I didn't have the make-up Arabic class this morning that I had planned to attend, so I stayed home while Emy cleaned windows and then left to meet Thomas for lunch. It was nice to get out of the house, after seeing Benjamin behave normally I felt good about leaving. My new lanyard had arrived, since I have to wear a badge at all times in the embassy I thought I should have something fun to wear. The sweet lady who sold it to me from Etsy also made a pair of matching earrings that she included as a surprise. It was exciting to get mail, we also got a Netflix DVD- Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. We watched it tonight, and I liked it a lot. I'm a fan of the Guy Ritchie aesthetic.

After lunch I shopped at the co-op for bacon and a bottle of wine, some other random items. I got home and Emy cleaned a little bit while I played with Benjamin. I must say, having her come consecutive days is great, I just leave the dirty dishes from the night before and she washes them and puts them away. Delightful.
After Benjamin got up from his nap, he was fussy all afternoon. It was relief when Thomas got home, he caught a ride with a friend. He made dinner and then put Ben to bed, so we could have a little peace. His teething must be pretty bad, he keeps waking up crying despite the Motrin I gave him earlier. All in all, an okay day. Pray for Benjamin, that his digestive stuff is over and he'll be less fussy tomorrow. Oh and the eBay purchase went through, my dad paid using his PayPal and we'll just mail them a check. Dad to the rescue!
