So I've been in a bit of a fog. Eloise, Iris and I have been sick. Eloise has been the worst. She got sick two weeks ago, pretty much got over it, then got sick again. All of it is the sickness of the snot/coughing/stuffy head variety. Just annoying. Iris missed the first round of sickness two weeks ago, but she got it on the second round. A few nights ago I got less than four hours of sleep, total, from being up with a sick babe, so I've been foggy ever since. I think we might be on the tail end of it, though. Of course, Matt isn't sick. He never gets sick, it's so weird. He's the healthiest least healthy person I know! One thing that is good is that next week he is taking off from work, so I hope we'll all be happy and well to really enjoy our week together as a family.
Today the girls and I met Melissa and her two boys for some shopping. It was alot of fun! I forgot about our shopping days. I went a little overboard at Gymboree. It's always fun to tell Matt how much money I spent and wait to see what his reaction will be. Luckily I give it a really positive spin by first saying how much the clothes are needed ("they'll be naked without them!") and how good of a deal I got ("I swear everything was practically free!"). He always agrees that the clothes are adorable and most definitely needed. He's a good partner.
The big news in our lives is that I finally decided to drop out of our preschool co-op. I have been going back and forth about this decision for quite a while, but some recent jerkypants-ness by some other mamas on top of how much I have disliked it already put me right over the edge. I'm glad to be done. Our weeks will be open for so many more fun things-- I can start yoga again, hopefully see some friends more, attend some NINO meetings or maybe even some LLL meetings, we'll see! Life should be much, much better. I am only sad because Iris really enjoyed it. I don't really know what to say to her about it. I think I will just play up the other fun things we will do instead.
So, that's about it. Hopefully when I start feeling normal again I'll be back to my frantic posting pace.
