Whirlwind Week

Well, what to my wonder! Today I received an AWESOME box of great BlogHer Swag from Maria Bailey and BSM Media. Ohhhhh guys, there was so much GREAT stuff! And, best part? I have stuff to share with all of you guys too! I'm going to go through everything this weekend and start handing out the goodies next week, so be sure to check back on Monday to see what fun stuff I have to give out!

This whole week has been a whirlwind-Little Dude and I both got colds, Bill was out of town again all week, Eddie cut his eyebrow open on something (do dogs have eyebrows?), JR is having some tummy issues/pains (read cries A LOT), I've been working on Bill's birthday surprise (making a homemade present with kids around should be an Olympic sport), I have tons of people coming over tonight for Bill's birthday party, so I have been desperately trying to keep the house clean while entertaining my in laws, the kids, my sister, and my brother in law. Yes I have had a full house this week!AND on top of all that, I got Mastitis! UGH!

Yesterday my chest was hurting a little, and I was feeling really lethargic and worn out even after a long nap; thank God my mother in law was here, she insisted I sleep-she's awesome! So, after my nap and starting to feel worse, Patty (my awesome in law), had me check my temp-it was 102.3!! So, we called my OBGYN, he confirmed that I have Mastitis and got me on medication. I am feeling a little better, but gosh I still feel like I could sleep for a million years!

So, I am having to pump after feedings to try to make sure the milk empties out and take some heavy duty antibiotics 3 times a day for the next 2 weeks. And sleep. Yes, I am excited to fall asleep tonight; I do hope JR sleeps OK for me tonight....

And I just realized-Happy 8/8/08 day!
