I'm on day two of the full blown flu. Chest cough, runny AND stuffy nose, low fever, body aches, headache...the whole shebang. My daughter is 4 today (luckily party is Sunday) but I need to bake a cake. Hubby has malfunctions today (long work day) plus my kids have a 1/2 day...lol
Normally by now the house is completely done. But today I've only done the downstairs aside from mopping. I will get it done But in shifts...lol

I feel bad but i wish it wasn't a half day :/
Bad mom, I know.
Hopefully hubby will be home by 6:00...though I won't hold my breath.
Gave my daughter her gifts, making breakfast but just want to sleep.
Any home remedies to perk my energy during pregnancy...so safe?
I'm drinking earl grey tea with honey and milk.
Took Tylenol for fever. But any suggestions would be welcome here's a picture of the big4 year old and her gifts. :)

I thought all the moms on here were Supermoms thta even if they're having a major heart attack and are dying, they can manage to have a spotless house, cure all the world's problems and have Dinner on the table, and shuffle their 10 kids around.

You've got a bunch of kids, certainly you can think of something to keep them occupied so you can lay down, like a movie....!

Happy Birthday Adorable Girl! I hope you feel better. My only suggestion would have been the tea and honey. Honey's supposed to help, and even if it doesn't I always found tea and honey to be comforting when sick. I hope you feel better.
