Hubs is always up at the butt crack on his days off,
Grabbed some coffee Wednesday morning, headed straight to the bathroom in an effort to paint my face, so as not scare the life out of people on the outside world. It never works, but I had to settle for doing the best I could, with what little I have. Made it for the appointment to have our taxes done. (no, we don't do it ourselves, it's too darn complicated and we don't want to be held responsible if we screw it up) We survived and were out of there before noon. Went to the diner to grab some breakfast, which never happens that early in the day. Stopped by an antique shop
Having survived the early day and feeling rather pleased, we headed home and I planned to catch up on blogs and emails and generally laze around. No such luck. Barely made it in the door, when my Daughter calls crying, in a major panic. I can hear "Tink" in the background, wailing in a sound that can't be described. Poor baby had already been to the doctor earlier that day, running a high fever, congested, coughing and had an ear infection. She had fallen asleep after the ordeal and woke up screaming with shoulder/neck pain. Don't even remember driving over there, it's a total blur. Luckily it's only about 5 miles. Fortunately, Hubs was able to pick "Twink" (her sister) up at school and bring her on home, and in all the hubbub she wasn't forgotten.
That child was SO sick! Felt like I was having a flashback to my younger days, as a mother with young kids, struggling when the inevitable sickness happened. Dreading the nighttime, when the fevers always seem to rise. Wishing the medications would work their magic quickly and ease the suffering... theirs and mine.
What a difference a day makes! "Tink" is nothing like yesterday, thank you Lord. No fever, no pain. Still snotty and coughing, but on the mend. Mommy and Granny survived, too.
Managed to get on here some, in between the chaos and having to share the computer, still. That white laptop is sounding sweeter and sweeter, in spite of the color. During the time away, I've managed to get more than a little behind. I'm still trying to catch up. I will, eventually. Don't know how you BIG BLOGS manage. Crap, I'm small and already there doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day, to read, comment and post. Don't think I'll ever be able to post every day. Think I prefer you deciding the topic and all I have to do is read and comment. Heck, that's a full time job!
Thanks to the new followers! Still haven't located a couple of you, since you didn't leave comments.
Bendigo, I haven't forgotten you, either. I'm going as fast as this tired old woman can go.
Jenny, as soon as I get the birdies and my photo application going, I'll post.
Now, I'm off to read and comment to each of you, for as long as I can keep my eyes open. Thanks everyone!
