Two things you might think to be mutually exclusive, huh? I'm just as surprised as you are!
First we had colds, and then Sean had pink eye, and then I had pink eye (with sooper-dooper designer drugs with a price to match, since I can't take just any old antibiotic eye drop), and then Brendan and I got this second cold that seems be really hanging around. :(
The thing is, I really don't feel terrible. But in the last few days, I've noticed an exhaustion that seems to stay with me (waking up for several hours in the middle of the night several nights in a row for no apparent reason might contribute to that).
And it occurred to me that if I just slowed down a little then I might actually finish recovering from this cold. My Type 1 Diabetic husband--who typically gets sicker, and for a longer time, than I do--is all done with it. But I'm not. I'm better, I'm recovering. But very, very sloooooowly.
Also, we get new floors in ONE WEEK! I've decided to try to rest for the next couple of days so I can get all the way better in order to work work work work all over again. It will help that my awesome mother-in-law will be here for a few days. She will do more than her fair share of kid-wrangling, no doubt, which will help me get the rest I need.
So I'm going to be stepping away from the blog for a few days (unless I just have some super-compelling thing to say that just can't wait), and do quite a bit of Sitting Around and, if I'm really lucky, Napping. I've had a pretty low-key day today, actually, and we have nothing on the calendar for tomorrow. YAY.
Reminds me of one of my favorite lines from the movie Office Space:
I did nothing, and it was everything I thought it could be.
So, see you in a little bit, and have a nice weekend!
