He can NEVER go out of town again.

Marc, that is. Just about every time he leaves for any given amount of time something will go wrong.
In the past I have had a kitchen fire, a burst pipe flooding the laundry room and family room, a broken air conditioner again causing flooding just at the other end of the house, been rushed to the hospital via ambulace in the middle of the night, had to have a cat put to sleep, had a runaway pet tarantula (while I was 8 months pregnant), had a car blow a tire on a country back road, been sick w/ the Flu, a pipe come off the washing machine spewing water everywhere, flooding my kitchen, powder room, and den, had a flat battery stranding me at home and Victoria at school. These are just a few things that scramble to the front of my mind, but believe me there are more, WAAAAAAY more and then yesterday was no different.
Victoria needed a ride to school and Reagan had an 8:20am Dr appt, I was thinking that was all perfect timing, so I made sure Ben was ready for school, set the timer for 10 mins so he would know when to leave for the school bus and off I went w/ the 2
girls, well 1/2 way to school Victoria's cell phone started ringing (thank God she just got that) she answered it and I saw her face drop as we heard bawling on the other end, she handed me the phone and it was Ben, in the 5 mins since we had left he'd gotten wracked w/ the most awful stomach pains, he was screaming he hurt so bad, here I was in the van thinking "Shit, I need to get V to school, and R to the Dr but obviously need to get to him A.S.A.P and Marc was in Chicago, so I broke all the spped limits, got Victoria to school, blew home and grabbed Ben, had him get in the van and figured I had to get Rea to the Dr and if he was still really bad the Dr could check him out too. By the time we got to the Drs his pain had subsided somewhat, he looked pale but not like he did 10 mins prior, by the tiime we were done, he was back to feeling just A.OK and ready to go to school. My guess is he had a really bad gas pain.
It would be really nice if one of these days Marc would be in town to help me out when these situations arise, oh and incidentally when I got back from the Dr's office, there was a message on the answering machine from Marc and here's what he said "Hey Hon, it's your lucky day, I got an earlier flight and should be home at about 8:30 tonight." .... Yep, it was my lucky day alright, at least I was guaranteed that from 8:30pm on life would run w/out a hitch LOL.

Calgon, take me away

Ben has had a Staph infection in his top lip this week, Tuesday afternoon we ended up in the hospital as the Drs thought he was going septic, thankfully he wasn't but his body was having a tough time dealing. Today he's so much better and has even eaten 3 square meals, this is the first day he's really eaten since last Saturday.
During this time Reagan has been acting a little 'off' I put it down to all that was going on here w/ Ben, and Marc been gone, nope she's been fighting off a cold, now her body knows I can give her 100% , she's come down w/ a doozey, fever, snotty nose, complaining of a headache and sore throat, the whole 9 yards.
Marc will be home tonight, later than planned, but I think I'm going to give him 24 hrs notice and take myself somewhere for an hour of Penny time, the craft section at the library seems to have my name on it right now.

Happy Birthday to me.

RedBooks Shuistology tells me: " Oh, my goodness, the cosmos has a gigantic planetary party planned for you ! Whatever you focus your attentions on, you will manifest. It's importantfor you to know that you can - and are - now materializing your goals.
For nine days, beginning on your Birthday, write this mantra in red ink nine times a day: "Everything I have been looking for now comes looking for me." Repeat this aloud and silently as often as you can. This will be your birthday gift to you ! This month is a dress rehearsal for the activity, energy, and good fortune that are waiting around the corner. You asked for it, you got it !! And just wait until you see how much of "it" there is in store. "

Sounds pretty good huh ? Now I just have to find some red ink ;-)
