I am feeling a little run down with a cold today. Nothing full blown just some post nasal drip and a very sore throat. It is making teaching kind of yucky today. One of the hazards of the job...these kids keep bringing in germs. You would think by now I would have been exposed to every bug imaginable.

I didn't sleep great and had to get up and gargle salt water in the middle of the night last night. Yuck. Today I am living on tea with honey and the knowledge that tomorrow is Friday. One more class to teach, a meeting, and then the nanny job. Sophie has a play date and they want to go back to my school and look at rocks and minerals with me (crazy kids!). It will keep them busy for a while at least so that is good. No baby news. Though I think my kid is quite cute! I think s/he has my nose! I emailed my sister a picture and have not heard anything back from her. I guess I should be happy that she didn't say anything snarky but you would think one could right back and say something. I wasn't planning on sending it to her but my mother made me. She actually thinks my sister is going to be excited that I am having a baby. In reality I know my sister could not be more pissed as it means that she will get less attention. Oh well...going to make more tea.

I don't usually comment on blogs, but I stumbled upon yours and I enjoy it! (I'm from Boston too...although I live in Western MA now.) I just wanted to say that I feel for you guys on the situation with your sister. I'm sorry. I can somewhat relate. When my husband and I had our first my family felt everybody else's feelings came before ours.

Your sister sounds jealous that you have happiness in your life. There is no reasoning with that. I know it is hard because sisters should be happy for each other, but stay away from her negitivity. She knows that she is hurting you and it just gives her some odd sense of power.

Hope you are feeling better...and by the way Congratulations on your baby!! :-)
