Chris was in a car accident on Wed. and our poor little Fit is likely totaled. he had just dropped Jude off at school (thank god) and was going with the speed of traffic on I25 when some crazy gina slammed into him from behind going like 90 mph. i am so, so thankful that Chis is ok, but for real - who does that? how can you be just flying down a 4 lane interstate during rush hour and not see an orange car directly in front of you? why do you have a license? what is your malfunction?
Jude is sick again :(
i finally had a meltdown yesterday morning, when i couldn’t keep it together anymore. luckily, it was right before i had to leave for work, when i was already late. work, baby, accident, paperwork, bills, etc., etc., etc. nothing was working, nothing was right, nothing fit, nothing was going the way it was supposed to go…it was a really special moment. well, few moments.
but i’ve pulled it together today…for now…with the help of retail therapy.
i did some shopping this morning and got some work appropriate clothes that fit (PSA: everything already on sale at J. Crew is an extra 50% off) and new glasses and extra cheesy popcorn.
and now i’m going to write some code so that hopefully i’ll feel more confident on Monday than i did on Friday.
midway through week 2 at my new job. i’m only working three days a week through July and so far, so good. the first project they have me starting on is a great one for me and i’m excited to show them what i can do!
he’s been sleeping so well and growing so fast (already too long for his bassinet!) that we moved Jude to his crib over the weekend. last night he slept from 8:30 pm to 5 am. once again, this kid proves he is the best.
but he’s the best with a little cold. stuffy nose and snot but no fever and it’s not affecting his sleep or eating, so we’re as far as his first “sickness” goes, not bad.
i had today off and spent 2 hours at the Social Security office to correct what should have been a non-issue save for the stupid hospital. kill me.
i also went to the gym for the first time in maybe 13 months today. kill me again.
i’m having a hard time knowing what to wear to work. it’s been ages since i’ve had to dress even moderately professionally and though it’s summer and my team definitely leans more towards the casual side of NREL’s business casual policy, i don’t want to go 100% slug just yet. i also don’t want to stick out by being overdressed so today i bought non-flipflop, non-heeled sandals in an attempt to bridge the gap. cool story, bro.
we’re going to a concert this weekend and i’ve been anxious about finding a babysitter for Jude. after considering all of these options and websites like care.com and sittercity, i decided just to ask one of Jude’s teachers if she would watch him. she said yes - huge relief - and then Chris told me that i asked her for the wrong night. whoops.
i don’t know if i’ve mentioned this, but Jude has to have physical therapy because he prefers one side to the other and the doc wants to make sure he has a full range of (head and neck) motion and all that. i was kind of freaked out when she first said this a few weeks ago, but we have been doing stretches and exercises and he is really just fine. he can look and turn to the weaker side, he just chooses not to because he is stubborn (or maybe i’m projecting). doc says that all infants initially prefer one side, Jude just needs some help to get as comfortable with the other side. i set up his first PT appointment today. has anyone else had a kid with infant torticollis?
