So my 500th post is coming up soon. I said I wanted to do a giveaway....and I was trying to figure out exactly what I was going to do, and lo and behold, I teamed up with CSN stores just in time! How exciting! So stay tuned for more info.....
The snow has finally stopped, for now. We're supposed to get another system like the one we just had this coming Sunday. Oh joy and happiness. If ya want a White Christmas, I'll give ya directions, no problem!
On a bit of a more serious note, we are all still fighting crud. Jacob is probably 90% better, which makes my life easier, to be sure. But Doug is still tired and hacking and fighting headaches...I'm trying to get him to go to the doctor, but he doesn't seem to think it's necessary.
Then there's me: I have to keep wiping out my immune system (plasmapheresis) so I don't go into myasthenic crisis, but then with everyone around me sick, I just stay run-down. Not a good situation. So I'm going to whine a minute. Feel free to skip to the end!
I'm quite frustrated and I must admit, a bit discouraged this year. I haven't been able to get to church more than twice in like 7 months. It's very difficult to go anywhere by myself. Even on a "good" day lately, it seems, it's just such an effort. Almost not worth trying. I'd love to go with Doug and Jacob, but if I put Jacob in Sunday school, he's just going to bring more germs home. If we try to keep him quiet during the service, we'll not get anything out of it anyway.
Then there's daycare. Jacob goes to "Auntie" Shawn's one day a week. He loves it. I love it. In the winter, everything gets multiplied by a million though, I swear. Where there were ten sick kids, now there are 10 million. Okay, you get my point. So now I have to decide if I should send Jacob as usual, and get a much needed break but expose myself to more sickness, or keep him home and we both suffer cabin fever.
I just feel hosed either way. I don't know anyone anymore who can babysit my child. I have a phone number for a young lady that was given to me by my PT., but she's in high school, so it wouldn't make a difference during the day. I won't leave Jacob with just anyone....even if I knew anyone (which goes back to not being able to get to church etc.).
It's just one big frustrating conundrum. Next time I will try to serve cheese with my whine. Sorry. : )
Please just keep me in your prayers that I don't lose my mind or hurt anyone. M'k? Thanks.
