It's a dreary Thursday...

Rainy days are not my favorite unless I'm going to be staying inside and able to snuggle under a cozy blanket with a good book or magazine and my favorite hot drink. Today, although I want to do that, I haven't been able to.

I got up today to take #2 and #3 to daycare (yes, sometimes I refer to my children by their birth order number!). As I was getting them ready to go... ut oh, let me re-phrase that: As the teenager was getting them dressed I noticed that #3 was dragging around. She didn't want to get up, the first thing she asked for was juice when she normally just wants to eat and while eating she laid her head on the table.

After she was dressed she laid on the couch and went to sleep. Hmmm? I asked her a few questions. Yes, for stomach ache. And yes for headache. On the way to the sitter she just kind of stared into space and then said she didn't want to go. She didn't have a fever, vomiting or anything, but she was so out of it that I said okay she could stay with me.

After dropping off #2, I made my way to the next destination while calling the doctor's office. By this time it's raining even more.

My second errand for the day was stopping off to talk to a friend's mom who is going to help me out with #4 two days per week! Yippee!! (More on that later.) While there #3 fell asleep in #1's (the teenager) arms.

So besides the seemingly never-ending rain I have such a pitiful little person on my hands. She -- who has now said yes to a sore throat -- hasn't caused one bit of trouble except to decide she wanted more soup and then got to the table only to decide she didn't want the soup. Oh my, poor thing!

Now, it's time for me to venture back outside to the doctor's office. I hope it isn't one of three strains of flu that I've heard is going around.
