Ten Bonus Points to the first commenter who knows the ANSWER to that question. Five bonus points if you at least know what movie its from. I am not sure what we are keeping track of bonus points for, but feel free to play along – you never when a prize might materialize!
I think my body has given up on trying to function properly. Between the bouts of contractions, the sinus infection, the bronchitis and now the asthma flare-up, I am pretty much just a walking overdose of drugs. If they had to do a toxicology report on me right now, they would be so flippin confused they would wonder if they had accidentally mixed my results up with their pharmacy ordering report I am sure. I HATE meds. I hate doctors. i hate doctors who give you meds. and I hate when your body can’t just function so it doesn’t need meds. I am sure I am trying to be taught a lesson somewhere in here, something about patience, and trusting God, and learning to take each day as it comes – but right now i am too sinusy to even attempt to coherently put it all together.
So now i’m on the dreaded steroids. I had to be on them for a LONG time when i was 12 due to an allergic reaction to poison ivy. That’s right, it’s not enough to just get the NORMAL poison ivy reaction everyone else does, I got ALLERGIC to the poison ivy. Every square inch of my body was swelled, including my airways. It is probably what started my downward spiral of asthma/allergy problems come to think of it – but – anyways – prednisone + terra = a mental picture not unlike Veruca Salt of Willy Wonka movie fame, where she blows up into a blueberry and turns violet, violet. I am already halfway there anyways with the baby belly, now the rest of me gets to puff up as well! This after being told I am already retaining aÂ lot of water at my last midwife appointment. Now add in not being able to breathe, see in bright lights, get rid of the sinus pain and pressure, and a baby who is tryng to kick her way out through your navel, and you can see why just a massive OD on sleeping meds for the next four or five days would be a welcome relief at this point.
Ok i need to stop complaining. But I feela little better for getting it out of my system.
Today is Memorial Day.
I would like to go see Pirates today if we can find childcare for the girls.
I would like to plant flowers, oh wait i need to go BUY flowers first, for the front yard/porch.
I would love to get 5 scrap pages done. (yeah right!)
Thank God Ben is home today and tomorrow. It takes a lot of the pressure off of having to be good mommy with activities for kids while feeling so craptapular.
My brother and his wife and kids come into town this week – that will be fun to see them again! then the day after they leave, my other brother and sister in law return from France and are visiting for a few days! Family reunions in this family are always a guaranteed crazy good time! hopefully Baby Aidan has arrived before all the craziness so he can be part of it all!
I should really start thinking about doing get ready for Baby Kaylen type activities here soon….I don’t even know what I still do and don’t have left over from the girls!!! I think 7 weeks is plenty of time to get that all going though, right?
Ok i am off to do research on buying my own nebulizer machine so i can stop this ridiculous non-breathing cycle.
If you made it this far through this crazy post of complaints – thanks!
