My spirit is grey

I haven’t really been blogging much this week, just like last week. I have been sleeping in. I truly do hate sleeping in. I never feel any more rested, if anything I am grumpier. I am going to try my best ot not let sleeping in happen next week.
But this has been a tough week.
My babies are sick.
They have croup.
I thought croup was a very serious thing, it sounds serious, but it isn’t as frightening as it sounds. It can become quite bad if fevers start to spike and breathing becomes laboured, so we have to keep a very close eye on them. Right now they just have a deep (seems to be painful) cough, a sore throat and lots of mucous.
Mucus is awful when you are a wee gaper. You have not developed the skills of blowing your nose or spitting out mucous you have coughed up, so you just end up swallowing it.  When they swallow it the choke a little. It is awful (and sometimes scary) to hear.
My poor wee things.
And on top of it all, I am sick now too. I don’t have croup (I don’t think adults can get croup?! but I have a nasty cold)
Bah!
I am slowly realized that babies/kids are sponges for germs. This is our first true winter with kids and I have been sick more this winter then any other.
This morning I feel like a bag of crap.
And it is Saturday, which mean I have to work in the city all day today. I am not really looking forward to that. But I will say, working at the spa all day is hands down easier then working with my babies. (though I still love staying with my girls better then working anywhere else πŸ™‚

With the way I am feeling today, I am glad I woke up to blog, writing always makes me feel a little better but I don’t have anything enlightening or interesting to talk about this morning.
I am slightly grumpy and my throat hurts a ton. So basically, I am being a major whiner. 

I am also feeling bummed because I missed one on my best girlfriend’s birthday dinners last night.
I am glad I stayed home to with my little ladies, if I left them I would have been worried all night. Also I am glad I stayed home for me, as I felt crappy and went to bed at 8:30 pm. But I am sad I missed it. I was looking forward to celebrating her 26th birthday with her and seeing my friends. I hope they all had a good time πŸ™‚
Oh, the life of a mom!
I might as well get used to it, right? I don’t always get what I want or get to do what I want anymore. I have two little ones who come first.

Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I better change my spirit a bit today. If the quote speaks the truth, I feel I am looking a little grey.

I wish you a colorful day!

Much love,
Jessica
