eat! craft! live!

Baking, crafting, mama-ing and taking photos of it all. When I remember.

316: lap time

I was home today with a wretched cold and after going back to bed at 9 I slept until 1. 1! I can’t believe I did that. I can’t a) remember the last time I took a sick day and b) remember the last time I took a 4 hour nap. Unheard of!

I wish I could say I felt better after that but I didn’t.

At least I was well rested when the kids came home and climbed all over me…

275: pizza, it’s what’s for dinner

After the day we had, I ordered pizza. It wasn’t bad, exactly, just long and tiring… E & H didn’t fall asleep until nearly 10 last night and then H was up at 5:30 this morning and proceeded to not nap the entire day. Oy. We were supposed to have a play date with some friends but the littlest had a fever so the oldest got dropped off at our house for a solo play date sans parent & sibling. No big deal, really, just not what we were expecting. E had dance class so we saw more friends, knitted and talked about how tired we were. Heh.

By the time we got home H was having a rough time with life and I scrapped our homemade dinner plans in favor of spending time with them and having pizza delivered. Win win.

215: tired

Man, summer is wearing me out. So much fun but oh my goodness. Exhausted.

We had a play date today with a friend who was really excited to have us over to her house a while back but markedly less excited to come to our house. It’s totally just her being 4 and not quite comfortable here (she has a hard time with new things) but I still felt bad.

162: oh, this day

What a day. Today was the second day E had to stay home from preschool. I decided to take the antibiotics I was wavering about. (My strep test came back negative but I’ve still got a sore throat and will be seeing a baby tomorrow, so.) I took H to the doctor and he’s got another ear infection. Then M went to the doctor and he’s got a sinus infection! So yay we’re all on antibiotics.

As a result of this craziness, I worked from home this morning, editing photos and working on a blog post for work. Since I was home, I made myself a delicious egg & cheese breakfast sandwich and blended coffee drink. SO GOOD. So today had that going for it at least.
