having one of those days

Have you ever started the day and just known it was going to be one of those days? Yep I was having one of those yesterday. It started early with a wake-up call from Channing wanting to climb into bed with me. I sent her back to her room but it was still difficult to get back to sleep.

After I got the kids off to school, I tried to use my new phone and it wouldn't work. Could it be possible I've killed another perfectly good phone? This time I am completely innocent of any foul play, the phone just isn't healthy! I rebooted the phone and it started working but Craig says I sound funny on it so looks like I'll be taking this one back to the store.

Of course, this is the morning of all mornings I don't have a lot of extra time. After getting the phone back to working, I needed to finish some burp cloths. Well, could you imagine the computer wasn't working and I needed these burp cloths today! It took a while to get it up and running but by then it was time to leave for a dr. appointment. Of course right as I was to leave, I got a call from the school saying Dalton was not acting his normal self. I had given his ADHD med this morning before school because special ed. was doing some testing and requested we start his meds back. I warned Dalton may be overly emotional but they were concerned with his behavior. But of course, of all mornings, I couldn't come right up and get him because I was off for a dr. appointment.

I got to the dr. appointment and a lady started apologizing to me for accidentally honking her horn at me and she thought I'd given her a dirty look. Nope, I didn't even notice her but she wasn't buying my story. She apologized over and over and over again. Yikes, what a day!

Finally, I finish my paperwork and get called back. I start some of the prelim stuff and the doctor comes up to me and says, he's called to the hospital to deliver some babies...I can wait or reschedule. I had no choice, had to reschedule! So after several attempts at calling the school, they reported Dalton to be doing much better just talking a lot (like after 10 cups of coffee.)

I got home, finished the burp cloths and off to visit a friend with a new precious little baby. From there, I was off to pick up Sullivan and Channing and beat Dalton's bus home. He was the funniest thing when he got off the bus. He had lost his voice from talking so much at school. When I asked him what happened, he said, "Mom I was talking too much but I love to talk..." and I don't think he ever stopped talking!

After homework, off to track where Sullivan had his pictures made. While he was doing that, I ran to a friend's open house. She had beautiful stuff for sale just a little out of my price range. Would have loved to do some shopping there. I didn't have a lot of time but had hoped to come back later in the evening to look at some things a little closer...that never happened.

From there, off to pick up dinner then to volleyball. Craig took the kids home while I played volleyball with our Sunday School class. It was lots of fun. After I was done playing, Craig met me at the church with Sullivan. He was complaining of his side hurting under his rib cage and wanted to go to the doctor. Luckily a friend of ours is a doctor and he allowed us to come to his house to give Sullivan a look. The funny thing, he was the doctor on-call that night and if we had gone to the hospital, he was probably the one we would have seen.

His diagnosis: growing pains. So, what a way to end our drama filled day! Praise God, nothing major.
