weekend report

This weekend has been pretty great. This was the last weekend before hub’s busy time of year officially starts so we spent Friday together being lazy and then making up for said laziness by going to the gym. We’d also lined up a babysitter for Friday night. Kiddo loves this particular sitter but sadly, she will graduate in May and is moving away. Hopefully we’ll … Continue reading weekend report

check your ambition at the door

So, I’m like the poster child for testing new antidepressants. Bah. I went to the doctor today about some issues with my current ones so we are switching again. Bah. It’s not as bad as it sounds I guess. This is only my 4th kind over many years. That’s not too awful right? Bah. Do you read those informational papers that come with all medications? … Continue reading check your ambition at the door

Today….did NOT suck!

Ok, honestly today kind of did, but yesterday was good. The  Accountant’s birthday was yesterday but we were too tired to celebrate much. Poor guy. Tax season is killing him and I’ve been immersed in federal grant land for weeks. But we have a sitter lined up for tomorrow night so we’ll do something in honor of his big day. Although, truth be told, I … Continue reading Today….did NOT suck!

sad panda goes to the doctor

Verdict: gained 10 pounds in a matter of weeks, change in meds, follow-up visit in a month, encouraged to seek therapy. Hello mid-life crisis. The next one that comes around I’m just going to buy a red sports car and be done with it. It sucks to know that the real you is so broken and messed up that it takes outside assistance to right … Continue reading sad panda goes to the doctor

I can’t make this stuff up

So now I have food poisoning or some sort of bacteria infection according to the doctor’s best guess. The night of The Stress Fracture Debacle I did the head in the toilet thing for a bit. I thought I had just stressed myself to the point of illness but then other things began to occur (I will spare  you the details) and The Accountant really … Continue reading I can’t make this stuff up

here i sit

In an exam room at my doctor’s office that is. They got me into a room without the usual one hour wait so that was nice. Of course, the doc might not get in here for another week or so. Scratch that. He’ll be here soon I’m sure. I’m trying to think more positively lately. Really. Not so brief recap of why I’m here…took Cooper … Continue reading here i sit

i fear the neti pot

I just went to the clinic for this yucky sinus stuff and yes, I have a sinus infection. I’m now armed with amoxicillin and instructions to go get mucinex and a neti pot or some sort of nasal irrigation/contraption/torture device. I’m good with the drugs, but the “take this thing that looks like a genie could pop out of it at any second and use it to pour liquid up … Continue reading i fear the neti pot

sam check up

Just a quickie for family to read about Sam’s doctor visit today. It was just for a check up and to get 2 immunizations. All is ok but there was a slight concern that she is losing weight, and not gaining at an appropriate level. She’s dropped below the 50th percentile and is only just over 19 lbs when she was at least 24ish. When … Continue reading sam check up

stuff ‘n things ‘n more stuff

Sam got her seasonal flu booster shot today, and an unexpected H1N1 shot. She’ll have to go back in a month for the H1N1 booster and then hopefully the flu will be so a’skeered of her it won’t dare go near the lil’ punkin. Crossing my fingers. She did ok. Screamed during the shots of course but so do I, heh. She’s finally at the … Continue reading stuff ‘n things ‘n more stuff

yeah, i dunno either

Why I’m still up at this hour I mean. It seems that if I want to do anything non-baby related, I have to do it late at night when the house is quiet and my mind is not so manic. Besides, I had some work to catch up on since procrastination is my homeboy and now that that’s done, here I am. Today has been rather hectic, … Continue reading yeah, i dunno either

a week of baby’s firsts

Here’s a very brief recap of the past week or so…. Sam’s birthday was great. Pics below. We grilled with the grandparents and the Elmo cake was a hit. Literally. One year well doctor appt went fine. Shots were given, screams were heard all over the doctor’s office and Peanuts bandaids administered to the wounds. Her stats are perfect. We went to the zoo yesterday; … Continue reading a week of baby’s firsts

so i’m a wuss

It would appear that I’m a big whiney baby. According to the x-rays there is nothing majorly wrong with my knees. Mr. Cutey Sports Medicine Doctor Man said that I probably have “somethin’ somethin’ blah blah blah” (a condition I obviously can’t pronounce, much less spell) and that I need to go to physical therapy to strengthen the somethin’ somethin’ blah blah blah muscles and … Continue reading so i’m a wuss

the highlights

Broken water pipe is fixed. Cost = over $1000 and only $6 were for parts, the other for labor. I shoulda been a plumber. Shout-out to Holt Plumbing. They were speedy, friendly and just about perfect. Just expensive. Sam had her 6 month check up and shots/immunizations on Wednesday. She cried during the shots but got over it quickly. I was proud of her. She … Continue reading the highlights

hello internets, i got a flu shot

I’ve been in an unusually chipper mood today and have been riding a very strange surge of energy that’s had me doing housework (gasp) and still raring to go at nearly midnight.  I will probably regret this in the morning but for now, I’m good.  I don’t know what is going on with me and it’s not even a full moon or anything.  Maybe it’s … Continue reading hello internets, i got a flu shot
