Funny and Not Funny

Last night was Bunco.  Have you played?  Ton of fun!  Anywho, it was at a house I hadn't been to.  I plugged it in gps and parked where I saw my friend's parked cars, figuring it must be the house.  I grab my wine, plate of cookies and head to the door.  Two men were standing outside, one grabbed a cookie and the other said I could come in through the back.  {I'm figuring these are the husbands of some of the women} I walk in and the house is dead quiet.  I look at the man that came in after me and asked if I was at the right house!  I told him the street address and he said I was at wrong house! "What?, my friend's car is parked right beside your driveway!  You are kidding, right?"  He just started laughing and said I was supposed to be two houses down!  I was so embarrassed.  He just let me walk right in his kitchen like I knew where I was going.  Luckily, he was nice and didn't shoot me for walking in his house!  Turns out his wife is also in Bunco, just wasn't going last night!

NOT Funny:
Two sick kids.  Claire had a high temp Sunday night and had a terrible cough so I took her to the doctor Monday morning.  Turns out she has an ear infection.  The doctor was also concerned with her cough and how her lungs sounded.  She mentioned RSV, but then said Mycoplasma.  Thanks to meds, she is feeling much better.  ~ just dealing with a nose that runs like a faucet.

Tuesday night, Max woke up at midnight crying and coughing (a different cough) and had a temp.  I texted the doctor and she said I could bring him in or wait a day.  I waited, but should have taken him in.  He also has an ear infection.  He just finished his antibiotics from his last ear infection last week!  We talked about tubes and decided we would see the ENT if he gets one more.  She put him on the same meds as Claire, hoping to make sure he doesn't get Mycoplasma and clear up his ear.

The past few days have been rough for me.  They have been crying, whining, fighting non stop.  I think they cried from 6am-11am yesterday....sometimes together, sometimes taking turns.  And today Max's cough was so bad and he decided he didn't need a nap.  OVER it!  So glad they are going to school tomorrow bc this Mom needs a break!!

When I see this picture, I just try to remember cute ones like this


  1. Sorry to hear you've had a rough few days, it's the worst when they cry in unison.

  2. I have never played bunco, but I've heard it's a lot of fun. The only thing worse than a sick kiddo is two sick kiddos. Sorry it's going around your house, I can only hope the meds do the trick and they are on the mend soon.

  3. Ugh, so sorry Kelly! Hang in there! Fingers crossed they feel better soon!
