Ear Infections, Work, Generosity & a Dream

I suppose it’s time to write a post…

Wednesday night seemed normal until she laid down and complained that her ear really hurt.  Okay, that’s not good.  But it’s 9pm.  Some tylenol?  Well that didn’t help.  Google said a warm rag against the ear.  That might have helped get a few hours sleep.  Either that or she was just too exhausted to stay awake any more.

At least she told me it hurt, right?  Before it was … they can’t talk so how am I supposed to know what’s going on.  Now she actually told me.  However, I think she only finally told me when it was pretty bad.  According to the doctor, a severe double ear infection.  Yikes!!!  I guess a week or so ago when she tugged at them a little plus the congestion that’s been in her for about that same amount of time should have been sure signs.

Ear infections plus throwing up that night and again in the car on the way home from the doctor … not a fun day.  And this medicine they gave isn’t really flavored so she’s not a big fan.  Can’t they just throw some bubble gum flavor in there?  I didn’t taste it but the pharmacist told me today it should have an orange flavor.  We’ll see, I guess I’m going to have to try it tonight.

A neighbor, a girl & her dad, stopped by the saturday before Easter with a basket for the kids.  She’s not an immediate neighbor, someone I never met before all this, but they have stopped by a number of times with gifts for the kids.  Very thoughtful!  Thank you!!!

It doesn’t look like I’m going to get that position at my company.  Although I suppose I don’t really care that much.  Another day, another time and I would have been all over it.  Since they company doesn’t know what it wants OR needs, I don’t want to be the one (right now) to make everything better.

I have an idea about how this could all work in my benefit though, so we’ll see.

However, if they refer to my situation, the flexibility they supposedly give me, my loss, my kids, or anything else of that nature … I already have my resignation letter ready.  I CANNOT BELIEVE THEY HAVE THE NERVE TO REFER TO THAT SITUATION IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM!!!

Actually, maybe I should just take some FMLA time.  I’ve been seriously considering it.

I have some much on my list to do.  I don’t think I’ve cleared anything off it.  Maybe one of these days I’ll focus in on what needs to be done.

And I had another dream recently?  Actually that Wednesday night when E hardly slept. 

I don’t know how it happens; can’t predict it and can’t seem to force it to happen, but I’m glad when it does.  Maybe it was the broken sleep that caused it.

For a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a second it seems like things are normal … but then I wake up and it’s my reality again.
