What a crappy crappy week. Hang in there.

I'm not a cool YouTuber but two of my favorite websites for a pick-me-up are

Ok, wait, here's a video my boss sent me this morning.


Sorry to hear about all the troubles!

I hope you and Pete are at least feeling better soon. It's hard enough to deal with stress without feeling sick (or having a sick little one!) to boot.

I hear you...
It's been a rough week here too...
Praying that tomorrow will be a better day for all of you...
(And, you know what? Sometimes doctors can be really mean...I've been there...not fun...)

As soon as I think of something funny I'll post it!
How's that for procrastination?

A jerk because Pete wasn't vaccinated against it or just that he had it? Weird, anyway.

Um, I'm all out of jokes. However, I'm sure tomorrow will be better than today.

um, that's not a good month. It's only the 2nd.

I can't remember if the others have had the pox yet? Hope so.

I hope that you managed to finish the banner, that Pete isn't too itchy, that you're feeling better now.

As for a joke... well, here's one my dad sent me recently.

Little Johnny's kindergarten class was on a field trip to their local police station where they saw pictures tacked to a bulletin board of the 10 most wanted criminals. One of the youngsters pointed to a picture and asked if it really was the photo of a wanted person. 'Yes,' said the policeman. 'The detectives want very badly to capture him.' Little Johnny asked, 'Why didn't you keep him when you took his picture ?'

So sorry it's not going well.

A couple of Bert & Ernie posts that might perk you (or at least Pete) up:




[They seem sort of relevant for the writing process, too.]

Thanks, everybody, for the sympathy.

Sarabeth, I'm not sure what the doctor's deal was. He didn't even say hello, just started in with the rapid-fire unpleasant. I'm going to chalk it up to a bad day for both of us. It wouldn't ordinarily have upset me so much.

So so sorry about all your trouble. Will definitely pray for you all.

Tell your mom happy birthday from me.
Hang in there!

Ugh, Pete probably got those pox from your shingles. I was going to post about this possibility but then didn't...are your kids vaccinated for varicella? Mine had to get a booster (they are 8 and 6) because apparently full immunity was not assured with the first dose. Well, water under the bridge in your house, I'm sure.

So sorry about Pete.

Knock, knock. Who's there? Control Freak. Cont...NOW you're supposed to say "control freak who!"

Awww. Does it help to know I have been thinking of you with gratitude for the nursing help, and that I finally got my OB to take the whole thrush thing seriously?

Oe of the doctors at the pediatrician's practice is always very unpleasant and shuts down questions. I hate it. He, of course, is who we got to see while in the hospital when Will was born. So I feel you on that front.

I've had shingles and the pain does go away quickly. And I was 29 or 30, and planning my wedding, so i think it can be stress related.

It will get done. You are a very efficient and effective mother. Hoping you and Pete get better soon.

oh, cj, so sorry so much crappiness is piling up on you- we've been having some down days as well.

shingles definitely can be induced by stress (lots of other stuff, too!) my husband got it in college and they told him it was stress-induced. and he had the pox as a kid! so we have to watch that with him. at what age do the little ones get the vaccine for the c.pox? pete is still little like pnut, i don't think she's had it yet, but we'll get it for her as we also live w/ my 84 yr old uncle who never had the cpox and that could be dangerous for him.

i am in what seems like molasses myself for this chapter outline i am supposed to be making sense of. i keep waiting for my brain to kick in and work it out already! augh!

will pray for you. take good care.
