Do you ever have one of those blogs that you enjoy reading and then the person doesn't post for a while and you're all, "Why aren't you posting? I know you've been stuff this week. POST!!" And then you think, "Well, fine, then. I just will quit reading!" But really, inside, you really want them to post?
So sorry about the lack of post-age. I know my mom is quite upset about it.
Here is my week:
Sunday: Oldest Child starts throwing up. I do not get to leave the house all day.
Monday: Oldest Child seems better so we do some light shopping then lunch. That afternoon, vomit commences again followed by a 5 hour nap and high fever. Colin and I get in a fight about a)the amount of medicine Oldest Child needs and b) the odds of whether or not Oldest Child has swine flu.
Tuesday: Youngest Child goes to school, Oldest Child gets to go to the doctor. After a strep test, and a flu test (which caused a massive nosebleed and also almost resulted in him getting a FLU SHOT instead of a FLU TEST; nurse blames dr's handwriting, dr blames silly nurse) we are told it's "just a virus!" Ok, can I have my copay back?
Wednesday: I do not get to leave the house all day with Oldest Child. Most of the day is spent with me saying to Oldest Child, "Geez, it's a just a virus! Get over yourself so we can enter into the land of the living for heavens sake!"
Thursday: We had been out in the "land of the living" for about 20 minutes when I get a call from the doctor. Oldest Child does, in fact, have strep throat. And in her words, "it's a pretty contagious strand of it!" Did I mention he's AT PRESCHOOL?
Friday: I didn't leave the house all day.
I mean, I'm blogging on a Friday night. Jealous? I was so sick of Oldest Child that I sent him to Sears with his dad to get him out of my hair. He was wearing a t-shirt that was two sizes too small and church dress pants. Ask me if I even care. Hopefully they'll bring back chocolate. I wouldn't bet on it though.
