Freight Train

All I can say is, what a week. And not in a good way.

Work has been crazy busy (which actually is good). And, I have been able to work from home a bit, which is also good, because:

Molly has had a horrific diaper (yeast) rash. The OTC stuff didn’t work, so we switched to prescription cream. Still not working, so off we went to the doctor’s office and he prescribes a different cream. This stuff is $250 a tube!!! Luckily we have insurance and got it at the bargain price of $90. (Can you see the sarcasm dripping from my mouth? Yes? Good. I actually had two co-workers say “$90? Can’t you just use Boudreaux’s? Please, don’t you think I tried that FIRST?!?!) Well, guess what? The new stuff is not working either. She is in so much pain she screams at diaper changes. She’s sleeping without diaper or pants (don’t even get me started on laundry) and still it’s not going away.

While Molly’s issues are going on, BB has had a stomach virus. Of course, the first time school called and said she had a stomach ache, I told them her sister had an appt and she wanted to come, so have her stay at school please. Then she threw up on her desk. Great, should I hold my breath until I get my Mom of the Year Award? Didn’t think so. Poor Chiamom was babysitting the girls after school so that I could go back to work in the evening after Molly’s doctor visit and BB got sick all over the bathroom floor! (Thanks mom for your help – all I can say is that your reward in heaven will be great!) Later she got sick in the other bathroom as well.

Oh, did I forget to mention J has been out of town for all of this? Yeah, he’s been in Tampa since Saturday. So, his homecoming Wednesday night was a naked baby in a bed full of urine, a daughter puking her guts out, and a wife on the floor in the bathroom cleaning up the puke with bleach. Welcome home dear!

A very dear friend of ours is having some serious legal issues. I want to be able to help and am very frustrated that I can’t. J has been able to help some, but because he’s been out of town so it’s been difficult for him to do any more. But, this person is on my mind and in my prayers.

BB’s Spa birthday party is this weekend. I’m still a little concerned about guests not showing up, especially now that I know there’s a stomach virus going around. Tomorrow we are supposed to go shopping for the snacks to serve at the party. Should be fun. And then her birthday is Tuesday (With cake and ice cream at 7. Consider this your official reminder.)

All I can say is Lambert owes ME big time! (Can we say puke?!) I hope he remembers this next Christmas!
