So we’ve been home all week with a virus. It’s just a fever, and so far just Miss C has it. She’s eating a little, drinking water and juice like nobody’s bidness and watching a whole hellava lotta TV.
I feel bad about the TV but I have to work. I’m lucky I have the flexibility to telecommute when my daughter gets sick. I know a lot of people don’t have that option.
C has been going from being kind of chill and just layin on the couch to clingy and wanting hugs to crazy and climbing on my head.
On the plus side, her doc says these viral fevers can last 3-6 days… so if nothing else we’re at least halfway through this… and while she doesn’t seem that ill, I still can’t send her back to daycare until she’s fever-free for 24 hours.
We’ve also gotten to watch Beauty and the Beast for the first time, and she really liked it. And we’ve had lots and lots of extra snuggle time.
On the negative side, I’m going a little nuts. Or maybe I’m catching what she has. Or maybe I’ve just had it with sass today.
I want to go back to the office and talk to adults. Wah.
In other news… as usual, life is busy. Work has been crazy busy… which is good… just crazy.
I have to get my tax papers together for next week. I have to get other receipts together for my FSA plan.
Photos: We did a new photoshoot of C with our wonderful photographer, Kris Rupp. She called me today to set up an appointment to review the images and I can’t wait to see them!
Juicing: I’ve been doing this but I want to do more. Right now I’m trying to have at least one fresh veggie-fruit juice a day. I want to do a 3-day juice fast but I have to get my shizat together.
Failing: I saw this article and thought it was share-worthy, especially because I really need to try to remember this as I help a frustrated C trace letters on her Leap Pad game.
Boobie Beanie: I also have a couple pregnant friends and I saw this and though OMG I have to get one of these for them…
Chop-It-Up Veggie Salad with Tahini Garlic Dressing: I want to try this. I still have not had the chance!!!
Until we meet again….
