I usually am a fan of getting an extra hour in a day, but not today. Today began at 6:00 am with a puking little girl. It wasn't even that, particularly, that told me she was really sick. It was her falling asleep on the couch at around 9:00 am that really sealed the deal. Between the puking and the napping she was doing some handstands on the couch, and has been fine since the nap, because Eloise only has two modes: ON and OFF.
Eloise threw the biggest hysterical sob-fest I have seen in a very long time when her dad and sister left to go visit friends without her. It was really sad. We thought maybe those guys should stay home, but I was staying, and we don't all need to be hermits because one kid is sick.
But now I'm tired. And my head hurts. And I have a laundry list of other physical complaints.
It's been a rough week, too, I won't lie. I hate complaining about this stuff in a public forum, but I've been trying out some new meds to help with some issues that are making me feel sick and tired all of the time. Of course, I feel more sick and tired taking the meds than I felt without them. I told my husband the other day that how I feel right now is like I'm in the first trimester of pregnancy (and NO I am definitely not pregnant!). So that kind of sucks. Back to the doctor with me. I can't eat. Can't sleep. Can't exercise. Can't write. I've been reading and sitting and whining a lot.
I thought I would raise all of our spirits a little bit today by bringing Iris to the store to pick out some things for the girls' Zhu Zhu Pets. Did you know there is a whole slew of parts you can buy to make them a little habitat. Pretty fun stuff.
I wrote a little while back that we were waiting on some really exciting news-- well, that news came and was exactly what we were hoping and praying for. I will write a bit more about it as soon as the pieces are more locked in to place, but for now, even amidst all of the feeling like crap that's going on around here, we're doing a big ol' happy dance. Life is still good. Even when it sucks, it's still really good.
