Aaaand the hits just keep on comin'

When I last left you [and I assume you've all been on the edge of your seat] JR was on the side of the interstate in NC.

Well, he has since had his car towed to a dealership in Charlotte, gotten a ride and a free loaner car from one of his business partners, and returned home to try and catch up with everything he missed last week, work-wise.

He has been a wonderful Daddy and husband, and Grasshopper and I are very glad to have him home.

That said, he has been working a lot, and he will have to go back to Charlotte on Thursday to collect his car.

And Grasshopper is sick. Not terribly, horribly ill, just sick. He has been running a fever of 99.6 - 99.9 for two days and wiping snot on everything within reach (and even some things I didn't know he could reach). I am fully anticipating an ear infection since he doesn't appear to be able to catch a cold without escalating into an ear infection.

As of right now, though, he doesn't feel all that bad, but can't go anywhere or do anything [hello contagions!] and because it's f-ing freezing out even the backyard is off limits. Needless to say, he and I are both rather sick of each other at the moment. Apparently not feeling good and not being able to leave your house makes you want to push Mom's buttons...

And now our wireless router has decided to give up the ghost and cease working. I can still blog (obviously) but not nearly as often as when the laptop is parked on the kitchen counter. If you're following me on Twitter, you're about ready to release the hounds, I imagine, because I haven't been there either.

So I haven't really been here, and I haven't been anywhere else fabulous either.

Oh, and did I mention we're potty training again this weekend? Oh yeah, we are.

***Edited to add: I woke up at 3:30 am with a raging sore throat. I hope this is the end of my little pity-party!***

It's okay to visit the pity party. Just don't stay past last call. It'll all smooth out (it just doesn't feel like it right now).

Bummer Bummer BUmmer. I hate when kids and I are sick. Hope you are both back to feeling better soon. Popsicles, lots of popsicles. That always does the trick (then you can build stuff with the sticks ;)

It sounds like you've had quite a week. I hope everyone feels better soon and you can enjoy having JR home.
