You know, it's going to be a bad day when you are fantasizing about Martini's by early afternoon. <sigh>
Fuzzy is fed up with being sick and taking all his frustration out on me. Life is not fun with a cranky 12 (13, in 5 weeks) year old boy.
My solution? Allowing him to get his frustrations out by playing Xbox live, and giving me a break to get on the puter. Yeah, not exactly the stellar parent of the year, huh? LOL
Hammer on the other hand is being his usual helpful, kind, thoughtful self. He is doing my parents 2 loads of laundry, since they are sick. Hammer also has a bit of cold now, but he just took the 2 Sudafeds and doesn't complain. He also took the time to make me coffee and rub my shoulders.
This was the child that we were so unbelievably frustrated with before his diagnosis and after when we were worried we wouldn't be able to help him grow to be a well adjusted kid/teen/adult. Now, he is a dream come true, he has grown and matured and coped with his difficulties with Asperger's far better than we could ever have imagined.
We are so blessed and thankful for that.
I woke up completely congested again. It started last night, I knew I was sick again... un- freaking- believable!!! I alcohol swab, Purell and wash my hands like crazy! But, caring for sick kids... I knew I would probably get it again. Ack.
AND, today is Pumpkin's birthday party. First, we pick her and some friends up at school and head to the bowling alley. They will have 1 1/2 hours of unlimited bowling from 3:30 - 5pm with pizza and drinks. There are 5 girls, plus Pumpkin.
THEN, 2 girls are coming back her to the house to watch movies and sleepover. Yay! <sigh>
Thankfully, both girls staying over have basketball in the am, and will be getting picked up at 10am. I think they may try to sleep too, since they have a game, but who knows?
Send me prayers, wishes, and light candles, because I am going to need all the strength I can get!!! LOL
Hubby will be helping with the bowling party but then he has a Boy Scout event in the evening. That's okay, because I am hopeful that the girls will entertain themselves. Ha.
Well, it is life with kids. And, truly, they are my life, my inspiration, my everything. I just hope someday they appreciate it.
My mom and dad both finally seem to be turning the corner with their colds/bronchitis.
Guess what? My mom hasn't smoked since Tuesday!!! YAY! Maybe she won't ever go back... she was only smoking about 10 a day, anyhow... I am keeping my fingers crossed!
Love and peace and happiness to you all...
