Well, first thing is first-- I got a night out at Issacs Hotel in Cork for Christmas and the girls were to stay with Cormac's parents in Cobh. Yay! I was hesistant, of course, because I have not left even Jane all night with anyone before. Wednesday was the day and we drove down to Cobh-- I wasn't feeling great then, but just tired so I didn't complain. First night out! Must feel good! Dropped off the girls and went into Cork. We had to go in and apply for our Notification of Marriage-- so after we had a very helpful and polite public sector employee help us I was feeling good. That was the last time. The rest of the night deteriorated. I started feeling really tired, then fevery... couldn't taste my food, couldn't really drink. We managed dinner at Boqueria and a few pints for Cormac and a hot toddy for me at Sin e but after that I had to get back. We bought The Hangover from Xtravision and watched it on my computer at the hotel. Bummer. It was still nice to get away.
We get back only to find that both girls are sick and Harper was upset a lot of the time.
So here we are, all sick with runny noses and on-off fevers and coughs. I thought about getting into the doctor today, but we'll likely go tomorrow, for Harper. She's sleeping pretty much all day since Thursday. When she is awake she eats, she plays, she smiles but is still very obviously sick. I don't like it. I know its probably a flu/viral but, eh, I wanna be sure. I feel like crap... if I could just sleep for two days I'd be over it but that's not going to happen.
We're getting married in Ireland, by the way. A small ceremony (we're probably getting married in the registry office as our venue is far from there and it will cost us an extra 250 euro just to have them drive out to us) of our own and our own food and booze with a few family and friends down in West Cork in www.inishbeg.com . Sometime in mid-May, aiming for the 17th-21st. We're going to try and go down to check it out the end of the week.
So, I promise, more updates as soon as I'm not dying anymore.
