pleasures of pain (killers)

So to continue from my last post which ended abruptly coz' I had to do something, my last few weeks were pretty busy. After thanksgiving, I went to London for a few days, and it was actually a good break for me. Once I got back, and realized that U hadn't forgotten me, I felt much better. She had had a slight fever when I called the day before I was scheduled to return and I was a little scared. The pediatrician said it was teething, but I panicked anyways. She's all happy now, and becoming quite a brat. She's got the most amazing smile, which she doesn't hesitate to use even when she's being bad. Speaking of being bad, her new favorite activity is to play with the recycling bin and take the gallon containers and jars out and toss them on the floor. Sigh!!! Don't call CPS but she got a rap on her wrist when she pulled a gladd jar out yesterday because she just can't be doing that. Of course, when the child proofing people come next week, they'll probably tell us to move the container, duh!!!

So Christmas was a blast. We drove to Long Island and wonders of wonder, there was no traffic and everything was smooth. We chose to drive at night so the baby was asleep for most of it. My cousin S is here and she's a great help with the baby, so all in all the trip was a breeze. Once there, S and I managed to get to the city on the 26th and hit Saks on 26th aka sale day. It was fabulous. I"m off to take another nap. I have what dentists call dry socket. My tooth was extracted on Monday and apparently the hole left behind is not clotting as it should. So it causes immense pain and "dry socket". I"m currently on Percocet which doesn't agree with me, yesterday my boss had to drive me home. O, I'm feeling sick, so signing off.

welcome back to me

It's almost the new year and I thought this would be a good time to post about the last month. It's been busy, oh so busy. First of all, thanksgiving was great, we went out to dinner and no cleanup, no fuss. Then in the middle of December, I had to go to London on a business trip for five days. It was actually fun. One day I got to go to Harrods and it was one of the most ostentatious displays I have ever seen. People were buying 1000 POUNDS worth of stuff...c'mon people, I like shopping as mush as the next person, but so much? Hold up, I'll be back

Good morning, it's my flex day today, so I will be home cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning. I hate cleaning. If I had the option to eliminate one chore from my life, this would be it. The constant cleaning. Anywho....U has learned something new...saying no. She's constantly saying '". I'm sure she learned it from me, from when I'm telling her or the dog no :-) Why am I even surprised. The past weeks have been funny and scary at the same time. She had an ear infection in one ear and one day ran a fever of 101. I got so scared. It's moments like this that one realizes that good fortune can be so fleeting and that you need to treasure every minute. I was so overwhelmed with thoughts about the flu that I couldn't sleep at night. But thank God, it was an ear infection. She's now almost 20 lbs and a teeny bit longer than 27 inches.
The Dr. came home and told me that his boss's daughter who's THREE months younger than U is now 20lbs!!! Since I heard that I've been on a secret campaign to fatten her up. But she's not biting (haha, pun unintended). But overall, it's been good, she's been playing and laughing and having a lot of fun. It snowed one day and we took her out and took pics of her in her first snow. Pic below. She looked so cute!!!
