Random updates

I know my posts have been fewer and further between, and I'm sorry for that. There's just been a lot going on.

Little Man is getting over a really nasty cold. A cold that could have been prevented if a certain little boys' mother had taught him early that he should cover his mouth when he sneezes! I was picking up my Little from daycare and there was an older boy in his class (not sure why he was in there), and as I was strapping my cutie into his seat, the boy came over to check things out. And then SNEEZED IN MY BABY'S FACE! Yes, right in his face; no hand, no tissue, no holds barred. It was so gross. I grabbed a wipe and cleaned him off right away, but I guess it wasn't fast enough. My poor baby had a terrible cough, a runny nose, and he slept so much that I started to get really worried. I schedule him an appointment with the pediatrician and was told that there wasn't anything they could give him and that it would just have to run its course. All I could do was make sure his mattress was elevated, use his humidifier, suck out the booger whenever he would let me, and make sure he stayed hydrated. I had a nice long talk with the school director about how infants' immune systems just aren't up to par with older children and that I felt it was inappropriate for them to be in the infant room. He agreed to keep a closer eye out (because he supposedly had no idea that this was all going on) and apologized for what happened.

I had an unexpected (ok, I knew it was coming) visitor a couple of days ago. I got my first PP AF! Fuuuun! *note sarcasm* It actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. It wasn't accompanied by the debilitating cramps that normally announce it's arrival; compared to some really bad ones I've had, this one was a cake walk.

In happier news, I only have 32 days left in the hell hole I call a job! Yes people, I am counting down the days. I have a literal countdown on my desk too. That way, I can look at it when I'm having a bad day (which seem to be more frequent) and feel better knowing that the end is in sight.

Just 4 more Mondays! It can't pass quickly enough, the other day I was leaving the daycare in the afternoon and my Little started crying and reaching for me. He'd never done that before; I broke down and cried on the elevator back up to my floor. Being able to stay home with him will be such a joy.

And in 33 days, my little sister comes home from Korea on leave! I haven't seen her in what seems like forever. I am beside myself with excitement! She'll only be here for a few days, but hey, it's better than nothing right? If I could have my way though, she'd spend two weeks with us instead of one, but she's determined to go back to Cali to see her (ex) boyfriend. I swear, if there was one person that I could snap my fingers and make drop off the edge of the planet, it would be this guy. They've broken up and gotten back together so many times that I've lost count. I don't know what is up with her; she seems like such a strong willed person when it comes to so many things in her life, but for some reason, she can't shake her feelings for him. He's treated her like crap for so long, that I'm afraid she thinks that just the way things are. He's such a pompous little a-hole too. A 19 year old philosophy major who thinks he knows it all. I'm sure you know the type. And for the record, WTH is he going to be able to do with major in philosophy? No seriously, if there is a legitimate philosophy related job out there where you can actually make money in this economy, please, I want to know what it is. Otherwise, he will also fall in the "delusional" category (among many other categories, including King Douche).

So glad that you'll get to stay home with him soon...I wish that something like that would open up for Grant and I, and we could do this!
