I was so looking forward to this time off. Last week I started getting this cough and it was just a cough for a few days. Luckily it didn't keep me up at night. Saturday I woke up with a headache and didn't feel as good. Malea was going out of town with my MIL - so I had to get up early anyway. Keagan also woke up with his ear hurting. Turns out he had ruptured his ear drum :( I was feeling ok after some medicine and Keagan was dealing - just wasn't his energetic self most of the day. That actually helped because I was working on the house and he could just lay on his bean bag that we brought and was fine with that. I would have been able to get so much more done if both of us would have felt better. I also learned my lesson about wearing flip flops- bad idea when you are doing demo work (I had not planned on initially doing that).
Sunday I woke up feeling much worse - but my cough was better. Keagan was so much better yesterday as well - but still had his ears draining. Last night I was just exhausted - regretting that I picked Monday as the day I had to work.
I feel much better today - less of a headache - just a runny nose and a little tired. The last few days put me all out of sorts though. I feel like I'm so behind on everything!
Overall the kids had a good Easter. Keagan was overly excited about his new Ninja Turtle suitcase and Malea has spent most of her itunes money so far. We had fun at my Mom's finding Easter eggs. Best of all - we got to see Nolan (and Selena and Scott, of course ;)) I didn't get to hold him since his immune system isn't great as is and although I know what I have is allergies - I wanted to be safe.
Malea has been doing better. She talked a lot to Dave's oldest brother on her little trip on Saturday. I was very glad to hear that she was talking to someone. It was nice for him to realize how great of a kid she is. I was saddened to hear that she's been called these horrible names at school. She says they don't bother her - but they really bother me :( She doesn't want me to do anything about it though. She says - it is just gossip Mom. Kids are so mean :( Like she doesn't have enough to deal with already......
Still trying to figure out something fun to do at the end of this week. I need to plan something or I'll just work on the house all week and the kids want to go do something....I have to feel better first!
