What a beautiful sight out the window this morning, glad I didn't have to go out in it though.
So remember how I said I was going to complain less this year?....well I think I have been doing quite well so far.
However today has been a bomb so please, bear with me. I have been surprisingly calm all day, and although I had a few close to crying moments, my insides were pretty peaceful. Someone musta been praying for me today!
It started off with little Ethan not feeling well, he had a bit of a cough and runny nose but then by noon was getting kinda warm. He was clingy and crabby so much so that I only had a few bites of egg for breakfast a slice of turkey sandwich meat and a wedge of cucumber for lunch---stolen from a little persons plate---and that was it till Dave came to the rescue at 6pm with a free pizza from the restaurant he was doing some contract work at.
The second thing was finding out that my husband is getting shipped out of town for a week on business, and has to leave this coming Sunday!
I have been contemplating whether I should go with him or not but he is going to LaRonge and my idea of a winter vacation is NOT the north pole!!!!!!!!!
So what do I do when I am all depressed and starving and have a fussy sick child hanging off my hip?
Try to cheer myself up, by doing crazy make-up and hair and then looking in the mirror for a laugh.
Emily stopped over for a few hours while Phil went to his tutors so she broke up my day by playing with Kaitlyn......as she later told me it was more like job shadowing.
They had a few tea parties while I rocked Ethan. By this time he had thrown up a few times and was all dosed up with Tylenol for his fever and just wanted to be held and rocked.
Tea with the animals and a dance party after. Thank you so much Emily for coming over, even if it felt more like job shadowing with all the spilled tea you had to mop up you really are so great with Kaitlyn!
Still in the rocker. By this time my butt was numb and my bladder the size of a basketball. I had been sitting rocking Ethan for 5 hours and Kaitlyn kept trying to climb on me saying, "I'm soooo tired mommy" and wanting to cuddle. She finally made it onto my lap and fell asleep.
Big mistake---it was 5pm!
See what time this post was published at? Ya! She finally went to bed after 12:30. We still really have not adjusted from our Christmas trip with sleeping patterns yet. There have been a few Ok nights and that's it.
Ethan has been up every 30 mins since around 9, so now I finally get a moment, and I NEED it! I don't care I have to chug an extra coffee in the morning, this is my sanity!
I totally don't know how I am going to manage next week alone (choking back a sob now)
I cannot imagine a day without Dave here let alone a whole week! Aaaggggghhh!!
