Thursday Night Fever

Mika is at a sleep study tonight. I’m home alone with the kids. The kids fell asleep at about 8pm.

Here is the sequence of events as they happened.

8:34pm. V wakes up.

9:51pm. V wakes up again. I try to nurse her back to sleep but fail.

10:30pm. I bring her downstairs and notice she’s hot and feverish. Tried using the thermometer we have but reading seems off. Wiped her down with vinegar water to help bring her temp down. Decided to keep her downstairs with me while I did some more work. She talked up a storm and was so animated she woke Zander up.

11:00 pm. V tells me that Z is awake. I don’t believe her so I look outside the office door. He is standing in front of the tv room entrance clutching his teddy, staring with a confused look at V.

I come out and walk towards him. He starts whimpering. He woke up by himself. No mommy. No V. No daddy. What’s going on? He asks where daddy is and I tell him. At a sleep study. Let’s go back to bed everyone, I tell both kids as we walk up the stairs.

11:10pm. I try again, for the 3rd time to get v to sleep. She’s art he’d to me the whole time and is still not deeply asleep.

12:45am. I feel cold feet on my legs. Her body is hot, and so is her forehead. I take her to the bathroom to give her medicine for her fever. I take out my contact lens. Just so I can got to sleep too. She’s wired and unable to fall asleep. Poor her.

Poor me. I’m exhausted. I might have to take the day off tomorrow if she still has a fever.

1:28am. Still awake. V has been nursing since 11pm. She’s still unable to fall asleep. Z is stirring from her crying.

At least she’s trying to sleep. I hope I can put her down soon. My backs killing me. I’ve had to prop myself up so I could support my back and change positions.

1:50am. I think vs finally asleep She’s off me and I’m going to try and get some rest now.

Snowy Day

Yesterday has to have been my worst day this winter so far. Why? Here are some reasons…

6. I had no voice all day but the kids were still pretty inconsiderate.
5. My head was all stuffed because of this cough and cold that I couldn’t think straight at all.
4. I still have not submitted my grade 9 report card files.
3. I was stressed out about activity day being the day after and feeling completely unprepared.
2. I was stressed out about not being able to pick up Z because his school decided to close due to the weather.
1. I panicked and searched the snow for about 15 minutes looking for my dropped car keys.

That’s about it. Rough day. And I had a headache all day too.
