What I haven't mentioned in my last few posts is how sick I have been. It started November 20th with cold symptoms and 3 weeks later has turned into bronchitis, surprise surprise. Asthmatics rarely just have a cold. So, Christmas shopping, crafting and card preparing have all been on the back burner. If I recall I have spent this same period of time sick for several years now which really makes for an unenjoyable and stressful holiday season. I say this every year but next year I plan to start much earlier. At any rate I can handle me being sick but my baby, well, that is another thing entirely. Olivia spiked a temp last evening and has been horribly ill for the last 24 hours. It is clear now that she has an ear infection since I see pus draining from one ear! Ick! Here's my baby girl in her TV watching cocoon and shortly after. Normally I try to limit TV but when it's the only thing that helps the tears subside I'm a pushover.
