Flu Season

Ugh! London goes to a 3 day a week 9am-12pm preschool program, so I expected him to get sick a fair amount this year. It builds up his immune system for kindergarten right? Well little did I know it would build up MY immune system too.

Last Thursday, Mike got the flu...and that night looked alot like this for us.

Wine for me, Nyquil for him.

Mike came in from work, chugged some Nyquil, and went to bed for the night at 5pm. He got a full 13 hours of sleep, and yes I was a little jealous.

London has been sick for pretty much 5 weeks straight, yeah it SUCKS!  I think he had it first in the middle of his antibiotics for his ear infection because he had one random day of fever. 

Then...Oh, yes there is a THEN!.... I got it! WTF? Where are the keys you are supposed to use to symbolize cuss words %&$^#%@ ^#&%@((@%!%*^)*#)*(&@! Ahhh, there they are. 

What exactly was the point of me getting a flu shot after having Holden? Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know there are different strains of the flu. And I know the flu shot doesn't guarantee that you won't get it, but it would have been really nice if it had worked. I have a 4 week old. I don't get Nyquil and 13 hours of sleep. I still have to wake up every 2-3 hours to breastfeed a baby. And London still wants his already tired Mommy to be able to play with him. I can fake it most of the time thanks to the miracle of caffeine, but exhaustion and the flu don't leave me with much besides a short temper. 

Thank goodness Mike was home over the weekend to really pitch in and take care of London. Holden and I got to lay in the bed most of the weekend. I'm finally feeling better, which is great because Mike was back at work today, so I was too. 

I was looking for some Flu humor on google and found this one. It was too good not to post. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE damnyouautocorrect.com ?

I think this flu shot thing is BS. I got mine on Thursday and felt like crap for the next 3 days. WTF was the point?!?!

I had my son in daycare since he was 6 months old and my daughter in daycare since she was 4 months old. It has been a constant stream of snotty noses since then. You either suffer now or suffer later, but either way, you suffer. It's inevitable.
