Back to normal, I think

This bronchitis thing has really been kicking my butt. Today was the first day I've felt anything near normal, a week and a half since it started coming on. I hope I never have to deal with this again.

Sass and Spyder are now sick as well. Spyder just has an annoying cold, but Sass woke up two nights ago complaining that her ear hurt, so off to the doctor we went. She has an ear infection, of course. The doctor's appointment took far too long (a total of 5 hours, including driving time), and she slept most of the day -- the drive there, in the waiting room, the drive back, and once we got home. Skeeter and I woke her after about four hours. And she went to bed only about 30 minutes later than usual. Thankfully, she's been feeling much better since then.

So today, in celebration of not feeling like zombies, Sass and I cleaned out the laundry room to make a playroom for her. Sass doesn't really have too many toys (I got rid of a lot of those just before Christmas), but several of them are big -- the doll stroller, the doll bed, the huge tub of Imaginext -- and take up more space in her room than I like. I was a bit more ambitious than I should have been, so we're not quite finished, but it's a very good start. She took several of her stuffed animals and had a tea party in there tonight, so she must be happy with the current results!

Tomorrow I'll have two big boxes to send off to the thrift store, most of it culled from the laundry room/pit of despair. It's that room where things get tossed and shifted and forgotten, so I'm glad to have a good use for it.

I'm so sorry you and the kiddos have been ill!! I've had bronchitis...not fun at all.

Hope you continue to feel better and get those babies well!
