March 18 of 31

Sean was 100% back to himself today. I still don't know what was bothering him, but last night he came down with a fever, so I gave him some infant Tempra, he was fed, and went to bed. We stupidly put him to bed too early, and that was our own faults, because he slept his now usual 7-8 hours, but he did it until 2 am. He was up at 2 am to eat, and then around 3 am the two of us fell asleep on the couch for an hour. At 4 am I realized we were both still on the couch, so I put him in his crib, and I finally went back into bed.

Today, Sean's back to himself. Thank you EVERYONE who gave me advice on what to check for or what to do, I really just didn't understand what he was feeling, and I'm sure whatever it was, it's passed... and he's back to himself! I love my son so much, I just wanted to soothe him and make him feel better - you know? But when you don't know why your child is crying - it can be damn frustrating.
Today, I got a LOT of napping done, I've been exhausted.

This afternoon Jamie's mom and her wife came over, to see Sean.

After they left, I worked on some SP10 Participant's page stuff.

Then I got ready, and we went to Madison's for my dad's birthday dinner, which I ate the most delicious pasta with seafood. It was such a huge portion that I have leftovers for lunch tomorrow. So delish! I love seafood.

Tonight upon returning home from the birthday celebartions, I worked on the SP10 Participants page some more. It's done. There are a few names missing, due to the fact that they had broken links, but otherwise they are all uploaded. I've centerized the page, I think it looks great, and each link is on their very own individual line. I had to enter the coding for that in one by one. Also - some of the links have coding to open up in their own window. I've got to finish that tomorrow. I can't sit here any longer. My neck is KILLING me, and I'm beat. Even with napping today, I don't feel 100% fully rested. And since Jamie is working tomorrow, I'm getting up to do the morning feeding, who knows what time Sean will decide to wake up tomorrow morning. I need to finish those links tomorrow, to open in their own window. It was a long and lengthy job, which I thank Excel for helping me with the work (I plugged in names, and links and then used the button that puts everything into alphabetical order once I was done!) Thank goodness for that. It would have been an even LONGER job, had I had to put every name in alphabetical order. Geez - thank goodness not! But at least the list is up - and done with for now, until tomorrow. It's functional, and that's what matters. I was getting way too many emails from people who didn't see their name up - but it clearly had stated that the list was still under construction! If only they took the time to read the notice - but I emailed every last one of those requests for where their blog link was back, and kindly told them to check back by tonight. So I'm sooo happy it's done!

Last night, before I went to bed, I bought some STR..... That's how I spent some of my tax money that I will be getting back in the mail. I'm getting back a wonderful amount this year, 95% of it is going into savings, so that we have either money for a new roof once we replace the roof on our house, or money for new couches for our house, once unfortunately Jazz is no longer with us, since he's the culprit that killed our couches and ripped them to shreds so much that he can actually go INTO the sofa! I'll post the fun colorways I purchased, when I get them in the mail. But let's just say I purchased 6 skeins I think. I got them all in lightweight, and each in a different color that I've been eyeing like you wouldn't believe! All yummy colors, of course!

I'm jonesing to knit. That will have to wait for tomorrow though - I do plan on having some knitting time then! Promised myself!

Yesterday I announced that M.K. in my SP10 Group won contest #1 for posting her questionnaire on time. I will be holding a 2nd contest soon, so stay tuned if you are in my group. I'll be putting together something for the end of the week this week. Just need to figure out what I want to do - and what the prize will be! M.K. won 2 new release movies & a popcorn at Blockbusters. Congrats M.K.!

I'll leave you with this image of Sean, what he wore out tonight, too cute if you ask me:

"Single & Loving It!"

The participants list looks great! You rock. That was a tedious horrible task coupled with general hosting duties. Fantastic job!

Katie said...

Glad to hear the little guy is feeling better... I always get flustered when my daughter starts on a crying jag for what seems like no reason. we usually figure it out a week or two later: Hey, I bet Pooh Bear was... fill in the blank. Hindsight, ya' know. Just once, I'd like some foresight.

Barb said...

I'm glad Sean's feeling better, can't wait too see the STR that you bought :)

Summer said...

I will echo everyone when they say Glad to hear that Sean is feeling better.

Robin said...

Glad Sean is better! You must be so relieved.

I am sure that SP list was a nightmare - great job on it though! I felt so out of it last weekend when I assigned all the matches - I can't imagine doing that AND the participant list. Cast on for a new project - something immediately gratifying, if possible! That always fixes it for me.

Thanks for reminding me that I need to do some sort of contest for my people. Don't know what to do - any ideas? Maybe a meme of some sort. I think Shelby did that last round.

Have a great day!

Wow - he sure is growing fast. Glad he feels better. Hang on tight - My oldest is driving and flirting with her boyfriend. Scary.

Amanda1 said...

I could look at Sean's sweet little face all day!

Can't wait to see pics of the STR yarn... I'll have to live vicariously though you!

He is a handsome young man! Love the new pictures of him. Sorry to hear he was under the weather though.
