Best laid plans

The best laid plans. This is my first week back at work, and even though the office is nice, this change is stressful. And even though J loves his school, that has been stressful.

But it all came to a head this morning. Last night in the middle of the night J woke me up with headache/ear pain. He's never had an ear infection. He took some fever reducer and went to sleep. Then this morning he was just not himself, not moving around much, looking and acting sick. So I decided not to take him to school, but I thought we could stop by my work for a minute while I tried to get him a doctors appt.
Plan b (or c) happened after he threw up all over me (in dry clean only clothes) this morning. I decided we were both going to the pediatrician's office. He threw up in the car, so we both smelled just lovely at the doctors. She thinks he has strep, which is what I thought when I decided to bring him in. Now after waiting in line at the pharmacy forever, we have medicine that he won't take. I'm seriously losing my mind a little. :(
Not loving this aspect of his school. It's been less than 2 weeks and he's been pretty sick twice already. I've been sick, had bronchitis all week. It's hard to concentrate on learning anything new when you can't breathe. And scrapping has really been pretty far from my mind at the moment. But in the past week I have had two projects on the American crafts blog--a beach layout and a beach mini album. Here is a glimpse of the album:
Isn't that camera the cutest thing? Love that. I've used my AC slick writer pen in black all week to label stuff because it is smear proof, waterproof, permanent and quick drying. And unlike a Sharpie, I can actually read my handwriting with one. :) Happy weekend to you, hope your's is better than mine! Until tomorrow.

Oh man, hope he's feeling better soon. Those first days of school/child care can be so trying-hang in there!

I still haven't figured out how to reply in my own blog to comments, so I'm coming over here!! We live down in the Dumfries area of NoVA, just north of Quantico. You're further up closer to DC, right?

Oh, I am so sorry. I hope J is on the mend..and you too. It takes awhile to get all those germ antibodies built up so that you both don't catch every thing in the air. I know you know that, but living it is way more difficult. Hang in there. This too shall pass. Hugs, germ free!

Oh sweetie, I am so sorry you and J have been sick. Hope he is feeling better real soon. The immunities will build up, it just takes time. I was soooo sick when I first started teaching. Hang in there girl! I am sending some prayers your way.
