The Dreaded Sick

Since Friday, I've been trying my very best to pretend to be among the living.  I've generally been acting pretty zombie like.  I haven't been sick thankfully, but Brianna got Croup.  It's been a fun one, I tell ya.  She would only sleep an hour, or an hour and a half, at a time.  She would wake up, cough like mad, and then cry and say "no way, no way" over and over.  It was heartbreaking.

Sean of course is still working 6 days a week, and he still helped out more than he should have, but it just wasn't enough sleep.

Last night, though, Brianna slept through the whole night!  It feels so awesome to get a full night of sleep.  I love it.  I love sleep.  Sleep is awesome.  Brianna is still sick, but getting better finally, thank the Gods.

Now that I'm (almost) back to normal, it's back to catching up on housework, which has been sorely lacking over the past 5 days.  Heh.  It shall be a full day (or two) of cleaning to get everything back to normal.

I also started some of my seeds growing.  We are finally going to container garden this year.  The soil is bought (ours is really bad where we live), we have all the containers.  We are just waiting for the weather to warm up.  Anyone else here just starting their gardening for the year?  What do you grow?


  1. I'm glad the little one is feeling better (croup is awful) and that you are now getting some sleep.

    We have lettuce and radishes to start soon, and my container blackberries have migrated themselves to other pots (I rather like when my plants take care of themselves), so we'll see how many berries we get this year. Other than those I have poppies, violets, snapdragons, miniature roses and stock in the flower pots.

  2. I am so excited this year our garden goes from a 12x18 space in our tiny yard to a 60x60 space on our new property :) I am starting tomatoes, peppers, broccoli and brussel sprouts inside this week and am very much looking forward to being able to plant this spring. Healing energies sent to your little one I hope you are all back normal soon :)
