Woe is me and Scarlet Fever AGAIN

  1. My turn to whine. Can you believe it? Emma has scarlet fever AGAIN! I'm going to have to take her to the Quick Care (yuck) because her doctor's office has already closed. They have extended and weekend hours but they closed early this weekend (gee, thanks). LazyBoy furniture is delivering my new sleeper sofa today, cleaning people coming at 3 pm (thank goodness) and I'm really bumming because I JUST CAN'T SEEM TO FIND A GOOD MAN. Do I have a pox on my head? Should I be ringing a bell and living in a french cathedral tower?
    Okay, sorry, I'm done.

    Thank you, all, for being so supportive.

    I must apologize, I sound like a big whiny spoiled cry baby. Notice how it's getting worse only 2 days from my parents upcoming arrival here for their 3 week stay :chuckle
    I looked at my post and thought, there are parents who have no health insurance for their children. There are people who have no home to place a sleeper sofa in. There are people who don't have a home to clean. Why am I whining? Geez, I feel so "stoopid".

    You guys are wonderful for being there, not saying "LasVegasRN, you are being so stoopid!" (even though I won't blame you if you strongly feel the need ), and listening to me be silly. :kiss

    LasVegasRN.......how is little Emma doing now? What did the doctor have to say?

    Maybe you can take a couple days to yourself when your parents get there. Is that a workable plan? :kiss

    Las Vegas RN,
    I would never call you sutpid, if MY mother was coming to live with me for 3 weeks I'd be sitting on the roof top blowing bubbles and I wouldn't even need a sick daughter to drive me to it. Hope you litte one is feeling better, SF must be awful in the heat of Los Vegas, I remember my kids just burning up with fever and c/o itch from the rash. Hope things are better (they can hardly get worse at this point can they? )
