I finished my prescription of Penicillin on Monday and on Wednesday my throat starting hurting again and yesterday morning it was impossible to swallow. Strep is back. I phoned my doctor and had him refill my prescription. At least this time it’s not coupled with the flu!! My supervisor told me to stay home yesterday as I’m a tad contagious – I wonder if she’ll make me stay home today???

With the incredible winter storm we had yesterday I’m surprised that anything would be open. All schools are closed in our area. Power lines were downed, snapped like twigs, through the night because of the ice rain. It was an amazing storm yesterday. March has certainly come in like a lion!

With all that’s been going on in my house (Liam had hand, mouth & foot disease for a week, Jake had a bulging ear infection and myself having strep twice in a row) I forgot that today is the start of the Ultimate Blog Party over at 5 Minutes for Mom‘s site. Sorry you had to come by on such a down day, I’ll get in the partying mood soon I promise… I’m usually a lot more lively. It’s a good thing that the party goes until next Friday. The great thing is… you don’t have to get all dressed up for this party. PJ’s and curlers are acceptable attire and of course the drink of the day is a biggest cup of Joe you can find.

Here’s a quick snippet on me: I’m a mother of 4 (8yrs, 6yrs, 4yrs & 18 months) who works outside and inside the home, I haven’t slept through the night in what seems like years and I’m married to the pastor. Take a look around and you’ll get a better glimpse of Shasher’s life.

If you’ve come by to party, sign the guest book (that’s code for leave a comment) and let me know you were here.


I'm the Cool Mom of 4, Married to the Preacher Man, but at times I'm a little more Sass than Saint!
