Yesterday as I was leaving my office I gathered together materials so that I could work at home today. Being at work when no one else is around is kind of depressing, even though I know it’s only because I am taking my vacation later than some. So I thought I’d change the scenery for a day and see if that improved my mood.
Then I drove to daycare to pick up Minnow and I discovered that she had a 102 F fever. A visit to the pediatrician this morning confirmed my suspicions: she has an ear infection. I’ll be home today and maybe tomorrow with her until the antibiotics kick in. Hopefully she’ll nap a lot and I can get some work done, but I’ll also just enjoy the time around the house. One nice thing about a sick Minnow – she tends to be even more cuddly than usual. And I do like baby cuddles.
I hope everyone else can enjoy a few moments of quiet in the next few days too. Hopefully without medical necessity.
