Last week’s illness was very short lived. We did not medicate The Bear’s fever and it broke around 5p on Thursday. She was tired and hungry on Friday and Saturday was back to her saucy self.
I know not treating fevers can be kind of controversial, but hubs and I are big believers in not medicating if you really don’t have to. Fevers are a good thing for the body… shows that the immune system is mounting an attack against the foreign invaders. So, we keep a close eye on the fever and the kiddo and let the body work.
There was a little bit of drama surrounding the girls’ Halloween costumes. We ordered parts for their costumes from Amazon and it was delivered via USPS. According to the tracking number, it was delivered last Wednesday… but there was no box. After talking to Amazon and the USPS, we ended up getting a refund and re-ordering the items (the USPS was not much help at all, BTW.) This time, however, I chose 2 day air, guaranteeing it could be delivered via UPS (right to our door) rather than the Post Office (left at the communal mailboxes.) **Update: UPS delivered the package, yesterday.**
It’s kind of hit me that I should really consider packing a hospital bag at some point. I tend to overpack, in general, and I really want to avoid this. I really should have kept a record of what I packed when preggo with the girls. I do have one important item for the bag: Raw Honey in mini-bear bottles for easy to digest fuel for labor.
So… have you seen the Obama Campaign’s “My First Time” Ad? IDK, ladies, it sounds like our vote is only meaningful if it involves voting with our “lady parts” and only voting for “women’s rights” issues. Watch here. What do you think?
On the other hand, I know I (like many of you) are kind of tired of bone-headed politicians pretending they are theologians. Now I am sure there are some politicians who are theologians, and I sincerely pray they are not the ones spouting off any variation of nonsense that any rape is OK as long as it’s: legitimate, honest, emergency or, the latest, God-Willed. I’m going to go Catholic on you for a bit here: Evil exists in the world. Since the Fall, Man (general) has been open to attacks by the evil one. Rape (and other acts of violence) is not God-Willed; Rape is the result of us living in a Fallen World. But the bigger question remains: If a child is conceived during an evil act, does that make the child expendable?
On a lighter note, did you have a chance to check out “What I wore Sunday” ? What did you think?
