A few Thursday things

Cooper has pneumonia.  Yes, my child, who has never had so much as a runny nose until a week ago, has pneumonia.  Luckily, the doctor said that it is in the very early stages, so we caught it early.  That’s what happens when you take your baby to the doctor 3 times in 10 days.  Also, have any of you with babies ever had to have a chest x-ray done on them? Oh.my.gawd.  It looks like a torture device.  Even the doctor warned me about it before I took him in.  Super sad face.  He did well though, only a little crying.  I would have been screaming.  And I’m almost 30.

I should feel lucky that this is the first time he’s gotten sick, but seriously?  This is what he has to deal with the first time he’s sick?  Poor baby.

I’ve been putting off making Cooper’s baby book.  I wanted to do a completely digital on and print it out into a book on one of those millions of websites.  But, now I’m thinking I want to do a regular one so that I can put in some things of his, like hospital bracelet, footprints, his birth announcement in the newspaper, etc.  So now I don’t know what to do.

Speaking of scrapbooking, I am SO SO mad at myself.  Several months ago, we had a garage sale where we sold a TON of stuff.  Including ALL of my crafting supplies that I had purchased and collected over 10 years.  I had so much stuff.  And I rarely used it due to lack of time and space.  And I hate clutter, so in a moment of insanity, I sold it all in the garage sale.  What on earth was I thinking?!  Especially now that I have a child, I need my craft supplies more than ever.  I’ve been running around buying things for the second time.  Awesome.

Luckily in the new house, I will have a craft room :)

Speaking of the new house, I have pictures!  I need to post them.  I’ve been hesitant to post them in case something were to happen between now and closing, but I think I’m going to do it anyway.  If something happens, then you can all cry with me.

I bought a bag of Hershey’s nuggets; the kind with toffee and almonds.  They’re unbelievably good.  I bought them to have one nugget per day after lunch.  I always need something sweet after lunch and dinner.  I often will have a 100 calorie pack of cookies, but they are 3 WW points, and a nugget is 1.5 points and WAY better.  Well, I’m sure you all know what’s coming.  That was a big, fat FAIL.  I ate 7 yesterday, and probably 8 today, because they are sitting in my desk at work, and then I get stressed about something, so then I eat them.  I gave the bag to a co-worker today.  Haha.

I am so happy that tomorrow is Friday!  I hate having to be at work while Cooper is sick, but with being out of town last week, I am so far behind that I just can’t take off.  I’m ready to snuggle with my boy, do some crafting, maybe some packing, and hopefully get to see a good friend who will be in town.

PS selling all my crafting stuff and then buying it back sounds exactly like something I would do!

Poor little babe! :( I'm so sorry he's not feeling well!!

I still have no idea what I want to do with E's pictures. I kind of love the digital books, but then I kind of love having hard copies. Who knows!
