i'm just now coming around to the fact that today is friday.
mostly because i JUST happened to mouse over the time at the bottom of my computer screen and the date popped up which clearly reads friday.
otherwise i'm not sure i would have known that.
it has been such a long and confusing week (and a half) i feel like i have lived 3 lifetimes since my last post.
like i said last week, we had multiple thanksgivings and a wedding to attend over the weekend and i am glad to report that most of it went off without a hitch (except for the wedding part, because obviously there would likely be a hitching there). i spent most of thanksgiving in a sinus/cold-induced stupor which could only be cured by my mother bringing me multiple mugs of her secret recipe hot tea.
*note* secret recipe hot tea is code for tea with honey AND sugar in it and can only be mixed in a way that my mother knows how.
isn't it funny that some things, no matter how hard you try, only taste good if your mommy makes them? i have tried for several years to make hot tea, toast with peanut butter and jelly, and bologna sandwiches with lay's chips on them, the same way that my mommy does, and let me just confirm for you that all trials have ended in failure.
i only hope that teagan never learns how to make a hot dog or else i will have no special "mom food" of my own.
good news though, my cold is gone, but guess what?
good news again!
teagan has it.
tuesday morning she woke up with a croupy cough that we couldn't cure to save our lives so off to the pediatrician we went.
long story short, we came home with a corticosteriod, allergy medicine, and a cough syrup.
the croup is gone, but somehow we acquired this brand new dry, hacking cough that won't stop. the poor dearie has barely spoken all day just because she never gets the chance to talk before a cough comes out.
we've got 4 humidifiers running...she's been taking all of her medications...drinking lots of fluids...we've burned right through 2 cans of vicks...and i even made a little tent for her with the vicks vaporizer located inside for max results.
right now she is supposed to be napping but given all the noise coming from the monitor, i'd say i have about 5 more minutes until she wakes up cranky because she couldn't sleep very good.
the real good news is that she is being a real trooper about it.
i think the only thing that has made these past few days bearable for her is that there has pretty much been a stream of christmas activities coming in from all directions.
tree, lights, decorations, cookies, christmas movies, an elf on the shelf, and a brand-new christmas edition of sofia the first.
if you are 3, it really doesn't get much better than that.
and maybe also if you happen to be 29.
hopefully we can kick this cough really soon because
have a great weekend!
