Please don't come into the basement and start screaming "KNOCK KNOCK!!!!! KNOCK KNOCK!!!!" repeatedly at the top of your lungs at 7am when you know we're all sleeping. And then don't proceed to knock (bang with your fist) on the door. You've already announced your presence and frightened my sleeping children enough.
Backstory: DD had playgroup today. We were supposed to walk, and I was supposed to walk with my nephew as well. It was around 20 degrees this morning and I'd normally be perfectly fine with taking the kids out.... but my DD1 still has a really bad cough and she was up all night (more than usual, lol, ALL night). The cold air seems to irritate her cough more and she was very tired so I figured I'd keep her home. I called my MIL and her mother (who cares for nephew), left messages, and sent backup text messages to be sure, to let them know that we wouldn't be going but that I'd be more than happy to put my nephew's car seat in the car if they wanted to take him. Supposedly no one got my messages. Ok, might have happened. But still! WHYYY! Now my kids are cranky as ever and I.Cannot.Wait.For.Naptime!!! When MIL came banging and screaming, she had my nephew with her all bundled up to go out. The playgroup doesn't even start until 10am and is a 10 minute walk away. MIL knows this. It was 7am.
Sidenote:Dear immune system, can we please open up a can of you-know-what on this flu? Please? I need to continue my job search in person. I need to get out of here. Muchas gracias.
tired, fed up, sick ME.
