Apology, Excuse

Sorry for the lack of postings of late...the brother was out last weekend (and we had an EXCELLENT time despite the weather not totally cooperating and my not being the world's greatest hostess), Jody is taking this week off (a "staycation" if you will, and he will), and Violet popped a fever on Sunday that topped out/freaked me out at 104.3° yesterday.

Unless the fever breaks something quick, Violet will be out of the running for day care today, meaning all those errands and periods of relaxation I had counted on will have to wait. But time is running short as this is her last week of day care and I go under the knife a week from Friday...

Me-wise, I've been feeling kinda ok--neuropathy really ramped up over the weekend until I realized that I should maybe stay away from tighter-fitting sneakers and stick to The Fug that are Crocs (yes, I've been assimilated--resistance is futile).

I'm also getting a tough lesson in aging and that no matter your best of intentions (and/or Rx on hand), sleep does not comes as easily as it once did and holding on to it once you have it can be even harder.

Ok, gotta run and try to get the hot 'n wee one to actually eat something...

ETA: Over the course of the weekend, I flipped the odometer on the ol' ('99) Passat to 100K. This is what qualifies for excitement these days... ;)

Wear those crocs and eff the lot of them!
Hope you and V feel better soon. And the whole odometer thing-- that is right on par with what passes for excitement in the Brownzini household too ("hey, we finished this box of ziplocks we bought last summer." "oooohh, how 'bout that." \/

Hope little V gets better soon - and that your neuropathy gets better!!! Enjoy the staycation! I will be starting one myself next week.....

I've never clicked over 100K on the odometer; that is very exciting! My personal version is hitting 500 miles on the ASICS (which I do track on a spreadsheet complete with graphs of total bike/run/swim miles and weight).

I hope Ms. V cools off soon and that you improve from kinda okay! I think crocs are forgiven in children and neuropathy-sufferers. If you continue to wear them, however... ;) (Very much kidding there; those in glass houses and ancient stinky sandles should not cast fug-judgement.)
