i need a new day......... :)

the last 2 days have been very "long" days for me...on Sunday, H was up before dawn and wouldn't go back to sleep...and today, Monday, K was up at 4 *ugh* calling for me...
i sat and rocked (and fell asleep at some points) in her room for about 2 hours...tip-toed out thinking she was asleep only to find her calling for me 2 minutes after i let out a huge sigh of contentment as i got comfie in my bed again... i brought her to my bed *out of sheer need of sleep* and she talked my ear off for about 2 hours... ry was up for work by then and i had him feel her head...i thought she felt warm but the thermometer read 97.something at 4... i gave her tylenol anyway...she was burning up.... i finally had to put her back in her bed after several warnings...lay down and go to sleep or else... she fell asleep at some point, but i got her up around 9 b/c i didn't want her sleeping the day away... sleeping is hard enough around here without having that as an interruption....
so today was spent with her fever, sneezing, runny nose...pale, bags under her eyes...seriously... now, call me a crazy person, but this coincides with a flu "mist" vaccine and a trip to the doctor for H's 6 month check up... she always seems to contract something or other when we're there... *sigh*
she barely ate dinner...running a temp of 100.3 with tyenol in her...she didn't want to go to sleep tonight...i put her down early (for her) in hopes she'd rest well...she cried and wimpered because she wants to sleep in my bed so badly, but it's rough to do that with her because then she wants to do that every night...even when she's feeling better... breaks my heart... :(
she's sitting up right now...it's 1 AM...and she's been doing this off and on for hours...my poor sweet girl :(

i wonder if the discussion Ry and i had yesterday about the aftershocks from the earthquake we had a week ago has her freaked out a little but she doesn't know how to "say" that outright....and it's coming out in her sleep patterns? yah, we had 4 aftershocks on Sunday...............
i think we'll refer to the earthquake and aftershocks in code from now on... "hey, did you see the pickle jar anywhere?"

my computer HAD a virus...it doesn't any more because i had to shell out $245 (which is a year's worth of protection...) for the nice foreign man to remove it via remote access...took over my computer and everything...so cool... only took 2 hours during our prime dinner hours..... :-\
yah, my computer had 152 viruses on it........
"we think a lot of viruses is 5 to 7," he said....
yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh............
had to reinstall the operating system again (translation: i lost all the programs i had installed and now have to reinstall them...also backed up my computer, too...so all of that (pictures, music, files, etc.) had to get moved back into the "fresh" computer).........
and forget the fact that i have TWO virus softwares...norton and spyware doctor...they weren't working, obviously....
gonna hafta try to get my money back from those companies.... NOT happy with them... :-\

our car got inspected today...failed b/c it needed new tires... cha-ching again...
nice, new tires... :) passed inspection... goodbye even more money...........

:)
but............. :)
i love my husband and girls...and am blessed to have needs and wants met in abundance... and we're safe... and have wonderful family...
and we have shelter...
:)
and tomorrow, the sky will be a pretty blue again... :)
here's to a new day................................................................................................ :)

Yep...I agree. You need a new day. I hope today is better. "Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22-23
