Hope for tomorrow

Today was the strangest day. I woke up with a terrible headache, the remains of this virus passing through our family, and Dave was kind enough to work from home so I could take it easy.

He is a wonderful husband. Have I ever mentioned that before? :)

I spent way too much of the day sleeping, and the rest of the day, laying in bed. This headache just won't give it up. And there is only so much you can do in bed. I have to admit, I am already bored, even with my laptop. I would make a terrible bedrest patient if I were pregnant. Which I am not, by the way. :) Oh, but I guess I've already experienced bedrest when I was pregnant with Ethan, didn't I? Well, those who know me can tell you, I didn't do very well with that either.

All I can think about while I lay here is, I am getting so far behind!

We have been sick for a week, and the house definitely shows it.

So tomorrow I am getting out of this bed, headache or not, and finishing this week off right. Here is my plan:
  • Wash everyone's sheets - because no one feels healthy when they are sleeping on germy sheets
  • Wipe down the toilets, faucets and door nobs with Clorox bleach solution - we are getting this house germ free.
  • Make all the beds and tidy everyone's rooms
  • Wipe down all the counter tops
  • Iron Dave's shirts for the week
  • Spend time in the backyard with the boys - it's going to be sunny and 72 here tomorrow!
Think I can do it? Hmmm....I'm not sure either, but I am praying for health and strength to start moving again.

Hope all the rest of you are well!

Edited: Wow, I got it all done by 1 pm! Woohoo! I have to admit though, I still don't feel very well - just achy and tired, mainly - so I think I'm going to take a nap with my kiddos. :)
