so did everything else but food and rest. and work for dear hubs, coz he has a deadline to finish 3 peoples' work..3 people who did not care about the deadline and submitted unfinished work one week prior for "finishing and polishing".. so he is spending days and nights trying to make some sense of each - on top of fever and chills and sinusitis.

today has been the bluest of all days for me. for one thing, i am stuck in the house, coz the baby is sick and i dont want to expose her to more cold weather, chinnu is wheezing again, prathe is still working on that office thing and totally out of the house..comes home to eat, then run off again. ponnu had a storytelling competition at sunday school and she told noah's story.. obviously with only 2 days planning. now i know that she isnt bilingual at all.. of course she can understand english and malayalam, but if you tell her to speak, it quickly becomes obvious that she has big gaps in the vocabulary of both languages. it doesnt help my mood any that i know i'm the reason for those gaps..if only i was more talkative, she would know more words. i totally miss having extended family around..
our cordless phone is broken, so i have to sit in one place to call someone. everyone knows how difficult that is with a sick amy and a sick chinnu and all the chores too. so i cant sit down to talk to anyone, and havent called anyone in almost 4 months..except home to india. life is becoming more lonely..thats my fault too..if only i had kept up contact with everyone...
feels like years went by after christmas..now its just me and the kids and nothing else..totally missing my dear hubs and his presence..these days its like "hi, chinnu is running a fever, bye". he will have his semester break soon..so there is light at the end of this tunnel.
no one writes to me..my inbox has nothing but newsletters..my old friends have new friends now. seems like todays the day for me to be sad.
amy's in a a growth spurt..so i'm totally 'touched out'...all moms will know what that means. i need a break. but i wont get any, because ponnu has a test tomorrow, chinnu needs me to hold her hand while she sleeps, tomorrow there is school so there's laundry to do, meals to plan, a whole house to clean.
well, tomorrow is a brand new day. hope this feeling gets better.

I've been following flylady's "babysteps" for a long while now, so when I saw a ycmt babysteps quiltalong, i had to join in. There are a lot of scraps from all the clothes I made for the girls, and new fabric is just sitting there because I dont have much time to sew with the kiddos competing for attention. Amy is just starting to roll over, and i want a playquilt for her , made from scraps of her big sisters' clothes. The first step seems super simple, so i'm sure i can make the time!
The 'one post a day' resolution is already broken, now i'm going for 'at least one post in a week'. Let me see if i can do that:)
Amy is in the middle of a nasty flu right now, so guys, we need prayers!
