Rejoining the Land of the Living

First of all, I just wanted to say thank you to all of you guys out there who read my blog, (I had no idea that I have more that two or three readers :)) your get well wishes both posted here and emailed to me privately were wonderful!

But today I decided to get up and out. I have had enough of being sick. So, Peanut and I went to the county Home and Garden show with my parents-in-law. It's nothing grand, mostly like a mini county fair. But the real attraction is the Rubbermaid warehouse sale. We bought so many totes and hampers and things, that we filled the bed of the truck! Maybe they will inspire me to get started on my spring cleaning and organizing, but for now, they are sitting in a big heap on my livingroom floor, amid the piles of toys, books, and shoes. Today's little excursion tired me out enough that I just let Peanut run wild all afternoon and decided to deal with the consequences later. Now that it is later, I've decided that my plan is a bust. What was I thinking?!

Oh, and my husband just called to tell me that he is getting paid overtime to sit and do nothing at work today. He is waiting for someone to finish the first part of whatever he is doing, so he is just sitting 20 feet in the air and snoozing. And when it is actually time to work, all he will be doing is pushing a button back and forth. He tells me this while I am standing in my shambles of a livingroom, trying to comfort a grouchy 17 month old who refused to take a nap today, and coughing my head off.

Why exactly did I quit my paid job with vacations, sick days, and weekends?
