On our way to Sacramento

Am I doing something wrong? We've been sick alot this winter, almost constantly. Somehow I feel like I should be keeping my family healthy and I'm failing. I ask myself if I'm feeding them right, am I keeping the house clean enough, am I not washing their hands enough? I can't help but ask even though I know it's probably nothing I'm doing or not doing. My nose is chapped, my skin looks bad, everyones coughing. I feel like I just want to crawl in a hole and stay there awhile, heck this house has sort of been that for a few weeks now. On a bright note, I forced us all into the car today, out to the farmers market. It was bright and cold and felt great. We listened to the guitar man sing and I got all choked up and teary for a minute. It was a good day. Wish us health.

join the germ party. ours lasted 3 weeks and only now we're finally well (check my latest blog entry). just ride the wave(s) and you'll eventually get onshore (the wellness shore).

Oh, Heather, don't feel bad. You ARE a good mother (anyone can tell that from reading your blog. I think the fact that you question whether you are, means that you are because you're self-aware.)

We too are in the same boat. It's going on 2 weeks now and it seems like it won't end. I'm hoping the previous commenter is right about the 3 week limit. Everyone else I know is going through the same thing, though, so I don't feel like it's only us. It just seems to be a really bad season this year for bronchitis/flu/sinus infections. I hope you guys feel better soon.

I'm wishing you health big time! John M's sick on my end, but I hope it's wrapping up soon.
