Up with the birds.

It is only 6:44 a.m. as I begin typing this post...probably my earliest one yet. I am up only because Mike needs muffins for his final day of school today and I forgot last night that it was for today. I had it in my brain that it was for a Friday. Duh. So, after a very late night (after 1 a.m.) due to continual sewer problems, here I am. Up at shortly after 6 a.m. and muffins in the oven. Of course the boys were up when I got up and I had to shush them, hence the reason I woke up in the first place. Micah is also fussing. I think he is teething. If not, he is sick. He had a bad night last night too.

Even still, so far I feel a bit better than I did yesterday morning. I did not feel well at all yesterday, so I napped all afternoon while Micah did and I let the boys watch TV. Of course it made them grumpy, but I really had no choice. I was feeling gross, plus I fell down the stairs on the ice outside when I went out to feed the horses first thing in the morning. I have a big bruise on my very lower back, really my butt, I guess, and one higher on my back too. I felt weird for a while after that. So the nap was needed.

In the evening, while Mike messed with the sewer stuff, I baked some of my sugar cookies. Several. Probably close to eighty. The rest I will do this afternoon with Cody after he is done at preschool. Sheesh. I also made my prune filling for my venetarta. I know it's dumb, but I was a bit stressed out making the filling. I've never done it without my mom's supervision before. I hope it turned out okay. I probably won't make the layers and the rest of it until tomorrow. I'll be busy today with cookies, icing and sprinkles. Some time I will be wrapping too.

I am really hoping we are all feeling better. Cody has a bit of a cold and I do too, but that's no big deal.

Anyway, I am really dopey here, and I think the muffins will be beeping soon, so I'm going to sign out. The boys are now in the living room with me, in the dark, with only the Christmas tree lights on. It's nice. Except for all the vocal engine sounds. But they are making a marginal effort to do it quietly. I'm off for now.
