Summertime Sickness

We're going to play a little Jeopardy today on the blog (I give you the answer, you give me the Question)! The answer is, antibiotics! The question is, you guessed it, what do you need when everyone is sick?

Last weekend we discovered that Bailey, our golden retriever had an ear infection. Ted took her to the vet and we began giving her antibiotic ear drops. Then on Thursday afternoon Maddy started complaining about her ear hurting. We went through getting tubes in her ears about a year ago and we were worried that there might be an issue. Ted's Mom took Maddy to the doctor of Friday morning because neither Ted or I could get out of work easily and Grammie loves helping out. Maddy not only had an ear infection in her right ear, but the pressure from the infection had built up and ruptured her ear drum. Apparently that sounds way worse than it is. We ended up with two prescriptions for antibiotics for her, one oral medicine and one in ear drop form. 2 Davis members down, 2 to go! Sunday morning I woke up with a very very sore throat but no other symptoms. By 4pm I had a 102 degree fever and could barely move. After a very rough night, I went to the doctor this  morning to find out that I have strep throat and now have my very own antibiotics. Good grief! The good news is that everyone on antibiotics is already feeling much better, yay medicine!

Catching up!

Yes I know it's been almost 4 weeks since I posted on here. Yes I know that is a really long time. Yes I know that last year I posted nearly everyday. Life is really hard sometimes and the last thing you want to do is post pictures and write about how hard life is. Selling a house is hard. Writing a dissertation is hard. Raising an independent little person is hard. Commuting 2 hours a day, to work 40 hours a week is hard. Blogging is actually pretty easy and you can guarantee I'd almost always rather be doing this rather than laundry, cleaning or meal prep. But really though, sorry about my lapse in blogging. I miss sharing what's going on in our lives and I'm glad I'm back after my momentary hiatus.

So here's a recap of  the main highlights and a few photos to show that we have in fact been doing well! I went to San Diego with my best friend Kendra and the zoo rocked. Maddy took another session of gymnastics and swimming and loved them both. It was sunny A LOT and Maddy had her first slurpee. We went to a birthday party that was a whole building of bouncy houses. People looked at our house but no one bought it. Ted and I both have both each lost over 10lbs and are feeling a lot healthier.

Our greatest news since the last post is that Maddy is potty trained except for overnights (although wakes up half the time with a dry pull-up). Woo hoo, that's the greatest thing ever!

Thanks for sticking with us! I will try to be more diligent!
