Did you hear that? That was us throwing caution to the wind.

Doug had his 6th month appointment yesterday. A few weeks ago, we had Doug tested for allergies, which was so much fun. He has a patch of eczema on his face that hasn't gone away and the doctor wanted to see if it was caused by an allergy. It turns out that it's not. It also turns out that Doug is not allergic to anything! The doctor told us to just "go for it". So, as long as he won't choke on it, he can eat it. Last night Doug had some scrambled eggs. He was a bit put off by the texture, but once he got over it, he liked them.

The Rebel

This was the scene this morning in Doug's room. I have a feeling that this is why we've been woken up several times a night for the past few weeks, he's been trying to roll onto his stomach. I tried to tell him that this was verboten by the AAP, but he would not hear of it. As I write, he is gnawing on a corner of my laptop. I'm pretty sure this isn't covered under the warranty!

Tomorrow, Tomorrow & Tomorrow

Tomorrow I will write in my blog. Tomorrow I will wrap those gifts. Tomorrow I will address those cards and go to the post office to send packages. Tomorrow I will make food for Doug. Tomorrow I will register for yoga. Tomorrow I will go to the lab to get my blood tested. Tomorrow I will send emails. Tomorrow I will visit my grandfather. Tomorrow I will do the laundry. Tomorrow I will make dinner. Tomorrow I will get up at a decent hour. Tomorrow I will take Doug for a walk.

Right now my todays are full of tomorrow. I'm trying to find the balance between too much and too little. It's a fine edge. It's Wednesday and I'm finally starting to get a handle on this week. But, I did get to do some things yesterday, so a small victory there!

So here's to tomorrow!

Still Here

I'm still around. The last week or so has been full of ups and downs. The good news is that the medication goes a long way to getting rid of the daily pain. The bad news is that the fatigue is still around and is at times worse than usual. I feel like I had more things to say, but here are some pictures of the cute.

This morning I was watching the news with Doug. They were discussing the hostage situation yesterday at the Discovery building. Evidently the police had been sweeping the building all night looking for explosive devices (apparently we don't call them bombs anymore). The police told reporters that they had found several packages and 'disrupted' them (evidently we don't 'detonate' things anymore either). I have to say, the whole thing kind of made me laugh. First the mental image of an officer 'disrupting' a package; did he shake it up? tear it open?. And then I realized it was probably some unfortunate employee's lunch, briefcase or backpack and I felt very sorry for that person. Their poor lunch was probably disrupted, but luckily not detonated. The officers were still combing the building at 6 this morning. I really hope all the employees got the day off, I think they deserve it after yesterday.

Enough incoherent ramblings, I'm going back to bed.
