I'm siiiiiiick!

Yuck, I hate colds or sinus problems or whatever this is that I have. I started feeling under the weather on Sunday night. Now it's Thursday, and I still feel rotten. I am starting to perk up a little bit this afternoon. Wow, it's hard to rest and chase a baby around all day. This is the first I've been sick since Zachariah was born. Guess I've been lucky so far. He has been pretty good for me, though. Today Matt is sick too. He came home after being at work for an hour. Poor guy. He has kept holed up in our bedroom since 9:00 this morning (it's now about 4:00PM). Must be nice to sleep all day and lounge on the bed watching TV while someone else is there to worry about the baby. Too bad I haven't been able to do that for the last 4 days that I've been sick. Oh well, I guess all in all I just prove to myself that I can do all this "mothering" stuff. It really isn't so bad. We just suck it up and go on with our days.

This is all on top of the big party that we have coming up on Saturday. Yes, Saturday, March 3 is the day that my son turns one year old! A year ago I was having a new baby and just entering this world of motherhood. So, I'm trying to get my house completely spic and span for all the guests we have coming over. Luckily I have the world's greatest sister, and she's coming over tomorrow afternoon to help me out. I figure it might help to have someone else there to help wrangle the kiddo, so I can finish cleaning, baking the cake, decorating the cake, and all that other fun stuff I have yet to do. I still have to go out tomorrow morning to get cake supplies and other party supplies. I'm SO glad that I decided just to have a simple cake and ice cream party. There is still a lot to do.

I plan to write a "birth story" and share it on here sometime. I figured the first birthday was an appropriate time to do that. And let me just say...I'm so ready for another baby. That's for another post/another time though. I just wrote this small post, because I felt neglectful of my blog these last few days. Now I'm back to cleaning.

1) Dayquil. The best.

2) It is so, so annoying that fathers get to take days off of work and spend the whole day lolling around, but that it never happens that way for mothers. Whenever Paul threatens to stay home sick from work with the same thing I've got, I say, "I think you'll get more rest at work."

3) I want to hear all about the wanting-another-baby thing, and also I'm looking forward to the birth story.

Yay! Birth story! I cannot get enough. I have rechecked out books from the library to read the stories again, even the horror stories. I don't know what is wrong with me! I have an obsession with birth which will only be cured by perhaps becoming a doula or a midwife or something. Or having so many kids that I feel like I'll scream if I see another baby. But I don't see that happening!

P.S. So does Matt know you want another baby? :)

DH - Yes, actually, Matt does know that I'm ready for another one. Well, I was ready for another when I found out I was pregnant for the first one. I promise I'll tell the story soon about what he said about another. And that has changed in the last year or so, but I think all will be well.
