Ten Thought Tuesday: The Recurring Theme Edition


  1. Yesterday, we had a family outing…at the medical clinic.  It turns out that my partner and I “just” have the flu, but the little guy has an ear infection, an eye infection and would have ended up with pneumonia in a few days.
  2. Of course, this means that he is on antibiotics.  So we “torture” him twice a day by shooting salt water up his nose and then using a pump thingy to get the snot out and by rubbing an antibiotic gel in his eyes.  The only thing he’ll take willingly, is the banana-flavoured antibiotic.
  3. On top of it all, I’m pretty sure that Little Dude’ left pre-molar is about to cut; he is slobbering like there’s no tomorrow, always has his finger on that side of his mouth, wants to nurse a lot (though, that’s probably due to his cold/infections) and is constantly clenching his teeth while nursing..
  4. On the good side of things, one awesome blogger has already sent me her Musts & Busts with regards to teething.  I would love to hear from other awesome bloggers to really build and interesting list.  The original post (including my email address) can be found here.
  5. Despite wanting to do NaNoWriMo, I have not written a word yet.  Not.  A.  Single.  Word.  The month of November has been much too crazy so far.
  6. I am still looking for some bloggers who would be willing to write a guest post for me.  You can check out this post for more details.
  7. On Friday, I am going to go buy some educational games with a co-worker for a lunchtime activity we’re planning on starting up.  Yay!
  8. I’m really looking forward to watching the first season of Dexter.  I’ve heard such great things about the series and my parents have lent us the first season.
  9. I recently started to play Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, but I’m not sure how I like it yet.  I personally wouldn’t have added an installment to the series, but hey, who can blame the company for wanting to make more money?
  10. Started reading Dan Brown’s Inferno yesterday.  I’m hooked!

Happy Tuesday (what’s left of it anyways)

Ten Thought Tuesday: The CRANKY Edition


  1. I’m seriously thinking about participating in NaNoWriMo this year.  Wish me luck!
  2. Tonight, we are eating a Shepard’s pie that my mom made.  Doesn’t food always taste better when prepared by your mom?!?
  3. Last Friday, we watched Now You See Me.  I really enjoyed it!
  4. The little guy is so cranky today.  All he seems to be able to do while at home is cry, whine and scream.  Thankfully, he wasn’t like that at daycare.
  5. I am late in a few posts.  For instance, I’ve received two wonderful postcards and haven’t posted them yet.  I’ll be getting to that this week.
  6. The three-day weekend that we just had was wonderful, I’d definitely be willing to permanently have three days off in a row.
  7. Halloween is coming up.  I can’t wait to dress up Charles.  He’ll be dressed up as a video game character (but I’m not telling you which one :P)
  8. I think I’m going to have my car checked; my speedometer wasn’t working today…
  9. Right now, we’re nearing the end of Fall.  It is absolutely my favorite season.  It’s so pretty with the trees that are a whole bunch of colours!
  10. Did I ever mention that I was a BzzAgent?  I’ve only done one campaign so far, but I’m really looking forward to doing some more reviews in the future.
