Some thoughts this Tuesday

A plague has taken over my house.  Lee is sick.  Cooper is sick.  I am sick.  We have all been sick for over 2 weeks now.  Lee and I have some kind of upper respiratory horribleness.  Cooper has an ear infection.  His first one.  The ONLY symptom of which was a runny nose.  How am I supposed to know that means an ear infection?!  Mom fail.  And to top it off, on day 9 of amoxicillin (yesterday), he broke out in a head to toe rash.  So I guess he is allergic.  Luckily we were already back at the dr office when I noticed it.

My phone is dying.   I have an iPhone, not the 4 but whatever was before that.  The battery barely lasts until 9pm.  If I use it a lot during the day, to do important things like check twitter 3203573 times, then it will barely last until 5pm.  This morning, I unplugged it at 6:15am, did not use it, and when I looked at it when I got to work, at 7:30, it was already down to 88%.  And I hadn’t even looked at it!  The screen freezes for a few seconds before it will do anything.  I’ve had it for 2 years, and I don’t feel like it should be dying already.  I guess I’m just going to have to get the 5 whenever that comes out :)

Today, it will be 98 outside, and Thursday, it will be 66.  No wonder everyone is sick. 

I can’t decide what Cooper should be for Halloween.  I feel like nothing will ever be as cute as his scarecrow costume last year.  He was freaking adorable.  Also, are we supposed to take him trick-or-treating this year?  He’s only 15 months, so probably not, but how fun would that be?  Not for him, but for me because I would get so much candy ;)  Ohhh, that makes me think, we will actually HAVE trick-or-treaters this year because of our new neighborhood!  Yay fun!

I have pinned SO many things on Pinterest for fall/Halloween décor.  I really want to do some of them (most are DIY) but I don’t have the time to do many, if any at all. I have a bunch of DIY craft stuff I’m already doing for various things!  This is a giant dilemma in my life right now.  Seriously, I think about it daily.  Specifically a wreath, and milk carton ghosts.  I need to get a life.

I can’t believe I just wrote a paragraph on my Pinterest dilemma. 

I am super excited for fall tv.  I just started listing my DVR list of definites and maybes.  Then it got long and I got embarrassed and though about reconsidering the amount of tv I watch.  So I will just say that the one new show I’m hoping is good is Up All Night with Christina Applegate about being new parents.  It looks really finny!   What is YOUR favorite fall show?

no- seriously- how were you supposed to know it was an ear infection? A had a runny nose last week but it went away after a couple days so I hope that waas that. OMG- and I need to get my list going for fall tv. Last year I had list bc some were on at the same time and I would have to find the same show taping later to get them all in. It was quite a hassle with DVR. It really should be able to tape more than 2 shows at once. That show with Christina ...I hope its good too. I was thinking it could be great or it could really annoy me with fake sh*t. I dont know how YOU WILL TOP COOP's costume from last year!! YOU BEST GET THINKING0 get on Pinterest and that will tell you what to do, right? :)

I am so eager for Up All Night! It got really good reviews. However I am terrified that I will just end up in tears the whole time because it will hit too close to home LOL! I want to dress B Jr up for Halloween, but am just not sure I can justify it this year since he won't even be 2 months old yet.

Found your blog through Katie's and loved reading your stories about Cooper. I'm a new mom too, so fingers crossed for no ear infections at our house. Hope everyone feels better soon!

Ear infections are SO sneaky like that! Ugh.

You should def take coop trick or treating! Even if its just to a few houses! We took M last year and she loved it. Well when she wasn't terrified of the neighbors! Ha but we did some roll playing at home with Reese's cups and she loved that!!
