Brett left yesterday for another two week stint in Arizona. I'm getting used to it. Well, as "used to it" as a woman can get being left alone with three adorable terrors.
Normally my biggest problem when Brett is gone: sleeping. I just can't sleep without his sharp elbows stabbing into my spine. Awww, sweet stabbing pains, where would I be without you?
Awake, that's where. But luckily I had a horrible migraine-imitating-meningitis on Friday, so I have a bottle of valium, and I have to say, it really helps my sleep situation. I wish I could say the same for the headache.
10:00 rolled around last night and I was O-U-T.
Unfortunately, 3:00 A.M. rolled around and a blood curdling scream ripped through my sweet subconscious (I was dreaming I was Samwise and I was helping Frodo climb the Rocky Mountains...it was actually a nice dream). Kembry comes running into my bedroom with a horrible stomach ache.
Now while this little girl has a knack for the drama, I could tell something was horribly wrong. So after a trip to the bathroom (bad diarrhea, you're welcome) she came to lay and moan in bed with me. I kept my hand on her belly because she said it felt good. Then I felt some bubbles, so I decided to massage them the way you do to a babies belly to help move them alone.
I pushed down and massaged them, let go, and whoa she screamed like a Banshee.
Only one thing could cause that much referred pain. The Appendix.
Sure enough, she had a fever. Instead of calling 911 like I really wanted to do, I just laid with her. She fell asleep in my arms. I watched her sleep for two hours until 5 o'clock, she woke up and puked all over my bed.
"I feel much better mom!" she said, and hopped off to bed.
YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!
So now I had to wash my sheets, and I got stuck out on the couch, too tired to remake the bed.
This was followed by horrible dreams of my house burning down with Chloe inside and Brett telling me he was having an affair with several different women.
Yay for Brett being in Arizona!
Kill me now.
It's definitely a Big Gulp kind of morning.
