Saturday updates

Yes, I’ve been missing since Tuesday.

The day when Pookah got sick.

Well, I guess he had been sick all along, but Tuesday, the fever arrived, we confirmed an ear infection and possible strep throat. 

He. Has. Been. Miserable.

And since the baby is miserable, who else is???

Mommy is miserable.

It’s been a long sleep deprived week folks.

Since the fever was raging, I couldn’t take Pookah to daycare.


That meant that after working all night, I had to come home and deal with/be awake with/amuse Pookah.

Not my idea of fun.

I am so sleep deprived that it’s dangerous.

I don’t know how I did it.

He seems to be getting better, but the diarrhea from the antibiotic is KILLING ME!!!

He’s sleeping better, down to waking up only twice a night vs the 5 times a night we had at the beginning of the week.

Of course, he has decided he doesn’t want to eat solid foods.



I give up for now.

In other news,

I ordered my Christmas present to myself.

And no, it’s not a nook or kindle.  It seems someone is getting me one or the other for Christmas……

I ordered myself a Kitchen Aid Mixer. 


I have been wanting one of these lovely beauties for the past 3 years.  I got it in Gloss Cinnamon.  It’s a lovely brick red color! I finally have the means to get one……..QVC baby!!! 6 easy payments! yes, it draws it out, but for someone who is trying to stay on budget and not use credit cards, it’s a dream.

And I’m going to do my Christmas shopping this weekend……online.

I’m still planning our trip to DC to go to the wedding that I’m not a bridesmaid in anymore, but now I am reading a poem.  No special dress required.

Oh, and it’s been a MONTH since I loc’d my hair!!! I’ll try to post an updated photo soon! 

Well, that’s all for now. I’m up typing this at 5 am.  It’s the only time I have to myself!

Happy Saturday folks!!! Have a great weekend!

    Man those Kitchen Aid appliances make you want to get in the kitchen, so shiny and pretty. Merry Christmas to you! I hope Pookah feels better, it’s just so hard when they can’t tell you what’s wrong. I hope you can get some sleep soon…the good uninterrupted kind. Have a good weekend!
