The sickies are taking over my house! This has not been a fun week for us. First, Bryce woke up Monday morning barking like a sick seal, and he was diagnosed with Croup. On Tuesday, I wasn't feeling so hot and by noon, I felt like I was knocking on death's door. I laid around on the couch all night Tuesday night with a fever, and ended up at urgent care yesterday. I got a Z-pack and already feel so much better. This morning Rylie woke up with a fever. We went to the pediatrician a little bit ago and she has an ear infection. I gave her the first dose of her antibiotics and now she is taking a nap.
This is the WORST week this could have happened! The main reason being that Rylie's birthday is tomorrow, and we have 25 kids coming to her party on Saturday. Hopefully the antibiotics kick in and get her well, FAST! The other reason is that this is my busiest time at work. I'm an accountant, and the second week of each month is my busiest week. I have several reports that need to be done to report the prior month's numbers, and I have a limited window to do those reports in. I have basically been out all week, except for a few hours Tuesday morning when I was doing everything I could to stay awake at my desk. Luckily my boss is very understanding and knows there isn't much I can do, but those reports still have to get done. Needless to say, I'll be at work most of this weekend.
I really hate this time of the year. It seems like the first few weeks in January is when this stuff always strikes. How many of you are home with sick kids this week? For those of you who have escaped the wrath, I hope you all stay well! This is certainly no fun.
