Archive for February, 2016
I can barely wait for the kids to get their acts in order with their piano lessons so they can move on to other instruments. I visualize a one-family band. It will be so fun to gather all the instruments and accessories such as a fluffer to make their music sound really amazing. Who knows, maybe they could even be the next Willis Family (LOVE that show on TLC, by the way!).
I honestly don’t remember having such a trying week in a long time. Nothing truly terrible has happened, but a bunch of inconvenient/bad/stressful things have attacked us all at once this week/month. In addition, I’m fighting a bladder infection or something (my doctor and I are still going back and forth about what it is, but I got some antibiotics tonight, so yay for small victories!) and I have no motivation to do anything.
I’m really glad that tomorrow is Friday. I’m hoping the antibiotics will have kicked in enough that I can get the grocery shopping done and be back on track to get back into our routine next week. Hopefully all we need is a weekend, meds, and routine. Oh, and lots of coffee of course!
I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of living in the country on a farm. Realistically, there is no way I could swing it. I am the furthest thing from an outdoorsy person. I am not who you would call to help you with your barn door equipment or your stable mucking! The longer we live in the city, though, the more I love the idea of having land and a place to send the kids out to run off all their energy!
Does anyone else feel like February is just the month that will not end? We breezed through the beginning of winter unscathed, but this month will be our undoing.
We have been on lockdown because we were exposed to whooping cough, and Kaylee now has a cough. She’s been treated with antibiotics, but they’re disgusting and she pukes every time I give them to her. Despite that, it seemed like she was getting better but today she definitely got worse. It is still NOTHING like our whooping cough incident a few years ago (she doesn’t even whoop or anything, it’s just a “normal” cough), but because of not wanting to infect anyone else, we’ve been trapped in the house for about a month.
Add in other health issues, car issues, and CABIN FEVER, and I just don’t feel like February will ever end. This week has definitely been the worst so far. It’s Wednesday and we haven’t even finished Monday’s school yet. We’ve had a TON of doctor appointments this week, but still. My motivation is GONE. 🙁
