Get ready for the random vomiting of info you didn't know you needed to know and really don't need to know.
1. Little Man was up surprisingly late last night just talking to himself and anyone who'd listen in his bed. Spence and I were watching season six of How I Met Your Mother on dvd when the phone rang at about 8:50, and we immediately hear LM call out in his most cheerful and helpfullest voice, "Phone ringing!!", which of course caused us to laugh our butts off for a good 10 minutes.
Fast forward to this morning and he's just not quite himself. By mid morning he was crying and telling me in his most saddest and desperatest voice, "My ear hurts!" I gave him a dose of Tylanol and but it didn't help, he was in too much pain for the meds we had on hand and it would be a while before one of us could get him to the clinic. After a few hours Spence was able to get home and got him checked out... double ear infection.
Between emotional pain and physical pain, I have to say one of the hardest parts about being a parent is when you can't take the pain away. But hopefully by morning, once he's had a few doses of antibiotics, he'll be feeling better.
2. I feel like I might possibly be falling apart. Between recurring back pain, a weird puffy-eyed allergy thing, and my achy knees, one of which is worse than the other, I may be falling apart. I've had on and off knee problems since I fell in the garage almost a year ago, and right now it's behaving strangely. It doesn't hurt to squat or bend down, it doesn't hurt to kneel, it mostly just hurts to lift my knee up in front of me.
I'm pretty sure that it all does NOT mean that I need to, oh I don't know... exercise more or something. What I'm pretty sure it DOES mean is that I need to take naps and eat more cookies. Which is fabulous timing since it is almost
cookie season Christmas time.
3. This year for Thanksgiving we split it up so that we celebrated with Spencer's family a couple weekends before and with my family on Thanksgiving day. It was fantastic only having one place to go that day! It's just so much easier to enjoy family time when you're not watching a clock so you don't show up at the next place too late. It. Was. Wonderful. I wish Christmas could be the same way, but we have a lot more people to try to see during that holiday so I can't even imagine a time in the nearish future where we only have one place to go to on each day (Christmas eve and Christmas day).
4. We're pretty hooked on How I Met Your Mother and have been waiting a long time to watch season 6 on dvd because during the actual season 6 we were watching seasons 1-5 on dvd. We like to try to figure out who of our friends are each character on the show. I wonder if every group of friends can think of someone who kinda sorta closely resembles each of those characters.
5. If this random post is extra random and the run-on sentences drove you nuts, I apologize. I typed it all while watching Parenthood (the nbc tv show) which is pretty much an awesome show. The only thing that really bugs me is that all the characters seem to have the same "voice". Not sure if that's an acting issue or a writing issue, but I still love the show.
Now if you'll excuse me, we need to go finish the last disc of HIMYM Season 6. And it will most certainly be Legon....wait for it.... Dary!
