I’m going to work harder on updating this blog more regularly. I have a hard time sharing personal thoughts on the web and it doesn’t seem anyone reads, anyway. But I’ve had a lot going on lately and have been told journaling is a great way to help deal – and I hate to write, I type much faster.
Today has been one of those days… you know, the kind that starts the night before? R2 woke up around 10:30 coughing and grunting and then proceeded to vomit all over herself while laying flat on her back. That was fun. NOT. Into the shower she went – and at this point the other two were awake.
Her loving daddy said he’d sleep with her so I could nurse the little and get her back to sleep. I had every intention of switching places with him but little would not go back to sleep, too much excitement. Plus there was the crazy thunderstorm going on.
So, yeah, Daddy didn’t get much sleep. Thankfully R2 only puked 2 more times, but Daddy still didn’t sleep well because as anyone who has ever slept next to a puking child can attest, you wake at their every peep/movement anticipating another round of puking.
R3’s dipes were nasty yesterday – you know, the kind you smell from a mile away, the siblings are begging you to change it and it just smells “sick” – and that has continued into today.
So today these are my tools:
On top of that, the massive thunderstorm has raged (it’s bad. DH’s parking lot at work was flooded to the point that cars were floating and/or had water inside). I went out to drain some of the water from the pool before it overflowed and ruined the liner. Then I put sausage on the stove and turned the oven on for biscuits. About 5 minutes later the power went out. *thud* We sat and sang songs and goofed off and it came back on about 30 minutes later and we were able to eat.
R2 slipped off and went to sleep in my bed without a word – unheard of. R3 and I joined her and took a 2.5 hour nap – that was lovely.
So, my day has gone back and forth between this
But at least this one is feeling better
and the rest of us seem to be ok… for now.
