First of all -- just a little clarification from yesterday, I did not leave my children unattended for three and a half hours. I'm not retarded, but thanks for the vote of confidence.
I'm not going to defend myself and my writing on my own blog, but I must say that person* got my panties in a knot with the sheer notion that I neglected my kids.
But then I got really excited -- my first piece of hate mail! FINALLY! It's about damn time, isn't it? It took well over a year. It makes me almost want to send them a gift, I'm so happy.
I'm still running a fever, but it's down to a much healthier 101.6. And now my nose is dripping (I think it's having a contest with the bathroom sink).
Both boys are coughing and I've had to shove their lungs back in on more than one occasion.
(You're a horrible mom! They need to have their lungs surgically placed back!)
Today is Friday, which means Work In Progress. Um, yeah. Between the garage sale last week and The Flu That Has Made Me The "Worst Mom EVER" (does that mean I get a trophy? I've never received a trophy before and I so desperately want one), not much creativity has been happenin' around here.
But the boys and I did manage to make some Halloween garlands...
Aaron should come home tonight, but his plane doesn't land until 11 p.m. And I'm making an appointment to go to my alternative doctor and get an I.V. bag tomorrow.
Which makes me so seriously excited. The I.V. bags knock the shit out of you... they have something like 1,000 time your daily allotment of vitamin C and other nutrients and it really helps me get over crap faster.
I've had a lot of people comment about how sick we get. Yeah, we get sick a lot. Back in the spring the boys and I had a blood test to see how our immune systems were functioning and all three were way below normal. On May 1st, I got the immune booster shot, to test it out, and had an allergic reaction to it, so the boys will not get it.
Believe it or not, I'm not as sick as I could be, so that shot is working.
But yes, we get sick a lot. It's part of our charm.
* Edited to add: I received an email, not in comments. Sorry for any confusion.
