I’d love to say that I didn’t post this morning because I was soundly sleeping in. But, nope, I had another horrible night of sleep that consisted of multiple coughing fits.
Anyways, maybe one day I’ll start to get healthy. Today is day 3 of antibiotics, so they should start to kick in anytime now. And, I desperately need them to kick in – we are hosting 5, maybe 12 family members this weekend. The first 5 people I am so incredibly excited to see – they live have a world away from us and we don’t often get to see them, and of course they planned this visit well before I got sick and it’s not something we can just reschedule. Some of my fondest memories of growing up are with my Aunt and Uncle. Even with the distance, and raising 5 kids of her own, my Aunt was an amazing surrogate mother to me after my mom died. She was there to do those girl things that no 14 year old really wants to ask their Dad to do – you know, shopping for things like bras and feminine products, getting our nails done, sewing my favourite shorts after I ripped them, etc. And more then anything, I didn’t fell like I had a lot of people in my corner at that time in my life, and she was always there when I need to talk. Needless to say, a visit with her, brings back so many fond memories.
The other possible 5 or 7 people, well they are just causing Mr. MPB and I a tad bit of stress. And honestly, very selfishly taking away from what I had envisioned for months as a special visit with my Aunt and my son. I think for me, in an odd way, I know I’ll never get to show my son off to my Mom, and so being able to share him with my Aunt is like a bit of a second best scenario. I’m not going to complain to those other people, because I know I’ll come across as whiny and selfish, and I just wont win in the long run. So, Mr. MPB and I are just accepting the weekend as whatever it will be.
But I cannot like, I’m already exhausted just thinking about the possibility of 12 people in our house that will not comfortably fit 12 people! And, my biggest concern is that I will have to sleep in our bed, next to Baby MPB’s room – which means if I’m still coughing I will wake up Baby MPB and Mr. MPB. Which means, Mr. MPB and I will be hosting family while being exhausted.
Wish us luck. Or maybe just wish us sleep!
