Another Day in the Life

I'm sick with some kind of sinus, sore throat grossness. All I want to do is curl up under the covers and sleep. So what did I do today instead? Well, Wiggle is off from school today and tomorrow for parent teacher conferences. Buster doesn't normally go today anyway, but he will be off tomorrow. Luckily, the babysitter (whom I'll call Poppy because she is Mary-Poppins-awesome with the kids) was coming today for four hours this morning. But that also meant there was a half hour cleaning scramble before she arrived this morning. I swear I'm going to vacuum the living room rug one day, and there will just be bare floor when I'm done.

After she arrived, C and I went off to Wiggle's parent-teacher conference. Then I dropped C off at work, came home and went through a bunch of piled-up paperwork and kids schoolwork from this semester. I made vet appointments for the animals and gathered some paperwork for some outstanding FSA transactions. Then I took down the Halloween decorations and packed them away.
The boys came home from an outing to the park with Poppy with Buster sleeping and Wiggle bouncing around requesting lunch (and more importantly a piece of Halloween candy for afterward).

I did manage to sleep for 30-45 minutes when C came home from work to get the car to go to a meeting. Then I made pumpkin bread, gave Buster something to eat after his nap, put together various veggies and chicken to bake for dinner, cleaned up the kitchen, and put a load of laundry in.

Now I'm snuggled under a blanket on the couch perusing pinterest for cheap and easy decorations for the baby shower for four moms-to-be in my MSW program I am helping to host on Friday. C has the boys at tae kwon do.

Not a super busy day, and I should have been doing school work, but the fuzziness of my brain today precluded any major intellectual activity.

They say that youth is wasted on the young, but I think it's time that's wasted on them. I don't miss my youth as much as I miss lazy Sunday mornings and the stretch of time between the end of the work day and when you go to sleep containing full activities rather than just tiny activities drawn out to take long periods of time.

Here's hoping my Dayquil/Nyquil round the clock dosing leaves me feeling better tomorrow.
