An (Un)Eventful Weekend

Coming off of a crazy week of sickness I decided that Caderyn and I weren't going to do a dang thing this weekend.

It has been wonderful for me. Caderyn is probably bored out of his gord.

Before I continue I would like to insert an apology here for not having any updated pictures. I still don't have my camera charger ( or my sunglasses). I do get paid this week and am anticipating buying another charger on Amazon.com for $8. As for the sunglasses- I might have to give Jeff the kicked puppy look until Christmas.

So Friday. I worked. I weighed in at Weight Watchers and celebrated the fact that I'd lost 2.8 pounds this week. This brings my total to 34 lbs. Woo! Here's to another great week. Then I went back to work. Then I went home and took Caderyn to the doctor for a check up on his lungs. The news wasn't great. The doctor was concerned because his lungs didn't really sound better. He was acting better, but his lungs didn't seem to be healing. So I sighed internally and put my mommy face on and started asking questions. What does this mean? Well this means that he needs to stay on antibiotics and the nebulizer for five more days. What else? He needs to come back on Tuesday. And? If he doesn't sound any better then we'll need to do x-rays immediately.
Great.
Oh and the doctor told me his activity levels need to be kept to a minimum this weekend. Easier said than done.
My poor sweet boy. He just wants to jump and play and mow the lawn with his fake lawn mower.
So mommy and Caderyn returned home on Friday. I wasn't in the best of moods, my mind was going crazy with worry. Then my friend Lisa texted me about going for a walk. We went out to Spring Meadow Lake- just five minutes from our house. Lisa and I have similar Kelty backpacks and we loaded our kiddos into them with Lucy on her leash and walked about a mile around this really pretty lake. We also solved the problems of the world. Thanks Lisa!
After the walk I picked Jeff up from work and he took us out to dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant, Emilianos. We ordered Caderyn a bean burrito and he pretty much ate the whole thing. I was amazed because that burrito was bigger than his stomach.
Then it was home and to bed for the big guy. I picked up the house and set to making a cake for Jeff. Once the cake was made in the freezer to be frosted on Saturday, I CRASHED on the couch. It was lovely.
Caderyn slept in until 8:30 a.m. on Saturday. THANK YOU LORD.
I made homemade waffles and set to cleaning and playing.
Our day was filled with breathing treatments and trucks and walks and exploring. He took a great nap which allowed me to get more laundry done and frost the cake I made.
Bedtime was wonderful.
I have slept so much this weekend.
I'm getting ready to go into work for a few hours and that's about the extent of my weekend.
Aren't you glad to know!
