Out of character.
I knew something was up when G dragged a sleeping bag and pillow out onto a warm deck and fell asleep - at 11 in the morning. Sure enough, high fever, major fatigue, and body aches followed within a few hours. After 24 hours of sick little boy #1, A started crying that his body hurt and had a high fever. We changed our weekend plans and instead snuggled on the couch, read books, kept cool cloths close at hand, and watched a few movies. G felt a bit better by Saturday afternoon, but A was hit a little harder.
After several days spent at home, the boys wanted to get out. Today was a very windy day, which meant we could get outside without being eaten alive by black swarming clouds of blood thirsty mosquitoes! Yay! We went for a walk at a local park and I saw something I rarely (if ever) see::
A walked slowly up the rock steps.
Both boys sat on the bench.
The boys sat on the ground and just looked out at the view.
G threw a few rocks into the pond, but then stopped. A didn't throw any rocks.
The boys are both usually go go go high energy kids, so we could definitely tell that those are some worn out little guys. I sure hope they feel back to their spunky selves soon.
Now as for me, I think I escaped the mystery virus, but have been hit with intense allergies. So bad that I pinched a nerve in my neck, cannot move my head, and have a big muscle spasm in the back of my neck every time I swallow. I feel ridiculously out of whack! Rain is here tonight, though, and hopefully will wash away all that pollen.
Looking forward to a new week!
