Christy - I'm so sorry you have to go back to that job. My advice would be to keep looking for something better. If you have to work, you should at least be able to work at a nice place. Good luck.
I've been looking in my fridge all day, and the nice line of bottles filled with milk that I have produced for my baby! She is totally off the formula (has been for about 5 days now), and is about as content as a baby could be. Other than my nipples being extraordinarily sensitive right now, I'm fairing pretty well. I cut out one of my pumpings, because it was getting too hard to wake up for. I actually saw a slight increase in production, afterwards, so I think it is an all right thing. I'm starting to have to think about milk storage and all that. I know that freezing kills some of the antibodies in breastmilk, so I'm thinking that I will be have a rotation of some frozen and some fresh, once I have an adequate stash built up. I should really post some of my questions over at the breastfeeding board. I'll do that soon!
And we managed to get our taxes done this weekend. We can't actually file yet, because we still haven't received Emily's SS#, and you can't get the deduction without it.
I told you all about my dog puking on me last week? The car, while cleaned, still smells. I'm hoping some Febreeze will take care of it. Anyway, the poor thing started yelping on Thursday night. We didn't think much of it (he's a weird dog), but on Friday morning, I touched his muzzle, and he yelped again in pain. After calming him down, and reassuring him that he wasn't in trouble and I didn't hurt him on purpose (he's a shelter dog, with a suspected history of abuse), I was able to feel around gently on his jaw, only to discover a big hard lump.
I had to take him into the vet to have it looked at. I wasn't able to find a babysitter, so had to bring both girls and the dog. To top it all off, the base for the infant carrier was in dh's car. The carrier can be installed without the base, but it is a gigantic pain in the a$$. I'm still not sure I did it properly. The vet thought it was just an infection and gave me some antibiotics to try. They seem to be helping. He isn't in pain anymore, and the lump is going away. Unfortunately, the antibiotics they gave me were $100 for a 2 week course!
It's a good thing the dog has cute ears and my toddler is so attached to him. Next time I'm asking for the generic brand of medicine.
Anyway, I hope everyone has a fabulous week!
