As you all know I have been dealing with a mystery fever with Jeff for the last couple of days. Ugh! Yesterday was horrendous for us. He was fussy all night long and did not fall asleep until between 1-2 am then was up at 4:30am to see dad. So that meant that I had to be up too because M is getting ready for work and can not keep an eye on Jeff all the time and to add misery Jeff was not feeling well and wanted to be held and was whining. I got up and had a migraine because of lack of sleep. Jeff was up until about this time yesterday morning because I could not get him back to sleep. Finally he crashed out on me and then I crashed out.
I hate when my kid is sick. I feel bad because I can only do so much. Well, there were no other symptoms what so ever. No runny nose, no cough, no nothing to give me any clue as to what was going on and just like that yesterday the fever was gone and last night he was back to himself again! I am of course keeping a close eye on him today to make sure we do not have a repeat, but when he went to sleep last night he was normal temperature and he is fine this morning. (I just checked to be sure! 🙂 )
We did have mayo chicken last night and I will get around to actually posting the recipe in the food blog soon. I know it sounds gross. I am not a huge fan of mayo at all. On certain things, sure but on chicken?! It is so good! I took a recipe from Hellman’s and changed it. Okay turned it upside down and in side out and made it mine. Oh man am I starving now! I usually skip breakfast because Jeff and I sometimes do not wake up until 10 am and then by the time the brain has engaged and I am functional, it is like lunch time. I am trying to make more of an effort to eat breakfast lately. M got me some bagels, which I love! When Jeff is sleeping I have time to make something to eat, but if he is awake, I have enough time to throw a bagel in the toaster, get his bottle and slap some butter or peanut butter on the bagel and get back to him before he starts crying!
If he is sleeping I can make eggs and a bagel. Depending on what I want. I am still recovering from yesterday. I had a horrible migraine and it stormed to top it off. ugh. I think while he is sleeping right now I am going to go grab something to eat!
I normally do not do more than one post per day but once in a while I like to get all rebel and break the rules! So, an update on the food stamp front, I think the day I did my entry ( you can find it here if you missed it) This really nice lady called from the food stamp office and we had the interview right on the phone! It was like a day or two after I filled out the application on line. So the good news is that she did not out right tell me that we do not qualify. I am in the verification part now. I have a few forms to get filled out, some stuff to print out, a couple of copies to make and the doctor to talk to on the 1st.
Speaking of the doctor appointment, I got a reminder phone call from them today. How cool is that? I am making a list of the questions I need to ask. Especially about meds for my migraines and asthma. I have noticed that I am wheezing when I am sleeping, this is not good. I am not especially looking forward to this doctor visit but it needs to happen and I can not cancel. Ugh.
Jeff is getting hot again. He finally passed out a bit ago. He had about a 45 minute nap all day and that is so not like him at all! All he wanted to do was lay on me. Which is so not like him. M put him on the floor to crawl around, which when he is feeling good, he absolutely loves to do! He did not want to tonight. He just wanted to chill on mom. I actually managed to get dinner done tonight, it was a crock pot meal, so that was helpful. Trying to decide what to make for dinner tomorrow in case he is not feeling well. I have a recipe called Mayo Chicken that is a 30 minute meal. I might do that and have M put the chicken in some cold water in the morning to defrost before he leaves so when we get up it will be defrosted or almost defrosted.
This is a rent week, so no Domino’s or anything like that. Sigh. I wish. But rent is first as always. I have some news about M’s knees but that will have to wait for another time until I know what is going on for sure with all this mess. Sigh. I am so over it all! Next week is the electric bill and the washer and dryer bill and food. Hopefully I will have all the things I need to send in for food stamps done soon so they can put it into the system and we can find out the outcome! I started a new grocery list because we are out of a few things and as I see what else we need it goes on the list. I honestly wish we had the money for a cab for my doctor appointment, but there is no way possible. Ugh. The hardest part is getting to the bus stop and home again. I always have a hard time and my asthma is worst because there was a time when I would not have any kind of issues with it, but now I am having all kinds of issues. Sigh. Well, I need to run and make sure my son is okay and lay down finally.
