A House Full of Sickies
We are all sick here at the Goodman home. I guess that is not terribly surprising considering how messed up our schedules have been. It is really hard to stick with bedtimes when we are all in one room. Emma did not want to sleep unless everyone else was sleeping- and to be honest, I can't really blame her. Anyway, lack of sleep coupled with the drastic changes in the barometric pressure (spring might actually be here now!) has left us all with varying degrees of head colds. Ross is a little stuffy, and Sara has a nice little snore going on along with a constant dribble from her cute little nose. Unfortunately, Emma and I got the worst of it. The poor girl is just miserable (although she was a lot more active today than she has been for the last few days, so maybe she is on the down-slope now). Her nose is constantly running, and is now all red and chapped from having it wiped by her 'Mean Mommy!' (she actually yelled that at me today- it would have hurt my feelings if she hadn't been so cute and pathetic at the time). She has had a hard time breathing and just seems a little out of it. I have been battling some migrains (the bane of my existence!) and have a scratchy throat, runny nose, and some major sinus congestion. Somehow, even with all of us being at less than 100%, the house is really starting to come together. The boxes are all unpacked and we are almost done figuring out where to put it all. We still need to hang pictures and purchase a few items of furniture, and I have a monster mountain of laundry to do (we had to get a different connection for our dryer, so I wasn't able to start until today) but hopefully it will all be done by this weekend for when my grandparents maybe/hopefully come out to see us. Unless someone in my family decides to make the dreaded half hour drive out here before then, they will most likely be our very first guests! I will put up some pictures once I am happy with it all.
