I woke up a little while ago, freezing. Usually I like the house being a bit cool at night but not this time. The wind was howling again and the windchimes on the front porch doing more clanging than singing. I sat wrapped up on the couch and listened for a while, thinking about the bowl of wild rice and very seasoned beef that was in the refrigerator, but knowing it was not a good thing to eat in the middle of the night and still hope to feel good in the morning.:)
I think one child is sick. I got him back up at 10pm after listening to sniffling and choking for a bit. I gave him some multi-symptom Tylenol and he went on to sleep but I've a feeling he'll be worse when he wakes up. I'm concerned about another child because she was so QUIET before bed. Not that she's usually a fountain of information but she just kept her mouth clamped shut and nodded in reply. Then the other one, well I think she ate too much, what she had for dinner plus I think she raided the kitchen again, I'm surprised she isn't up with a bellyache already. Sometimes I worry about them all, especially since they have me as a mother, a job which I'm pretty sure I wasn't cut out for. But I love them dearly so I do my best at acting as a motherly mother should.
I've looked around on LJ and found a few things to read, a scattering of Clone Wars stories here and there. A lot of Anakin/Obi-Wan but I don't care too much for that, not that they weren't well-written/funny/whatever, I guess I'm too much of an Anakin/Padme shipper. I like all the little stories about the clones that are popping up.
I hunted up my old copy of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
so I could read it along with ahsoka_tano
's community. I could be reading a few chapters now I suppose, I can't even remember how the story starts off or when I last read it. Many years and children ago.
