- Monday, 6:00 am. Violet snuggles up to me in her sleep and I can feel that her skin is practically on fire. I take her temperature to find it at nearly 103 degrees. It hasn't gone below 99.9 since then despite round the clock alternating doses of Tylenol and Motrin and lukewarm baths. Two doctor visits later we still only have the vague idea that it is viral and will hopefully be gone soon.
- To add to the poor child's misery she is also simultaneously cutting SIX new teeth. Originally I thought this could be the reason for the fever, but blood tests indicate otherwise. Also cutting teeth shouldn't cause a fever of over 101, according to the doctors we saw.
- A few days ago I (allegedly) forgot to close the door that leads from the garage to our den for an unknown period of time. Unbeknownst to us the friendly neighborhhod skunk came on in and hid away, only coming out to rummage through the trash while we slept. Luckily we keep the den door closed so he did not have access to the rest of the house. He stayed in the den overnight and the entire next day. I was the lucky one who opened the den door that next night to see his fluffy ass pointed right at me. Yes. I was face to ass with a skunk, only a foot away from me. I screamed "WILD ANIMAL!" and slammed the door shut, scaring Violet and her friend that was visiting half to death. Jeremy finally got him out by using our obsolete projection screen TV as a shield and a broom to scoot the skunk out. Luckily no one was sprayed during this adventure. Jeremy is now known as 'The Skunk Whisperer' in these parts.
