Blog Slacker

why do i feel such anxiety when i haven't blogged in too long? it's not my job. i'm fully aware that there aren't hundreds of readers out there awaiting my next posting. i have plenty of other stuff on my plate so i'm certainly not bored. i'm not really sure what it is. i'm 99% sure it's a personality flaw or simply my ocd. yeah, it's def one of those. I know that I have boatloads of pics to get posted so there will surely be lots and lots of updates coming soon, promise.

now for the excuses. more for myself than for the tens of people who will read this. i'm exhausted. Noah was sick all last week, work has been crazy busy and well, football started, and then I came down with whatever Noah has. More than a week later and we're both on the mend but fighting the lagging cough. This past weekend kicked off t-ball so there's another thing.

there are some exciting/scary/promising decisions being made in our family right now that I'm not really ready to blog about but hopefully I'll be able to in the next month or so. sorry, i'm fully aware that was annoying. it's like, i have a secret...oh i can't tell you. annoying yes. sorry again.

God, I hate when my kids are sick. As toddlers, it's horrible but as babies it's just downright scary. They can't tell you where it hurts or how bad it hurts, they just want to be held but then they scream in your arms just as easily, and you can't really do much when it's a viral thing. I subscribe to the "let's just give him antibiotics just in case" theory...unfortunately/fortunately, the boys' doctor does not. So it's a waiting game I suppose. A couple weeks ago Noah started coughing and having eye and nose boogers pretty steadily. The dreaded nose bulb was doing nothing and his coughing and wheezing was getting worse so I took him to the doctor Monday afternoon of last weekend. Bronchiolitis was the conclusion and breathing treatments were prescribed. We had a nebulizer from when Connor had RSV so that was fortunate I suppose.

Noah stayed home all week last week until we finally got him back to school on Friday. The other thing that really sucks about your kids being sick is having to stay home from work. Since I used all my vacation time when he was born, anytime I'm not at work I'm not getting paid. Ouch. For that reason, Jeffrey is typically the one to stay home because the Dbacks have amazing PTO and flexibility. Luckily, I can do a good amount of my work from home so when I stayed home with his this week I was able to get a lot done.

Well, that's about it for this random posting. I'm going to work on getting some pics posted today as well but no promises. I have a lot to post so prepare yourselves!

I know how you feel. I am WAY behind on blogging and I don't even have a newborn or a kid with extra curricular activities. Don't feel guilty! You have a lot on your plate - you are a rockstar! Feel better!

I hate when the little ones are sick. :( Hope you both feel better.
PS. I can't wait to hear the secret! I love a good secret. ;)
