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.
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...)
