Well, today is the day the house illness finally hit me. I was the last holdout, but my immune system decided that the defense sector is crumbling, and the economy is too weak to support inanimate objects of thier talent caliber.
Things I have to do while sick:
- Wake up early and take the kids to school
- Make breakfast
- Play pretend cafe
- Change dirty diapers
- Be subjected to ear-splitting screams
- Pick up after my children
- Try not to breathe on anything/anyone

So as you can see, I am quickly learning that being a stay at home parent SUCKS when you are sick. I am lucky in the fact that I have sister-in-laws close, and they would help if I needed it, but then, whatever would I blog about? If I can't post my misery in a public forum to gain sympathy and attention, then what good is the internet for?
On a side note, about REAL sick people...I am raising money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, more specifically Phoenix Children's Hospital, where my niece Anna received a life-saving brain surgery. I am participating in an event called Extra Life, and I'm trying to raise as much money as I can to help out a worthy cause. I know the economy sucks, and money is tight, but any amount you can donate is helpful and appreciated!
