Rotten night

Just had one of the more exhausting nights of my life. Wish I could say "in a good way," but it wasn't. -_-; Pixie had a terrible time sleeping so I had to stay by her side all night. For a while it was kind of scary (I think she was having very bad dreams). She is a restless sleeper at the best of times and last night was worse than usual. (She slept next to me in the big bed, Toly slept in the office.) Compounding this was the fact that yesterday afternoon I got a sore throat and by now it's full-blown head cold - stuffy, runny nose, cough, etc. So of course I'm fatigued like anything but got truly horrible sleep. Not even sure if I got more than an hour at a time.

Anyway, we now have a new coffee carafe (Toly got one for me) so I have washed it out and am making coffee, which will provide both caffeine & warmth & something to wash the meds down with.

Last night I'd called the pediatrician answering service to ask about Pixie's continual low-grade fever and they said if she still had it by this morning to bring her in. Which I'm planning to after this past night. Ugh. (She also wanted to sleep with the light on; I sleep best with the light off; you get the idea) So she'll probably miss another day of school unless she wakes up in the next 30-60 minutes with a miraculous recovery.

Imp slept like a log, thank goodness for small favors.

Today I need to buy tissues, probably more cold meds, milk, and bread. Oh, and after a normal breakfast, an apple, and a large protein-heavy lunch, I didn't eat anything the rest of yesterday, though possibly that was me getting sick causing it. I wasn't hungry. I got a ton of the currants and gooseberry done on the sampler, though. Downloaded/unzipped a bunch of Sims stuff. Tried to get into CoH for the Valentine's Day special but with Pixie sick, no luck there. (Hey, saintnicster - wanna team up Trixie Vixie and Bone sometime for that?)

Off to get coffee. Wish I had more brainpower right now.
