Sick, sick, sick!

Poor Clare!  Over the course of the past 2 weeks she progressed from having cold symptoms, to an ear infection with pharyngitis and an upper respiratory infection, to another ear infection (in the other ear) with tonsillitis and possible whooping cough.  2 antibiotics later she is finally doing better!  Tuesday and Wednesday evenings she had coughing fits that lasted hours, almost resulting in an emergency room visit.  She is still on 2 inhalers, a reflux med (for the vomiting that accompanied the coughing fits), an antihistamine, and nighttime herbal cough syrups. Fingers crossed that tomorrow she is okay for school…….we both need a break from each other!   2 days before she got sick we ceremoniously dropped all of her pacis down the trash chute.   That combined with the sickness has halted (hopefully temporarily!) her napping in her crib.  She just occasionally passes out… image

Celebrity stalking

Giuliana Rancic is not only in town, she was making an appearance at “my” beach! I decided to go get an up close glimpse of her….

Selfie with her billboard – should’ve asked Santa for a selfie stick

I thought I had the perfect spot to see her arrive, alas she fooled me!!! I quickly ran to the entrance only to catch a glimpse




I was so star-struck!!! I was maybe 50 feet from her! She sounded so great, very poised, and seemed to really love Dubai (this is her first visit).

I only stayed for part of her interview, I may or may not have ingested too many glasses of champs last night and needed to get back to the couch.
