Under Attack - YUMMommy

Under Attack

It's only Day 4 of the New Year and we're already under attack by the cold germs. *sigh*  I was really hoping that I would at least make it through this winter cold free.  So much for that.  But I should have seen this coming because earlier this week the Mr was complaining about having a sore throat.

Last night, I started sneezing my head off.  Then I had to get up to hunt down my heavy wool socks because my legs and feet just couldn't get warm enough for some reason.  I even slept in my robe.  Apparently, I was the only one freezing because both JJ and Moo had started to bust out a sweat.  So, I had to turn the heat down.

Sometime around 3 o'clock this morning, JJ started waking up because his poor little nose was stuffy.  Thankfully, I only had to put him back to sleep twice.  Needless to say we both slept in until 10.  But we both woke with runny nose and my head was feeling slightly heavy and cloudy.  And to make matters worst, something has broken me out on my back and upper shoulders!

Ugh, I just can't seem to get a break other than the kids being a little more subdued and calm today.  I'm hoping that these cold germs go away quickly.  I don't need this turning into anything more serious.  So, I've striped the beds, washed the covers and will be steaming the mattress, sanitizing pillows and Cloroxing counters and floors and Lysoling door handles, remotes and anything else we touch on a daily basis.

Stay well out there!  And wish me luck because I still have to find the time to add 10,000 words to my manuscript.  My creative juices are flowing and I want to get these last few chapters down before I forget them.  Happy Friday!
