Day 29: What We've Been Up To

First of all I have to give props to all of the full time single parents out there! I don't know how you do it. I'm on day 29 and am EXHAUSTED! Most nights I fall asleep with Marshall around 8:00 in the evening. It has been so long since I powered up my personal laptop that the battery was completely dead tonight.

The good thing is that we're in the last week of Freddy's little mini-deployment. I'm actually starting the beginnin stages of a sinus infection so I'm hoping it holds out until he returns next week. I've been sucking on cough drops all day and probably should by stock in Kleenex. I can't take anything like Nyquil because it will put me into a coma and then I won't hear Marshall if he wakes up in the middle of the night.

To make matters worse, poor Harley is having problems ith his back legs again. Back in 2008 when he was still a kitten, Harley had some problems with his back legs. It got to the point where he couldn't put any weight on them and the vet never figured out what the problem was. He tested negative for everything the neurologist could think of and then the issue seemed to resolve itself after he was put on steroid pills. Well, 3 years later and no episodes so the vet weaned him off the pills. After a month of no pills all of a sudden he is having problems again. So I've started giving him his pills in the hope that it will help him. If he doesn't show any improvement by next Wednesday, he'll probably have to go back into the vet.

Since I haven't shared any photos in a while I thought I would share my first video of the Marsh. To give a little background, Marshall LOVES the Fresh Beat Band. Nick Jr plays their videos between shows and before their On Demand programming. Whenever one of their songs comes on the TV, Marshall stops what he's doing and dances to the music.

Day 15: Baby's First Evacuation

This morning started off like any other day. I woke up around 5:30 and rushed through my shower and feeding the cats so I could be done before Marshall woke up. This morning he was good and I actually had to wake him up at 6:30 to get ready to go. We left around 6:45 and I dropped him off at daycare around 7:15. Arriving at work around 8:15, I had a new employee start yesterday so I spent my entire morning in a conference room with her training. We had just finished up for the day around noon when my boss peeked in the room and motioned for me to come into his office.

Well, it was my friend, Michelle on his phone. Apparently there was a small electrical fire at Marshall's daycare and they had to evacuate all of the kids. When they couldn't get in touch with me, they called Freddy. When he couldn't get in touch with me he called Michelle, who went over and picked up Marshall.

I spoke with the director of the daycare this evening and no one was hurt, but the location is going to be closed until they can make repairs. As an alternative they are moving the kids over to their other location, which is primarily for the older kids. The good news is that I still have someplace to take him. The bad thing is that my commute is going to suck more since I'll have to take the bus into Hoboken now :(

And to make matters worse I think I'm getting sick...
