Taking a break from crazy

On Monday we list our house for sale. Right now life seems to be one big ball of crazy and more kid TV than I would like while I get everything ready and hope, hope, hope we can sell this house fast before the condition on our new home expires and we risk losing it. Add in colds ear aches and some days spent on the couch with a snuggly blanket (T2 mostly but a little for me too) and there's been very little blog-worthy activity going on. Hoping that changes soon : )

Today T2, her friend K and I made binoculars. I cut 2 paper towel centres in half and the girls coloured them, then we attached coloured cellophane to the end s with elastic bands and taped each pair of tubes together. The girls enjoyed exploring, examining things around the house through them.

Time to get back in the game

Finally I'm feeling a bit better - not 100% but getting there. Today I've been trying to get the house in some kind of order. It's a school day for both kids which means K is here to play with T2 this afternoon. Tomorrow there needs to be some paint or glue mess in the house - it's been too long....

pity party

Bronchitis is horrible, throw in some asthma and it's hideous and has knocked me on my butt. It's a good job G is home from work this week because I am seriously incapable of doing anything. My body feels like lead, my lungs feel like they have halved in capacity and don't even try to make me laugh because I will moan and do some kind of weird version of Lamaze he he he hee breathing to avoid the coughing fit that will happen if I surrender. I helped T2 get dressed this morning and felt like I'd ran a marathon (I have no idea what that feels like and to be honest - I'm not sure I ever want to find out!) Hoping to be back as CEO of the household once more in a few days!

My turn.... feel like poop. My lungs are mad at me - they burn when I breathe and make squeaky sounds. It's just a delight to have asthma aggravated by cold and flu season. Looks like this week is a write off as far as crafts and activities.............. : (

Not a whole lot of energy over here. T1 seems OK but T2 is still under the weather, G's battling man-flu and I have zero energy due to an over-active brain causing insomnia. I seriously did not need to wake at 4 and spend the rest of my slumber time planning furniture placement in the house I hope we are buying. I couldn't locate the off switch and therefore my day started somewhat earlier than planned!

Crazy day house hunting and trying to keep T2 happy as she's full of cold and feeling miserable.
