Here Comes the Sun

I do enjoy the rain, but I really needed some sunshine in my life. After taking Kaylie to the doctor Friday I started getting that tingly feeling in my throat. By Saturday morning I was feeling full blown horrible. Sunday I ran a fever most of the day. I felt like I was in a fog. I stayed in from work today, and I still don't feel 100 percent. I am starting to wonder if the junk in my nose and throat really has an end. My mom was nice and took the kids today so i could actually sleep. I haven't been sick like this in awhile. I get colds here and there, but this just sucks the life out of me. I could wake up from 10 hours of sleep and then go right back to bed. I hate feeling that way because I detest sleeping the day away. I am trying to keep myself from overdoing it today. With the kids gone and the sun shining I am tempted to clean house, but then I would just collapse again if I even made it that far. Chris was a wonderful husband and took care of me all weekend as well as making sure Kaylie didn't overdo it since she was starting to feel better. I debated on and off all day yesterday whether to stay home from work. We get no sick time at work and if we are sick we have to use vacation time. Because I used everything I had when Micah was born I have nothing until this September. I know we can make it with less income, but it throws the budget a little. Yesterday an old family friend came to visit my dad. We were going to try and make it by to say hi, but I was obviously feeling too yucky to go anywhere. We haven't seen this man in years, but he always told my parents he felt bad because he had not given us a wedding present. This was no big deal to us as six years have come and gone and it is not something I ever think about. Well my mom called me after he left and informed me he had left a substantial monetary gift. This was more than what it would take to make up the difference of me staying home one day. Wow, what a blessing! I have said it before, but I will say it again. God is so faithful even in the small things. Now I am going to get back to resting so I can be ready when my kiddos come home. Have a great week everyone
