*sigh* A terrible dinner night!

I have two sick kids. Joshua, my 6 1/2 year old, has a really bad cold that has really taken him down. Remember, he's my allergy nightmare. As soon as my insurance kicks in with my new job, I'll be taking him to a good doctor that can walk us through more complete allergy testing. The school he goes to is pretty old and has carpet in there that is probably older than I am (which means that dinosaurs probably hammered it down!). Since the weather has been cool this past week, the heat has been on in the school and it really took it's toll on Joshua. I've had to increase his allergy meds and now he is very weepy and whiney.

Megan has been running low grade fevers for two days. Her class of 16 kids was down to about 3 on Friday. There are so many viruses running around. Not to mention the flu...we've seen a 200% increase in positive flu swabs in the past week. I had to do some emergency in-services with the nurses, reminding them to protect themselves with masks if they need to.

My husband isn't home tonight. It's just me and the munchkins. On a whim, I ordered pizza. Without thinking, I ate 3 pieces - nearly 1000 calories and 10 grams of fat. Yipes.

*I will not beat myself up! I will not beat myself up! I will not beat myself up!* Instead, I'll let Jillian do it, when I Shred after putting the kids to bed.

We had pizza last week too... must be something with tending to sick kids. No remaining energy to prepare a healthy dinner. We'll survive :)
