Needing more hours in the day...

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I need more hours in the day. Especially this time of the year! I guess I'll have to play bullet point catch up!

  • Emery had to be taken back to the doctor yesterday because she woke up from her nap with a fever, not eating, and not playing. Turns out that despite the fact we've been fighting this ear infection going on three weeks and have been on two different antibiotics, one ear is red and one is bulging and full of puss. My poor little Princess. On to a "super" antibiotic and a recheck in two weeks. I'm telling you, Chase all over again. This is exactly what landed him with his first set of tubes.
  • I am still fighting this chest cold. Cough, cough, cough. I would almost swear that I've broken a rib from all the coughing. Maybe I'll make it into the doctor one day... I doubt it.
  • So much to do at school, so ready to move back down to the lower grades. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. It's large, green, and is trimmed really pretty. 7 more days, I can do this.
  • Finally got lights on our house this weekend, thank you Daddy! Chase was so stressed out that both our neighbors had lights and we didn't. Now we're just working on getting the tree all up. Too bad that for every two ornaments Chase hung up this evening, Emery took one down.
  • Busy weekend ahead, two trips to Kingwood in two days. Already tired from that one. Need to get a pair of fringe pants and a birthday shirt made for my niece ASAP (as in yesterday).
  • Leave for Ohio on the 18th to visit with my friends that just lost their son to SIDS. Glad I get to go support them, hate leaving my babies. I know they'll be fine, but I've never been away from them like this.
  • Almost done Christmas shopping, woohoo! I think we have four more gifts to buy. Now we just need to wrap and wrap and wrap.
Could probably come up with about a million more bullets but 1) I'm sure no one is really interested and 2) I'm tired and could totally zonk out right now! Happy Hump Day, one of my favorite days of the week!

****I am grateful for
1) Hump Day
2) 7 more days, I can make it
3) the light at the end of the tunnel
4) lights are up and the tree is almost up
5) almost done with the Christmas shopping!

Wouldn't just 8 more hours in the day be perfect? 8 hours in which you don't need to sleep or work. I have been saying that exact same thing since my daughter was born. And I completely, totally feel you about needing that extra time right now. I hate having to decide between spending my time running around getting things done or taking it easy, because the former always wins out.

Here's to 7 more days!
