Sickies... and a silver lining

So we ran the 3K Saturday! Yay! Actually it wasn't so bad at all. Of course, we did walk a few times. Travis came down with a fever Friday afternoon, so I doubted we'd even end up going. But, he woke up Saturday ready to go, despite a bit of a cough. I figured we could bow out early if if figured to be too much. But, he was such a trooper! :)

The weekend had a rapidly downward spiral after that... fever came back, there was one instance of hurling (him) and as the day wore on I got a sore throat. Of course I felt like I was hit by a train Sunday morning! Achy, sore throat, the whole deal.

Of course, little Man stayed home Monday.

Monday evening I got a terrible stabbing pain in my ear out of the blue, including vertigo. it was awful! Since Travis was also clearly getting worse, I decided we both needed medical attention. Jeff left work early, and we went to "Doc in the Box" and waited, waited, waited. Almost 2 hours in the waiting room. Thank goodness for T's iPod Touch!! He was great. We waited another 45 minutes for the doctor, and I made it clear to anyone listening that it was unacceptable. Maybe it should be called DOCTOR on Duty not Doctors. :P

We both were diagnosed with matching ear infections, and I also have a sinus infection. Yay. Z-packs all around. :P

Now Ashley is all congested and unhappy too. Poor baby. I hope she makes it out without any added sickness.

The only thing worse than seeing your babies sick and unhappy is being sick and unhappy yourself while trying to care for them.

Hoping this next week is a better one! :)

The Good News is, I am down 5.6 pounds since last week! (Even with my "monthly visitor.")

Crazy, huh? The craziest part?! My total weight loss since March 1st is 22.4 pounds! To put that into perspective, I have lost nearly the equivalent weight of ASHLEY!!! (She's 23 pounds, tiny little thing, huh?)
I hit my 10% weight loss goal, and my weight starts with the number "1" for the first time in... forever! :D
