One of those days

Over the weekend Jacob became very fussy and irritable. I was concerned because he was just finishing up antibiotics on Saturday for an ear infection. Then last night while we were at our church appreciation night they had to bring him to me because he wouldn't calm down... he never gets like this so I knew something was wrong. I called and scheduled an appointment for this afternoon right after Josh got out of school.

As I was loading Seth and Jacob in the car I realized I didn't have my purse. No big deal, we were 15 minutes early. I ran back in to grab it and it wasn't there. Then I started panicking because it was nowhere to be seen! Ugh, where was it? I called Jeff to see if maybe he brought it in and put it somewhere last night. It was very possible as we were trying to get three very tired kids in the house at 10:00! He had no idea where it was. That's when it hit me... I left it in the booth at McDonald's yesterday afternoon. What was I thinking??

So I ran to get Josh from school and as he got in the car he announced "Sorry Mom, I lost my lunch bag today." How could I even get upset or say anything since I had lost my purse? I guess he comes by it honestly, huh? We headed to McDonald's and spoke to the manager. He had found it yesterday and put it in the safe. Thank goodness! So on the way to the doctor I called the credit card company and reported that my card may have been compromised. (Yes, fellow FPU graduates, I have a credit card... shhhh, don't tell Mark and Julie!) So they closed the account and informed me that we actually had a $27 credit for some reason. Cool!

We actually made it to the doctor's office a couple minutes ahead of schedule. Thank you Lord! The doctor said Jacob's ear still looked pretty bad and put him on a stronger antibiotic. Hopefully this will knock it out once and for all. Pray for the little guy!

Poor little man:( I hope he gets better!

I've been having a week of breaking things myself:O I've broken our blender, coffee pot, a candle holder and a cake plate! I think the Lord wants me to be more understanding when my little ones break things.... or maybe I need to slow down a bit:)

Hope better days are ahead for you:)

You've been found out!!!! Glad you found your purse girlie. Hey, I've left my debit card in the ATM machine. Luckily it sucked it up and shredded it but it's a pain to have to wait for a new one.

Oh so sad! I hope he gets over that ear infection soon. Not fun. Glad your purse was safe and back in your possession. Us mom's have days like that but make it through anyway!

It's not like you haven't been under a little stress lately! Cut yourself some slack...God was watching out for you!

PTL your purse was safe and the manager had put it in the safe for you. Praying for you to be able to handle the rest of the week and little JAcob ears heal fast.

Poor little Jacob... no fun when a little one can't kick an illness!

Thank you God for sweet blessings like your purse being a-ok and found money.

I can't believe that I didn't see it either. I think that we were all so tired that day that we could have lost anything and not know. Love ya! Don't sweat it!
