Still alive

Just sick, again. Another cold, or the same cold. And migraines. I'm in one of my migraine periods where I have weeks of trying to head them off. Coming up on four or five months of colds, 'flu, stomach bugs, etc. Don't think I've had more than a couple of weeks without illness. Bit over crawling exhausted through my days and getting further and further behind on everything.

On the bright side, am keeping up with the child-raising duties. Not a lot of energy to do extra stuff, but getting the basics done is still better than some (grumbles about 5 year old kids going to school who have literally never opened a book).

Sharon and I are now referring to Swancon as my break. Suspect I'll spend a chunk of the con in my room, catching up on rest. But at least I have the option, and can catch up with friends.

Lex survived chicken pox with only minimal spots, MaybeZoe had even fewer spots when she caught it. MZ now has six teeth, five of which are on the same side of her mouth, all of which came up in a three week period. She's not quite crawling yet, but is mobile enough to cause trouble.

Lex is still being an awesome big brother. Biggest problem now he and MZ are sharing a room is that he keeps wanting to make her giggle and laugh when they should both be getting sleep.
