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... Continue Reading →

mah friday

Today's doctor visit was very, anticlimactic, to say the least. I got a lot of "hmmm"s and "I see"s. And then he gave me some random sample meds to try, said "good luck with that" and sent me on my way. Thank you Dr. Decisive. I got a nice nap in today and then took... Continue Reading →

food is not my friend

So this eating thing is not going so well. Since Friday night (that's approximately 4 and a half days ago) I have had one can of Chicken Noodle Soup, a handful of pretzels and saltines, part of a frozen Smart Ones, and a portion of a Zaxby's combo meal. That is it. I am living... Continue Reading →

bodies break

So far so good on the 1/2 training. Mostly. I was pumped to run outside last night but by the time I was free to do so, it was pouring rain and lightning. I will run in the rain no problem, but lightning is another bear. So to the gym I went and got in... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

sad panda

That title makes me think of the kid's show/movie, Kung Fu Panda, which we are big fans of in our house. Of all the kiddie shows out there, that one cracks me up and I love it even more than my offspring. Yes, we let our 3.5 year old watch that show. I know I... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

kind of the pits

This weekend I mean. I'm sick yet again. Its my bi-monthly sinus infection. Welcome Back Snotter and all that jazz. I'm sure the clinic will just throw amoxicillin at me since I'm a regular. I'm wondering if a visit to an ENT or some such is in order. And don't faint, but I am THIS... Continue Reading →

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.... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

ok, and again

very frustrating doctor appt with sam. waited over an hour after appointment time. sam was bored and cranky and pitched the classic stomach to the floor kicking and screaming tantrum. three times. the good news is that she's better, just have to continue the meds until they're gone. so, onward.

sick again. go figure.

I mean, its been a couple of weeks right? About time to be sick again. Daycare called me about 2:30 today. Sam had a 101.1 (that point 1 is very important, heh) fever, cough had worsened, not eating and very fussy. Poor kid is miserable but has her chipper moments still. She ate a bit... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

i’m back. in black.

Hey ya peeps. So i'm back in tn. NYC was all kinds of fantabulousness, as you've probably gathered by now. I'll post some pics here later maybe but we'll see. Most of you saw them on Twitter but since I can't convince all of my friends and family to get on the Twitter bandwagon I'll probably... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

yeah, breathing is nice

I can't breathe. For whatever reason, my asthma has decided to go into overdrive this weekend and it feels like the proverbial elephant is sitting on my chest. I hate that tightness, the vice-like grip on my lungs. I haven't had a spell in a long time so of course, I was all out of my... Continue Reading →

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.... Continue Reading →

sam update

First of all, a big thank you to all my great friends and family who have checked up on us and Sam. Hugs and love all around. 🙂 I'm home with her today and she has been in a good mood and doesn't seem to feel bad. I still haven't gotten a call from the... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

Sam 4 month stats

Sam had her 4 month check up and shots today. The shots were ooky.  She cried, I cried. It was a sob fest in exam room # 2. She got over the tears quickly though and has been a real trooper tonight. She's sporting some very cool Tazmanian Devil bandaids right now. I gave her some infant Tylenol... Continue Reading →
