I’m Sorry

I keep writing down post ideas, but then I never actually post them. In lieu of actual interesting content, will you accept a list of excuses? I thought not, but here they are anyway.

-I worked 35 hours last week. The next 2 weeks are much better, but they keep scheduling me until 11:30 or midnight. I said less than 30 hours, and no later than 11, but I guess they’re asking everyone to put in more time for the holidays. They appreciate my flexibility. I am looking for something else.

-Apple keeps throwing up in his crib at night. None of our theories thus far has panned out, so I am starting a journal to look for patterns. And living in fear that he will choke on his own vomit, because he doesn’t cry after he throws up, and sometimes we don’t know about it until morning.

-Apple and Raisin have coughs at night too. (Yes, I have considered the possibility that the coughing is related to the throwing-up, but he does not seem to cough to excess right before he throws up, so that is not the whole story.)

-I am not getting much sleep.

-I have developed a caffeine habit, and right now my hands are shaking a teeny bit as I type. That is probably not a good sign.

-My house is a mess, I have masses of vomit-y laundry to do, and I haven’t showered yet today.

Please send tequila. Thank you.

    Tequila leads to more vomit. Trust me.

    But you might want it anyway.

    Everything in moderation-try the tequila, however; taken in moderation it might not lead to desired results. donna g

    Have drunk all the tequila. Am sending empty bottle with dessicated worm in bottom. Sorry?

    As for the night coughing, in our house coughing invariably ends in vomit. Since the Bear was four months old and scared the everloving shit out of me, it’s been a standard fall/winter/spring routine. Cough, cough, puke, clean. Lather, rinse, repeat. Hers is asthma – might be worth a check?

    Sam was puking in bed all of the time around the time he turned one. We had no idea what it was. I was still gicing him a cup of milk right before bed when we were reading stories, and when I told the doc about it, she suggested I switch it for water, see if it’s just a milk curdling/digestion thing. It worked! Now he only pukes when he’s sick. Like today in kindergarten. Fun times.
