Sick Day

I need a sick day for home. I have had a headcold since Sunday, and though it is getting better, I would love to have ONE day that is devoted to me and nobody else. I would like to play with Ryan when I want to, but not be responsible for meals and diaper changes, and oh yeah, the 3 am wake up call that he occasionally still has where he just wants mom or dad to come in and love on him. This slight bout of sickness has me truly worried about having another child. How am I going to make it when I am puking all day?!! And the SMELLS?!! What if Ryan smells to me and makes me puke like Bill did?

A Point to Ponder

I have been an avid reader since I was a child. My sisters even made up a song to taunt me, since I would rather read than go out and play "Wonder Woman" with them. That's not to say I never went out to play. But if I was engrossed in a book, going out to play did not sound to be a better choice of the two.

Now, what got me thinking about this is reading my friend Robyn's blog on all the books she has read. There is quite a plethora of books that I have never heard of, but will undoubtedly purchase when I run out. Currently, my 'library' is my friend Laurie's collection. She probably has 300+ books to choose from. If I feel like light reading, she has the book, fantasy, mystery, and my current favorite, Dean Koontz. Right now I am reading "A Death in Belmont" by Sebastian Junger. It is about the Boston Strangler that ran rampant in the 1960s. The author actually met him as a baby. His mother had hired him to renovate the house (the mother survived with only a minor 'wierd feeling' while he was there).

Now, as I was pregnant, everyone said I wouldn't have time for books like before, and most likely wouldn't have time at all. I didn't believe them, and I still don't. Of course I can't read all day like I would some days prior to Ryan. But I still must have a book at all times for bedtime, and naptimes. I can't seem to fathom the thought of never reading again. And Robyn has been a great inspiration. She now has 3 children, and still somehow finds the time to enjoy a good book. So here is to all those that share my love of reading. Just thought you'd like to know.

Ryan and Eeyore, Best Friends Forever

Ryan thoroughly enjoys his Eeoyre. I am surprised the ears still work and he is still intact. He came with a rattle to make him go, but Ryan figured out if he just yells at him, he gets the same result. Ryan has also started to fake laugh. It is the funniest thing. Hopefully I will get that on video as well.
