The Awful Truth

Some days are crappier than others and that pretty much accounts for all day today.

Husband had a cold and then Baby got a cold too. They have been coughing a good deal, have been grumpy a great deal and Baby topped it all with not sleeping. Mommy, who works as a teacher and as a voice-over pro, couldn’t enjoy her vacay from job one, neither was it easy to find the peace and -most important- quiet needed for job two.  In the meantime, cough got worse so we had to go see the doctor, which is fairly easy and free where I live. He was nice to Baby, who -to his bad luck-  though she’d get a shot and started to scream like a crazy person. In the end he gave us something to unblock Baby’s nose- which was fine though. I blamed it on the ‘free’ part.

Add to all this that three days ago we were still cuddling before the fireplace and today we have all doors and windows open. It drives mommy crazy when seasons do that.

Gardening was pretty relaxing- but not bio-dynamic which means my plants won’t get as nice. I always check with my calendar to see when is the right time to plant a new flower or herb into my garden. It works miracles to work with the moon! Well, this time I didn’t. I planted three new flowers and today was a no-no day, which really sucks.

And of course I fought with Husband. We entered this sad maze of blaming each other and arguing and didn’t realize we were being stupid untli three hours passed. Now we are  both sorry and exhausted.

We can’t get ourselves to go to bed.

That’s why I thought I ‘d write about it.

How are you doing?
