And the livin' WAS easy

Nah, its not really that bad.  I've successfully made it through 2 whole days without Eric and I only have one more full day to go.

I had a great story from last night about stepping on a piece of glass and bleeding out all over our basement to share, but its totally been trumped by today's events.  I always take a unisom when Eric travels, and in spite of that, I woke up wide awake at 3 a.m. with a KILLER sore throat.  Newborn sleeping peacefully through the night, mama wide awake all night.  Not cool.

Since the boys just had their little stint with strep throat I headed straight to the doctor.  Unfortunately, so did a lot of other people.  After a 2 and a half hour wait, I got the prescription for antibiotics I needed.  I dropped it off at the pharmacy with every intention of picking it up on the way to Maggie's doctor appointment to test her for strep.  It took us much longer to get ready to go for Maggie's appt. than expected, so my drugs would have to wait.  Not a big deal since I would likely be back at the pharmacy with Maggie's prescription soon anyway.  

  Doctor's office exam room.

I won't bore you with the details of waiting forever at Maggie's appointment, waiting forever at the Costco pharmacy for Maggie's prescription, waiting forever at Walgreen's for my prescription, and then getting stuck at the train tracks with our house in sight, but it happened.  It was 7 p.m. by the time we got home, which, with the time change is like midnight to our kids, and we were all beat.  The kids had french fries, milkshakes, and antibiotics for dinner and then went right to bed.  It's almost 8:30 now, and I have taken at least one of every pill I could find in the house, so sleep should be near for me too =)

Note to self: NEVER title a blog post "the living is easy."
