One Of Those Days

Wednesday was one of those days that you wish you could crawl back in bed before the day even starts. It also is one of those days that makes you thankful for those normal days when you feel like you keep doing the same things over and over again as a mom.

The day started fairly early. I had a nasty cold and knew we had a big weekend coming up so knew sleep was important to try get my body to recover. Eric had a long day of meetings and was driving home. He didn't get home until 1:45 am which means I didn't fall asleep until he was safely next to me. From 2-5:30 Emma came in our room about 4 times complaining that her tummy hurt. At 5:30 the day began as Emma began throwing up. You know the drill ... get her in the bath, strip the bed, get the laundry going and then cuddle with your sick, sad little girl. I got Alexa up and ready for school and we headed out the door to bring Alexa to school with a bucket in toe. As we drove to school Emma began throwing up again. Luckily it was all in the bucket. We got to school and Alexa got teary and wasn't feeling good. She had had sinus drainage and a cold and wasn't 100% yet. So I proceeded to try to talk her in to staying home. She cried harder because she had her first 2nd grade field trip on the bus to the bison farm for the day. It was one of those mommy moments that you just don't know what to do. So I finally told her in the next 20 minutes before they leave if she wasn't feeling good to go to the office. I drove home with mommy guilt. I kept thinking I should have just kept her home she would have gotten over missing the field trip. What if she is miserable all day. Well we pulled into the garage and got in the house only to get a call from school that Alexa was in the office. I was relieved she had made the decision to stay home so we got back in the car, Emma was crying because she didn't want to drive to school again. She proceeded to throw up again on the way to school the poor thing. We spent the rest of the morning laying low. Now the women that read my blog will understand my next disappointment. I was supposed to get my hair cut and highlighted that afternoon. It had been 12 weeks since I had anything done with my hair and it takes weeks to get into my hair dresser. I always look forward to my time with my friend, a cup of coffee, some magazines and a new head of hair. Eric so kindly arranged his schedule to work from home so I could get my hair done. I sat down only to be told by my friend that something had happened to my hair and it was fried. I am thinking it is my new hairdryer that gets really hot, or maybe a lot of sun and pool this summer or maybe the fact I hadn't had it cut for 12 weeks. Needless to say I had to have some rather short layers cut in my hair. I was a little bummed but it is hair and it will grow back. So back to just enjoying my time in my chair. I look down and in shock notice my large diamond in my wedding ring is missing. So now my nice relaxing time in the chair turns to hot flashes, sweating and wondering where in the world is my diamond and when did I lose it. My hair was finished and I proceeded home to hunt. I put a new vacuum bag in and began spring cleaning. The furniture got moved, the furniture got vacuumed. Every inch of the house was going to get a good cleaning. Then I saw what I thought might be a diamond in the girls closet. I picked it up and wondered if it was one of the girls play jewels. No, it was my diamond. I couldn't believe I actually found it. The jeweler said it doesn't happen too often that the diamond is recovered. Thinking that was a great end to a not so good day I decided to call it a day. I still wasn't feeling great so fell into bed that night hoping round two of the flu wasn't going to hit the house. I woke up in the middle of the night to a crunch sound and realized I was grinding my teeth and one of my "new" teeth fell off. If you have followed my blog you know I had extensive dental work done about a year and a half ago. Well one of my verniers popped off and that is how my day ended. I just have to chalk it up to one of those days. I did want to record the day so on those days that I feel like life gets boring or I feel like I am doing the same thing day after day I will appreciate those what seem to be "boring" or just plain normal days!

Thursday proved to be better. The girls were back at school at noon and feeling better. I brought my ring in and $150 for a new head didn't seem too bad when at one time I was wondering what a new diamond would cost. I had my tooth put back on and was fit for a lovely night guard so my teeth grinding won't cause anymore teeth or jaw issues.
