Yesterday was a very busy day. I actually left the house in the morning and then again in the afternoon. Needless to say, I was exhausted by 4:00 pm.
On Monday, the kitchen light (which has two bulbs in it) would not work. That evening, we had to use a flashlight to navigate around the kitchen. John concluded that the light fixture must be bad. So yesterday morning, I ventured to Lowe's to buy a new fixture for the kitchen.
We came home, and I put Porgie down for her nap. She slept for about 30 minutes and was up crying. Ugh. Izzy was fussing and crying too, so we went to the park (it was like 70 degrees in new Jersey yesterday). Porgie was a nightmare. She cried because other kids were on the swings. She cried because other kids were on the slide. She cried because the wind blew.
We left the park and headed over to the doctor's office. Porgie had to get her second dose of the flu shot. She is one smart little cookie, because she started screaming in the waiting room when the nurse called her name. Of course, receiving the shot was very traumatic and everyone cried.
By the time we left, I had a splitting headache. I stopped at Dunkin Donuts and got a large strawberry shake. All my troubles melted away as I gulped down my lovely beverage. I had been off dairy for weeks to try to help Izzy's intestinal troubles, but it hasn't seemed to help. So, I am back on dairy.
We went home, where Porgie continued to whine and cry. John got home around 5:30 and put up the new kitchen light fixture. It turns out that our old fixture wasn't bad after all. We just had two bad light bulbs. DUH! But I don't blame John for thinking it was bad - how often do two light bulbs go bad at the same exact time?
Anyways, I was wiped last night. Izzy and I went to bed around 8:30. However, it did feel good to get out of the house again. Its just so damn hard to get both kids ready and fed before leaving. Fortunately, Izzy slept almost the entire time we were out, so that made life much easier. Call me crazy, but I think we are going to go out again this afternoon.
