Oh, for crying out loud already.  
I was so close.

So bloody close.

All week last week the kiddos were home(curse you, spring break), then the weekend came around, hubby nowhere to be found(going to fantasy baseball drafts, NRA banquets-don't get me started- and fishing), the boys BOUNCING off the freaking walls...  but I could see the light at the end of the tunnel, right?  Monday morning.  Like a beacon, beckoning a drowning man.

Mixed metaphors aside, I was really looking forward to today.  Sending their little selves to school.  And the oldest wakes up with what might be pinkeye and strep, but what is probably allergies.  The doctor said to keep him home today, just in case.  

*insert curse word here* (the big, double barrelled ones that I probably used in college)

I'm on the verge of hysteria, don't you know.  

You'll all hear the explosion from where you are, if they aren't well enough to go to bloody school by tomorrow. *growls*

I have a fun afternoon ahead of me, making bloody dog's ears (it's a black, sick & twisted comedy) buying wax and writing a dozen 4 page handwritten letters.  I also have to photoshop a picture of my dog to put on the set. Theatre is so weird.

What are you doing today?

Oh, I'm making some bloody dog's ears.  You know, the usual.  

The actors (talking props!) are supposed to be off book tonight (memorized).  It's a two hour, four person show.  You do the math.  I think it'll probably be painful.  "Line!"

Okay...  send 'well' thoughts to Ethan, as I might resort to drastic measures involving bungee cords and duct tape if he has to stay home tomorrow, too.

*sends postive vibes* I'm sure you're right, and that is is only allergies. Mine had a conniption going from a climate that is moist to a severely dry one and back again.

Besides, how do you know that he really didn't jab himself in the eye repeatedly, or make himself cry? These are merely suggestions. The sore throat? Merely a figment of his imagination.

Yeah, he's a little dramatic, to be sure.
Probably faking.
He's definitely going to school tomorrow. ;)

Yes, you know they arne't that sick when they are running around from place to place, instead of being in bed.

"I'm better now." Is a very popular phrase I've been told. But I'm sure as soon as you ask them to do anything, they're back on their deathbed.

He's seven. I don't ask him to do much.

But he's been bouncing off the walls all day. He's SO not sick. Going straight to school tomorrow. Do not pass go, do not collect $200.

I meant, clean up your room, pick up your toys, type thing.

Now when he's sick do you keep your other little one home as well?
Carrie Leigh: cliffs of insanitycarrie_leigh on March 19th, 2007 10:26 pm (UTC)
The other one just goes to school two days a week. Preschool. He just turned 5. He'll start kindergarten in the fall. *throws confetti*

I'm sure you'll miss him though when he's not around. Deep down that is. You'll miss him as a being and not his hyperness.
Carrie Leigh: cliffs of insanitycarrie_leigh on March 19th, 2007 10:37 pm (UTC)
Oh absolutely. But it's not as if he'll be going to military school. It's just 8am-1pm. I can probably suck it up through that. ;)
shady121 on March 19th, 2007 10:38 pm (UTC)
Will your oldest be in the second grade then? Gotta love the 8-1 schedule.
Carrie Leigh: cliffs of insanitycarrie_leigh on March 20th, 2007 04:13 am (UTC)
Yup. Ethan will be in second next year, Aaron in kindergarten. It will be another full year before they'll both go all day.

I hope he'll be well soon, for his sake and yours *g*

Mee, too! Argh!

Best wishes for your son's physical health, and for your mental health!

Thanks! I appreciate it!

How perfectly taunty to have the first day of semester arriving just in time to save your sanity and Ethan to get sick *hugs you* I hope he's well enough to go to school tomorrow *crosses fingers*
Carrie Leigh: cliffs of insanitycarrie_leigh on March 19th, 2007 10:25 pm (UTC)
Oh, he'll go.... It's that or I go crazy. And I'm not gonna go quietly.

Good luck! I swear the sick kid thing has been my life since Christmas break. Hang in there, this too shall pass!

ARGH! *sends wellness vibes to Ethan* Ethan, please get better, we need your mummy sane. Best of luck for everything!
