Jack is feeling much better. No more fevers, no more rash. And ever since he recovered, he has been a fantastic nurser! No more fits at the breast, yay!
Where has the week gone? I have been so busy that it has just flown by! Work has been going fairly well, although I am feeling the pressure with my boss leaving in a month. Also, there are big happenings that mean great things for the hospital, so everyone is running around doing tons of stuff. There will be much to celebrate in the coming month.
I called Humboldt Childcare Council yesterday to check on my application for subsidized childcare. They said I qualify but they have no funds right now! I felt like crying.
I’ve been feeling pretty stressed out and anxious. I broke down with an anxiety attack the other night. I have no idea why I’m quite this stressed. Maybe a combination of things – work, sick baby, lack of sleep, lack of money, the holidays. This time of year is always hard on me for some strange reason, and it all seems to come to a head around my birthday. Maybe it’s just the weather. I got my depression workbook out Monday night to work on some things that will hopefully help.
I am heading up to Oregon this weekend for Jen’s son Andy’s first birthday. I’m so excited to see her and in person! Plus, I’ve never been further into Oregon than Ashland. I hope the weather cooperates. It’s SO COLD here.
Alas, I leave you all with a little bit of irony: as of Thanksgiving Day, I fit back into my pre-pregnancy pants. 😀
