What a week. WHAT A TOTALLY AWFUL TERRIBLE NO GOOD WEEK!!!! Ok. Not that bad. But, definitely not good. Right before I gave birth to my little Baby Bear I got an awful cold. Sneezing, coughing, sniffling...no sleep etc etc. It sucked. Now I've got that same awful cold again (thanks to my dad and/or sister ;) only this time I have a baby to take care of and because I'm nursing her there isn't much I can take. So. I'm miserable. My head feels like a balloon. But with snot in it. Yes I did go there. On Monday Mr. Bear stayed home with me to help out but unfortunately I was worse on Tuesday. And worse again today. That's three days of feeling awful. THREE!
All this sniffling makes me hate Utah and the disgusting inversion that I blame for getting me to this place of sickness. It has cleared away now but I'm still sick. Ugh.
Oh, and the baby is sick too. = Misery. Last night The Bear slept on my side of the bed, next to her sleeper, and I tried to get some rest in the nursery (also allowing me to cough without waking her). Great in theory but with my chronic sniffling that no amount of nose blowing could cure I slept little and not well. Still, I'm grateful he was willing to do that for me, especially with work the next day, and I hope he can handle another night or two while I get well again.
Today has been long. And tiring. Baby doesn't want to nap, not even in her swing. I don't have the energy or capacity to swaddle her and rock her to sleep like I normally would. What I'm saying is, I'm very very very tired. And I miss being healthy. And I miss the Spring time too.
