The title of this post fits in more than one way. First, everything seems to be falling apart, and less than 24 hours before I leave for Hawaii!!!
First, the good "falling apart".
In case you can't tell, Eden, who is 4 (almost 5) lost her first tooth yesterday! She was so excited about it! So for those of you in the area, next time you see her, she'll probably want to show you several times.
Now, the not so good falling apart.
Yesterday I took Amanda in to the doctor's office because she was absolutely miserable. It turns out she has a terrible ear infection. But on top of that, her doctor started scaring me by talking about Amanda being very likely to get pneumonia. The doctor was so serious about it and said if she didn't improve in the next 24 hours she'd want to see Amanda again! So she prescribed a strong antibiotic for the ear infection and hopes it'll keep pneumonia away. Thankfully today, Amanda has been feeling much better.
So I was thinking all day yesterday "this trip isn't going to happen!!! I'm not meant to go to Hawaii. I'm going to stay home and be a good mom." But once she was feeling better, I started thinking I was going to go after all.
But then this evening Eden and Ashley both start complaining about their ears. So, at 7:45 this evening I took them to the doctors. Left there at 9:15 and finished getting their prescriptions filled at 10:00.
I leave tomorrow afternoon... maybe! Is it going to happen? I don't know. I'm having a hard enough time leaving my kids anyway. It doesn't help that they're getting sick at the last moment.
If I can't go does anyone want the tickets?
Sorry for complaining. I just had to let it all out. That and I wanted to post that picture of Eden!
