I’ve missed blogging about the goings-on around here, but it has been quite pitiful. I went to the urgent care clinic yesterday afternoon because I was showing all the symptoms of having strep throat. ugh
It’s been 15 or 20 years since I’ve suffered from this vile illness, but it still sucks. Doc gave me a prescription for penicillin and sent me on my way. Damn you, Walmart, for making me wait 40 minutes to get it filled!
At least I got to enjoy a Frosty while I waited. That made my throat feel a bit better.
My Mom is so wonderful. She got Violet into her pajamas, brushed her teeth and read her a book before leaving us alone. All I had to do was read the last book and get Violet into bed. Thanks, Mom!
Unfortunately, Violet wasn’t so sympathetic. She made me get out of bed several — like, 6 — times last night because she was crying. I don’t know what’s going on with her lately. Sometimes it’s obvious she had a bad dream, but she won’t or can’t tell me what is wrong. Other times…. other times, I just want to strangle her. Do people let their two-and-a-half-year-olds cry it out still? I tried that — she can come out of her bedroom now. It’s pathetic. Any suggestions?
Anyway, I feel a bit better, but not well enough to do anything crafty. Hopefully tomorrow I can do something fun. Check back in. I promise I’ll have something [fairly] interesting soon!
