Rainy Saturday Morning

Wow! Another crazy busy week. Some days I can barely catch my breath. Sunday we went to the pumpkin patch (pics on children's blog) and had company for the night. Doris, Kristi, Kayla, Monea, and Nate all came early Sunday to spend the day and night with us all.

The children have caught the stupid cold going around, but Isaac was REALLY struggling to breath so Monday I took him to the doctor. They diagnosed him with asthma....and pretty bad at that. So he is now on two different inhalers. (Again, update on children's blog.) Part of my daily routine is now to hold down a screaming kicking child to give him his doses. He hates it and I literally have to practically sit on him. He is too strong, and if he moves and the mouth piece they gave me for him moves, he needs another dose. Ugh!

Every single day this week has been busy for work here at the complex. And being as the children are sick, it makes it even harder to do the work. Wednesday I was cleaning an apartment, and for the first 20 mins the children were fine, but after that because they just didn't feel good and were cranky, I had to listen to them scream and cry for another hour. Finally I couldn't take it any longer and took them home. I love that I can work with them with me, but some days it is so much harder. On top of that I have caught the kids cold, so I dont' have my usual energy.

Today Lenny has school, and my plan was to get caught up on housework, since I have been slacking on that this week. I dont' have my energy, and I have been so busy that I can't do everything. So something needs to slide...and better housework than my job and everything else I am trying to keep balanced. Anyway...probably won't catch up on the house today because I still have to work. Hopefully the children cooperate and I can get finished up quick.

Other than that, tomorrow hopefully will be to relax and watch some football, then all the craziness starts again on Monday. Hopefully I have more energy by then!!!
