The Flu Bug Bites Again

Ashton slept till 10:30 this morning. That NEVER happens! Actually, she climbed up in my bed at 7:30 a.m. and I thought she was up for the day. I cozied her up next to me to snuggle and steal a few more minutes from the clock. After a few seconds, she was sound asleep. And on FIRE! Her body was burning up. And before you get all whiny on me about still being in bed at 7:30, I should have prefaced that with the fact that I was up till 2 putting the finishing touches on a camp brochure for our youth director, which is part of my new job. I'm sure they didn't intend for me to work in the wee hours of the morning, but hey, it works for me!!! I'm a total night owl. Oh and it's Spring Break. On school days, we're usually up by 7. But back to Ashton. When she got up at 10:30, I gave her some Motrin. She didn't want to eat all day, just wanted to be held. I went to the bathroom with her on my hip. I walked the dog with her on my hip. I made up all the beds and loaded the dishwasher with her on my hip. I even vacuumed with her on my hip. You didn't think I would give myself a day off from cleaning floors just because I have a sick baby did you? You silly internets! So since I burned double calories today, you know doing all my chores while toting around a 28 lb weight, I think I'm totally entitled to a big honkin chocolate something tonight. Cary is in a meeting tonight, but I called him anyways. He answered whispering, "I'll call you back" and I replied in my own whisper, "No need, just bring me some chocolate. BIG chocolate." Heeheee. I'm sending him telepathic brain waves right this second....BRING REESES PEANUT BUTTER CUPS or something with hot fudge will do! But back to the flu. I still feel rather fortunate that it's just been fever and sleepiness in this house, and not the other less desirable symptoms that usually come with the flu like potty issues and congestion. In fact, fever and tiredness sounds great to me...an excuse to not get out of bed for a whole day??? Really??? I'll take it!

I hope Ashton feels better soon.
I've been going non-stop these days and don't see rest in my near future. We had 4 showings yesterday. 3 of those were when we were at the doctor.

I have tagged you. See my blog for info and if you don't want to participate, I understand!
