In Which I Should Be Doing Something Else

There's lots to do today: library, grocery store, school work, laundry. Yes, I could go on.

But it's cold and windy and my nose is drip, drip, dripping so much that all I want to do is curl up on the couch under my favorite blanket and take a nap.

Oh, wait, I already did that. Remember that old adage, "Sleep when the baby sleeps?" It isn't just for mothers of newborns.

So I am now awake, with children that need mothered, and my nose is still dripping and my head hurts and I feel a bit more rested but still very cold, and...all those things at the top of the page still need to be done.

Well, except the library one. It may help you understand our family's priorities if you realize that we may be eating eggs for supper tonight and goodness knows what for breakfast and lunch tomorrow, but we are well stocked with books.

Maybe we'll all curl up under blankets and read. Except for Sweet Pea, of course. She'll be busy dismantling the entire house. Oh, wait again, that has already happened today. In cirumstances like these, one does well to emulate Scarlett O'Hara. Tomorrow really is another day. Therefore today can be spent reading and drinking cocoa, if we can just find a way to contain that 18 month old bundle of perpetual motion we call our youngest daughter.

That's what I think about today too! :) I'm just sooo tired. I went to bed and when my hubby called to tell he was on his way home (at 3:30 pm) I thought I'd slept all day. :D I got realy scared for a minute, before I remembered I'd only been there about 1/2 hour. :D Now I hungry. I think I'm turning into a baby myself. It seems all I do is eat, sleep, and cry!!!!! LOL!!!!! :D Hope you nose get better soon! :hugs: Love, Brittany
