sick mommy

And now I am sick. YUCK! I had almost decided it was allergies, the weed pollen is very high in this part of the state, and the snot is running freely and continues to run even today. Yesterday was horrible and I look like Bozo the Clown with my red nose. I would stay home sick, but I don't have any sick time built up (I had to use it all in order to have paid maternity leave) and I hate to miss work to be sick. If I am taking time off work, I want it to be for something fun.

sick baby

We have a sick baby at our house. Just a cold. But it is her first cold. And I am not handling it very well. She is all snotty and we are sucking it out with the big green bulb thingy and all that snot is just gross, and we are real sorry that she doesn't like it...but we gotta do it. Let's hope this doesn't last long and we all get some sleep tonight.

Another day...

Happy Birthday Sister! AND Sweet Pea is 2 months old.

I have to miss my lunch date with daughter dear to attend meetings today and tomorrow. I fear it will be a long day. And when I pick her up she will either be sleepy or fussy, so I won't have any fun time with her. This morning she slept in with Daddy and I had to wake her up and take her to the sitters. I think it should be an acceptable excuse to miss work, when your daughter is being snuggly. The world would be a better place if it was!

back on the job

I am back at work this week. Which means I have time to add to my blog. I am still trying to get the hang of this blogging thing and also adding photos has eluded me. I suppose because I am on my work computer and I have the photos on my home computer.

Sweet Pea is at the sitter this week and they are loving her. She is so smiley when I drop her off in the morning and then when I pick her up there is just a little bit of smileyness left in her, until she turns into that fussy baby we both know and love. I have been able to feed her lunch this week, but am worried when I have to start traveling and lunch for her will be a bottle and my lunch hour will be filled with the sound of the breast pump.

I finally ordered my stroller. I know the child is only 2 mo old, but I want a jog stroller to take her to the softball games and on long walks around the neighborhood. This is the stroller I wanted, I love the chocolate and pink color. And this is the stroller I bought*. Just could not justify the cost right now and Honey Bun implied that if I was going to spend that much on a jog stroller...I should start jogging. So I spent the rest of the wedding gift cards on my stroller. It is being delivered this week. Watch out world, Sweet Pea and her mommy will be strolling around.
*If I don't like it, I am still reserving the option to return it and get the fancy one!

Hurray for me--I put two links in this posting. Are you on pins and needles to see what I will figure out next?
