And the streak continues...

Just as I am starting to feel better (my energy finally started coming back late last night), Jake is horribly ill. He started feeling sick around 4 or 5p last night and has gone down hill since. Poor guy....I know exactly how he feels, because that is how I was feeling last week.

Since I finally woke up with some energy today (I'm shocked, it's been over 2 weeks since I've had energy to do anything) I've been trying to get things done around the house. I spent the morning finishing up thank you cards, working on laundry, going through the girls' clothes to get rid of things that are too small and purging toys that haven't been played with in several months. So by noon I had gotten A LOT done, which was good because that was about the time that the pelvic pain wasn't letting me get any more done. I'm taking a small break now until the medication starts to kick in. Then I need to head upstairs and fold that laundry I've been working on. Fun, FUN!

Peder has been really cute today, taking care of his daddy. He always takes care of us when we aren't feeling well. If we fall asleep on the couch he will bring a blankie over and tuck us in. Every time Jake coughs Peder asks him, "Daddy are you ok?" He really is the sweetest, most caring boy I have ever encountered. Mari has been snuggling Daddy a lot and Emmy will come over and just hand out a big hug. Everyone is so stinkin' cute, it's SO easy to love them.

So here's hoping that Jake has a speedy recovery and that Peder, Emmy and Mari are on the tail end of their colds. I would really love for everyone to be healthy a couple of days before Emmy's surgery so that is a weight off of my mind.
