I’ve been dealing with a cold for going on 3 weeks now. It has come and gone, lingered, siked us into thinking it was over, then came back triple force in the night.
The toddler and the baby had it the worst. Oh, the all night coughing.
It hasn’t been horrible. No troubled breathing, only one day of fever. Just a runny nose and really rough cough. Oh, and exhaustion. This cold is really bringing on the tired.
You know what it feels like when you have a new baby and you’re up every 2 hours in the middle of the night feeding that new baby? You know how hazy those days can be when you have gone 2 weeks with only a few hours of sleep every night? The energy is gone. You can’t think straight. Can’t remember anything. Can’t organize thoughts in any kind of rational pattern.
I’m so there.
And I’m not even the one who’s sick.
Blessed we are that this is just a cold. A long running cold, but just a cold. And, it is quite obviously at it’s end. The kids’ energy is coming back and last night the nighttime coughing was at a minimum.
Tomorrow will be better. I know it. But today…
Triple espresso, please!
