A Good Day (so far)

As I start to write this, it is 10 to 11 in the morning.  Warren decided to have an early start to his day.  Robert was up with him for an hour, then I sat up with him for a bit.  He fell back asleep shortly after 5.  I went back to bed and the […]



More sickness

Laura slept until past 8 this morning.  I knew that something was up.  She only sleeps that late when she is sick.  She woke up with a fever of 101… and orange gunk draining out of her ear (and yes, gunk is a very technical term).  I knew immediately that she had an ear infection.  […]



Sick of sickness

I am so ready for our house to be healthy again.  Laura went to bed tonight with a slight fever.  I hope it isn’t anything major.  The poor girl should get a break soon.  I am starting to get over my cold.  Warren seems to be improving, but he still coughs and has a runny […]

Here I am once again journaling in the wee hours of the morning.  Warren woke up at 1:00 to eat.  I haven’t been able to fall back asleep since.  Laura getting sick has really hit me harder than I thought.  It is so scary having your baby be sick and not being able to do […]



Sick Baby Girl

!@#$%%^%$ Cats!

I am pissed/furious/angry, you name it, I feel it right now.  I feel like I don’t have anything sacred in this house.  I can’t have anything without the cats getting into it or breaking it.  This morning Peaches was up on the shelf that is above my dresser.  My tassel from high school graduation is […]
