So Zeke is sick.  Again.  The third ear infection that he has had in as many months.  As well as the third vomit-diarrhea-fever-no sleep sickness that he has had in as many months.

If breastfeeding supposedly builds up an immune system I would really hate to see how he would have faired with a bottle and formula.  I mean…COME ON!

Conan and I have taken turns taking sick time at work to stay at home with him.  He is more pitiful with this go round than I have seen him, sleeping at weird times of the day on top of us while we scroll through old tivo-ed shows and watch the Ellen Degeneres Show or Oprah or some such nonsense in the middle of the day.

Technically I have ten sick days a year.  I am sure I have burned through those, but luckily I work with a fairly lenient bunch at the church.  So that hasn’t yet turned into a real problem.

I just so want spring to arrive so that some of these germs burn off and we can get back to a normal routine.

Whatever that might be.  Since the middle of January I have had one full weekend off.  And it doesn’t look like I will get another one off in the foreseeable future, what with Sandy working or going to a concert or running a marathon on top of church activities and travel.  I. just. want. a. vacation.  Or one day off without the constant need of a child.  Or even one full night of sleep–I haven’t had one of those for over a year and a half.

Conan is upstairs trying to get Zeke to go to sleep.  We are both at the end of a very frayed rope.  Dangling.

It ain’t good here at the sidewhites residence these days.
