so apparently i am a toddler!
after picking up the weird little cold that led to pink eye (apparently that is a thing at the moment),
i relapsed a bit on sunday and got a great big raging ear infection.
anyhoo, antiobotics and some bloodwork and i am feeling a lot better.
and bonus, i can her out of my right ear again.
i have a trick eardrum that hasn't acted up in years.
but weirdly, it led to a great week and a half of the kids playing nicely upstairs while i rested.
and bonus, i was able to finish some last minute presents on my computer.
now all i have to do is head up to welcome one of my baby sisters home from her mission,
and then see my mom before heading into the city to catch up with family for the holidays.
it's going to make for a long, crazy weekend -
but if i am feeling good,
the time away with family will be relished.
and now i have to go back to tackling all the things that pile up when mom gets sick.
ie: a mountain of laundry to fold (thanks nick for keeping up on getting it washed),
putting away a mountain of stacked dishes (again, thanks to the hubby for washing),
and all the random de-cluttering of clutter that no one sees but me.
(such as the 20 pairs of shoes at the front door that everyone keeps kicking aside)
i hope everyone is feeling well and getting things done,
and when they aren't getting things done -
i hope you all are feeling the peace of this season,
the quiet moments in front of the tree, a family night of reading and talking,
singing and listening to beautiful music, acts of service...and on and on and on...
and happy december birthdays to molly and tj.
it's a busy month - but birthdays are awesome.
i hope you each had lots of cake and ice cream!
