Just Not My Day

Today started out way to early for my liking. At 4:30am *B* woke up crying Mommy. I run to his room to find his bed soaked. Since his diaper was dry my only logical explanation on this one is sweat. So, I striped him and his bed down, washed him off, and remade his bed. Only now he doesn't want to be in there....GREAT! So, to our bed he comes. Once there you would think he would sleep peacefully. Not so much. He tosses and turns, pops his head up and says "Baby", and if you try to pick him up to move him he's WIDE AWAKE. So, I just let him go on about his ritual while I lay there not sleeping.

6am rolls around and *H* is up for a feeding. Usually he goes back down until around 9am-ish, but of course today would not be the day he wants to do this. So, I'm up, but exhausted. Well 9am rolls around and *B* is still sleeping. How can this be? I go to our room to check on him and he's contently curled up beside DH with his head on his chest. *H* is down for a nap, so maybe I'll catch a few ZZZZ's. Wrong.

I just get laid down on the couch and *H* throws up EVERYWHERE! Argh. I jump up quick, and a stabbing pain in my lower right back brings me to my knees. I've felt this pain before. My kidney....oh no I hope it's not stones again. I don't have time to be sick. So, I muster up the strength to get to my feet and get *H* cleaned up, but poor DH who has to work tonite so he sleeps through the day is now up too, to help me. I'm in alot of pain now.

I'm laying on a heating pad, and I called my Dr. but of course he's out of town at a conference for the rest of the week, and his nurse was an unhelpful inconsiderate bitch to put it mildly b/c hello none of his patients are supposed to get sick when he's out of town. And, of course he doesn't have another Dr. covering his practice b/c they are also at said conference. NICE! And, of course if the pain gets worse seeks medical treatment. (She must of thought I was dumb.) Hello stupid nurse on the other end of the line do you not realize that it takes normally on average 6-8hrs at the ER to be seen and treated, I have a DH that needs to sleep to support us, and 2 children that I don't have a sitter for....plus our co-pay is $225 and they may or maynot include any labs that are done, and that doesn't even guarantee that the band aide station hospital will figure out what is wrong with me even though I'm pretty sure it's my kidney.

GREAT! So, like my title says....Just not my day.

Oh and *H* is fine now (pretty sure I didn't get out all the gas bubbles), and *B* is being a total hyped up heathen. Go figure.

AND (as if there could be anything more) my our 5gal fish tank that is only supposed to have 4 fish an an algae eater now has 12 fish and an algae eater. LOVELY! I'm not sure which one bred, but I was assured I had all male fish. I think not.

Picture Post

I decided that I would post the recent family pictures that we had done at Wal*Mart, b/c I'm a slacker.....no not really, I'm just extremely busy with two children. Plus, when I do have time I can't really think of anything to write about (well I can but not things I can write about here at this time without having to go private). So, this post is a HUGE deal, b/c *drumroll please* this is our FIRST.EVER.FAMILY.PICTURE!!!!! I'm excited. Of course, we've have pictures of *B* done by himself before, but none of all of us together. They turned out great, but I'll let you see for yourself. Enjoy!

Things Won't Change

Those are the words that over one month ago my sister said to me when her husband was returning home from I*raq. While I know it had been 15mths since he'd been home minus the birth of my niece in late June, I thought maybe this time would be different. So, I believed her. We used to talk daily on the phone if not more than once a day, and always talk at night after we got our kids in bed before we went there ourselves. I knew that the nightly conversations would cease to exist, but all phone calls???? Come on!!! Both times her DH has been deployed I've been there to lend an ear, played the big sister role. I'm always supportive and take that extra step to ensure that if she's having a rough time I cheer her up. So, now I'm going through another one of what I will call one of the roughest times in my life (only have had a handful) with the whole H*attie/H*unter/court/CPS issues and where is she? Being the unsupportive non-existant sister. Well, I know she's in G*eorgia visiting in-laws, but she has her cell phone. I've called repeatedly leaving messages, b/c I want need to talk to her. Do you think she can call me back either? Of course not. She's been in G*eorgia for 2wks this Saturday, I've called every other day leaving a message and am yet to receive a phone call back.

"Oh, But Thing's Won't Change!!"

Needed An Uplift

I've been in desperate need of a day at the salon. I didn't really want to color my hair or anything like that, I just wanted it cut and thinned out. I got there and I went from this long hair and thick 2 tone:To this shorter one color with subtle blonde highlights, that I was against getting at first:I love this look. But I have to admit I miss my long hair. I miss the ability to just throw it up in a pony tail and be out the door, or just put in a little product scrunch it and be done with it. Now, I actually have to spend some time on it to straighten it or put some curls in it, and definitely blow dry it if leaving the house. I needed a change though. I've been letting it grow for 3 1/2yrs with just a trim here and there. Hopefully it'll lift my spirits too, b/c stress is getting me down yet again. What do you think?
