Yesterday, or was it two days mom came up to Ava and sang her this song. It totally describes how the last month of our lives have felt.

"Gloom, despair and agony on me-e!
Deep dark depression, excessive misery-y!
If it weren't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all!
Gloom, despair and agony on me-e-e!"
It seems the past month, each one of us have had a week of yucky sickness. Chris had a bronchial/ear infection and then Ava got croup, and then Simon got a wicked ear infection. Ava is also terrified of having bowel movements, and that is causing her to be very sick as well. Her digestive system is screwed up big time. She's not eating more than once a day, and has lost a lot of weight. I'm taking her back into the doctor tomorrow in hopes of getting some answers. This will be the fourth time we've been to the doctor in the last 3 weeks. I'm grateful for my job and the wonderful insurance that Inwest provides. It's still expensive since we're on an HSA, but considering the amount of illness our family has had this year...worth every penny. So, needless to say, I've been exhausted, annoyed at life and feeling quite sorry for myself. When my mom belted the song from HeHaw it made me laugh at myself. Thanks mom, for giving me some perspective.

I'm in a reading mood. Maybe it's because I've been trapped indoors thanks to the nasty cold weather we've had lately. Indoors and without playdates to keep us from sharing germs. I look forward to finding a good read. Enriching my mind. etc. etc. and warmer days and no longer needing to watch the same 10 movies over and over and over and ...

perhaps you are becoming and old prude who likes to stay in doors and read. Im teasing! I really think that is an older age thing. I am finding I like reading more lately too though I still dont do much of it.

I'm glad you are all feeling a little better. Wish I was closer to help out. We're still stuck in Happy Valley. Sometimes I think we'll be here till we die..

We send our love and well-wishes. Get better, dang it!
