Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea


FireGirl ended up with her first ear infection. She's better now. I'm not.


I caught her "cold". Except it's way more than a cold. And now I feel guilty for not just dropping everything last week and staying home and coddling her every day. 'Cause it sucked.


But we have air conditioning. And air conditioning rocks. Except it got cold again for most of this week.


But even when it's cold out popsicles still rock. Especially when you're sick.


Work's been sucking lately. Which has led to some philosophical thoughts about the "burnout" phenomenon. Which I may blog about. If I can find the time.


I've also had some rather deep thoughts about math. Yep, math. I really should write this stuff down.


Now I want a popsicle. But I'm at work. And there are definitely no popsicles here.


Yes, I usually do my blog at work. I've been told repeatedly that I am a "non-exempt" employee, therefore I must take my full 30 minute lunch, plus two 20-minute breaks (one in the morning, one in the afternoon). I choose to spend mine on the internet.


I've been thinking a lot about sharing my post-partum struggles. Even though it's been nearly three years (holy crap! three years?!?). For several reasons, but one of the primary ones being that I don't think things like that are talked about nearly enough. There's a massive gap in education among the general public regarding post-partum issues.


One of my friends is coming over tomorrow to teach me how to use a drill. It's something I've wanted to learn for a while. Unfortunately with FireGirl being sick, and then me, I've been exhausted, and our house is in worse shape than usual. Which is bad. So I was tempted to cancel. But I'm not. I'll just be embarrassed, I guess.

Have a great weekend!

What do you do for a job that you HAVE to take breaks?

You're correct, Popsicles do rock. And drills are fun too.

Feel better!
