When I turned the TV on yesterday I couldn't believe my eyes. Christmas shows were already on! Even 3-day shopping specials at the major department stores. I thought to myself, they must be advertising for the day after Thanksgiving sales. No, it was for this weekend. HSN and QVC were also in the Christmas spirit.
My girls have watched Madeline's x-mas three times now, and have asked to put the Christmas tree up. Am I the only one who thinks this is complete craziness? We just went tricking treating last weekend!
I had planned to do several postings this weekend, but obviously that hasn't happened. The girls and I have had a long sickly weekend. We all have had the flu. Mine was mild compared to girls. I have been up and down all night, between drinks of water to Motrin and Tylenol to musical beds. This is one of those times being a single parent can be absolutely exhausting. There's no back-up, it's just you. The only humor about the whole thing is that the girls are scheduled Wednesday for their flu vaccines (and wont those vaccines be so helpful now).
I wanted you to know I haven't forgotten you. I'm sure my cousin Amy is reading this and saying "that's all you've got". My answer is "yes". She always jokes with me about how often I should post. She insists daily. I hope to have that kind time someday.
Have a good night.
And get your flu vaccines asap!
