I would say today was a good day. There were moments, but all in all, I'll stay positive and say it was a good day.
Yesterday was not a good day, at least not for me. I woke up and knew I was coming down with a flu, or the last week had kicked my ass. Either way, I had fever and chills, scratchy throat and just felt like crap. I tried to get through breakfast, but the thought of entertaining the kids on my own just seemed impossible. So I called in the reinforcements, aka my parents, and pronto, they whisked the girls off to a fantastic day of playing outside and a picnic in a park. I stayed in my pajamas all day and slept like I haven't slept in along time. In the afternoon, I went to pick the girls back up and we had a quick pasta dinner. When they went to bed at 7:30, so did I!
Today though, I woke up feeling much, much better. And when the phone rang mid-morning and a family from school was inviting us to join them at the local farm to get some apples, I took them up on their offer. The girls had a great time, since they each had a friend their age to play with. and J. their dad was more than willing to pick the girls up and stick them in the trees so they could grab the good apples. He's gonna have a sore back tomorrow!
On a completely unrelated topic, I can turn ANYTHING into a craft. My husband's IV wire is a bit long to be able to hook up to the bottles himself. But it dangles there and it gets caught in everything. They give him burn netting, but it gets nasty and dirty and stretched out on the first day. So, I present to you, homemade IV sleeves:
And now, in actually important, breaking bloggy news.... My buddy Mrs. Figby has been keeping a secret. Another blog. But now she's decided to let the world know. So if you've been wondering how she's doing, please visit her at Halcyon Mama (which by the way, I had to look up on Google, because I didn't know what it was....)
