cabin fever among other fevers

I got extremely behind in reading the Bible in 90 days.  I kind of have a good excuse and I kind of don't.  Fortunately I am almost caught up, not sure how considering I was 2 days behind this morning, but I breezed through Job and now I have 20 Psalms left and I am caught up.
I should have had my reading done since there hasn't been a lot to do around here since we keep getting dumped on with snow.  I am starting to think the tectonic plates magically moved us further north because it sure doesn't feel like we are in the mid-Atlantic anymore, it feels more like Michigan around here.  We got 12 inches a week ago, another few inches Tuesday into Wednesday and then 6 inches with some ice Friday into Saturday.  As a result I have been inside most of the time and should have plenty of time to read, yet the sick bug struck our house and dealing with the funk kept me from reading on some days.
I hope the illness is done.  Lance was sick a week ago Friday and then after 72 hours we thought we were home free, but then Lily started throwing up Wednesday afternoon and it wasn't pretty.  Thursday night/Friday morning Jeff came down with it.  Friday was the worse day, I was trapped inside, actually upstairs (in the playroom and lance's bedroom to keep the kids away from jeff and to allow him to sleep) all day!  We went out briefly to play in the snow, but it was snowing hard, it was cold, and trying to handle both kids by yourself is hard.  Friday was so long and rough.  Anyways, Saturday came and we enjoyed the snow, but in the back of my head I kept wondering if I was going to succumb to the stomach bug and that evening I did.  Praise God, I didn't throw-up, I hate, hate, hate throwing up, and I am so thankful I didn't, though I was still miserable, my body hurt so bad I couldn't sleep, but Sunday morning came, a new day and I slowly started to feel better.  So now we have all been sick (praying Lance's illness was the stomach bug and not something else) and we are ready for the germs to be gone.  I feel like we have been sick every other week since Thanksgiving, it stinks, I am so ready for spring.  So to make a long story short, There has been lots of laundry, watching tv, and resting, but not a lot of Bible reading.  I am thankful that I have been able to get almost caught up today because I really want to make it to the end.  So after a rough week, I am thankful I haven't fallen out of the race, okay race isn't the correct word, and I am still plugging along hoping I can get back into my early morning reading routine and have a healthy happy family again. 
18 books down!

I'm so sorry to hear that you've had such a rough time with illness. That always makes things difficult.

Glad you were able to make up some of the reading, and you're almost back on track.

May the Lord bless you this week as you read His Word.
