The 12 Days of My Life

OK--I don't really have all 12 here, but to the tune of "The 12 Days of Christmas", these verses are running in my head today. We're getting our roof & siding redone this week and Rebekah calls the contractors 'hammer guys' because they hammer.

Five hammer guys.
Four thirty wake up call for
Three nights of vomit with
Two times last night
And one Nosebleed to start my day.

After three nights of throw-up, we took Rebekah in and found out it's most likely allergies. Nothing we can do. Just drainage coming up (lucky me and my laundry). Thankfully the vinegar does take the smell out during the first wash. Unfortunately, she started at 4:30am and again at 5:30am. She wouldn't go back to bed so I had the opportunity to be up from 4:30 on. I got Andrew out the door for school at 7:10, crawled in bed and told Sean if Rebekah called, he was now on duty. My head hit the pillow and she called for me. He ignored her and she ended up falling asleep on the couch. We didn't wake up until 8:30 when the Hammer Guys showed up to work.

With ma in her bathrobe and Rebekah in her jammies, we'd just settled down for a long fall nap... OK, I apparently can't think outside of books and songs today. What an interesting view you have into my wacky head. :-)

Turned on the humidifier to stop the boys from having more nosebleeds (two this week).

Going to bed now. Hoping to sleep in tomorrow. My goal is really 8am, but even 6 would be a major improvement this week.

{{{HUGS}}} on the crappy week. Can't say as I'd trade you my week, though -- at least I'm RESTING!
