...on the edge of exhaustion.
Yes, I admit it. on the very edge. exhausted. me!
We have the yuckies at our house right now. Yucky germs have invaded our house for about a week now!
We are stocked up w/ Tylenol, Dimetapp, Airborne, Emergen-C, Vicks, & an overused cool mist humidifier!
I have the littles sleeping w/ me every night.
One head on each shoulder~
snuffling, sneezing, coughing, eye-goopy germs.
tossing, turning, fussing, snoring~
while still in my arms.
Daytime is filled with~
incessant nose wiping of my five year old who has compulsive tendancies, which, btw, leads to flaming red raw cheeks!
incessant screeching from the one year old who let us all know when he needs *more drink, *to be held, *wants your toy, *is hungry, *wishes he could play outside in the downpouring rain!!
incessant sanitizing of a self-proclaimed OCD mom~ oh yes, lysol wipes, lysol spray, hand sanitizer ~ victimizing light-switches, door knobs, sinks, phone, computer keyboard, toys, and toilets!
Daddy is sick too, and TJ is sick also...
I am becoming a one-person-show running on minimal sleep...
and now I feel a lingering strike of a headache coming on...
Oh, yes, definitely a headache...
a vice-gripping, light-cringing headache...
and I want to crawl under a rock!
yet, I still wipe noses, I continue to hear the screeching,
and wonder if this is going to ever end???
because I am on the edge of exhaustion...
Then I wake up to this...
a daughter with a beautiful heart who felt the need to greet me with flowers and a card!
~Thank you Katie-girl~
a good dose of love is just the prescription your mama needed!
