Home sick today...

So, I have rested and napped, and told myself not to do any cleaning or projects.  I really need to nip this cold in the bud (Don Knotts!). 

I tried to read this teeny-bopper book I got from the library yesterday that looked promising, but I was bored to tears after the first 12 pages.  One can only be so interested in troubled teens that sneak into houses to steal and drink creme de menthe for fun.

So, I updated my blogger.  Not sure if I like it yet.  Maybe it will grow on me.

I have also been pondering what it will be like having two kids.   I think about various things...like, the grocery store - I seem to have only recently mastered keeping Nathan happy for an hour there....but with two?  Where does Nathan sit?  If I put him in the cart..where do the groceries go?  No wonder my mother said she always went shopping late a night when we were little and Dad was home.  And daycare? I think about hauling two kids in there, feeling twice as sad about going some days, getting twice as many updates and twice the cost.

Don't get me wrong, I obvious am looking forward to all of the wonderful things to come, God willing! 

But that song from Fiddler keeps popping into my head at times...although, I think the words would be different today. 

Who, day and night, must scramble for a living,
Feed a wife and children, say his daily prayers?
And who has the right, as master of the house,
To have the final word at home?

The Papa, the Papa! Tradition.
The Papa, the Papa! Tradition.

Who must know the way to make a proper home,
A quiet home, a kosher home?
Who must raise the family and run the home,
So Papa's free to read the holy books?

The Mama, the Mama! Tradition!
The Mama, the Mama! Tradition!

On another note, my mom and I are starting a Novena together today, that will finish on the Easter Vigil, so we will have completed it Easter Morning.  Other than this cold, I was starting to feel better, not as tired and not as cranky since I felt queasy a lot.  I haven't been napping or sleeping as much,....much to the dismay of my poor sleep number bed!  I'll post pictures later.
