A Sick Day

Decided to call in sick today.  Max was up at 1:15 a.m., and just now is taking a nap.  He has three teeth coming in on top, and has been cranky and sad this week.  I just couldn't send him to daycare, and I was exhausted.  So, Max and I are at home today.  Although I told my boss and direct reports I would be out, business still goes on, and I will be on conference calls the rest of the afternoon.  It's hard to truly disconnect from work, even when other things are going on that take priority.

So, instead of working, I am posting to my blog.  How's that for productivity?!

Life has been good.  Busy, but good.  I often feel guilty for not posting more often, but then I remember that I have two major jobs (career and being a mama) on top of other high priorities, and I have to remind myself not to feel bad.  There's just never a free moment.  One thing that I DO need to get better at is commenting... I am checking in on and reading all of your blogs, but just never log in to Blogger to comment (BTW - I HATE Blogger's new layout... sounds like a lot of people feel the same).  I'm sorry.  I will do better at commenting.

TTC #2 is in full speed ahead.  I am on CD13 after 5 days of Clomid.  I am sure hoping that my tubes are still clear from my lap surgery last year, and that I ovulate.  If history repeats itself, I am expecting to ovulate late (maybe around CD20 or so).  We are giving it our all and praying for a second miracle.  Max needs a little sister or brother :)

I'll post again soon - back to my work e-mail...

  1. Don't feel guilty for not posting more often, your first priority is your family and work...we miss hearing from you, but we all know being a parent is a huge juggling act. I'm hoping you get pregnant this month :-) Max will be such a good big brother! Hope you get a nap sometime today!

  2. Poor mama no sleep is the wort! I hope you get a chance to step away from work today and enjoy your sick day!

  3. Teething is so hard!!! Hope you both get some relief soon! I wish it were easier to take a day off for you. So lame that you have to log in even when you're out. So you should be ovulating in a week! What a nice mother's day surprise that would be! I don't know what I'll do with myself when we stop TTC. I wonder how I'd survive, and what life would be like without knowing what CD I'm on. LOL.

  4. I am sorry your little guy is not feeling great! Working while taking care of a sick little guy is not easy! Hope he is feeling better soon! And hope this is your lucky cycle!!

  5. I hope the clomid does the trick this month! Sorry to hear Max wasn't feeling well, Piper's been sick on and off for two weeks now and I changed my work schedule around to be with her yesterday. It's so hard being a working mama and having a sick kiddo :(.

    Praying hard for your #2!
