An exhausting kick off
2008 is starting with a huge wimper in our house as both girls battle some bug "that is going around and will last for a few days." New Year's Eve plans had to be abandoned and I attempted to go to bed early only to be woken constantly throughout the night by one or both who were sniffling, sneezing, coughing and I'm sure aching and all I could do was hold them and wipe away the goop.
Then we hosted an open house on New Year's Day and the baby was just a mess the whole time. Most of the day, actually. And now the sun doesn't rise for a couple more hours and I already know I won't be getting any work done today as the baby sits next to me surely to doze off just as big girl wakes and my body is aching with fighting this thing off. I keep chanting "I better not get it."
But I swear I'm trying to smile. Family is still in town w/ big bro in from Maui and was more than happy to shovel all of the snow yesterday while hubby and I dealt with the girls. Haha, and I'm feeling all babbly b/c I haven't had more than 40 mintues sleep at a time for two nights now. Yaawwwnnnnnn. Too funny, though, was the cat nap I tried to take on the floor at this time yesterday morning while the girls played their new *pink* drum kit right by my head. Hubby said it didn't even phase me. I thought my head was pounding from exhaustion!!
