I've Never.....

Remember that game...... ;-)

I'm on a quest to do new things! Not quite a bucket list, just want to broaden my horizons.

Last night was date night. Went to dinner and a concert. I wanted to go out for sushi. The place we decided on ended up having a long wait and Ryan does not like to wait! We ended up going to Maggiono's, which we haven't been to the new one in the domain. We then saw my fav band Blue October at the new Austin City Limits Live theater. It was pretty nice. Unfortunately the sears are made for skinny as bitches. And I am not that!

I want to do the haunted ghost tours of Austin, take the boys to a zoo, maybe hike some new trails... Please give me some more inexpensive ideas! Summer vacation starts in 4 weeks. :-)

I'm sitting in the ER right now with my baby Ethan. This poor little guy has a 101 fever. And since he just under 3 months I was told by the on call pedi to bring him in.

So far he was weighed at 14 pounds and 14 ounces! So he is well fed.
There is no AC due to construction and feels like a damn sauna.
Took four nurses and three attempts to get an IV and enough blood.
They did a catheter and he can store a lot of urine in his bladder.
He LOVES medicine. Sugary flavored goodness.
Excellent oxygen levels.
Going to be a thumb sucker even though I am pushing the paci.
Still has a fever. :-(. Makes me sad. Trying not to shed any tears and to be strong for my brave little boy.

I cannot count the ER trips I have made in the last two years. I have simply lost count. And not just for the boys. It seems that having kids makes all Emergency related things happen on holidays or after hours.

I find out lab results in an hour.

sleep deprived.

I told several people at work today how Ethan slept through the night and how wonderful it was. Putting him to bed I kept falling asleep while nursing. So, I asked Ryan to give him a bottle. That is the last thing I remember.

This afternoon when telling my Grammie about it Ryan mentioned how he brought Ethan to me and I fed him at midnight and put him to bed! Crazy! I guess it still counts because I slept through the night even if Ethan did not.

A few OT side notes:

Just finished The Hunger Games. First time to finished a book in 6 months
My whole reason for going to Walmart was to get plastic Easter eggs (sold out!) and paper plates (forgot). Pointless. Yet I still managed to spend $91. Bust.
I have the cutest boys
Recently bought plane tickets to Seattle in sept for my cuz's wedding!!
Flat tire= brand new tire
Happy good friday
Happy Easter

Forget the bunny, remember the lamb. I have my joy and family because he died for me.

I would not be shocked if Donald Trump turned out to be the anti-Christ!
