Today it was back to the Doc for Mr. Miles. Turns out he has an ear infection in both ears. That would explain the screeching-in-pain cries and grabbing of the ears all night. In my bed. Also he soaked our sheets, climbed on my head and demanded juice every hour on the hour. Sick kids are hell on the sleep I tell yah.
But despite my tears of exhaustion at 5:30 AM this morning, I am much relieved. A) To have a new drug for to kill this ear monster that threatens to ruin the weekend. And B) To be done with work. (Almost. Just one delivery to do and that billing I keep mentioning, but it doesn’t feel weighty or urgent. All that is for next week.) So guess what is on tomorrows agenda? Nothing. Nada. Zilch.Hurray! Hurray! If Miles doesn’t sleep tonight, so what? I don’t have to be anywhere or do anything or see anybody all day. Of course I am desperately hoping he does sleep. And that maybe he sleeps all night. But I will not fret either way.
So to celebrate my new found freedom I am posting pics of ornaments from our fairy tree…
This is the one Wylie refers to as the Angel Hat. He made it 2 years ago (?) We always manage to find a way to prop it up on a limb.
This is a mix of new and vintage balls. Lovely and so shiny bright.
Can you spy the little skates? They are vintage and probably homemade. So sweet. Also, I firmly believe that on fairy tree’s one can never have too much tinsel.
A reproduction glass Santa I received in an ornament exchange a few ago. He is my largest ornament and always seems to keep the other smaller and unruly ornaments in line.
have you tried the similisan ear drops? they are homyopathic and work quite well. they have an oily consistency abd come ina little brown bottle. you can get them at most drugstores. i just know they have saved many a sleepless night.
