2 AM

When I was nursing Duncan at night when he was little 2 AM was always the dreaded hour for him to wake up b/c there is nothing on tv. When you're that tired (I'm not comfortable nursing while I'm asleep) you need something kind of brainless, not too thought provking, but interesting enough to keep you from falling asleep.

So now it's 2 AM this silly cold has me up (yes Mom, I was up at 2 AM). I already decided at midnight that I'd be calling in sick today - I feel miserable. Although when I went to bed I honestly had every intention of going to work today. I already feel guilty b/c I was off for two weeks and I have so much work to do. But hey, when you can't even hear out of your left ear and, ewwww, it's leaking fluid, I think it's safe to say I wouldn't be too productive in the office. I think once the ear thing clears up I'll be good to go, but the left ear is giving me more grief than the right one did earlier in the day.Anyhow, there is still really nothing on at 2 AM. Poker after Dark, lots of infomercials, some "hard hitting" news program on CBS (not that discussing the problems in the Gaza Strip isn't important, my mind just isn't there right now). Nature shows are usually a safe bet, so right now it's National Geographic Channel - a show about Patagonia.

I went to the walk in clinic yesterday to have the ears checked. At that time though the right ear was giving me grief, not the left, and now it's the left, and it's bugging me a heck of a lot more. The thing is, I don't want to be taking anti-biotics if I don't have to b/c I've got Bean on board.

The other thing that's killing me is this cough. The doctor checked my chest yesterday and it's just a cough, but it's keeping me up!

Enough complaining. I'm going to try to go back to bed b/c I am till tired ( go figure!). Although in 4 months this will be reality again anyhow.

Oh yuck! I hope you feel better soon. It sucks to be sick, especially when you can't take the good drugs!
