The Sunday Salon [9.15.13]

The Sunday

This has been a ROUGH week in my house. Out of the last 8 days, I have called the pediatrician’s office on 7 of them. And we had our first trip to the emergency room. Evan went from just having a rash at a vaccine injection site to a stomach bug to croup to feeling better to feeling worse again with a cold. He’s back to running a decent fever, but the doctor we saw today says it’s just back to back viruses and we can’t do much about it but wait. I haven’t been to work since Tuesday and it does not look like I will be going in to the office tomorrow. And on top of all of that, Ben and I are both sick. Hoping for a better week this week.

So now you know why there has been radio silence on the blog.

As for reading, I really haven’t done much at all. I have read a bit of A Farewell to Arms for our chat over at Rory’s Book Club and I am almost done listening to Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock. But a lot of my “free” time has just been lost this week.

So, readers, tell me one awesome thing you did this week so I can live vicariously through you.

    Wow that sounds like an awful week. Poor Evan and poor you guys!! I won’t even tell you about my work week because it doesn’t compare to being home with a sick kid all week. 😦 If you want to live vicariously through me, today I’m going to Aquatica! (Sea World’s waterpark.)

      Oh, that sounds like fun! Sea World is the one major theme park I haven’t visited since I moved here.

    When your kids are sick, it is stressful! Because you don’t want them to feel bad, and also you have your comfy routines that are shot all to hell. When I worked, my husband and I would always have an argument on who was more important at that moment, and the loser had to leave to take care of the sick kid. I hated that. I certainly hope all this stuff runs its course and you get back to normal. I’m afraid you wouldn’t want to live vicariously through me. The most fun I’ll have this weekend is sitting down at some point this evening with a glass of wine and a book.

    Can’t say I did anything awesome but I do hope Evan is feeling better. My son had a hard time with vaccines in general. He either reacted to them or was well when he visited the office and then would pick up horrible super-viruses while there. I actually pitched a fit once that vaccines and well-baby visits should be separate from the kids who are sick and now that is how they handle the patients.

      One of the pediatricians’ offices we visited did that – separate waiting areas. Ours does not. But they are open 7 days a week…
