and I spent a quiet day at home. I have so much to get done in the
next seven days, but I
woke up feeling the brunt of Ashlyn's cold....sore throat, heavy head,
runny nose, cough, chills, a dull fever, and feeling achey all over.
Totally sucks! *UGH!* =(
spent most of the day watching Ashlyn from the couch. I felt miserable....wishing
someone could take care of me or just lend me a hand by watching Ashlyn
so I could rest and get over this thing. But I have no one. I'm then
consumed with guilt that Ashlyn, being as young as she is, had to
spend most of the day playing with her toys alone. *sigh*
in the afternoon, I was caught off guard by a ring of the doorbell.
I looked at the time (it was much too late for UPS to come by), and
I wasn't expecting anybody.
Tonight felt extra long and lonesome since Aric had a Department dinner to attend after work. He finally got home around 9pm. I didn't tell him how horrible I felt since the poor guy went through the same thing a couple of days ago...with work AND school, he didn't once complain. Nevertheless, he noticed and gave me a long soothing hug and a break from the baby the rest of the night.
I'm going to keep this journal short. I need sleep. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.
