The wife's family had their annual family picnic yesterday. The wife was working so I took Maggie so everyone could see her. We had a great time. Maggie got to play with her cousin Sonya who is only two months older. Sonya was trying to say Maggie but she couldn't pronounce the G so it came out "Ma--ie. Too cute.
The wife ended up getting off work early and joined us. We tried to get Maggie in the pool, but she wanted nothing to do with it again. She was watching all the other cousins jumping in the pool and she was thinking about it, but she would just stop at the edge and shake her head no.
I had a great time as usual. About 8pm I got really tired and almost passed out (yes I was sober, I had to drive Maggie home= no drinking) on the couch. Turns out I have some sort of bug. I went to bed last night freezing and feeling like I had a fever. I would wake up in a cold sweat and a puddle of drool. I did this last night about a dozen times. Thank goodness for my mother in-law this morning. She got up with Maggie and fed her breakfast while I finally took my temp and took some Tylenol and went back to bed. I slept the whole time Maggie was napping. I feel a little better but I can still tell something is off.
I hope I am better by tomorrow morning as I am starting a new job tomorrow morning. Yes, I am finally going back to work. It is not my dream job but it is a doorway to what I want to do. It is just orientation so I just have to sit there and listen. I will have to think if I still qualify as a stay at home dad. I would think not, but I do stay home when my wife works her shift. We will both be working twelve hour shifts so we will be alternating days until she goes on maternity leave. Wish me luck.
