Spring Break DUDE!

My daughter's is this week. It is excrutiatingly boring for her...and me! It might be better if she hadn't kicked it off with a Monday morning trip to the ER. Her eye was COMPLETELY swollen shut when she woke up. For some reason, they diagnosed her with pink eye (damn you, Scott Baio!) , but gave her an oral antibiotic to avoid having it "turn into" periorbital cellulitis. OK, thank you again, Internet. She TOTALLY had cellulitis...not at all conjunctivitis. No ifs, ands or buts about it. She can see now, but it still looks like we beat her. Doh!

After she was feeling better we would've gone running about town eating unhealthy food and spending money BUT since her baby brother decided to contract his THIRD bout of pneumonia in six months, we stayed home with him instead. Mmmmmm, snot snorking. That's my family's new past time. Sad, huh?

On a positive note, I had my annual review with my manager this morning. To read my review, you'd expect to see an "Employee of the Year" plaque hanging behind me right now in my office (right next to my "Mother of the Year" award!). So...I look good on paper anyway. Unfortunately, unless you're in the top 5% of the company, your "merit" raise is jack squat. Ewwww! 3%! How EVER will I spend it all? Sigh, again. Get me off this crazy thing!

Hmmm, I guess a little kid's spring break isn't nearly as compelling as an adult's.

Sick kids, to boot? Damn, that really sucks.
Sorry your week's been so craptacular. Sounds like you need to revisit that whole "mommy drinks" thing again!
