I'm Covered In It

Tonight I am feeling very overwhelmed or maybe just sad. The awful cold I had a month ago has stayed with me in the form of a cough. Now it is coming back again and I am so tired of being sick. Keegan wouldn't go to sleep tonight until after 10 pm and then he just woke up again from a nightmare. Earlier I had him asleep in my arms and the dog barked for no reason. He woke up screaming and I couldn't get him to calm down. Then his hysteria resulted in him vomiting all down the front of my pyjama top. I got him quieted and then I changed but I can still smell it. Tomorrow is my second interview that was scheduled for Tues. but they cancelled that morning. So I am feeling stressed because I should be getting prepared but I am not exactly able to believe it is really going to happen. I am apprehensive waiting for these major life changes to happen. New job and putting Keegan in daycare are both exciting and scary. And it probably wouldn't be so bad if I didn't feel so alone in my own house. Well I am off to shower to get rid of the odor of curdled soy formula and maybe I'll get some rest.
