The very same day I wrote a post about missing our routine and some regularity, I came home from taking the kids to dance feeling horrible.
My temp was 103.6.
After two days of crazy fever Matt hauled me to the doctor and we realized I had strep throat! For the first time in my life!
I am glad not to have a reason to take antibiotics too frequently, but wow, are they amazing things. Monday night/most of Tuesday I really thought I might die (only a slight exaggeration) and by Thursday night I felt almost back to normal again.
I spent much of today catching up on things I completely failed to attend to last week. Now that my health has been restored I feel good about two things:
1) My family does, in fact, appreciate many of the little daily things I do for them.
2) They could get along with out me if I got hit by a bus tomorrow. Though it would probably take some adjusting.
So I'm working on getting back on track and I owe a big apology to anyone who has been waiting for me to reply about something - I'm on it!
