What A Weekend!

Hey Everyone!

This has been a quick but full weekend. It was pretty fun, but that always means that it will go to quick.

Saturday morning started very normally. We got up had coffee, breakfast, and watched some local news. Everett was safely playing in our make shift area haha. Don’t mind the dog’s ass πŸ˜‰

All was well and good. Later that day is when it got interesting. I went in to work with my co-worker to replace an old network location. It was out in the shop up on a mezzanine. I wasn’t able to get a shot of it all whole so here is the first one I took.

Pretty messy right? Ya, we thought so too. Once that was done we pulled it off the wall and that is when the fun began.

Our goal was to make sure that none of the fiber lines broke, make sure we knew where everything was supposed go again, and put it all back together nice and neat in this new rack.

This is when we we getting close to being done. As you can tell it is getting dark. We have the switches at the top and patch panels below that. Further down we have a shelf for out laptop and a new battery backup at the bottom.

I had my co-worker send me a picture once he tidied up a bit. It is all up and running well today.

The reason I had to leave, just before it was finished was because we were celebrating my little brother’s 28th birthday. It was at the local bowling ally, where were had our whole family gathered and ate pizza and wings.

Everett wanted to keep score with my dad and older brother, that is until he ripped the sheet haha.

Notice that the corner of the sheet is gone in the next one and that he seems quite happy with himself haha.

Later, after we played two games the birthday boy and his daughter got to go down to the end of the lane so she could try to hit the pins. The zoom sucks but it was a cute moment. We know the guy who runs the ally so he was cool with it all.

We packed up and went to my parents house where we had ice cream cake from the DQ! That is always a bonus.

Everett was content with a pad of paper. Not sure why he is into such weird stuff.

That was it for Saturday. As for Sunday we got some work done around the house. I shoveled the side walk. It was a lounge type of day since it was so busy Saturday. I was fine with the day ending like that, but it didn’t. Everett’s cough came on fast and barky. We dropped everything we were doing at about 4:30 and ran him to the local clinic, only to find out that they don’t see children that young. (Side note: That is F*cking stupid) Anyway, we called another clinic about 30 minutes away and were able to get him in there just fine. He has croup again, and they prescribed him a steroid. So great, we thought it would be better from there. It wasn’t, we took him home and gave it to him and he threw up instantly. We tried again after eating this morning and he instantly threw up his whole bottle. My guess is that he is allergic. He is back at the babysitter today and we are going to push through it. I think we go see our new pediatrician in a couple days for a follow up, so I’ll letΒ  you know how that goes.

We slept on the couch last night since Everett went down last night refusing his bottle. We didn’t want to wake him again, for fear of him not going back to sleep. Needless to say, but we are a little tired today haha.

Work is going well, the only down side is seeing the snow piling up today. I’ll have about 6-10 inches to shovel again after work. I try to think of it as a workout haha.

That is all for me, I hope you all had a great weekend. I’ll see you again tomorrow! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  1. That was quite a busy weekend! Glad the birthday party seemed to go so smoothly!

    It is annoying that many of those clinics won’t see children at all (or before a certain age), but it’s probably because they don’t have a pediatrician on staff and everyone is afraid of lawsuits.

    One of my girls had a real barky, croupy cough quite often as well. You might try (if you haven’t already) using a vaporizer that’s medicated with something like Vick’s vapor rub. That will help to open up the bronchial passages–and he won’t throw up! Alternately you can just turn on a hot shower and let him breath the steam although that limits you to being in the bathroom!

    1. The birthday party was really fun. Normally all we do is dinner, bowling was a nice change.

      Ya I think that is why, but I can’t help but wonder how people can turn away a sick kid. I understand this wasn’t necessarily life or death but what if it was? They would turn them away. Sad.

      We have had him in the bathroom when we ran the shower, that seems to help. I heard the cold air right now helps as well. We will see at his appointment tonight I guess haha.

      1. If it was a matter of life and death, the place would have called an ambulance and followed instructions via radio or phone.

        Cooler air may help some, but I’d be careful with that one. You don’t want too much of that cold air getting into his lungs.
