Monday, Monday

What a weekend.  Ear infection seems to be under control, but I kept the little one home today for his doctor's appointment.  I hope he gets better soon, because I love him, but he's (understandably) an irritable little boy when he's sick.  And isn't it always inevitable that these things happen at the worst times?  Tonight I have a presentation at the university to present my thesis proposal and answer questions about it from my peers.  I didn't really have much time this weekend, so when my son finally went down for his nap today I threw together a quick PowerPoint.  Even though I'm not a huge fan of using PowerPoint.  I have the feeling I'm going to need the visual reminder of exactly what my thesis is about after a weekend of fevers, rashes and crankiness.

I have also realized just how close Christmas is, and just how little shopping I've finished.  The next two weeks are going to fly by with everything I need to get done!  Our photos need to be rescheduled, we have a Christmas party, gifts to buy and wrap..... I'm starting to hyperventilate just thinking about it!

Actually, the food is what I'll need to start thinking about soon.  The Christmas party next weekend, Christmas eve at a relative's house, boxing day at a friend's house...we've never had to worry about the food before, but I'm going to have to provide safe alternatives for my son and explain to everyone who doesn't already know what his new diet means.  But that can wait until tomorrow.  Today I need to put on an appropriate outfit for standing in front of a group of academically inclined people and try to remember something that doesn't have to do with toddler illness!
