Three years, eight months, and two days 

without Barney being watched in my house. Then the Girl got sick and was watching tv non-stop when she wasn't sleeping. And she happened to see Barney. And liked it. Now she wants to watch it every day. What's a Barney hating mother to do?

She's willing to give up watching one of her other shows in her allotted tv time in order to watch it.  I can't stand this! There has to be something I can do to rid my house of this big purple menace! I just haven't figured out what it is yet.

Two little whirlwinds 

The Girl's playroom and bedroom looked like they were hit by a tornado yesterday. Wait, make that two tornados or just two little whirlwinds named the Girl and M.  The Girl's best friend, M, came over yesterday and they were so thrilled to see each other. We haven't seen M in about three weeks due to all our illnesses. She's been begging to see him every day.

So, C came over with M and his baby brother so the kids could play. The Girl and M can really make a mess when they play. But they play so well together that we can handle the mess. Although they did manage to injure each other in true Stooges fashion. The Girl came running through the connecting bath and out of her room while M was running down the hall and into the room. You could hear them hit. Much crying ensued. Later, the Girl got a phone call from M. It was quite cute to hear him ask to speak with her. He apologized for running into her and she also said she was sorry. They then talked about what fun they had, said they loved each other and hung up. It was quite sweet.

And I ended up with a cleaner playroom! All in all, a very good day.

It's your birthday! 

Happy 37th birthday to my favorite Aggie! And yes, for those of you doing the math at home/work, he's four years younger than me. I robbed the cradle. Actually, I was just following in his family's tradition. The Aggie's mom is one year older than his dad. His sister is four years older than her husband. And his paternal grandmother was older than his grandfather.

And really, can it be called robbing the cradle if I was 36 and he was 32 when we got married? I think not.

So, happy birthday, hon! I love ya!

Miss Crabbypants 

Thank goodness the Girl is getting better. She has never been as sick as she was this week. But five days of fever makes for a very cranky girl.  Oh, she has been so, so crabby, whiny, and crying at the drop of a hat.
I love my Girl dearly, but having her back to normal is going to be very good for my mental health. The crabbiness and the constant need to sit by me or in my lap have been very wearing.
Now if we can just stay well for the rest of the summer!

House of germs 

In an attempt to keep anyone else from getting sick again, I washed all the sheets this weekend. I also washed the mattress cover and pillows from our bed. The Aggie and I are doing better, although I still have not gotten over my drug reaction yet.

However, the Girl is now ill. Do you know what 105 degrees feels like on a small child? Her whole body gets extremely hot to the touch. Thankfully she doesn't seem to have my aspirin allergy and can take Motrin which works fairly well. I never thought I'd be happy to see her temperature at 101 but when it comes down to that or 105, I go for 101.

The doc said she may have what I had so he put her on antibiotics. I sure hope they kick in soon because a sick Girl is not a fun Girl.

One of these days I'll be well 

And I know everyone will be happy about that because you won't have to listen to my illness woes. The cough is pretty much gone, thank goodness. The joint pain cleared up which was a relief. Now, new side effects! Sleeplessness - I hate lying awake for over two hours trying to fall asleep. Rash - I have some funky rash on my chest. Why can't I just react normally to medicine?

In other news, I think the Girl has a hollow leg. She ate four bowls of oatmeal for breakfast. This is two more than her usual helping. Maybe she's in for a growth spurt or trying to catch up with her S cousins. My niece is 11 years old and is three inches shorter than me. I think I'll be looking up to her by the time she's 13.

Bring out yer dead! 

Medicine is supposed to make you feel better, not worse. Wouldn't you know that I'm one of the people that gets joint pain from my antibiotic? And I've twice gone beyond the gag reflex while coughing. And I can now provide proof that having a c-section doesn't exempt you from incontinence while coughing up a lung.

I semi-seriously asked the Aggie to push me off a cliff earlier so I could go on the dead wagon. He just laughed at me.

I'll remember this laughter.

Put me out of my misery 

Just shoot me now or push me off a cliff. I'm so tired of being sick. Coughing so hard that you gag is not fun. And to have pink eye on top of this, such a joy. The Girl's cough seems to be coming back too. Not a good week in Kelliloo's house.

I've since been to the doctor who didn't want to shake my hand, amazing, I know. Anyway, had to go down for a chest xray and it turns out I have a small triangle of pneumonia on my upper right lung. I asked if it was because I went to the beach right after I got done with a sinus infection. He said it was possible, but really, you just never know with pneumonia. So, now I'm on antibiotics for 10 days and eyedrops til the pinkeye clears up. I'm so ready to be well.
