A few years ago I decided that February is my least favorite month. In fact I really really don't like it at all. I'll refrain from using the word "hate" because, of course, there are worse things. Yes, there are worse things than a month that, although it is the shortest, seems to drag on forever making me think winter will never end. I'll tell you one thing worse than the month of February- having a stomach bug during the month of February. Yes, the kids are sick and it just doesn't want to go away. I think it's Rotavirus- if your kids have had it you know what I'm talking about. Apparently symptoms can last up to 9 days. Thankfully, in 2006 they started immunizing against certain types of Rota so I think maybe Ella won't get it. I feel so bad for the kids because Kate had to miss her last story time at the library yesterday. We are supposed to be going to a Valentine's party on Friday to meet a group of homeschoolers, but I don't think we'll be going! And we had big plans for Saturday too. Such a dissappointment for them! Well, today will be all about laundry, clorox wipes, jello, toast, sprite, and hopefully some naps! On the bright side, I am glad we're getting this over with now so we don't ruin the mini vacation we have planned with my parents at the end of the month. And I am SO GLAD we had wood floors put in the kids rooms a few months ago!

So you have time to blog but not to call your sister back, hmm? Just kidding! Sorry to hear sickness is overtaking your household. I'm very grateful that I haven't caught any of the nasty bugs going around up here. How are you feeling? And I agree, with the exception of Valentine's day, February is a very drab and dismal month. I'm trying to get Gems cancelled tonight because I am so sick of driving around on the ice!

I am SO with you....February is my LEAST favourite month. Have no idea why. I think I just need SPRING!

February certainly is terrible- but not as bad in balmy SC. Plus, Parker was born in February. And besides that we are coming to play in the snow there next FEB!
