Our day started off rocky. I was up all night with Spencer. Coughing fits, ear-aches, asthma- I got him back to the doctor today and just as we expected, another double ear infection. His left ear is pretty severe. The doctor doubts his infection from a few weeks ago completely cleared up. I hate for him to miss school so early in the year--and he has to miss PICTURE DAY-- but I gotta get my little man well!
And on an "up" note, we booked our cruise to Alaska for next summer. It's an extended family vacation so lots and lots of us will be going. I can't wait! I think I enjoy the planning and the anticipation as much as the vacation itself! Spencer (aka Mr. Discovery Channel) is already picking out his excursions!
As expected, the dance class is kicking my ass. I "spun" wrong on my leg tonight during the hip hop segment and put a huge contusion on my shin. oooh PURDY! I bruise like ripe banana to begin with so this should be really nice by tomorrow. But whatever, it counts as exercise, right?
Work was great, I think I'm going to like my new project--and it looks like I am partnered with a friend from an old team--it should be fun! See right now, while I am ramping up on my new project and it is easy, I'm all smiles....haha.
Our plans for the trip to Atlanta this weekend have been cancelled. With Hanna threatening our area, it looks like a good idea to stay close to home anyway!
Spencer and I have been reading the Tale of Despereaux for the past week or so. I read a couple of chapters to him each night. There are parts of the book that are quite dark and depressing-- Spencer even had a bad dream about it! I need to hurry up and get to the heroic/good part so he can stop thinking about the sad stuff in the book! Despereaux is supposed to be coming out in a movie sometime later this year. I hope the movie isn't as sad as the book!
