Its been crazy...

...around here, but lets face it, that is nothing new or unusual. Actually, with the last post I was talking about Zoey being sick, um well, we all got sick. Thankfully she was the only one that puked though. By the end of the week, 5 of us had been to the doctor, with the following dx...Zoey- SI and strep, Bradlee- SI (no tonsils so no strep), me-SI and strep(thanks Zo), Mike-URI and SI, Katja-URI and SI. Keith was the only one that did end up with anything, but Im not so sure he is not working on an SI now. He had his tonsils and adnoids removed last spring, so strep is not a fear with him either. So we are all pretty much healed now thankfully.

I have also been working, though not as much as I wish I was. When I am home, its hard to get the computer because the 4 yo wants it...but mom I *have* to get on there to play with the webkinz. How do you explain to an almost 4 yo that you dont have to play with the webkinz? You cant, thats all there is to Then when the other kids get home, they all want to get on the one computer(that is mine) that everyone wants to use. It equals little time for the mom to be on here.

So speaking of the almost 4yo, OMG her birthday is in less than two weeks and I have done nothing to plan a party. Can we all say BAD MOMMA? I have to figure out where it is going to be at before I can do anything, but I have yet to call and check on prices. I really need to get on that so I can get invites into school on Thursday huh? Oh gosh the list of things to do just keeps growing and growing. Oh and Mike set up the Fios TV installation for Zoey's dork. I DO NOT want to be the only one stuck at a party with a bunch of pre-schoolers, but we have no idea what time they are coming to do the installation. I cant make the child wait a week for her party, she will just have a shit fit about it. All we have heard for the last month already is about her birthday. Speaking of that, I need to take that day off work too...dork to myself I

Ok, off to plan a party, will keep everyone updated on that.

Three words parents dread hearing....

....what could they be, I know you are sitting there trying to figure it out. Well, I heard them last night about 4 am..."Mommy, I puked" Zoey woke up and puked out the side of her bed, but miraculously she didnt get any on her jammies or her bed. Oh, and lets be thankful that the girls have hardwood floors in their room. So I have been up since 4 am with a whiney sick little one and have cleaned up more vomit than I ever care too. She is sleeping at the moment, which has happened off and on since she originally got up, but when she is not sleeping she is mostly crying (for any reason you can think of), but really its because she is also burning up with a fever.

The only bad thing with this is in a house of four kids, the big question is who will get it next. I have it narrowed down to two people, Bradlee because he drank out of Zoey's pop last night or Katja because they share a room. This is not the week to do this because I took next Saturday off which means I work like all week, well except for Wednesday because of therapy. Oh and there is that wonderful thing of I cant afford to take a day off, not only because of the money, but because of the stupid points you get if you do.

So, right now I am praying that Zoey is well enough to go to child care tomorrow, and that who ever gets it next doesnt do so until Tuesday night. What a way to start the week....

Well, until something more exciting happens, farewell all.

Missing in action????

So I have been missing in action. This has been a busy week and I just havent had the chance to get on here to post. You are about to learn why....

Science fair projects suck. That should explain a lot of it right Tuesday night, that was the plan. Mike was going to help the boys do their boards on Tuesday night. Yup, that was the Keith forgot all of his science project stuff at school so Mike had to go to the school at 5 and hope that someone was there to let him get into the classroom and get it. Well, thankfully the janitor was still there because Mike was about to blow a gasket (teenager never listens and its getting old).

While they were gone, I decided to look at what Bradlee had done. Now mind you supposedly he had done the experiment and had everything done but finishing typing it up and doing the board. Um sure, he had definitions that he had paraphrased off the internet. I saw no data and nothing that said he did an experiment. Now mind you, I never saw him do his "experiment" in the first place. I came home from work late one night and he was typing up the "results" and had already done the experiment. Of course Mike was home, but he was laying on the couch not paying attention to what was going on, so Im not sure what all Bradlee did, but I dont think he did anything.

So, with Bradlee I had to start all over, at the last minute, to get an experiment done and everything ready. Now this means that I did most of it and was working on it until a little after 11 when I had had enough and just had to stop. We didnt even start on the board until Wednesday, and of course I did most of the work on the whole thing. I just really hate science fair projects because they bring so much stress on the parents, or at least they do in this house.

Now that science fair projects are done, I have just been having issues with the slobs that live in this house. No one picks up after themselves, and then when it comes to actual cleaning, Im the only one that does it for the most part. Occasionally, if I let the house get really messy, it will bug Mike enough that he will do it, but I have to let it go longer than I like to so it doesnt happen often.

Well, Im sure I could come up with more rants, but it is now time for me to go get ready for work. I really hate my job, and another day I might be able to go into detail as to why I hate my job, but now I do not have time. So until then......farewell all.
