Rotten Evening...

I had such a rotten evening. At about 3:15, I looked out the window, at blizzard like conditions. I was picking the boys up from school, and I hurried out, so that they wouldn't have to wait in the blizzard. I picked them up, and we headed down to sign Kristin up for preschool next year(why sign-ups are in February, I'll never know). All of this done in blizzard conditions. You couldn't see more than 1 car length in front of you, and it was crazy. Got Kris signed up, and headed to Becca's to get the boys hair cut. Jake was having a "special day" with Troy's mom, so LeeAnn brought Jake to the appointment. We were running a bit late, and I had to get Haley to the doctor, so LeeAnn stayed with the boys to get their hair cut, and I took off with the girls to the doctor. Remember, STILL a blizzard outside. I took Haley to the doctor, because she has had a fever for a week. I took her in last week, and was told it was a virus, by the dumb night-time docs. They're probably not all dumb, but she sure was. So, Haley was acting really wierd today, a few shuddering convulsions (my definition of, anyways), and I decided, enough was enough, and got her in the last appointment of the day to see her doctor. So, we got there, he did a strep test (just cause Kyle and Kristin had it last week), and then decided to do a urine test. That involved a catheter, and it sucked. Well, she has a urinary tract infection. Apparently it's rare for kids under the age of 2 to get it, so they are testing it to make sure she is not having kidney problems. (SERIOUSLY...POOR GIRL!) So, he gives me a perscription. Oh, it just happens to be the perscription that Kyle was allergic to, and that I just threw away YESTERDAY! So, I got to go pay for it again...pharmacies are money pits. Troy's mom met me at the doctors office, and dropped Kyle off, and took Jake to continue with their "special day". I'm glad it was someones special day...While I was at the doctor, Troy called, and said he couldn't leave work. Literally. There were jack knifed semi's at the point of the mountain north bound. great. He said the road in front of his work was a parking lot. At about 8, he called and said he was headed home. He said it didn't matter when he left, it was still going to take him forever. He estimates it taking him 3 hours. It's usually a 25 minute commute. So, kids are asleep in bed, Haley got her first dose of medicine (thank heavens for drive-thru pharmacies!) and I am now anxiously awaiting Troy's arrival. Oh, and to top it off, I have to decorate a valentine's box for Kyle. He doesn't want it pink or red, so I'm really making a white box. Our plans were to have him make it, but with our evening, and getting home at 8 tonight, that is not happening...I pray for a better day tomorrow...

Jen, I am listening to the news as we speak. People are stranded on the freeway around alpine because of those semi's. I don't know where your husband works but I hope it's closer to your home.
I hope me makes it home tonight. Keep us updated! :(

Sorry your day was so crappy. I hope you have a better day tomorrow.

That is a totally awful day. All I can do is say I'm sorry and I do hope tomorrow is better. I hope that typing it out was at least a little therapeutic. :-)
