I'm leaving for Girls Weekend 2008 on Friday! 5 of my girlfriends and I are flying to Myrtle Beach, SC for the long weekend. And yes, it will be blogged about by both me and her!
But guess what?
Middle had croup on Saturday night that's now turning into a phleghmy and chesty cough. We were up with him Saturday night and again last night.
Eldest got sent home from school yesterday with a fever of 103. He said his throat hurts, so Hubby is taking him to the doctor at 11:45 today to check for strep. *It's not strep, it's the dreadful coxsackie virus, AGAIN!*
I am here at work. Of course. Taking a sick day on behalf of a sick child is frowned upon here, remember? My vacation days are spoken for through the rest of 2008. So I would have to lie and call in and say that I'M SICK. (Which, mind you, I'm certainly not above doing if it's for the good of my family.)
Thankfully today, though, our babysitter swore that she didn't mind being home with Eldest. Middle (who is showing no other symptoms besides a rotten cough that is way worse at night) and Baby both have preschool this morning.
Our car just failed inspection and we have 60 days to get it fixed.
We bought Eldest an iPod Shuffle for his birthday and he was sooooo excited about it. When I tried to download songs on it, it didn't work.
So now I am without a computer at home (No e-mail. No Facebook. The HORROR!) because Hubby's assistant's husband is going to get us more memory and a new hard drive. And make sure my recovered pictures are there. And fix the iPod issue. Bless that man.
I'm sooooo ready for Friday. To fly far, far away on a plane.
And then return to the Trenches refreshed, relaxed and re-energized. Eager to hug Hubby and the boyz. OF COURSE.
