Mommy, I'm so tired.

We have our first fever of the season. Zaya has his annual case of bizarre strep throat. It's bizarre because he doesn't have a sore throat. In fact, he never has, and he's had strep every year now for the last three years. He just gets a fever. His throat is red, but it doesn't hurt him. This morning he broke out with hives suddenly on his back, but a little Benadryl knocked those puppies out. (I have a picture. I'm glad I took it, because the Benadryl made them disappear by the time we got to the doctor's office, and they always believe you so much more when you have photographic proof.)(And yes, I'm one of those moms. Get over it.)

He spent the day playing Endless Ocean on the Wii, which is a beautifully peaceful little game where you explore the ocean and discover new types of sea-life. He loves it, which is nice, because I much prefer it to the other games in his digital arsenal. After Daddy got home we had a nice supper, and now they're playing Mancala while Mim takes her bath. Then it's to bed, and praying for a good feverfree night.

Oh, and in other news, we are now the proud owners of a small chest freezer. It fits in the little place beside the door in our den as if it were made for it. Art plans to get a deer this year, so this'll be it's resting place.

Poor, little guy. It does look like he is trying to be brave, but the eyes are a little droopy. I'm glad you are keeping him home another day to recover.

He was very, very tired. I hope he gets a good night's rest.

Sad to hear Zaya's got strep. No fun. Hoping for a speedy recovery!

New freezer!! Yay!

Hope he is feeling better by now. We love Mancala here too.

We had that last year! For 6 weeks we passed around fevers and vomiting, noone had a sore throat, except Devon for a day or two, and it was strep for the whole family. Not cool.
Hopefully it passes by your family quickly.
