This is my 700th Post, Yo

Unfortunately, this big 700th post milestone will be glossed over.
Why?

Yesterday, you people learned I was sick.
Today I am worse.

But what is worse than being sick with no sign of wellness in sight?
Being a mother and being sick.

What is worse than being a mother and being sick?
Having your husband out of the country, being a mother, and being sick.

What is worse than having your husband out of the country, being a mother, and being sick?
Knowing that tomorrow your child is having a birthday party here at the house, having your husband out of the country, being a mother, and being sick.

Luckily, I have friends. And family. And I have decided not to suffer alone. I've called people for help (who are coming!), so hopefully everything will be as it should and I won't have to end up hospitalized because I did too much.
Ha! Who am I kidding? I've done nothing since Sunday night....

P.S. Who knew the house could become such a trash hole right in front of my face?

Wow looks like that is soooo much work. I hate being all those things. But I hate it worse when I am sick and the kids are sick and my husband gets sick because it is always the mother who has to function! Don't ask me why it is written somewhere~ Felling sorry for you~ Best of luck and there is always that great saying...this too shall pass!

So sorry you're still sick! What's worse than all those? Adding pregnancy to the mix! I'm glad you have some peeps to help you out. Get better soon!

Dang it, girl. I'm sorry you are worse, and sorry I don't live just that tiny bit closer to be able to help.

700, though. That's cool enough to post about.

Where have you been? Where have I been? Why do you all of a sudden have 7 posts that I missed?

OK, I'm gonna read them all but if I don't comment just assume a big ol' "I read this post, every word" from me.

And I'm so sorry you're sick.

If it makes you feel any better, my house becomes a trash hole right in front of my face all the time, and I'm NOT sick.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Wish I was close enough to help you! Love coming your way.....now.

Does this mean now you're part of the 700 club?

My house is a big ol' trash hole and I'm perfectly healthy. Physically.

Flip Flop--
DOH! Why didn't I think to add pregnancy to that!? You are sooooo right! If I could knock myself out with Nyquil each night, I can guarantee you I wouldn't still feel so cruddy...
