Well, I thought that today we would be right back into our routine, but alas, we are all suffering the effects of a trip, specifically, some head cold/virus thing. I told you that Caleb started being sick while we were still in Colorado, and he was still running a fever and being really snuffly even this morning. He and Luke both woke up around 7:00 crying and fussing, so I gave both of them Motrin and told them to go back to sleep. Luke slept until 9:30 and seemed to feel better, although his fever came back up in the afternoon and he still is coughing. Caleb slept until we woke him up at 12:30 (gasp!), and he seems to have turned a corner! Jonathan started running a fever and coughing this evening, though, so it looks like it's one of those things everyone is going to get. Bob and I just have colds, so Bob stayed home from work today, which allowed me to run to Walmart to get Sudafed. While at Walmart, I noticed the big display of "Airborne" medicine and wondered if it really works. I mean, it seems like such a crock, but there is something about being on airplanes that makes everyone sick, and maybe just the psychosomatic effects of the medicine could be helpful in warding off viruses! Who knows. In the meantime, not much is getting done around here. Tomorrow HAS to be laundry day though, no matter how everyone, including me, feels!
