Me Time

Like many mothers in this world, I don't get alot of "me time". Yesterday was a perfect example. I got home around 4:45 only to set down with Cade to do homework. After that I started dinner. While that was going on I was unloading/loading the dishwasher, washing clothes, and organizing my plasitc containers cabinet. I also put the twins in the high chairs and gave them baby cookies to keep them from getting underfoot. You might ask, "where was Mickey during this time?" Well, he was happily sitting in his recliner playing a video game! I was so aggravated with him! Several times I asked him to get Cade to get his bath, check on him, etc. Finnally after I had dinner ready and Cade was still in the bathroom (for over 30 min.!) I asked him to stop playing! I mean, I had been home for almost 2 hours by then, and the whole time he was playing! He had no problem letting me handle everything last night.

Anyway, after I ate my dinner, I still had to feed the twins and get them bathed (another 45 min. gone!) Finnally at 8:00 I was able to lock myself in the bathroom and get a bath. I also enjoyed a Fuzzy Navel wine cooler in peace and quiet! (Hey, it may have not been a "real" fuzzy navel, but I'll take what I can get!) I'm not much of an alchoholic drinker, but there are times that I really need a drink to unwind, and last night was one of them!

It's been a really sick year!

Today is only February 10, and I have already been to the doctor's office like 8 times, not to mention my 5 day stay in the hospital! I'm so over being sick or having my kids sick! We started off the first weekend of the year sick and it seems like every week someone else is sick with something. I have missed so much work and been to the dr. so much that yesterday when I brought Cade to the dr., the nurse actually said they should just add me to the payroll! She predicted that I would be back before the week was out with Sierra. I was in there last week with Trace and we found out he had the flu! The bad part is that Sierra woke up with a fever this morning and I'm praying its just because she is cutting two more teeth! PLEASE GOD DON'T LET HER GET SICK WITH THE FLU TOO!

My poor Cade right now has strep throat and he just breaks my heart when he is this sick! Last night when I was helping him get bathed, he was having a really hard time. He looked up at me with sad, teary eyes and said "Mama, I just don't know what to do?". It was all I could do to not cry myself! I wished so much that I had a fairy wand to wave over his head and make him all better again! I hate to see my kids sick! Not only do you feel helpless when they look at you like why am I hurting, but it puts so much stress on me to be there for the sick one and take care of the well ones and keep them from getting sick too!

Anyway, I'm so looking forward to being able to go a whole week without someone in my house having a fever, runny nose, or cough!
