Last night, I stayed up until 12:45, until my eyes could stay open no longer and set my quiet little cell phone alarm to wake me an hour and a half later to give the breathing treatments. It's always easier for me to stay up than it is to get up, but my body was telling me, no go.

The good news: Alex is feeling better! Helped along with an antibiotic and lots of breathing treatments (and lots of cinnamon raisin toast with butter - wouldn't that make anyone feel better?!), she is almost back to her old self, dancing and giggling and showing us her fierce temper.

That's how long we have all been sick for. I can't believe it. It's just a never ending cycle here at the Ertel Zoo! Mike started it with a sinus cold, gave it to me and then the kids started shortly after. We have all gotten better in between, but then someone gives it back to someone else and the musical chairs of sickness continues...will the music ever really stop??! I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to spring - the windows open, flushing these germs out of our house for good. Because now I am starting to believe that spring is our only hope out of this.

Last week, when I woke up unable to get out of bed because I was so sick, Mike went into Super-Daddy mode.

or...Pancakes. As only a toddler could adorably call them.

I confess that our kids have been forced to inherit our hermit gene. Mike and I are homebodies in the most serious way possible. If they ever had Olympics for homebodies, that would be our sport. We are good at it...and love to be this way most of the time.
