For starters, my lil man is back to being his normal happy and healthy self! He had pneumonia and an ear infection and after being given a very strong shot last week for the pneumonia, the following day they gave him a 10-day dosing of strong meds to fight the pneumonia and the ear infection. Today is his last dosing of the meds, and the doctor said allow an additional day before returning to daycare. It turns out that his day of rest is a Friday, so he goes back to daycare Monday and I go back to the grind.
He’s been sick a total of three weeks. The first week we’re treating it as a virus. The second week we know what it is and that was the hardest week for me. This third week is just about finishing the meds. He’s had one or two low-grade fevers this week, but I will take that anyday over the high temps his body wouldn’t let go of! Last week, because he was so sick and his body was fighting so hard, he was sleeping like he was an infant again. I’m talking about two naps and still sleeping the whole night. I got a little too used to that, because I would take a nap too. That would mean I was going to bed later. That would mean that I got used to taking these naps and now here I am trying to turn my sleep pattern back around! I’m sleeping like I’m back in college! Too bad that’s not a good thing for me…I have to return to work on the day of a huge transition for my job. So in the past two weeks, whereas I would have been at work, being prepared…I now will be walking into the war zone kinda unarmed. So that’s a doozy on it’s own. March will not be the easiest month, but hopefully, due to being super busy means it will go by super fast.
Alright, so let’s go back a week…The Oscars. First of all, congratulations to Octavia Spencer for winning Best Supporting Actress!!! I just knew that history would be made that night with having two African-American women winning, and one of them being the 2nd ever Best Actress award winner. I was wrong. Meryl Streep one the award. And there’s nothing wrong with that, because Queen Meryl, I mean there are no words for her talent. She is a true movie star and well deserved. But I so wanted it to be Viola Davis. Not this time, but maybe the next time it will be her. I feel she was also robbed of another very deserved award…Best Dressed!
First of all, this gorgeous green is perfect against her skin tone. Truly is an amazing dress! Really, it’s hard to go wrong with Vera Wang. But this dress accentuated her curves, her hard work, her girls are sitting up and looking fab, and I just love the wonderfulness that is this dress. Add to that her stunning makeup and I could care less about going natural, but her hair was perfect as well. I don’t think wearing a wig would make this look any better than it already does. She wins Best Dressed Award for the 2012 Academy Awards according to Aria!
