O got the test results back today, and they were negative. In fact, they were actually negative for any type of flu. Apparently, however, there's been a different virus going around, which presents with all the same symptoms as the flu. Guessing we had that. In any case, though, he's now cleared (and feeling better enough) to return to work tomorrow morning.
We decided to make today an Offline Day, a tradition in the KolyStar household from years ago, but which has fallen by the wayside. I think I'd like to make it a more regular occurrence, though - possibly even sometimes when O is at work, to help with my addiction. That's gotten pretty out of hand again lately, for numerous reasons, and I'd like to get it under control again.
Due to the feeling better and the being offline, we managed to actually Get Stuff Done today. We packed a couple of boxes - Buggie's stuffies, and our unnecessary shoes. We donated some things to an area daycare - outgrown disposable diapers, and some toddler food that contains soy - and picked up the diaper liners we'd purchased from Heather
. And we made bread (which didn't turn out quite right, but is terribly tasty - just didn't rise enough, probably due to not having the correct yeast on hand). Oh, and we made up another batch of all-purpose cleaner/disinfectant
and cleaned away the germs.
No one told me that Fuzzi Bunz run HUGE. Liam is a size L in all the diapers we own, and should be L in Fuzzi Bunz too, based on their weight chart. But we just got the 2 we'd ordered, and they're too big on him. So I guess we'll need to track down some M's at some point soon, if we're going to start trying those for night-time diapering. (He has another diaper rash, too, and I think it's from using disposables for bedtime. His skin is super-sensitive.)
Paperwork mess is all done, re: house, which means our closing date should, in fact, be 7/31. This likely means we'll be doing the actual move (with truck and all) on August 8th, pending an e-mail back from friends whose son's bday party may be that weekend too. LOCALS: Anyone who is willing and able to help us move that day, please let Oliver or me know ASAP. Thanks!
