Rough Week

This week has proven to be pretty rough and it is only Tuesday. J is working some overtime this week with some grant money that needs to be used up which is nice but he has to be at work by 6am which means he isn't home to help in the morning. Plus, I wake up when he gets up at 5am. Today was the worst. J had to be at work at 7am so not as bad for him. However, Peanut woke up at 6:15 today, way too early. After I dropped off the kids Peanut and I headed to her doctor appointment. I purposely planned it where it would just be her and I. She got her blood tested and that was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. She also needed to pee in a cup as we got there she said she had to pee and I told the lady and she took her sweet ole time getting the thing for her to pee in that she peed in her pants. I was so annoyed. I had to go out to the van with a half naked baby to get her new clothes. One thing I miss about not having a diaper bag. The blood oh the blood, they needed to take 5 tubes. They first stuck her in the left arm and got two before the vein popped. Then they had to stick her in the other arm to get the rest. I held her in my lap and one lady held her arm and the other lady took the blood. It was torture hearing her crying and I couldn't do much to help her. I told her while the needle was in that when we were done I would get her some ice cream. When it was all said and done the lady says to me, "Hopefully she will forget about the i c e c r e a m." I was like what. I told her I was giving her ice cream I'm not going to renege on what I said. What would that teach her: mom isn't going to do what she says. So I took her for some ice cream. Then it was off shopping for much needed things for the house. Then we had lunch and she took a nap. While she was sleeping the lab called and said they needed me to bring her back because they didn't put her blood in the right tube. I was so MAD. My poor girl was going to have to get stuck 3 times in ONE day. Ugh. It wasn't a huge deal to bring her in because I had to bring Monkey and GG in for getting blood taken. It was just a LONG day. J has to be at work at 6am Wednesday and Thursday and then hopefully the madness will end. Oh yeah and J is at a church board meeting tonight so we haven't seen each other more than 30 minutes today. J said to me tonight, "I hate this season in our lives right now." Me too. I feel so overwhelmed, exhausted and burnt out on driving so far. Ok, next WILL be better :)
