John was away in San Francisco for a conference last week, from Sun – Fri. I don’t know why I do it to myself, but for some reason when he’s gone I watch this show Criminal Minds which is a drama about FBI profilers who work on these murder cases. John doesn’t really like the show so I save them to watch when he is not around. And then I turn off the TV and the episodes creep into my consciousness and make me paranoid. You would think I would learn to watch nice things like Sesame Street. You always feel good after watching Sesame Street.
We got on ok while John was gone, but of course the week was not without drama. On Tuesday when I went to Hayden’s daycare to feed him he started screaming at the top of his lungs for quite a while and didn’t really eat much. I figured he must not have been well because that is not like him, especially when it is me holding him. They called me in the afternoon and said he had a little temperature, so I picked him up early and talked to a nurse at his dr who thought he might have had an ear ache. He had a good night that night and was well enough (although not completely back to normal) the next day to go back to day care. He has been fine since.
Lucy threw up two different times while John was gone. She would be off doing her own thing elsewhere in the house, then run into the family room where I was and throw up three times. Thing is, she had alllllll this tile she could have thrown up on her way to the family room, but she had to get into the carpeted area where I was so I could 1) be there to witness the act and 2) get to clean it up off of the carpet instead of the easy tile. She is so thoughtful! 😉
Today was Emily’s baby shower. She is in town for Thanksgiving. It was a lovely day! I cannot believe she is already 30 weeks and due in two short months. She told me she was pregnant the day of my baby shower, and she was only 8 weeks then! Where does the time go? I took Hayden and everyone thought he looked just like me. Yessss! In your face, John! 😛
Random: Have you seen The Illusionist? It’s a movie that is out on dvd now. We watched it last weekend and it is fantastic. See it. Do it.
