My little bean woke up with a fever ("Are you hot, honey?" "No! Not hot at all! My feel great!" "Hmmmmm.") and shortly thereafter the fever spiked dramatically, she got those glassy red eyes, and she began hanging her mouth open in order to breathe ("Do you feel sick, honey?" "No! Not sick! My not sick, mama!!" "Hmmmm.").
At least she is taking a nap as we speak. And she drank a lot of water! That's ... excellent nursing on my part, right? Just nod.
Anyway, my sinus infection/upper respiratory infection combo (TWO! For the price of one!) is getting steadily worse, and although Genevieve struggled with a fever all night she woke up in high spirits. So high, in fact, that she thought all those pesky "naps" I kept talking about today were optional.
Ten minutes in the crib and I feel GREAT! Refreshing!
Anyway, plague house, blah blah blah. Thankfully I made a fantastic pot of chicken noodle soup last night, because the leftovers served as my breakfast and lunch.
What else is new?
Oh! Jeremy and I got iPhones on Saturday (they were free, so we couldn't very well say NO, now could we?), so if you have any app recommendations (I used to have an Android, so I know the basics, but most awesome apps aren't available on the Android), let me know, post haste. I would like to geek out as quickly as possible. I will also need some educational/kid app recommendations once I settle on a case and screen cover and will let Josie within 20 feet of the thing (Made of GLASS? Really? Just say it out loud. Sounds pretty stupid, now doesn't it?). I think my favorite part of this whole thing is the fact that Jeremy SWORE up and down that he would never own a smart phone. Unnecessary! he shouted. Silly! he exclaimed. Heh.
Genevieve is scooting like you wouldn't believe. She was just below me as I began typing this, and now she's across the room, flinging clean diapers every which way. She's happy, so I'm leaving her to it while I type and listed to Soapdish in the background (Yes! It's on Netflix! I love this movie eversomuch and haven't seen it for years! And bonus -- baby Robert Downey Jr.!)
(Drat. I just went and fetched her from the corner of the room and discovered a runny nose suspiciously similar to the one Josie had a few days ago. Blankity-blank germs. Grumble grumble.)
So summing up -- sick house, need iPhone tips and recommendations, want to hear your favorite part of Soapdish or illicit a promise from you that you will watch it ASAP and then come back here and tell me how right I was and it's the best movie you've seen in years. Now chop, chop, people! Get to your tasks!
