Things bloggers should never do

There are a couple of things bloggers should never do . . . and I did two of them.

First, I wrote about how we were "on the mend." What was I thinking? The boys are both healthy now, but I woke up in the wee hours of Monday morning and was throwing up. By the evening, I had a fever. I still don't know what it was.

Second, I mentioned that Bennett was sleeping 11 - 12 hour stretches at night. Again, what ON EARTH was I thinking? He was up every 2 - 3 hours over the last two nights. I think it was partly because I had only consumed saltine crackers and water all day and my milk supply was low. And, it was partly because I mentioned it on my blog.

So, at some point between throwing up and shivering in bed with chills, I made the (really difficult) decision yesterday to shut the shop down for a few days. Maybe a week. We'll see. I just needed some time to get well, get my boys well and get things in order around the house. And, there was a project I'm working on at work that took up my days and evenings, so I've been able to work on that without distraction. Also, I really needed to take a shower.

So, I won't mention that I'm feeling much better or that Bennett went to bed tonight pretty well. I'll just say that I'm hoping for the best for the next few days.

Yeah...I've gotten to the point that when people ask me a.) if the kids are healthy or b.) if K is sleeping through consistently I just say "Oh, we don't talk about those things." It never, ever fails to bite me u-know-where if I actually answer in a positive way.

I hope you're feeling better, and sleeping well, soon!
