Call me the Grinch

Yeah, that's going to be me this year. Just to fill you in a bit without this being a completely depressing post... Ari was sick all weekend with extrememly high fevers and coughing, turns out he has RSV. Yay. Well, being that I've been the one cuddling and wiping noses and all that jazz I'm fairly sure I have it now too. I'm exhausted, very exhausted to the point where I can barely get myself off the sofa. I don't think I've ever been this tired. I'm sure being pregnant isn't helping in the energy department but seriously today all I want to do is curl up in a ball and pass out.

So, to the Grinch part. I've decided that we are not sending out Christmas cards this year. We had the picture for it taken Friday but there's no way on Earth I have the energy to make and send however many cards are on my list. So... I'll be posting what was going to be our card here on the blog and emailing everyone the link. Sorry, it's the best I can do. Something has to give or I'm afraid I'll end up more sick than I need to be and this was it. I hope you all understand that I need to take care of myself and the little baby, the big baby (Ari) and Matt first. Don't hate me or if you do just don't tell me to my face!

I've also cancelled our Ohio Christmas trip. No way I'm taking a kid with a fever of 105 on an airplane... I'm sure you understand that one too! BTW, his fever is down to around 102-103 today so we're making progress but he's basically a bump on a log. I don't think he's played with a single toy yet today and he was asking to go to bed at 5:15 tonight! Poor baby. Cross your fingers that we all get over this ickiness and don't need to go back to the hospital!
