Well today was quite the day if I do say so myself.
Aiden had a rough night last night with his asthma so I took him in to the ER this morning to get some stronger asthma meds. The waiting room was full of fellow H1N1 victims and we were all handed masks to wear at the entrance to the hospital. It was interesting to me that I could still tell what mood people were in just by looking at their eyes... you can tell when people smiling without having to see the actual smile.
Ya. I had a lot of time to think. Almost 4 hours.
Poor Aiden fell asleep for about an hour and a half of it and we spent a good 45 mins of it in the actual treatment room... but it was still a long time to wait. I took comfort in knowing that we certainly weren't the only ones waiting. There were about 8 other people that were there when we got there and got called in mere minutes before we did.
Anyway, we got the meds finally and happily went on our way.
Hopefully tonight will go much better for all of us!
The kids have actually done pretty well being stuck at home. This afternoon all three of them coloured together briefly...
Owen loves to colour and is so very cute about it. He has had a remarkably good attitude about the whole thing... except when he is fighting with his brother of course.
Seriously, who's idea was it to make one player only Wii games??? It drives me crazy. Constant fighting over who is getting the longer turn etc. etc. etc.. Seriously game-makers... how hard could it possibly be to make the game 2 players???
Anyway, Owen drew this lovely picture... which is apparently of me dressing up as a witch for Halloween...I've never actually dressed up as a witch for Halloween and this year I was planning on dressing up as an exhausted mommy... I already have the bags under my eyes to match after all.
Olivia was slightly less happy today. She got a fever mid-afternoon and woke up extremely cranky from a too-short nap.
I tried to give her some tylenol for her fever and this is what she said...
Can you hear it?
nnnnnoooooooooooooo I don't want it nooooooooooooo
She was most irritated with me. And the rest of the world for existing.
Aiden did a remarkable job of ignoring her. And Doug looked a little TOO happy to be getting to leave the house to pick up Aiden's prescriptions...
But I figure he deserved to escape since he cleaned our house while I was wasting away in the ER this morning!
And now it is 9:30 pm and all three kids are asleep. Bliss I tell you.
And to top it all off? I got a really lovely email from my dear friend Amanda that just brightened up my day completely!
But wow do I ever need to sleep... so off I go. I'm hoping for 4 hours in a row. :)
