Happy Monday! What a week!!!!! We've had snow. Blowing, drifting, accident causing snow. I swear I have never been so nervous waiting for my husband get home until this crazy winter. We've been to the doctors office twice - once with L and then the second time was with all 5 (and my mom)! Not looking forward to doing that again anytime in the near future. Currently I have all five kids on antibiotics for a mixture of bronchitis and ear infections. I myself am headed in to the doctor today for this lovely head cold/sinus thing I've got going on. I pulled the big guns though this time and am going to an actual Ear-Nose-Throat doctor to see what we can do about this 'chronic' sinus infection. Last time I went to ENT I wanted to punch the man in the face (I am not a violent person by any mean)...let just say I didn't know I had a problem until he got finished fixing it. Hoping that this trip is more relaxed and productive.
The weather: F.R.I.G.I.D.!!!!!!!! It's going to be in the negatives for the next few days. And more snow is predicted. I am pretty sure Monday and Tuesday its going to be warmer in Alaska than it will be here in Northwest Indiana.
