I think Owen has developed cellulitis again. I’ll be calling the doctor on Monday.
Can we get through just one month without some kind of major illness occurring? Apparently not.
I am currently in the midst of a blinding, throbbing, mind numbing migraine. I can barely see, and thinking is clearly out of the question. Ow. This has been going on since about 9am. I’ve already taken 2 extra strength tylenol (quick disolve). Then I forgot and took a Tylenol 3 for my knee. Of course that was around 2pm, so I think it should have worn off by now.
Oops, my bad.
At 7:45 I had an MRI for my knee and knee pain. Around 3 or so the doctor called to tell me that I have "fluid in my left knee, but no torn ligaments". I’ve been instructed to keep taking OTC pain medicine (DOES NOT WORK) and icing the knee. And if it still hurts in a week to call back to schedule me for some Physical Therapy. Oh, joy!
I had PT a few years ago (actually back in 1999 to be exact) for the tendonitis I had developed in my right arm. I don’t know how I got it exactly, but it hurt real bad. The PT did nothing for me. All it did was make the pain in my arm WORSE. I eventually stopped going because it was a waste of time in my book. Plus it was senior year, and I had tons of school work, a part time job, a social life, and better things to spend time on. My arm still gets stiff every now and then, usually when it rains or is cold or I lift heavy stuff. I can’t hold Gabby or Owen for any extended period of time or my arm throbs to the point that it feels like it will fall off. Thank god they are both able to walk on their own now. When I had to use the baby carrier my shoulder would burn from the weight.
But I digress…..
The kids have picked up the scent of my migraine. You know how dogs can sense fear? My kids can sense when I’m sick or in pain and they conspire to make the most noise/be the most irritating little brats they possibly can be. They were just running up and down the hallway screaming
"EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! eeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEeeeeee! EEEEEEEEEEEEEE! *giggle* EEEEEEE *hysterical laughing*" All the while they are really thinking to themselves "Wow, this will piss off Mommy!" As I speak now, they are fighting over some toy and Owen just came over to scream in my face. "MINE, no MINE, MINE MINE MINE"
Oh and before, Owen knocked over his dresser on its side in his bedroom, nice huh?
OK, BEDTIME KIDDOS.
Anyway. I think its kind of neat how the Baby Pens (W-Barre/Scranton Penguins) and the Pittsburgh Pens are both in the hockey finals. The Baby Pens which are the farm team of Pittsburgh just started the Calder Cup series tonight in Chicago. The Pittsburgh Pens are down 2-1 games vs the Detroit Red Wings in the Stanley Cup series. Normally, I don’t give two shits about hockey, but I just found it kinda cool how Pennsylvania is rocking that bitch.
I was going to write more, but my head is pounding, so I’m going to attempt to get the brats to bed and go lay down.
I forgot to post this a few days ago when I seen it, but it still is funny as hell:
WILKES-BARRE – City police reported the following incidents:
• Police said Andrew R. Tostevin, 19, of Coopersburg, was found hanging upside down from a tree at North Main and North streets at about 12:36 a.m. Thursday. Police said Tostevin told officers that the tree attacked him. Police said Tostevin was heavily intoxicated and was taken to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital.
Rock on! I’m missing out on all of the good stuff up here.
I received my "official" Luzerne County Reassessment notice for our new house. My taxes will be going down approximately 1100 dollars. Since my taxes are escrowed into the mortgage this is EXTREMELY TERRIFIC SUPER HAPPY news. My mortgage will be going down. Yay!!!! I’m not sure of the exact amount, I have to sit down and figure out all of the exact numbers. Even if my mortgage goes down by 1 dollar I’ll be happier than a pig in shit.
Of course this means (I’m guessing), my mortgage in Lee Park will probably go up 1100 dollars now in return so I basically break even. We’ll see. Hanover Township property values were not sent out yet.
Ok time to go. Gabby and Owen are going to Grandma’s now and I’m super thrilled. Even though I’m extremely dizzy and sick to my stomach and feel like barfing at any moment.
Hey, I’ll take what I can get.
You’d think after telling your husband 8 million times NOT to leave the doors to the main bathroom open, or the door to the bedroom (which has a bathroom off of it) open that it would SINK INTO HIS THICK SKULL.
Owen likes to play with the toilet brush and toilet water, and also unravel all of the toilet paper.
He just left the house to go to an all day bachelor party, which *supposedly* doesn’t have strippers *cough*YEAH RIGHT*cough* and left the door to the bathroom (in the bedroom) open.
Guess where Owen was?
He threw one of my Glamour magazines in the toilet. That was fun to fish out, let me tell you. I’m so mad right now, that I am seriously thinking of making signs for each of that bathroom doors that say "PLEASE CLOSE WHEN FINISHED."
Of all things, I always make sure I close all of the bathroom doors when finished using the bathroom. Is it that difficult to understand? Is it that hard to remember to close a door? The truth is, it is. I’ve yelled at him at least 10 times about closing the doors to the bathrooms, but it doesn’t fucking sink in. It doesn’t click. I think that part of his brain is missing.
Yes, so I’m stuck in the house by myself with the kids for yet ANOTHER day. I’m envious of all of you people that possess actual LIVES, and are able to go out and do stuff independently. By the way, the kids are taking turns jumping off of the couch again and going "BOOM". I think I’m going to go insane.
