Retreat, who needs a retreat?

ME!!! But, it doesn't look like I'll be getting one this year. It's now 5:20 in the morning, the time I usually get up to go walking. However, I've been up multiple times tonight. Bethany has had a fever for 2 days. I was in denial. I kept thinking that if I just kept up with the Tylenol and ibuprofen she would be fine. Just a fever, nothing else...well...the fever won't go away. I was questioning last night whether I should take her to stay with my parents with this fever, but I thought that if they kept up with the meds, she'd be fine. Ok, now Abbigail has been up all night puking. I'm NOT taking that to Wichita. That is the last thing my dad needs right now! So...I'm not going to my retreat, or to visit my parents. I'll let them sleep a little longer, and then give them a call....Hey, I do get to go to the wrestling tournament now and see my son wrestle, that's a plus...
Ok, I'm having a bit of a pity party here...I guess you are all invited. I'm just going to make sure it's a SHORT party, then back to life!!

Andie, I'm so sorry you won't get your time away, but I admire the Mom you are so much. Your kids are very lucky. Actually, your whole family (extended too) is lucky to have you. I know you're all grown up, but it's hard, as your Aunt Patty, not to just say..."You're a good girl, Andie." Love you!!

I feel your pain. Brennan started Sunday nite (puking and diareha)missed 2 days school.Tues night Phil started (p/d) and then Becki Audrey, and Jon all spent the day at home Wed. Friday Rami, Ivy and Michelle woke up (p/d) and then ME Friday afternoon. So you didn't keep anything from Wichita but I really hope your dad and mom have missed out on all this yucky stuff. I'd been telling the girls that I couldn't get it because I'm on a antibodic for a cold (can't get and infection it might go to my new knee)but, as you know nothing works for this tummy stuff.
Hope the girls are feeling better quickly and no one else comes down with it. I ditto Patty Love ya Marilyn

PS we are leaving Mon back on the road but will be close to VC and we will be home for Easter.
