Taking the Day Off

So, as I mentioned, yesterday was a really hard day to get through. I had a killer headache that wouldn't go away and the hubby had to work late. But, once he did come home I laid down for a quick hour of sleep and that did the job! Headache was pretty much gone - or at least dulled.

Then I needed to GET OUT!!! So I begged for a quick walk around the neighborhood with the family. By this point it was already 8pm, and at the end of our walk we had two sleeping kiddos - yay! I almost wanted to keep walking, but hubby reminded me that if we did and the kiddos woke up it would be a crying disaster. Okay...good point.

Last night was a bit better. Corbin had his last feeding at 10pm, then again at 1am, and 4am. But then, for some reason, he decided he didn't want to go back to sleep. Bah! I have no idea what's going on with him. I hope he's not getting sick or anything. Good thing is he's already on antibiotics, so if he does have a non-viral bug we more than likely have it covered. If it's viral, there's nothing much they can do anyway. He felt a little warm yesterday and today, but it was only 99. I'm going to check him again once he gets up from his nap. (Yes, he finally took another nap at 9:30am).

As for me, I think I'm going to take the day off. Granted, that doesn't mean what it used to mean, say when I was working and had no kids. Today we are going to watch lots of TV and DVDs, eat junk and not do anything productive - I think. Usually once I give myself permission to relax, that alone makes me feel better and I end up doing tons of stuff anyway.

Usually, Hayden is begging me to turn the TV on, but today when I do, he's ignoring it and "reading" one of his books. What the heck? I can't win. I bet if the TV was off he'd be banging it with his hand and begging for the Cars DVD.

Oh and the race track we made was a big hit!! We ended up doing it on the carpet and I think I'm going to keep it up for another day or two!

I like your strategy on the "day off." That's kind of what we're doing today, too.

Cool race track!!! No tripping is a big bonus.
