Too Pooped to Party

Folks I am one tired momma. The past few days have kept me busy with taking care of my little patient and all the other busyness of life. Only got a few hours of sleep last night again but I am thankful I called hubby this morning and he encouraged me to take the little one in for peace of mind this long weekend. Dr. thinks it is virus she is fighting but gave me script just in case the fever gets worse over the weekend. I think she seems a little better this afternoon. She is sleeping next to me right now and I hope tonight if fever free.

I am thankful I had no where to go and could just focus on my little one with nothing pulling me away from home. I think this is one of the reasons I am so much more content these past few years. I just always wanted to be a housewife like my mom. I can remember thinking to myself that I wanted her life even when I was a kid. Things were slow and calm in my house growing up. Mom had time. She had such a slow and calm approach to holidays. She was very basic even though it always seemed special to me. We create a lot of our own stress don't we? I know I do. I pile on too many things at times. Always working on myself though.

I am just too pooped to be a proper blogger right now. I haven't even had the camera out. No time. I did sneak on etsy and order the "vintage pillowcases" below. I found the first three and then the match to the strawberry one. I am doing the bed eventually up in mix and match red, yellow and green pillow cases. I would love to go out and buy a new quilt but I am being patient. The one I have is fairly new but not the best for my vision of the bed but I will wait until I find a very good deal.




I am finally heading into Country General Store on Sat. to take my bestie to lunch for her birthday and a trip to the fall wonderfulness at CGS. Can't wait. Hubby and girls will have to hold down the fort for bit. Momma needs some time off.

You're a great Mom Elaine -- those little ones need us for such a short time, it is important to be there when possible. Have a great weekend and I look forward to hearing all about your trip to the General Store :)

I hope you enjoy your Saturday, Elaine. I can't believe it is time for fall open houses already, and I hope you enjoy the FGS with your bestie. We all need time off every once in a while....

Hope your little turns the corner soon. Glad you got a script just in case. Those long drawn at fevers are just not good. But being little they bounce back usually very quick.
Glad you can get out and about today. Good thing for Hubbys.

Elaine,

Your poor little girl, know exactly how she feels (and how you feel too). From what you described, I had the exact same virus. You are so lucky to be able to stay home and not worry about your job and a boss and all that stuff. Prayin for you sweet lady.

With love,

Debbe

Hope your little one is feeling better now. I worked from home, so that I could always be there for my kids while they were growing up. Love the vintage pillowcases you found!! Your bed is going to be wonderful!
