Black Cloud

Have you ever felt like you have had a black cloud hanging over you? I have had a black cloud for some time now. In fact this whole family has. We just can't seem to catch a break.

We have just had a bad string of bad luck. Things keep breaking and we just can't seem to get over the cold that is plaguing this house.

Addie got sick over a month ago which she still has a cough from that, but it's finally much better. That was a lot of days of little sleep for us because she was constantly coughing all night.

I dislocated my knee (again a blog is coming about that after Thanksgiving). Then I got a horrible cold which stuck around for a couple weeks. Very little sleep again.

Rob got a short-lived cold but it has been crunch time for him at work.

Connor just got a cold about a week ago. Even less sleep for us. He has mucus so high in his nose that we can't even help him by getting it out. He wakes up coughing then crying because he's frustrated. It sometimes makes him throw up which sounds like he's choking every time. Finally his nose started running some so we thought he was getting better until he started getting a low-grade fever and suddenly a rash popped up. Then the rash went away. Then came back in a different location then it was gone again then back again. We ended up taking him to the doctor. Turns out he has an ear infection on top of his cold which manifested itself into the rash. Weird.

So we joke that we have a black cloud hanging over us. We are all really tired too. It's been a long time of little sleep. So if my blogs seem a little scattered and I don't make much sense then that's why. It's been a long string of little sleep and a lot of sick.

But we are all still hanging in there and determined to shed our black cloud.
