Twas the week before Christmas...

This week has been crawling by. Most weeks crawl by and then the weekends fly past, but this week has been incredibly long and tiring.

Part of the problem is that it's almost Christmas, but because of my "job" I really don't keep track of what day it is. Most days felt like the next day should be Christmas Eve. Nope, still not Christmas Eve.

And seriously, where is the snow? I really don't mind being able to drive like normal and not have to bundle everyone up to leave the house, but it's not very christmassy out there.

The other part of the problem, with this week I mean, is that Baby K has been sick. She's been sick on and off the past 3 weeks, but this week has been particularly bad. She's been feverish and quite clingy. She's been sleeping badly and nursing often.

We've been sticking close to home which makes Little J cranky and stir-crazy and by the time J gets home I want to throw both kids at him and leave. Unfortunately that's about the time of day I'm feeding Baby K or trying to get her to nap or dozing while she eats and Little J entertains himself.

What? He's 2. He can watch Rudolph for 20 minutes by himself.

Speaking of Rudolph, we've watched it I-don't-know-how-many-times this week. Little J is constantly saying that he 1) wants to be a dentist, and 2) that he's scared of the abominable snow monster. He hasn't been sleeping well lately either and I'm wondering if he's dreaming about drilling teeth and running away from big, furry creatures.

It's snowing now, late at night on December 22. It wouldn't be right to not have snow on Christmas. Baby K and Little J are sleeping with random cries thrown in and I'm heading to bed.

Is it Christmas Eve yet?
