In-laws and sick child - November 28th, 2011
Whew! Last week was a whirlwind of cleaning, planning meals, and more cleaning! My in-laws came on Friday morning and we had a second Thanksgiving dinner (first one was at my parents' house on Thursday). I made a couple of dishes for Thursday, but had to make the whole meal for Friday. I took all sorts of shortcuts, but it still wore me out! I have also been on the cusp of getting sick for a few weeks now, and it finally caught up with me on Saturday. Of course, it also caught up to RoBet the same day and her fever spiked to 103. =( Poor kiddo. We ended up taking her to a children's urgent care facility in the next suburb over. The trip took us 3 hours and was horrible with lots of screaming and crying and generally unhappiness from the kiddo. By the time we got home, all of the pharmacies here were closed too, so she didn't get her first dose of antibiotics until Sunday morning. Saturday night sucked. She woke up every hour and was awake for 30 - 60 minutes each time. Ugh. So, it's been a crazy few days 'round here. We're both starting to feel better now though, but I need to take the rest of her nap time to get some rest myself! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
