Manic Monday

Here we are starting a brand new week. I'm not off to the greatest start here. In fact, I am sitting here waiting for the time to feed Micah so I can leave to see the ophthalmologist in town today. One of my eyes has flared up again and I was due to see the doc on Wednesday, but I called this morning and I am going this afternoon instead. The boys are at the farm, and I came home to get a few things done before I have to leave. Micah is sleeping in his car seat, so in 20 minutes I will wake him to eat. Hm. Sounds like he is waking already. At the farm this morning I nearly started crying after Micah spit up all over my sweatshirt, the only clean and decent shirt I have to wear today. So, I am going to the ophthalmologist with spit up on my shirt, but I guess there is nothing I can do about it. I wish Mike could have come with me so I would not have to be alone in the waiting room with Micah. I know it is not a big deal, it's just that this guy sometimes keeps me waiting as long as three hours in his waiting room. I don't want to feed Micah there. I feel too exposed. But if I'm there even two hours I will have to do so. He might cry the whole time we're there. He might puke all over the place repeatedly. I really don't look forward to this experience, but I have no choice. Left untreated, this condition in my eye could lead to blindness, and that is really not something I want to mess with.

Anyway, I am thankful to have baby sitting for the other two boys. I could not go with all of them. It would be a disaster. I guess I don't have much more to say at the moment. I am just stressed and still upset over some other things from last week. I would love to just have a nap now instead of all this other hassle.

Speaking of naps, though, Micah slept through the night last night, and I mean really through the night! He did not wake up until 6:45 a.m. which was awesome. I did not expect that because he had been having tummy issues all evening.

Anyway, my day is over now. My trip to the doc was good. I am okay. No more eye drops. No follow up appointments. Phew. So, I'm off for now.

Sounds like we could all use a maid, a nanny and a psychiatrist (at least for me!). Hope that you are well today!
