#2 = long week!

No Wordless Wednesday today. Kira went to the dr Monday and we found out she has another ear infection. It was one heck of a weekend and she is supposed to be doing better tomorrow. Oh man I hope so. She has been so fussy and irritable, doesn't want to be set down and fights going to sleep and eating. I guess it hurts to lay down? On top of that she has a cold, congestion, runny nose, cough and sneezing. Paige had a fever, runny nose and tons of sneezing and must have passed it on to Kira. The odd thing is she doesn't show a fever, I would swear by touching her that she had a fever and her cheeks get all red but I take her temp and it's always between 98.5 and 99.3, I've even tried different thermomaters and the dr's show the same. I hope the medicine kicks in and she does better tomorrow, I have a lot to do/cook.

Looks like it will be just us again this year, Toby's family has yet to call us to tell us if there is a family gathering. They do this every year, except usually they call Tuesday AFTER I have bought an entire Thanksgiving meal to tell us that the dinner is at so-and-so's house. No call this year though. Toby's Uncle was in town so maybe the decided to have it early and just didn't bother to invite us-wouldn't surprise me one bit. Heck Kali's birthday was the 8th and grandma hasn't been out to see her yet @@. I so regret moving from my family but I know even without his family living here is far better than where we were.

Kira is doing better, but I am not. She went to the dr yesterday and her ears were fine and they didn't see anything wrong with her. She got her RSV vaccine but it isn't effective until next month so we still have to be careful w/her. Last night around 3am I woke up with must be whatever she had. I felt/feel horrible. I'd rather be in bed right now but I have a test and two papers due NOW. Kira being sick and needy put me behind so now I feel crappy and try to get through my assignments.

Can't get here soon enough. She isn't as fussy as she has been but she is congested and her whites of her eyes are red. How strange is that, it doesn't look like pink eye and there are no goopies like pink eye would be but she just looks not well. Like she hasn't slept all night or something.

McFussin update.

Well after I posted that Kira immediately decided to both puke and poo on me. Maybe there is a little bit of something going on w/her. I will hopefully find out tomorrow afternoon.

Fussy McFussin Pants

OMGosh I am about to freakin loose my mind. Kira has been so dang fussy since Saturday. Kali had her birthday party and had 4 girls stay the night and I don't think that Kira felt comfy with all these extra peeps in the house. Once the girls left on Sunday she immediately fell asleep for 3 hours, but once she woke up OH MAN! It has been nearly non-stop fussiness. She will nap for a bit if I'm holding her and don't move or breathe (lol) but if I do or say anything she is up fussing again. She goes to the dr tomorrow for her RSV vaccine and to be checked out. I don't think that it is an illness or infection as she has no fever, maybe it's her teeth? I dunno, all I know is I hope it ends soon.

She had her 6 month well baby visit on the 6th and she weighed in at 19lbs 2.2oz (95%), was 26 1/4 inches long (75%) and her head was 16 7/8inches (75%). They showed me her preemie chart - I guess they still plot it until 1 yr - and she was way, way off of that chart LOL. She was nearly off of the regular baby chart. She is doing well developementally as far as they could see and didn't think it was a big deal that she *still* isn't rolling.

"Him's is my friend!"

"I kiss him now."

And here is Kira being grumpy in her ladybug costume.

Guess the road kill....

is the new game that my kids created in the car. I have no idea why they want to but when they see a poor cridder on the side of the road, or worse flattened into the road (ewwww!!!!) they try to decide the type of animal it is. This game is less annoying then "My Cow" but pretty gross. Kali has also taken it upon herself to tell me whenever she thinks that someone 'got a deer' in the road due to the stain in the asphalt. Oh joy!

On another note, the dealership has fixed my Exploder so I will have to say good-bye to my roomy rental and go back to my matchbox baby. At least I will have the 'voice' to guide me again. Hopefully I wont be standing around at the polls too long and I can be home by naptime :).

Uhhhh my car told me to call you.......

Yup, that's what happened! I was driving down the road when my navigation errored out along with all the lights on my dash that had to do with brakes. Bells were binging and when I hit the navigation error it told me to call my dealership. So I called them up and told them that my car told me to call you. They got a kick out of that. I took my car in on Friday and she has to spend the weekend there. They did give me a nice little F-250 crew cab to drive, it's very nice and roomy and I'm now wanting one. It's funny because it's the car that Toby had wanted to get me instead of the Explorer.

Also, I didn't realize how dependant I have become on my navigation until I drove a vehicle with out it! Our dealership is in Blair, Nebraska, which is a little town outside of Omaha. From our house we take little back road highways to get there and usually I just plug in the address and go but on the way home I was a bit nervous not sure if I was going the right way or not. I DID go the right way but I sure do miss the lady that tells me to turn right in two tenths of a mile LOL.
