OK after that big ‘wallowing in self pity’ post last night I thought I had better update tonight before I run off to bed… yes at a reasonable hour… well if I am quick!
Things are better… well getting better. The girls are sicker but I am coping better and it will be worth it if they end up with chicken pox (yes I know I am an odd mother!).
I got up at 8:30 this morning, well after getting up at 4:48, 5:24, 6:05 and various other times between then and 8ish when izzy finally decided it was ok to join her sister in bed with us. I am bloody tired now after tossing and turning a fair bit last night trying to get to sleep, but that should mean I zonk out pretty easily as soon as I am done here.
I didn’t get to go outside for an hour.. the girls are just too sick, but I did go bring in the washing for 15 minutes while the sun set and the girls were in the bath (Si was finally home to bath them!).
Plus we got the girls beds today! Yipee! So after a super huge big rearranging effort in their room and then pulling out every toy they own and spreading it all over the living room, they are finally asleep, each in their own bed…. well I think they are I haven’t checked for a while! Izzy as usual had no issues in a big bed, even her new bed in a slightly different place. It is, however Zoes first time in a big bed on here own (without sharing with me, or her Dad or her sister or all of us) and she took a while to nod off. She wasn’t noisy, didn’t cry and never got out of bed, she just lay there with a HUGE grin on her face playing with the bed end and chatting… she just looked so damn pleased to be in her new bed!
So all is peaceful for now and I am off to bed. I know I promised previews of my new stuff but it is not up in the store at DSH yet and I hate to tease you all when you can’t actually buy it so I will hang out and hope Kazz gets a spare second in the next day or two!
Ok it is almost 11:30…. I better hurry or I will turn into a pumpkin!
