I got a call from the daycare lady at 3pm telling me Jack was inconsolable and perhaps he didn’t feel well. After phoning Joe to ask him to head to my work, I went to pick Jack up. He was crying when I got there but after he was passed to me and I shhed him a bit, he was sweet and happy as can be. He fussed in the carseat on the way over to my work but was fine as soon as I picked him up to head inside. When Joe arrived, I nursed Jack and sent him off. He fell asleep in the car and was fine until I got home. When he saw me, his arm shot out to reach for me. He is now super clingy and wanting to be with mom! What the heck is going on with the little guy? Perhaps it is because he is still getting over being sick. I dunno. I hope this doesn’t turn into a regular (separation anxiety) occurrence. It’s nice to know he loves me but I need to work…

I think I have a sinus infection. The “migraines” I got Friday and Saturday were actually probably sinus headaches. My eyes and forehead hurt!
Other than this nasty sick stuff, I had a pretty good weekend. Spent all of Saturday with Melissa and Christian playing Super Nintendo while Joe was at work. I had tons of fun playing Super Mario Bros. and just relaxing. We also stopped in at Target to look at carseats. I wanted to check out the seats I was considering, although Joe and I had already pretty much decided to go with the same seat that we already have (Evenflo Triumph). Even though it has some annoying features, it is one of the best-rated by Consumer Reports and we know how to use it. I like the fact that the harness doesn’t have to be rethread with each adjustment and the tightening knob is on the side instead of against the back of the seat. Anyway, Target only had a display model but at least I got to check out the other seats to make sure I really didn’t want them. I ended up ordering a luxury version of our current seat from Amazon on Sunday.
I did not do much yesterday since I was still feeling pretty crappy. I have not been sleeping well (a sore face really messes with me!). I did manage to do a load of laundry and run the dishwasher, so it wasn’t a complete waste of a day. In the evening the fam went over to Jenn and Chris’s place for pizza. We watched some wacky documentary on a Wisconsin “filmmaker.” It was bizarre. It was fun to hang out, though!
Jack is almost completely recovered and has been incredibly jovial and entertaining. I am so relieved! Now if I could just kick whatever I've got!
