Several of you have emailed me, wanting to know if I’m feeling better. Thank you for your concern. I’m doing better. I had a slight headache last night, and woke up with it again this morning (nothing near the monster I had last week!) — but I know that’s from the crazy roller coaster temperatures (good grief, what’s with this weather!?) we’ve been having (hooray for full term insurance [sic]) and the lack of sleep from last night. Jessie is sick, so I was up most of the night with her. :(
This morning I went to check on her before leaving for work. Poor thing was crouping/coughing all night and could barely speak. She had a temperature and was having a hard time keeping the medicine down when I gave it to her. At one point she asked if I was going to stay home with her. I told her that I couldn’t, that I was about to have to go to work. She grabs my arm and says in a weak voice, “But I want YOU to stay with me!”
That broke my heart. :(
I’ve been uber-busy this morning and luckily don’t have anything pressing to attend to this afternoon, so I’ll most likely head home after lunch. Her favorite thing to eat when she’s sick is egg-drop soup, so I’ll probably stop by our favorite local Chinese place and pick up a couple ‘to go’ containers.
In other matters, I’ve applied for a CTL (Community Team Leader) position at Soldiers’ Angels. Hopefully I’ll hear back from them within the next few days. Everyone at SA has been really great at answering all my questions and has made the whole process seem a lot less overwhelming than I initially thought.
There are tons of other things I want to share, but am a little short on time and have a sick little one who’s been asking for me. Hopefully I can catch up one evening this week, (heh, my desktop is FULL of shortcuts to articles and things of interest that I’ve been dying to comment on!) but for now this will do.
