As for the meal prep... I made a good effort. I hit a few snags like a power outage and my son getting really sick. All in all I stuck to it way better than I originally thought I would. I have done all the dinner except two that I still plan on making. It's been fun trying new recipes with my husband and finding things he really enjoys. I made the stuffed shells and apparently that meal was Facebook status worthy in the words on my sweet husband.
Aa I mentioned, my son got pretty sick this last week. He had his 12 month wellness check up on a Friday. He ended up getting four shots, one of which was the chicken pox. My husband left for the field super early Monday and wasn't home until late Wednesday night. Monday I had noticed a few spots on the back of his neck and around his ears before putting him to bed. Tuesday he woke up with more mostly on his back and some on his chest. I watched the rash all day and kept an eye on his temperature. He felt warm and slept most of the day. So Wednesday arrived and I decided to take him in. The rash was now all over his body and you could tell he was miserable.
They didn't seem worried about the rash. Said it was most likely a viral infection. They tested for strep and checked his ears. I was thinking he might have had a reaction to the chicken pox because both the rash and fever are possible side affects. Was told to just let it run its course. We gave him Tylenol for the fever but the poor guy would just lay on me all day and then when he would nap it'd be for four hours.
When my husband returned home from work on Thursday, we noticed he was looking a little blue. He gave him a bath because it was almost bed time for the little guy but when he got out I looked at him and decided we should take him in again to check his oxygen levels. When it was all said and done he was fine but his fever was still going up. We were put on a strict four hour schedule for the Tylenol.
At about 4 a.m. it had reached 103.1. But as the day went on it kept going down and he started feeling better and better. Finally feeling himself again this past Sunday. As you can see my goals have taken a back seat. My son comes first and I'm okay with the idea of not finishing up my goals for something like that.
As far as the workouts go. I have gotten down on the floor while my son is playing and done push-ups, crunches and butterfly kicks but I guess I don't really consider that a workout. My husband is out again this week and as soon as he gets back we are headed to Philadelphia. I will be attempting to get a few full workouts in to say I at least tried but at this point I don't think I'll be getting the full eight in unless I do two a day.
With my husband being gone, in the evenings after Grayson has gone to bed, I plan to use that time to catch up on the monthly posts for Grayson. I had my husband help me figure out my hard drive and I'll be organizing pictures and getting those added. If all of that gets done I can finally start back up on his baby book!! Now that he's a year old I want so badly to finish it and get it printed.
