evil kitty

(no subject)

Very apologetically, our nanny arrived at 7:51 this morning. "It won't happen again," she said. But then she astutely noted, "I know I say that every day." Well, no. She has probably 2 days a week that she's on time or early. It's the three days of the week that she's late that bother me. Usually it's only 5 minutes, maybe 10. That doesn't sound like much, I suppose. But considering that my preference is to be at work well before 8 (for a long time before Julian it wasn't unheard of for me to be at work by 7...I can't get into the building before 6:30), it's hard for me to manage my schedule, still get to see Julian in the evening, and have her arrive around 8am.

The other problems we had with her in the beginning have largely dissipated. I think that if we make it clear that on-time in the mornings is not negotiable for us, she'll adjust. At least I hope so... Now to figure out how to have that conversation.

stupid health crap.

I have a damn ear infection. This makes me wonder if I should buy my ticket for San Antonio or not. I'm supposed to go there on the 16th. The last time I had an ear infection (I get them every 4-6 months), it lasted 3 1/2 weeks through two antibiotics, ear drops and a trip to an ENT who gave me steroids which helped. I'm nearly positive I don't want to be on a plane with an ear infection. Crap.

That's one.

I can't feel my right hand. I haven't been able to feel my right hand 90% of the time for the last 4months or so. I also cannot feel most of my right arm about 30% of the time. I am not appreciating this.

I'm getting headaches. I don't like it. But at least that's normal.

And my knee still doesn't feel better from my fall down the stairs before Turkey Day.

But mostly, I'm just pissed off about this ear infection.
