today we went to the tidepools. tonight evan is sick with the plague and keeps spiking a 104 fever. this is threatening my plans to have a slumber party tonight with all our friends! >:( wah wah parenting is hard. at least i have a bacon cheeseburger to sooth my misplaced teen angst.

go here:

click the menu directly above the image that says "actions". scroll down to "order prints and more". you can order that print up to a 16inch by 20inch poster if you click "more sizes" on the print menu! snapfish does good prints. i can print you off a poster too it will just take longer.
i dont think so because i have had my mom order prints and she is not a member, but i am not sure. i can also send you the file (it is gigantic) and you can print it whereever. i will print you one too if you want, i am just swamped for the next ___ until feb at least so i dunno when i will be able to.
104 is pretty high, isn't it? Hope he gets better soon.

I am so not looking forward to liz being sick.
yeah it's high, but its breaking so far everytime i tylenol him up. we run hot normally (like 100.1ish because of the health stuff) so it's not wildly out of character for him to get a 104. when i walked in 2hr ago it was at 106. he is a big kid now, so high fevers are still scary and worrisome, but not life threatening like for an infant who can't vocalize or tend to their own comfort needs. his fever keeps responding to meds and cooling rituals (shower, washcloth on head, etc) so until it refuses to budge it's not a huge deal. mostly he is just REALLY MISERABLE and doesn't want me to go anywhere, do anything, or be out of sight (literally i have to sit in the doorway right now where he can see me, NOT out of sight around the bend)
Fevers always freak me out because I jump straight to worrying about brain damage. If I saw 106 I would have went straight to the ER, lol. But if it's reacting to treatment, yay. And kids are just so resilient, seriously.
yeah, i have had so many high fevers from kidney infections in my life they are basically old hat. i will take him if it stays at 106 for like, an hour, but if it just reads there (because i am super vigilant about checking temps every 20min) i don't worry too much unless it's still climbing. however i am MASSIVELY paranoid about sicknesses and i am going to worry about meningitis until he starts showing symptoms of something else.
i hope his fever breaks :( my coworkers and i were just talking about that. fevers still freak me out.
love this! also, i got the pics you sent :D thanks so much!!!!! Did you end up getting the ikea frame for them?
not yet because i haven't made it to ikea yet. it is totally on my list of shit to do, but i keep having to work. fkn jobs man, how am i expected to be able to do anything if i have to work all the time?!
i love this shot. it's almost like a space shot of the world, but in a localized way if that makes sense.
