So, yesterday was supposed to be Annde's second field trip for school this year. She missed the first one with a raging case of double pink eye. We had high hopes for this one - Dad specifically flew home a day early to take Annde on this field trip to the Bowling Alley, where the kids were going to bowl and have their valentines party. We were all so excited!
Instead, we took a family trip to the ER: Annde spiked a 104 fever at lunch and started to complain her chest/side/stomach was really hurting. So, off we went and after several hours involving the trauma of putting in an IV (which Annde REALLY REALLY did well at... seriously! She did better than I do!!) and chest x-rays... we found out she has pneumonia and severe dehydration. She sucked down 750mL in her arm - we told her that her arm was thirsty and she did really good with it - and 2 purple popsicles that the Dr. gave her... Boy! Annde, really knows how to miss field trips, eh?!? Needless to say, our sleep last night was limited by getting up to give medicine for the fever and the nosebleed at 2am. Sigh! Hopefully, she feels better today so we can still enjoy the holiday tomorrow!
And, just for fun, here's another layout I did a couple of nights ago. I used Becky's Sketch from PageMaps and tipped it on it's side... You can see the original sketch HERE. Then, I combined it with a journaling challenge from One Little Word, for using the word FUN on a layout. The journaling is (since it's sooo small on the layout):
With my job in jeopardy of disappearing into this crappy economy, getting up to go to work each day has become difficult. I don't look forward to the 1/2 empty parking lot, the constant tension and fear coursing through the hallways... I stress out when I think about missing paychecks through layoff periods. But - I have to remember that I HAVE a job still, I work with great people, & I'm good at my job... I need to look deeply into myself, release the fear and anxiety because it won't change anything. I need to find the fun in my career again... cuz there aren't many options out there for a change.
And on that perky note - HA! - I'm off to work for a couple of hours...
