Not again...

Remember my last post where I talked about loosing my mind when I left my purse at McDonald's? Well, I've proven once again that I don't have any brain cells left!

Yesterday Seth woke up with pink eye in both eyes! I called right away to make him an appointment and they said come in at 4:15. We got there and Seth decided to come through the front of the van to get out. So he hops up in my seat, hops out, locks the door and shuts it all before I could blink. Oh believe me people, he really is that fast! Thank the Lord I had the sliding door open still. Well, in all the commotion I set the keys down as I was getting Jake out and forgot to pick them up.

It turns out he has double pink eye or conjunctivitis whatever you want to call it and a double ear infection! Poor little guy, I felt horrible that I didn't even know his ears were hurting! We loaded up on prescriptions for antibiotics, eye drops and ear drops and headed out the door. It was then I realized I didn't have my keys. I walked out to the van to confirm it and found them laying right next to Jacob's seat. So Jeff came about 45 minutes later and bailed me out! I'm so glad to have a wonderful husband who takes care of me and doesn't make me feel even more stupid when I do these things!

Anyway, I need to say thanks to Patti for picking up Josh from school and watching him while this whole circus took place. She also fed him dinner with her family since I didn't get there until after 6:00! It's awesome to have such great friends around.

Plus, Grandma came and brought us each a drink and a snack to help us pass the time as we waited for Daddy... how great is she?

Memories! Just when you think life can't get any crazier...you get another little surprise! You handle it all with such a good attitude!

I like how Seth described having "a headache in his ear"! Too cute!

Stacey, you are a blessed woman indeed! Thoughtful man, wonderful friends and a fun mom... really you can't ask for more... well maybe just some alleviation in the sickness department, but that's it.

Maybe when the boys are all well, you and Jeff could go out for a relaxing time. Sounds as if you could use a little mini-break, even for a few hours.

"Headache in his ear" - now, he's smart! I hope everyone there gets well soon and that you can get a nice break! I still owe you an email! I'll write back soon (I'm so far behind on emails!!).

I feel bad for the little guy. But wow he is a trooper. He is so busy but soooo cute. You can't help but squeeze him and love him.

You need to write these things down for the next Writer's Strike, and turn these in to the sitcom's.
