The Best Medicine

So far, the six weeks of 2010 have felt like one big, long ear infection. 

I am so sick of ear infections, antibiotics, doctor visits, long nights with a screaming baby, and sitting in the rocking chair all. day. long.

We're five days into our current course of antibiotics, and Max is still running a fever at least part of every day, and his lungs creak and rattle when he breathes.  I keep hoping it will go away, but expect that we will be back to the doctor soon. I think we're paying someone's salary at my pediatrician's office once copay at a time.  Doing our part to stimulate the economy and all that.

But today was a good day anyway.

I finally got that haircut.  Turns out I do have a pair of eyes hiding under all my bad hair.

My good friend sent me a surprise box of chocolate covered strawberries and cherries in the mail today for Valentine's Day.  I love getting mail.  Getting a box full of fancy chocolates is one of the best surprises ever.

And yesterday my husband came home with a Massage Envy giftcard for me, and he had already set the appointment for this afternoon.  Bless him.

So this afternoon, after a haircut, massage and significant amounts of chocolate, I finally started to feel like a person again instead of just a tired mommy.

And you know what?  It feels good. 

(And now, I just need to figure out how to swing another massage without suffering through six weeks of ear infections...)


  1. Bless your heart. We've had the creepin' crud zip thru our family the past two weeks too. Miserable.
    We're feeling better, tho, so I hope you all are on the mend soon.
    I'm with you on the haircut...I always feel like a new woman afterwards!
    Hang in there Momma!
    THanks for your kind comment on my blog!
    Happy Valentines Day!

  2. So happy for you & your haircut/massage/chocolate. What a triple joy!

    Here's to no more ear infections and health on the horizon for all!

  3. That sounds like a fab day! Good for you! I hope the ear infections die and go away. Yuck.

  4. did you make a standing appointment at the massage place? you may need to :)
