sick of being sick

I haven't blogged in some time.. I wish I had a good excuse but I don't. We've endured some major snow here in central Arkansas over the past few weeks which was a change. Now, one week later it's in the upper 60's.. only in Arkansas!!

I have been under the weather the past week or so... I NEVER get sick. Typically I get a bad cold once a year that requires a shot in the rear and antibiotics along with some type of bronchitis. It never requires me to miss work or stop functioning I just feel blah.. Typically this always hits me in the fall, right before Christmas.. this one decided to wait until now and I'm on day 7 of antibiotics + a steroid shot and I'm still congested and hacking!! To top it off Ben's throat started hurting a few days ago which led to him feeling terrible!! They've seen a lot of strep in the ER so I self diagnosed him and put him on an antibiotic.. (who has time to go to the doctor??) he's slowly starting to feel better.. tough part is, he's in nursing school and cannot miss!! He had his last test today before they have their spring break next week so the timing worked out..

Speaking of nursing school, he's excelling like he always does!! Can't believe he'll be done in December.. it can't get here fast enough!!!

I'm waiting on a return call from the doctor to see what else we can do to get my illness under control.. we've got a lot coming in the next few weeks and I need to be healthy!!!!

My mom, Hannah (Wes's girlfriend), and Mrs. Jodi are in Atlanta visiting Wes this weekend. When they get back I'll steal some of Hanny's pictures to put up!!
