Not again!!

Yesterday I went to Austin for this "half way party" (half way through deployment) for Nicks troop, which was not all that exciting. There was only a few family's there. but it was good to get out. And I got to stop at Ikea which I don't get to do often. Also yesterday evening I started feeling a little breast tenderness which I at the time figured was because I hadn't nursed Rowan on that side to much that day. Then I awoke in the middle of the night to feel that all to familiar feeling of Mastitis. So I have yet another breast infection! When will this end. I must have had about 5 since I first began nursing Rowan 10 month ago. Oh the things we endure for our children For anyone who has never experienced this. Basically as my mid wife put it, you feel as if you have been run over by a truck. I usually wake in the middle of the night with chills and body aching followed by a fever. Thank God that this was not one of the worst ones I have experienced. I was actually able to get myself to the doctors first thing this morning and on Antibiotics by 10:00am. I have had them so bad that I could hardly move, fortunately Nick was still here at the time to get me to the doctor and take care of the kids.

On a better note. While I was waiting in line at the pharmacy There was this sweet old lady behind me that was chatting with Cameron a bit about her cute little sister. She asked Cameron "Do you help feed your sister?" and Cameron's reply was "No I don't have breasts yet" hahahaha the Woman thought that was pretty funny as did I.

The unusual post man

while I was away for the month of May I put my mail on hold, and checked the box on the form that said resume mail delivery after the specified date, being the 4th of June. So on the 7th of June I thought I better go to the post office and collect the mail myself. So once down at the post office the postal worker checked in the back for my stack of mail. When he returned he had the original mail hold form I had filled out. He said he had found it in my post mans garbage can, so if I hadn't already received my mail that it may be delivered that day. I asked him, is it unusual for mail of that sort to take a few days for delivery (for future reference) and this was his reply, mam have you seen your post man?" and my response was "no" then he says "he is unusual"

So I wonder what strange and unusual things I can expect for future mail delivery.
