Wow! I am sure glad today is almost over!

Actually, the day started out great! Ezra slept straight through from 9pm until 3am this morning. I should have started out the morning on top of my game, but that wasn't the case. He is still pretty congested and I had to repeatedly clean out his nose with saline drops and the nasal aspirator. I really hate it more than he does, but I don't think he believes me when I tell him that. Poor baby wants to be held all the time. Luz is also congested and very grumpy. Poor girl doesn't know what she wants. She spent most of the morning in trouble for grumpy behavior. Then I finally realized that she really just didn't feel well. So, I gave her a Benadryl and put her on the couch in front of a movie. We made peace while the movie lasted but once it was over...back to super grumpiness. By then Juan was home. However, he was also grumpy. He had severe back pain and had to go to the specialist to relieve it today. He hates going. He hates paying the money and the massage is pretty painful. But he did come home feeling physically better. I put the 2 grumpy ones downstairs playing together while I finished up with dinner. They actually had some fun playing for a few minutes. On another good note, I made some fabulous chicken soup today. It was a miracle worker. As soon as we all had a few bites in our bodies, everyone's disposition changed and we had a very pleasant evening. Note to self: next time make the chicken soup for breakfast!
