sleepless

It's after midnight and I can't sleep. Between Swee'pea's feverish barking coughs and sweaty little body pushing me off the bed and overheating me and my racing mind (Sugar D has a second interview next week for the local job -- Hurrah!) and a crazy hard deadline that I couldn't get as much done on because of Swee'pea's illness and wondering if I'll have to stay home again tomorrow since Sugar D can't stay home tomorrow when he needs a day next week for the interview... ugh. It seems to me that the medicine isn't working on Swee'pea's fever. When I finally surrendered my four inches of bed and got up, you know what the feverish leach did? He moved back into the centre of the bed. Oh, the irony.

I'm so sorry Sin... We haven't had one of these nights in a long time, and I'm not looking forward to the mess of winter colds I'm sure are just around the corner.

I hope you guys have a better day and night!

Nights like that are nothing short of torture. Physical and mental torture. I vote you sneak a little of SP's medicine for yourself... I'm wishing you all a restful night, tonight.

I'm so sorry...sharing a bed with a feverish tot is no fun, I've been there.

Oh, girl...it sounds like I've missed a lot over here. Going to go back and check some past posts. In the meantime, I hope SP is feeling better and that everyone got some shuteye...eventually.
