Dammit Monday!

I take my son to school this morning and he was fine. He calls me from his first class at 7:50am and tells me he has a headache. I told him to drink some water and keep me posted.

I get to the couples on time at 10am. I am about to walk in their door when the school phone number pops up on my phone. I answer since he had called earlier and you never know what could happen. It’s my son telling me he’s sick and he wants to throw up. Note that I thought he just didn’t want to deal with school when he had a headache but I reluctantly agree to come get him as soon as I can. I get the wife into her car after waiting for their caregiver to help her get dressed and drive her to her dentist arriving miraculously on time. After making sure she gets inside okay, I go to my sons school to pick him up. I walk in and he’s not there at the front and since they have NO school nurse, i had to deal with the front desk. I filled out the correct papers to be able to remove him from school property and another student went to get him. He comes down the stairs a few long minutes later and is white as a sheet. I feel his forehead which seems a bit clammy and put him in the wife’s car and drive him home. I grab a bottle of water, use the restroom (might as well since I’m at home), and have him take his temperature.

OMG it’s 101.1! Wasn’t this kid JUST sick a few weeks ago??? Geez! So I get him in bed and head back to the wife of the couple dentist office. She was still in the room with the dentist thankfully and was finished about 10 minutes later. I told her about my son and she was very understanding that I needed to get her home and take him to the doctor. We stopped at the bank because the husband said he needed cash and I was finally able to take her home. I told the husband when we got there that I would get her car inspected this coming Thursday when I will be there anyway for grocery shopping and he asks, “You can’t come back before then?” Here’s my thought: Well, let’s see, kid with a fever today and probably tomorrow. Also tomorrow I have my cpa coming to give me my tax forms to sign, meet with the clock company that fixed my mom’s clock and pay them when they reinstall it, and then also take you guys to dinner. Wednesday I have to see my dentist and podiatrist so NO! Now you guys know I didn’t say any of this but I SO wanted to! My kid is more important than a car inspection that isn’t even due yet! And more important than the couple are to me so yeah, I’ll be taking care of him.

So now I’m home. His doctors office said there are no appointments available but we can walk in. I really look forward to sitting there for who knows how long for him to see a doctor. The only reason I am is because headache, stomach ache, and fever all together sounds pretty bad to me. I won’t look it up on Google because I’m sure it will say he’s dying or has some incurable disease. And I don’t want to take him to urgent care because I don’t think this is life threatening and I try to never go to urgent care unless it is.

My son is asleep. I woke him when I got back and he just said UUhhhh and rolled over. I will give him another hour to sleep and then I have to take him in. He’s never sick and has already been sick once this year so I’m a bit worried.

I hope you guys are having a good day. I hope it’s nothing serious and we can relax soon!

Lovely

He’s still sick. 101.7 this morning. No school obviously. BFF’s son is sick too. I know there are lots of people that are sick right now, I feel for anyone that is! It sucks!

Then Eliza got in my room and decided to lay down against my butt like Amber does.

I’m off to the store this morning to get orange juice, soup, and more bananas for the sick child.

I went WAY over my calories yesterday (by 1000) and today I weigh a pound less. I was expecting 3 pounds more! At 11:45pm, I saw that I needed 15 minutes of exercise to finish my exercise ring on my watch and decided to do it. I walked around in my patio until I was done. Something must be working! I am determined. I went over so much because I kept eating the awesome cheese crackers I made. 3 are 200 calories!

So I got an award on my watch. I have mentioned before how helpful I find them!

Today is weight day. This guy at the front desk wants me to try a HIIT weight class. Not today I think. I’m too worried that I may have to leave the gym fast if my son needs me. I think it’s rude to walk out of a class in the middle. I hated doing it in college too so it’s just me. If I’m on the machines, I can drop it and run if necessary. I will be going to the gym though.

So gym and groceries, just like on Saturday. At least this time it won’t cost me $100! I only need sick child stuff, not regular weekly stuff. I was up until after 2 watching 50’s commercials on YouTube. Wow they were so different then now!

As for my business, it’s another slow week here. I just found out on Friday that my resume is not on my current computer. That’s frustrating. I have to find my old computer, plug it in, and see if I can still use it to print that out and make changes to it. I got a new one because the old one was crapping out on me. Then again, I don’t want a full time office job so maybe I should not have a resume. My friend that works at HEB said she didn’t give them hers because she wanted the job, she didn’t want to be told she was overqualified. I don’t know yet, whatever God wants to happen will happen.

I hope everyone on here has a great week. Sick child, allergies, and mother to deal with here. 🙄
