Random Thoughts #41

  1. The baby got her first dose of the H1N1 vaccine. Apparently kids up to age 10 have to have two doses, 1 month apart. So, poor D will get 3 flu shots this year. I wish they would tell you that when you schedule the first shot, I would have scheduled the second one while I was on the phone the first time since it took 30 minutes of waiting to get the first one scheduled. But that would be way too convenient for people I suppose.
  2. Due to a scheduling snafu, I will be posting over at Midwest Parents again next week. Apparently I forgot the first week of November. I hope there wasn't a subconscious or clairvoyant reason that I wanted to forget next week! Have you been to the new Midwest Parents yet? We have tips for running a healthy and happy family, Wordless Wednesday, Thursday Good Reads, and recipes on Fridays. With seven bloggers, you're sure to find someone new you'll enjoy reading!
  3. Our trees have arrived for the annual Festival of Trees and decorating is scheduled to commence next week. It's always a lot of work for me, but it's fun too (when I'm not getting stressed out). Last year D rode in the sling when we were putting the trees up in the Civic Center. I suppose this year she'll have to sit in the stroller while I put the finishing touches on the tree. She still fits in the sling too, so I guess that's still an option too.
  4. The big kids are having their "character parade" at school this afternoon. D is going to wear one of her costumes when we go watch too. They are so excited. Hopefully it's not raining so they can parade outside.
  5. I wonder if I'll remember that Daylight Savings Time ends this weekend? Extra hour of sleep!

yeah, j. needs another flu shot, too. only our ped. may not have enough to spare when the time comes. the first provides the bulk of the immunity, i hear.

yay for an extra hour of sleep!

I'm so happy for that extra hour that it's almost sad.

for a different kind of girl said...

Wow, when I've heard them suggesting infants receive the H1N1 shots, never once has there been mention that a second dose would be necessary.

I also haven't heard them reminding me about the time change this weekend. I dread the idea of darkness at 5 p.m. I already feel holed up in the house after the soggy October we've endured!
