Aside from being sick...




Today was a good day. I'm still dealing with the cold that Deacon (and the rest of his daycare) had and just felt really run down today... when I woke up I was convinced that I wouldn't get anything done today- which means (no offense, Damien) that nothing would get since Damien would want to just hang out too. Damien woke up grumpy so instead of listening to Deacon and Damien fighting downstairs I volunteered to just wake up with our early riser... and Deacon surprised me with letting me sleep on the couch while he just hung out and played. I never really fell asleep but started feeling a lot better so I started some laundry and got annoyed with how messy our laundry room had gotten- so I organized it. By then Damien woke up and we all got dressed and went to the Farmers Market in Davis- which was a total bust. They had tons of oranges, but nothing else really... so we hung out at the park for a while and came home. By then I wasn't feeling well at all so Deacon and I took a nap. Damien turned on his helpful hat and surprised me by completely organizing my UCLA shelf in the garage (I can't lift the boxes) and organizing Deacon's art supplies too... he then came in and totally cleaned the kitchen. After naptime we decided to be nice parents again and got out the paint supplies. Since it was so nice we took it all outside- which Deacon loved (though he wasn't pleased when we made him at least put on a shirt and undies). Damien got even more done outside- mowed the lawn, picked up poop and helped Deacon paint.

I finally drug myself out of the chair around 4 so I could make dinner... I wanted to try a new pizza crust recipe so I chose one of the top rated recipes from www.allrecipes.com (a favorite site of mine). Jay's Signature Crust turned out really well- I liked that it was chewy and crispy. Elise's dough is still my favorite, but Jay's is a real close second.

So now I'm in bed and feeling like I could OD on cough drops... someone really needs to come up with a cold medicine that's safe to take while pregnant. I would kiss that person.
