So apparently the universe must think it's pretty darn funny. I stayed home on Friday night to keep the girls from getting sick, but now both of my children have a cold anyways. Wahhh!!!! I am so po'd. You know what really, really makes me mad, as well? The fact that both of my girls have been, and still are, breastfed, and this is the third time Iris has had a cold in just under eight weeks and the second time Eloise has. So much for the immunity boosting properties of breastmilk. I especially hate the mamas who brag how their BF'd children never get sick (oh, she's only had one cold in three years!) because it makes me want to strangle them. I thought Iris was getting much healthier, as she has only had probably three colds in the entire previous year, but you know, there's a baby in the house to infect now, so no time like the present to get sick at every opportunity. Grrrrr.
Other than Iris being a germy-pants, we've had a good weekend. I got to sleep in two days in a row, woo-hoo! I also went shopping on Saturday afternoon and bought these shoes. I really like them because they are super comfy but still look a little dressy. When I lose some weight I can buy new clothes to wear with them!
It's going to be another busy week. Thursday is my birthday! Woo Hoo! I hate to sound selfish, but my birthday is my favorite holiday. Mostly I just love October and I love that birthdays are fun to celebrate, but aren't over-the-top, like Christmas or Easter. I will also have a suprise to unveil to everyone on Friday morning. You'll have to stay tuned to find out what it is!
I am hoping to redeem a terrible Friday night this past week with an amazing one this week-- Matt's work has given him two tickets to sit in a suite at the Bob Dylan concert on Friday night. Unfortunately, I already exhausted 99% of my options for finding a babysitter. Hey, there's got to be a reader of my blog who wants to watch my sick daughters, come on, you know you want to! It's for Bob-freakin-Dylan, for cryin' out loud!
