Quick post before bed.

So, it has not been the best, or the worst, week so far around here. I am now sick (head type cold), tired from multiple night wake-ups, and stressed from doing it all on my own! Although I can't say it is all on my own now, as I did hire a P/T Nanny last week... why didn't I do this sooner???? I have asked her to come nice and early tomorrow to help me out at the worst time around here... getting out the door to school! So, I will just be taking Bug, and leaving Monkey, and Little Man here with her. I'm hoping that by having her come a few mornings like this that I can reduce my stress a lot. It will go down much more when Hubby finally comes home, which won't be for another 3.5 weeks.

I was informed by Monkey last night, after I gave the ultimatum of 'Sit at the table, and eat your dinner, or go to bed', that He is going to Hate me Forever, and Live with Grandma Forever! I told him it was fine if he hated me, but that he would not be living with Grandma. Crazy Monkey LOL. This from the boy whom I found curled up in my bed the other night when I went to get in, he stayed the whole night with me snuggled up. That has not happened in a very, very long time.

Little Man finally got into see the ENT (Ear, Nose, Throat) Dr this afternoon. Since we haven't had any ear infections since October, I figured he would just send us on our way. Well, that isn't exactly what happened. Little Man has fluid bulging in his ears (which would explain the frequent screaming at night lately), thankfully not infected though. Due to the fluid, and the history of ear infections, he wants him to get tubes put in his ears. We are scheduled for surgery May 5th. Prior to the surgery, we will see the Dr again to see how his ears are doing. If they are better, he may postpone surgery... we just have to wait and see.

I know this is a simple easy surgery, not as bad as when Monkey had a testicle retracted last year, but it doesn't mean that it isn't freaking me out! I felt like crying on the drive home. At this point I don't know for sure whether Hubby will be home at that time or not, but we probably won't know until a few days before. So, I will be making sure I have back-up sitters available for Monkey, and Bug while I am with Little Man.

This just freaking sucks!


  1. OMG 3.5 weeks until hubby gets home...on the bright side, you have a P/T nanny...good for you. I am trying to justify a P/T nanny to my hubby who is home every night and never has to hes not buying into my plan just

  2. Yah, he won't leave for India till Saturday, then directly to New Mexico from there.... yuck! Good luck with the Nanny thing LOL. Hubby and I have talked about it for a very long time, but I couldn't justify it with me home... but now with him gone so much, it's a much needed resource!
