On the Blog, Books & Real Life:
Seriously don’t want to jinx it but this was a good week, nothing interesting and all was good. Had my first official day to myself on Friday since November and it was nice to spend the day alone. I planned so much and got nothing done because with all the stuff I have been doing since the week before Christmas I felt like I deserved a day to just sort of do nothing. It was good until about 12 and I got bored and missed the family so I took a little nap and then read until the kids came home. Once everyone was home I was able to do a bunch of blogging stuff and spent most of Saturday blogging as well.
It snowed on Saturday, I originally thought we would get a dusting or an inch but I think we got about 5 inches which was not expected. I didn’t shovel because last time I tried I couldn’t move for a week. Wasn’t doing that again. Julia and Ryan went out in the snow to play. Ryan came up first. Julia came up later (they were not out long) and she looked like a Snow Yeti. She had snowballs in her hair. She swims in the snow. I had to take everything off and set her up for a nice lukewarm shower to get the snow out of her hair. This might have been my big mistake. She was in the shower for a bit and then was calling my name, I think, I honestly don’t know if she did and neither does she. I went in and my heart dropped. She was WHITE as a Sheet! I have never seen her that white…She said “I see white, everything is white with bursts of white flowers” Quickly, I turned off the water and wrapped her in a warm towel to slowly take her out of the tub (I didn’t want her to pass out in there). I was guiding her towards the toilet to sit so she can put her head between her legs. She said she felt like she was going to be sick. When she didn’t do anything I stood her up so I could dry her off and get clothes on her and she got sick this time. Once she was done I dried her off completely and dressed her in warm PJs. Told her to go on the couch, I put socks and a wool hat on her, two blankets and made her Hot Chocolate. She is doing much better now but good lord she scared the shit out of me. I figured it was the extreme cold to the warm water. I should have let her sit and warm up a bit before she went into the water. Not sure if her blood pressure dropped or her heart rate slowed because of the change. It could have been her just having a tummy ache and not realizing it until she came up. I don’t know. I am keeping an eye on her and if anything happens I will take her to the doctors. She really scared me, I had two glasses of wine that night.
Today I will be visiting and blogging then we have a party to go to, I am not a fan of parties on Sunday but it is a family friend and I would feel bad missing it. I am feeling pretty good about where the blog is going and the posts that I have for it. Bloggiesta is this weekend (Jan 14-15) so that should help me get some posts finished since I plan to make the entire weekend a time to finish off Jan, then I can focus on Feb.
