Down for 4 out of 5...but on the rise!

So our first day of school was August 8, 2011. The week went off without a hitch. Each day was more awesome than the last. Mandi cooperated well and was super excited about learning her "yetters". The twins adjusted well and were in good spirits. I was ecstatic. 'If each week is like this, I'm golden.' I thought. Then, Saturday the 13th rolled around and I was a little achy. I figured I was dehydrated. The whole week I was more focused on being prepared for the day than healthy for myself. I was staying up late, waking up early, barely eating during our lunch breaks and not drinking much either. In retrospect, I was wracking my immune system. I got sick. :-(

For four out of our five weeks in school, I've been sick. My husband was, according to the girls a great substitute! He was such an amazing help for all these weeks. He took over for me with great ease. I'm grateful for sure! Today, is September 9, and I'm finally out of the house and on with normal life. Being sick for one month was no fun. Glad that's behind me!
