A little of this and that (NaBloWriMo #2)

Here I am on day 2 of NaBloWriMo and I’m still at it…LOL  I’m good at this.  Right now I’m sitting here with Jake watching Pooh’s Heffalump Halloween Movie (for the10th time in 2 days).  It’s not Beetlejuice, though, which is his current favorite, so I’m grateful for that.  It’s almost bedtime and there’s nothing like a movie in the dark to get him ready.  Of course we’ll have to watch a little Tom and Jerry before he actually goes up or there will be no sleeping in the House of Dwire.

I’ve spent a good part of today sitting on my butt (per doctor’s orders) and reading foster parenting and adoption blogs.  I finally went to the doctor yesterday for the coughing and wheezing and the bladder infection.  She said I was  “full of gunk” in my lungs and the nitrites in my urine are off the charts.  Fun.  So I’m on two antibiotics and I’m supposed to rest as much as possible until my chest clears out.  This is at least the 4th time I’ve had pneumonia; I’ve been prone to it ever since I got it from my mother in 2003.  I’ve been trying to stay away from the infertility blogs b/c I’m terrified that I’m going to end up being a secondary infertility blogger before long.  I can’t remember the last time I ovulated or had a period without using Provera.  I have an appointment with Dr. M in a few weeks to discuss this.  Last time we talked about it, she said that if I didn’t start ovulating soon we’d send me to the fertility specialist in the practice to see what’s going on.  I’m nervous, but I really do want another child and it seems this is the way to go.  I’ll write more about it as I know something. I really think it would be good for Jacob to have a sibling.

His surgery is in 6 days and I’m already wigging out about it.  I want it to be over, I don’t want him to have it at all…I’m a wreck.  I know that tonsil surgery isn’t a big deal, really, but this is my baby we’re talking about and I hate to think of him being scared and in pain.  ARGH!!!

On a happy note, I’m almost finished with the first moebius scarf for Christmas.  I think I’ll be starting number 2 tonight.  I can’t wait until they are both done!!

  1. Hi there! I wanted to come say ‘thank you’ for leaving a comment on my blog, but then I read your profile over at ravelry . . .

    You’re in the Zombie Prom Date knitting group?

    I AM *SO* JEALOUS!!

    If I ever have to live in West Hollywood or Kalamazoo, I am SO gonna stalk either the West Hollywood Stitch ‘n Bitchers (Crazy Aunt Purl’s group) or The ZPD group (‘cuz I love Holly Bee a hell of a lot!)

    Anywho, I dunno how you found my blog, but Welcome and thanks for the comment.

  2. Oh, tonsils out is stinky, but it will help! But tough and brave for your little guy! Make it like a super kid party, then come cry to your girl friends, that’s what we are here for.

    For baby kid…trip to build a bear, and frozen popsicle dream aisle.

    For you spending spree at yarn shop, mags and books to look at. Spending does make you feel better, and pretty photos are distracting!

    What’s up April!
