Sick Of It

For whatever reason, we’re sick
again – though this time at least it’s just a common

Maddie started sniffling Monday, with full-blown sneezes and drips
by night time. Cora seemed to be escaping it, though I began to
feel rundown Tuesday evening. Then came Tuesday night, with Cora up
all night long. And I mean that almost literally.

She’d fall asleep, sleep for ten minutes, then wake up
screaming and crying “No, no, no!” or “Stop
it!”. I’d rock her and sing to her, she’d fall
asleep, and then we’d start the cycle all over again. In
desperation, I brought her in with me at 3 a.m., but it took her
another three hours to sink into a deep sleep.

I thought she’d be running a high fever and feeling awful on
Wednesday, but she appeared to have just the typical cold –
sneezes, drips, sniffles, and a bit of droopiness. I felt it as
well, though I’m sure the sleepless night didn’t help.

I’m hoping this will be a short one, though Maddie’s
the forerunner and she’s showing no signs of easing up yet.
And I’m reminding myself that my house isn’t actually

It just feels that way sometimes.

Oh well – we had a great week last week, and I’ll be
grateful for that and take what I can get.
