Well shit….. That’s not going to work

I don’t know why I even bother to plan anything anymore.  Well, I know why I do because the one time I don’t, it would have worked out. 

I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve had to say to myself today, well shit….. That’s not going to work.

This morning I managed to get a fever free Emmett to willingly go to school.


I was so tired though afterwards that I took a nap.  Not very productive but ones got to do what ones got to do. 

Anyway, I’m finishing up a conference call regarding the new podcast that Joel Manzer and I are doing together but should appear on my caller ID? The school….

Emmett was in the office with a fever and he needs to be picked up. 

This was about 45 minutes before I was to get him and take him to OT/PT this afternoon. 

Well shit… That’s not gonna work….

I called Akron Children’s Hospital and explained what had happened and asked if they would prefer us stay home from therapy.  They said yes and I apologized for the late notice and headed to the school. 

The next problem was whether or not to pull Elliott early as well. 

I didn’t want to remove him early but I also didn’t want to have to drag Emmett back out into the weather 90 minutes later to go pick up Elliott from school. 

I ended up choosing the less of two evils and pulled Elliott early. 

He was happy to leave but disheveled because it was a change to his routine.  Needless to say he’s been fun and just so we’re clear, by fun I mean absolutely not fun.

Thankfully though we were able to hit the reset button and he’s doing much better.  He even did some of his homework..

Now I just need to get them ready for Dr. Pattie’s tonight. 

Emmett’s only symptom right now is a low grade fever of 100.4°F and it could be a fever cycle or just his body reacting the to flumist.

To sum things up, Well shit….. That’s not going to work has been my goto phrase today. 

I didn’t get done nearly what I had hoped but I won’t give up on a few things I should still be able to squeeze in before bedtime.
