We got tickets!

Hooray! We're going to see the Police!!

Police tickets

Well, I was pretty depressed Monday when I wasn't able to get Police tickets. is a piece of crap. Dan and I had maybe 8 browser windows going on three different machines and only one of them actually got to an order page...twice. However, every time I tried to order, it bounced me back to the previous page. I just watched the clock tick by until finally we were notified that only scattered singles were available and, finally, that it was sold out. Luckily, they have added a second show and it looks like Best Buy is offering pre-orders for their Zone members. So, this time I will order them that way.

Clark's food and nap log

In an attempt to get an idea of how much Clark is eating, now that we've introduced solids, I'm going to attempt to keep track of it here. I'm also thinking he's starting to nap sorta on schedule, so I'll try to keep track of that too.

So, today:
6:30 - nurse
8:30 - nurse, nap
10:00 - 3.5 oz. banana/apple/pear + 4 tbl oatmeal
this got screwy because we were out for many hours today
5:00 - 3.5 mixed vegetable, 3.5 banana/apple/pear

So its rodent poison?

So now its looking like rodent poison in the tainted cat food.

The cats are mostly ok

The boys had blood and urine tests yesterday and they're just fine, so it looks like the bad food didn't affect them after all...thank goodness. The vet suggested that we hold onto our receipt for the visit in case there's a class action suit. However, the doctor looked at the growth in Oberon's mouth and *finally* agreed that we should so something about it. He's going in for a biopsy the Monday after next. I'm scared about it, but glad something is finally getting done.

Clark is still getting up in the middle of the night, I'm going to give him until Monday to fix the problem before I call the pediatrician or start trying something like Ferber.

Last night I made a terrific chicken parmigiana recipe..very, very good. However, I halved the sauce recipe and still had enough left over to freeze for two more meals. So next time I will quarter it:

Another bad night...but not a bad morning

Clark was up at midnight tonight, crying. Unfortunately I had gotten caught up in watching Layer Cake and didn't get to sleep until a bit after 11. I nursed him and put him back to bed, only to have him wake up at 5. I had resigned myself to nursing and letting him, hopefully, doze in my arms so I could sleep a little in the recliner, but he was so zonked out I was able to put him back to bed and got myself a couple more hours sleep. I'm thinking about calling the pediatrician today to get their advice on whether I should let him cry it out, or keep tending to/nursing him until he's feeling better.

My nephew is sick today, so my brother has stayed home with him and invited Clark and I over to visit. We'll stop by there after we head to Gamestop to pick up Cooking Mama. We also need to stop by the pet store and return all of our tainted cat food. Oberon and Tristan will be going to the vet tomorrow to get their blood and urine tested.

Real Housewives of Orange County...

...reunion special is on. Comments to follow.

Comment #1 - I hate Jo.

Comment #2 - "I had a [nose] bump removed, but not cosmetically". Whatever.

Comment #3 - I hate Lauri. I wonder how much that ring cost.

Comment #4 - "The wives who watch this can relate to at least one of us". Um, what planet are you from?

I wish I knew why I loved this show so much. Here's to hoping there's a third season!

Tough day...

Clark is still going through some sort of transition, or otherwise not feeling well. This is the upteenth day in a row that he has been extremely needy and cries when I put him down. Last night was a nightmare, but I'm crossing my fingers that he'll be better tonight. Unfortunately, he cut his two bottom teeth and exactly the same time, so I can just imagine the pain he has been feeling. But they've poked through now, so hopefully that will ease up for a little while at least. Anyway, regardless of his neediness, I still had time to make this movie. The first footage is from a couple months ago, and last footage from this morning.
