So ... Where have I been? Well, if you MUST know...

Okay --- here's the deal --- I haven't been hiding from all of my dear and loving blog friends. Actually, Hunter has had a bronchial pneumosomethingorother viral infection since 2:00 a.m., Sunday morning, when he woke up with a fever of 104.7 and nearly scared his mommy and daddy to death! Not a good thing! Thank the good Lord for luke warm baths, cold nights, and a doctor who really DOES call you back in the middle of the night -- no mater what the time (even though she may sound somewhat incoherent).

So, I've been busy nursing a sick, cranky, whinny, irritable baby, and today is my first day back to work...Glory to God! So basically, I am THANKFUL to be back at work. I can get a wee bit of blogging done. I can socialize with adults. I can use my brain. And ... (this is a bonus) ... I don't have to wipe buggers out of anyone's nose but mine.

But sadly, all this worky-kind-of-fun must come to an end as the day closes, and I'm now off to go wipe buggers, pat backs, medicate coughs that sound like a barking seal, fill humidifiers, rub vicks vaporub, and generally love a pitiful child. He is doing much, MUCH better now, and while mommy is currently fighting this virus, daddy is strong and healthy (bugger!).

Lesson learned: never share food or drink with a sick baby, no matter HOW LOUD he cries or pitches an all-out temper tantrum.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

Hoping to get back to normal blogging tomorrow. Well, lookie there -- tomorrow is Friday, and I don't blog on the weekends! AND ... we're going away for an ADULT weekend ... wooo hooo ... to a concert in Wheeling WV -- yehaw! Can't wait!

Say it with me: "Adult time. Adult time. Adult time."

I'd send you an energy boost to recharge the batteries, but mine is flat too for similar reasons. Wishing you a peaceful eventless nights sleep.
Cheers

Poor little guy! Caleb scared me to death when he had a 104 fever, too. I hope he's better very soon, and WOOHOO for adult time! We just had a lot of it outselves and I was glad to get back and love on Caleb again.

They don't tell you such things in the "I want to be a mommy" manual, do they??
