Today was another bad day! Last night at dinner our youngest seemed fussy. We took his temp. It was 100.0. Not a fever, but enough to make me go hmm... Could be teething, those two year old molars are coming in! He woke up at 4:30 a.m. fussy, but not warm so I brought him in bed with me. By 6:20 a.m. he was an oven. I walked him in to the bathroom to my hubby who would stay home with him today and apologized since he was already dressed and ready to start a fun filled work day. He had a bunch of stuff going on. This was inconvenient today to say the least! So, we took our little one with his 103 fever downstairs for some Motrin and cuddle time in front of the T.V. and proceeded to make our arrangements for the day. Turns out he has Strep. If you read my Post It Notes last week, I mentioned that I knew it was lurking! Intuition is not often wrong! Luckily, so far our middle son is negative. He is our recurrent Strep child this winter! One more bout and he goes to the ENT! I have a feeling I should schedule the appointment! I went to work while hubby took care of all that business. I had a minor crying fit at my desk at work and then proceeded to go about my workday in a somewhat subdued manner. I then went to an orthopedic appointment, the third opinion on my knee. This proved to be the biggest waste of time in a long time! On the way to the appointment I got lost for 30 minutes (more crying) and when I got there, five minutes late (I hate being late so I always allow plenty of time), the doctor was running 1 1/2 hours behind. I left my appointment 2 hours and 15 minutes after my scheduled appointment time to drive home in rush hour traffic which took 1 hour 15 minutes. All the while thinking that I am going to stick with the local, younger surgeon who takes me only slightly seriously, but knows me very well! But, after putting that to rest, I realized that I would be more excited than I have been any other day in a long time to walk through that door and see my four blessings from above! They are the light of my world and remind me why I do what I do everyday. Unexpected blessings and reminders come at the most appropriate time! Thank God for that reminder today!
P.S. I didn't start my organization today, but that is another reminder from above! It will still be there tomorrow and that is by God's grace!
