Today I am sick. I've been feeling "ishy" (as my mother-in-law says) for several days now, spending more time than usual in bed. But today I woke up even worse. Being sick is no fun. Being sick as a mom is even worse...but I'm thankful for my mother-in-law who has spent a good amount of time this week playing with Susanna, has taken her for the day, and came over this morning to fix breakfast for the kids.

Luke is out with Daddy at our last pumpkin party being Davy Crockett...and I don't get to see him today :( The weather is beautiful, there is a huge turn out again (thank You, God!), we had two birthday parties there, but I'm not.

I spent most of the morning in bed and made the mistake of getting up around 1:00 this afternoon when I woke up after a heavy sweat (and finally a full hour of no phone calls! The phone just didn't stop ringing this morning!!!). I felt okay for a bit but am feeling a bit woozy again, so I'll be tucked under the sheets again soon.

I'm bummed. Not just cuz I'm sick, this isn't a pity party for me (well, okay, maybe a little bit it is!), but we had planned to leave tomorrow after church for Gretna, NE, home of Vala's Pumpkin Patch, THE biggest pumpin festival in the world. We were going to return Tuesday evening. No way I'll be up to going now.

Keep us in your's hard around the house when Mama's not well, but I've had some great help from friends over the last few days, and especially from Tony and Mama Carter. Luke woke up yesterday with a headache and dry heaves, but a quick trip to the clinic determined his insides seemed fine...and watching him rushing all over today again proved the same!'s off to bed I go. Again.

The older you get, the longer it takes to recoperate! So I guess the best solution it to always try to stay healthy. I feel for you. Had a touch of something on Thurs. and seems like again this afternoon! Hope you're feeling better by now.

Thank God for your faithful elp...Tony and his mom! Wish I were there to help also.

Whew! I'm glad this stuff doesn't travel over the internet! I can't afford to have what you have right now. :) Hope you feel better soon!
