|EXCELLENT timing by the way, nasty virus. KUDOS!|
There's a reason you may have noticed I've been scarce this week; not responding to comments, not visiting your blogs, being generally M.I.A.
but, not the sexy kind of M.I.A. like this:
hey everyone! LET'S DANCE!
Wow! That was FUN!
Oh wait, I don't feel any better.
Okay, so this is pretty much more stress than I can take. Ella is covered in a rash, with a throat so sore when she eats or drinks anything, it feels like everything is "burning." At first I thought she just had a bad cold, that was making her eczema worse.
And then the rash got really bad!
|YOU'RE GONNA NEED AN OCEAN OF CALAMINE LOTION...|
Please. Please can someone get that song out of my head?
It's been stuck in there for DAYS and I can't take it anymore!!!
So, off to the doctor she went, and he thinks she has "hand, foot and mouth disease." I pretty much agree that that's what it must be. So, it's a nasty virus that has to run its course.
Big deal, right? Kids get viruses. Sure, they gets lots of viruses and nasty little yucks because they put their PEE PEE KA KA HANDS ON EVERY THING and they SHUN SOAP. AND THEN THEY PUT THEIR FECAL COLIFORM HANDS IN THEIR LITTLE YAPS AND THEY SLURP THOSE GERMS UP.
Fine, fine. We know all about this as parents. Only, there's a couple of problems. First, today is the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL. Ella is missing it. She also missed yesterday. And I'm so exhausted that I did not make it out to get the teachers any little token of my appreciation.
Oh, and see this dress?

THIS is Ella's FLOWER GIRL DRESS. We have a family wedding to go to on Sunday.

It's an hour out of town. Ella's dress is gorgeous. Jack has a little rental tuxedo. The Man is THE BEST MAN. I have a really cute little black dress and...and..
SPARKLY SHOES, PEOPLE. I HAVE SPARKLY SHOES. I have shoes so good that I can't wait to unveil them to you. And, I have a lot of BLING to wear!
Not that much bling...but I have a lot of bling.
So, we never get to go anywhere and do couple-y things. Hell, we have CHILDREN, THAT'S THE WAY IT BE'S. I don't know when will be the next time I get to work my SEXY DISCO look. My dad had even planned to drive up to Suburban Hell, pick up the kids, and bring them back home so The Man and I could actually enjoy the reception.
All kinds of fun relatives from England are here! They were coming over tonight for a party. Right now I have TWO pots of Italian sausage, meatballs and sauce waiting to be poured into bags to go into the FREEZER, because our house is filled with THE PLAGUE and nobody's coming now.
Okay, that's enough talk. We'll see what happens I guess. Right now I think I'll go have some Doritos and that last MAGIC PILL for breakfast.
