Copy of Email I sent to Patrick somes up my day pretty well.
I’m sorry I made you worry. I didn’t really get much of a chance today to actually just sit and write you. Ok that’s kind of a lie, but it’s just hard to write an email or do anything that requires alot of thought when the kids are running around.
I ended up staying up ALL night long. I guess writing all those “letters” got me going and I figured I couldn’t sleep. I checked on Lydia at 5am and she still had a fever so I gave her some Children’s Advil and she went to sleep. I got online and found a number for Pediatrics and it said they would be open from 8am – 11am on Saturday so I called right at 8am and got an appointment for Lydia. Yeah!! No waiting at the ER, so Timothy was already awake, and I had already taken my shower around 5:30ish and was dressed, so I just had to wake up Lydia and Clarissa and get them dressed and get Timothy dressed and we were out of here by about 8:20 and at the Dr’s by around 8:30am. Pretty good time I might add.
Well, the Dr. did a throat swab and they tested it for strep and she didn’t have strep. Yeah! Dr. mentioned something about shots if it was strep. Ewwww… So, we ended up getting out of their around 11am which isn’t too bad for a trip to the Dr on a weekend without a prior appointment. 3hrs has got to be a record. So, we were all hungry so we went to Wendy’s and I gave Lydia her medicine than. It taste GnASTY!!!! Ewwww…!!! I can see why she wants to through up after she takes it. But she ate and took her other medicine and she was ok. Than I ran into Pearl and ordered new lenses for my glasses, and than to the LDS bookstore and bought a couple piano books. So that when we have FHE we can sing the songs together.
I had told the kids we would use that money that Aunt Susan gave us to get them each something for being helpful (which they all still owe me by the way…Grrr). So we went to Target and Lydia got this thing that has double sided hard pastic plates with a sort of engraving of Barbie in different outfits you can mix and match and than you put it in a thingy and a piece of paper over it and use a black crayon to make a picture that you can color in. Timothy bought a Transform which he was WHINING about wanting so he can play with the other boys at school. (Our kids are spoiled, but I remember how bad it felt to not ever have anything the other kids had, or even when I finally did they realized how happy I was about it so they teased me about what I had. ANYWAY…) Clarissa got…Guess?? WHat does Clarissa usually ALWAYS get when we go get a toy? Did ya guess? Right… A NEW Baby. *GIggles* She’s such a Mommy. She’s kind of bossy though. Not sure where she gets that. *Looks VERY innocent.* OH I bought stuff for me too. I bought a Mic/headset combo so I can use Teamspeak on DAoC. Also I had heard about these Nancy Drew Mystery PC games and I bought one that had 2 games in it. So we came home and told the kids they had to have quiet time for a little while since I KNEW Lydia looked tired and would probably fall asleep and she did.
So, around 5ish Lydia woke up and we ate dinner. I started getting REALLY tired around 7ish so I HAD to go lay down. I got up at 8ish and gave Lydia her second dose of GnASTY! medicine and than told them they could stay up and watch Pixel perfect because I know they had wanted to. I would have stayed up with them, but I was Tired. So I went back to bed. Well, around 10ish Timothy came in and told me that Lydia just threw up. Ewww… Wonderful. Good thing she was in the bathroom and she hit the carpet. 😛 Can wish for toilet, but nothing wrong with her hitting the carpet. I got her some fresh water and told her to sip it. I guess I won’t give her anymore GnASTY! Until tomorrow AM. 😦 Not sure what to do to make it taste better. Maybe i’ll see about adding it to juice. Ewwww… I figured her tummy was too upset to try and give her some now, I’d probably be wearing it. Ewwww….
Ok so here I am. I sat down to write you and the dog is groaning at me. 😦 I just had her out before I came down here to write. I have to go clean the bathroom floor down here still. Timothy and CLarissa had the boys (ferrets) out in there and let them run around through their crap it looks like. Ewww… I’ll have to bathe them tomorrow.
Wow, that’s a lot of Ewwww’s in this email. hehe I’m feeling a little better today. I don’t know why. I guess because I felt a little better about writing my congressman I felt like I kind of “Tried” to fix things. I can’t go be looney(ier) , I’m not going to hurt myself, I don’t want you to hurt yourself, so I guess we will just have to enjoy the fact we only have had 8mos together in the past 2 years. WooHoo! I hate the Navy. I don’t care if they pay you a million dollors a day for the rest of our lives I don’t think it’s worth it, but that’s me. I’ve never cared about money. Yes it makes life easier at times, but it’s not required to be happy. Being together making memories, going through the good and the bad times TOGETHER is what I think is worth so much. But, I think the money won’t hurt. 😛 I want a new BIG ring when you retire. 😛 So I can wear it as a Medal of a job well done. Ok I guess a BIG whiney job well done, but a job done anyway.
I hope you slept well, sorry you have the Midnight to 4am watch. That one must hurt the worst? If i’m up i’ll email you and maybe we can “chat”. Sorry I worry you, but I just REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY hate this being apart stuff.
Love you bunches,
