I wrote to the Real Savvy Peops and this was their response:
"Yes, every vote counts (member or not)"
So, keep the votes coming. (also hit VOTE HERE on the sidebar)
Today is my first since Saturday that I am alone with my children. The fever part (which is really the hardest part of this whole ordeal), is a lot more under control, and the knives in the throat are dulling a bit. I am so grateful to my DH for taking such great care of all of us the entire LONG weekend. I don't know what I would have done without him, probably melted into a puddle of my own tears.
Having kids when you are THAT incapacitated is so hard. I can barely match their energy as it is, but add the debilitating fever and it's over. Now I just hope they don't get it too, although I don't think it hits them quite as hard as us wussy adults.
My almost-2-year-old (5 days to go), has been put on hold for a job for Toys r Us on Wed. This is the first time she has been put on hold for a while. That would be a good job to ease back into life with, because it would be driving, which is always easier (thank you DVD player), and there will be a wrangler their who can "deal" with her on set. I had a chance to wrangle on Wednesday, but I decided the knives in the throat would not be all gone by then, and so I said, Thanks, but NO THANKS.
So far my kids are being really good, coloring and stripping all dolls of their clothes (2-year-old), while listening to music. I can handle this pace. Oh, I just looked at the time, it's only 8 AM....I have a long day ahead of me.
