Insert Deep Dramatic Sigh Here

You won't believe what Julie has on her arm from yesterday. A hickey. Yep. You read that right. She was "bored" in class and decided to suck on her arm. Its absolutely huge. She must have run out of flavour in that arm because she started in on the other one. Honestly. I am not naive... I always knew the day would come when my daughter would come home with a hickey. I just didn't ever expect it to be self imposed at the age of seven.

Sigh.

I am not feeling well. I have lost my voice and Ian keeps teasing me. I am sore all over and very tired. Yesterday I went to my mom's as usual and she took the children to school and then sent me to bed. I slept from 9:30 until 2:00. I didn't know I needed that much rest.

Sigh.

Today I stayed home with the full intent of getting some clutter spots cleared out. Jordan was a dream all day but I felt so run down I didn't accomplish anything. Then at 5:10 Jordan started screaming and crying for an hour. Nothing I did would settle her down. I've endured her fussy periods before but this was something entirely off the charts. She was absolutely inconsolable. I figured she had gas so I was walking the floor with her and alternating between patting and rubbing while she screamed louder and louder. Pretty soon we were both crying! Finally she burped and then let out this huge sigh of relief and then sank against my shoulder. Poor thing.

Sigh.

Ian is going to run me a bubble bath and then I will go to bed early. I have so much to do around here and I don't have time to be sick.

  1. I'm glad Jordan is feeling better! Nothing like a big belch to ease the tummy!
