I transferred Ella to her bed. I should have rested because I was coughing a lot and feeling like I was getting sick. Instead I used my computer and did some stuff on my to-do list. I also put away crafts from my card class on January 22! Normally I lie in bed and rest a bit and use my laptop but when I went in there Dave commented that I wouldn't be in there coughing the entire time so then I didn't stick around.
Then I wanted to lie on the couch. Ella doesn't let me just lie. She tries to join me but moves all around. She smashes her head into my head. She even had to give Dave my blanket and then give me his.
We tried to start bedtime around 8:30. Ella was even tucked in at one point then I see her going into her closet. That's where her potty is. She comes out a bit later with her pjs around her ankles. She's very proud that she peed in the potty. She was in the dark too. Then she tells me she has to poop so I'm in there with her for what feels like forever. Finally I give her a night light and tell her she can stay there and I was leaving. Minutes later she peed a ton and walked to the door asking for help. But then she wanted to poop again. She is a queen of stalling. She has discovered potty is the only thing that she gets to stay up for.
Finally around 10:30 she was asleep! I was tired. Right around dinner time I started to feel so much worse. I was coughing so much that I was making myself lightheaded. Also I was having to blow my nose a ton!
