Day off of work…

Day off of work…

I had the day off work yesterday.  It was not the most enjoyable day.  I got a call about lunch time on Thursday that Sweetpea was acting like she was not feeling well.  Grandma was able to get her a doctor’s appointment.  Off they went.  The doctor informed Grandma that she has an ear infection, eye infection caused by the ear infection and a cold.  Holy cow!  Poor kid.  I knew that she had a cold and was cranky.  She had not run a fever, so it never crossed my mind that she had an ear infection.  I called the boss for a sub.  I was scared to even ask for a day off after being chewed on at the faculty meeting that we were taking too many days off work.  That is a whole different complaint.  I won’t even get started.  Anyway.  They got me a sub and I had the day off work to take care of my sick baby.  We had an antibiotic, eye drops and nose drops for her.  That was fun.  Eye drops and an 18 month old do not mix well.  I asked the pharmacy clerks if they had any suggestions on giving her the eye drops and they actually laughed at me.  I will be glad when this is done with.  Sweetpea really did not act sick on Friday, but today is acting like she is not feeling well.  D is working this weekend, so it is just us girls.  I wish I could take a fun day off of work.  I am starting to believe personal days are a joke.  I have not had one is 4 years.  Someday…
