleep through the night tonight.

Being sick sucks. Being sick and having to take care of others is downright torture. Can I get an "Amen?"

So, what do you do when you are sick and tired yet have kids to care for?

Oh Moxy if I could fly out there on magic wings to help you I would...
There's nothing worse that being sick when you have sick children too. Been there, don't know what I did. Maybe we both stayed in bed together. I had bronchitis, he had strep or tonsilitis.
I hope you're feeling better soon.

Nancy, thanks so much! I wish you had magic wings. :) I'm tempted to check into a hotel and let them loose.
