Okay, Just Shoot Me Now!
As if this winter couldn't get any worse in our household with sickness.......now Porter's cough has turned into pneumonia. I just simply cannot win. I scrub the house daily, bought a new vacuum, bought a new washer and dryer, feed the kids right, load them up with orange juice and some random extract Amy told me to give the kids, and bathe them daily yet - they are still getting sick. We are averaging attending church every other week and sometimes less cuz someone is always sick and we're not wanting to infect anyone else. We've informed our bishop that we are indeed not inactive, we'd rather be at church, but we're at home with sick kids (Owen and Tess both even had pink eye)!! And to top it all off - LOST is driving me crazy!! What's up with Kate having Claire's kid?? And what about the Oceanic 6 are now 8? Why on earth is Sayid killing someone for Ben? If anyone has these answers, please enlighten me! I can't believe there is another two years after this season for a full resolution of these issues that are making me grind my teeth at night!
So, aside from our issues mentioned above, things are at least progressing here in Mitchell land. Owen is crawling more on his knees and we're surviving to say the least! Brandon's job on the Mayo clinic is humming along and he's getting anxious to finish it soon. We've finally gotten back into our normal routine after being spoiled from Nana for over a week! We had to re-train the kids after she left. Grandparents always give extra special attention and spoiling, so detox must happen after they leave! I've found my self praying for our hot summer to kill all the sickie bugs that keep coming into our home!
Hopefully this week will be full of happy times and no more trips to the doctor. Let's at least hope that come Thursday night, LOST won't give me heartburn!
