Thankful Thursday

What a week, oh wait we are over a week now. It started last Wednesday when my son passed out in the bathroom. He was dehydrated and had strep. That turned into three other kids being treated for strep. On Saturday night it hit me. I do not think anyone told this cold that moms are not allowed to get sick. On Monday another child got the cold. On Wednesday another child had to be taken back to the doctor and he now has croup. I did not realize big kids got croup. I did learn something. The doctor said putting him in a steamy bathroom was great. He then said another way to handle it is just to wrap them in a blanket and take them outside in the cold for a couple of minutes. As much as I would like to set and complain it could so be worse. We have great health insurance when we need it and amazing oils to help us stay healthy. The baby is healthy and we have a warm house that we do not have to leave. Do you think my week has been frustrating? You should hear about my husbands. He had to go away for work for a few days. Or at least it was only suppose to be a few days. This is how it has gone so far. He arrived Monday to realize the sprinkler system was frozen (hello it is 66 degrees there). So Monday he was able to work about 3 hours before they came in and said they were shutting post down for 2 days because of weather. So he sets in his hotel for two weeks. He goes back to work today only to find out the electricity is not working. They were finally able to work this afternoon. I am curious, do you think he will ever be able to finish his job and come home. To keep me laughing my husband sends me pictures of his amazing hotel and the amazing meals they are serving him and I send him pictures of what the kids are breaking. I think that is a good compromise.
