365 : Project Life Update


My Project Life for this week is going to be all about prescriptions, medications, and doctor's visits. An ear infection for Anna and strep throat for me and a cold for Simon and lots of work for Chris (who somehow managed to miss this super-fun being sick experience).

Looking forward to a healthy week next week and getting back to work. I like work.

Regularly scheduled giveaways coming tomorrow morning.

    Glad you’re all feeling better–that’s almost too too much! I guess it’s SORT OF better getting it over at once than dragging it all out for weeks while everyone takes turns…sort of!

    This is worldwide I guess?? My family has the same, last week it was my dh, ds and me, and now it is dd, who went from fine to a ruptured eardrum in a couple of hours!

    Get better Ali and family! Strep throat is HORRIBLE! You’d think an adult would handle it better than a kid, but somehow it’s worse!!

    I loved your link, Pioneer Woman and her cookbook. Don’t know how you have time to find all these great sites. You and kiddos, Get Well Soon.

    I hope everyone gets better quickly. I wouldn’t have thought of using all these bits of ephemera for the 365 project. I like the idea and think it makes sense, since it is part of life. Thanks for the inspiration and sharing!

    ReNi said…

    Hope everyone is getting better.
    Poor Anna reminds me of my little sister – she had lots of ear infections that poor little thing (now she’s in her 20ies ;) )
    Feel better soon.

    I hope you 3 get well soon.

    My project life for this week is also about illness…I’ve done what you did, and saved a couple tablet containers and Nyquil wrappers for my book. Ugh! But this will definitely show an accurate protrayal of a-day-in-the-life! :) Hope you guys are feeling better soon…I managed, somehow, to keep my son illness free. Since my husband is deployed, I’m the only one to do everything, but luckily the Germ Monster only seemed to strike my bedroom. :)

    Laurie said…

    I hope you are feeling better. I’ve had strep throat as an adult and it was horrible. Usually, though, once the antibiotics kicked in, I felt better pretty quickly. I hope that’s true in your case. Hope the kids are feeling better too.

    get well!!! hope you have a better weekend :)

    So sorry you’re still infected with the ‘ick’.
    We had what sounds like the same strain of gross here in Jersey. Of course when you have 6 kids, it has a tendancy to morph with each victim… and maybe even go around twice- fun.
    I will pray one go around it all you guys get!
    Once is enough!

    Karen G said…

    Ugh. Hope you and the kids feel better Really soon! Sick kidlets are a handful when Mama is healthy, but when a Mama is sick too and there aren’t any sick days for a Mama to take, it can be downright exhausting!! I’m impressed that you can even dial in an idea for scrapping. May all those little bugs go away fast and leave nothing but healthy smiles for you all! :>

    We’ve had a yuckky stomach bug ripping through our house this week…my husband was spared the illness(so far), too. We had two snow days so it came at a pretty good time for not missing too much more school. Hope you and your crew are feeling better soon!

  • 32.
    SandraL said…

    My baby granddaughter has a stomach virus so I feel for you. Hope you and your family get better real soon!

    melissa said…

    I am right here with you. I have my husband and 7 year old with a sinus infection and on antibiotics, and I just returned from the dr. with my 16 year old. She has tonsillitis and NO medication.
    It is so funny to see the Kroger logo on your medication. My father worked there from the time he was 17 until 48 years of age. I grew up with “krogers”.. Haven’t seen that in awhile.
    Have a good weekend. Feel better and rest.

    Laura.K said…

    Oh, get well soon. All of you.
    We had 2 weeks of sick people: my son, my huby, me, my friend, her daughter (they visit us), and some other friends. We thought is over, but my friend got it. It was horrible.

    Kimberly said…

    That’s a lot of stuff to deal with…icky! But I LOVE seeing the Choice teabag in your photo!!

    Bev Mascara said…

    No one ever told us that Moms get sick too, right? Hang in there Mommy, you are the pivot that everyone moves around. God Bless you and your family and may the Lord send His healing Blessing now.

  • 37.
    Christine said…

    Hope you all get better soon…..we like you working too!

    Terri Q said…

    Rough week – but there is hope because my DAFFODILS are BLOOMING, the SUN is SHINING (at least in Oklahoma)and SPRING is definitely on the way. Hope you feel better soon.

  • 39.
    Carrie P said…

    So sorry, hope you’re all on the mend.
    It was a gray here, somehow it’s easier to be sick when it’s gray!

    Donna said…

    Nothing makes you appreciate the joy of feeling healthy like being sick can. It is such a reminder to thank God for our daily blessing of good health when we are healthy!

    Lyn McEnaney said…

    ugh. At my house, the husband gets it later, mutates the virus, and gives it back to me so I get to have it twice. Hopefully that will not happen at your house!

    Michelle said…

    Becky said…

    I’m SO sorry – being sick is horrible. Having sick kids on top of the is a nightmare.

  • 50.

    Wow, you mentioned you and the kiddos were sick, but I didn’t realize you all were THAT sick :( (
    So glad you’re on the mend!
