It's not fair.

Life is so not fair sometimes. I'm finally officially done with my project, which means I can now relax and do the things I've been wanting to all semester. But I can't because I'm sick. I'm so stuffed up I can hardly breathe. Unfortunately, I'm just sick enough to not be able to be up and about for very long, but not sick enough to be passed out all day. So I get to lounge on the couch. Which sounds great, I know, but I'm bored. I have to always be doing something so I don't get so restless I feel like I'm gonna go crazy, but there's not much I can do. I have to admit, it wouldn't be that bad if it weren't for the fact that Max is sick too. The two of us are pretty pathetic, all stuffed up and woozy. But, we'll get over it and then dream of the day we can lounge on the couch all day again.

And now to catch up on what's been going on in our lives...
I dyed my hair last week- it's a wash-out dye so it's almost gone as I write this- and I love it. I got my hair cut and then used Color Pulse Chilled Plum. People kept telling me it should be permanant... we'll see...

And Rob's old roommate Nayte and his wife Savannah and son Daylin came to visit yesterday. Nayte is in the Air Force, stationed in Oklahoma, so this was the first time we've seen them since they got married. We're really sad that they're so far away since Max and Daylin are about a month apart. I think Daylin was the first boy baby Max has ever met- all the other babies are girls. So they got to play for a little bit while the adults got to visit. Them playing made me realize that I need to get Max in a playgroup or something. He wasn't sure how to deal with another baby- he spends the vast majority of his time with adults. Daylin is one of about 12 babies in their ward, so has plenty of opportunities to play with a lot of different babies, and so was just fine with Max. But Max was quite whiny and did not warm up to Daylin until it was almost time for them to go. So if anyone has a playgroup or wants to start one, let me know. I don't want to have a socially inept child. Daylin Daylin and Max Daylin sucking on Max's fingers The Click Family

  1. I don't think Max would enjoy the playgroup Whit and I attend with 3 and 4 year old munchkins.

    But I hope you can find one with friends for Max. It is as much fun for the moms as it is good for the kids to get that interaction. I think Kelly and Dianne are in one with younger kids. Maybe you can talk to them.

    Good luck!

  2. I am sorry you aren't feeling well! Are you guys getting any better? Let me know if I can do anything for you. I just hope you both are better in time for Cinco de Mayo.

    I would always get sick right after exams and stuff. Your body just all of the sudden lets down once the stress is over. And then comes the yucky colds. I hate that. David and I have been running around like chickens with our heads cut off lately and I am hoping that when things calm down I don't get sick.
    I feel your pain!

  3. Hey Jackie,

    I think a playgroup would be fun... I don't know if Clara is old enough to interact, but it would be fun to get started and she'll be able to interact soon enough.
