THE cold

Is officially kicking our arses!!

It entered Mr Man (I am guessing) around Sunday, proceeded to myself Monday evening and now Hubs is in the full throws of it. I hate this cold!

Monday night Mr Man and I got a total of 40 minutes of sleep. It was physically and emotionally exhausting. All I did was cry and pray that B would go to sleep. Hubs is out of the office, so I was flying solo.

Then yesterday my mom came over (thanks Mom) and let me take an hour or so break. She also bought a Vicks vapor nightlight. That thing was awesome!! And I also got some Lipton Noodle soup (the best soup) and a breather. PHew!

Last night was much better. Mr Man got some sleep, I got some sleep, and I have sanitized every darn thing that baby has touched. So I am praying this thing is on its way out.

According to the doc, it should leave our systems by the end of the weekend. We do have a virus and really there is nothing we can do but sleep and make sure we have plenty of fluids. Easier said than done, especially when a 6 moth old doesn't understand why he can't breathe out of his nose.

Just an update... I am off to go chase Mr Mobile around the floor. Oh man, I hope he feels better, he sure is back to his loud self :D
