Sat in the ER from 7pm- 2:30 am. I have an ovarian cyst. Fun! My mom keeps telling me her stories. It's scary... I'm not trying to lose my ovaries here. She apparently had the same problems. I wish she were back in North Carolina. I'm in so much pain.... there's no one to take care of me. Not that I need a lot of care, I just need a lot of sleep right now. A LOT of sleep. But that's hard with a 20 month old and a 3 year old. :o(

Right now, I'm just trying to kill time before I have to sit on a conference call. I put the kids down for a nap without a struggle. Lanie isn't asleep yet but she isn't moving around or making noise so I guess that's a plus. Too bad I have to use nap time for a conference call. *pouts*

Jena--- my clingy baby did not cry at all when I left her at her little preschool.

Lanie--- Wanted me to leave her. She did not behave at all. She hit and kicked the teacher, threw temper tantrums, threw things across the room. Their lesson in Chapel was to learn about Gods Creations, and they said she would not sit and listen to the priest. But they believe she's just testing her boundaries. I hope so.... I've been talking to her every day about it so hopefully by Tuesday she'll understand. Instead of most punishments now, I sit her down and talk to her. Then give her a hug. That seems to be working. She's been a pretty good girl today. I think, when I tell her to pick up toys, we're going to need a timer. It shouldn't take 10 minutes to pick up mega-blocks.

Parenting------ Sometimes I think it's for the birds.

I wish you had called. We're in town and I would have come and done stuff with the girls so you could sleep. Are you still up for tomorrow night? If you are tired or not feeling well, we do not need to come. We'll be back in November and we can visit then. Let me know how you are feeling and if you would rather we not come tomorrow evening.

Some days it IS for the birds! I'm so sorry about the cyst. I could write a book about that and the pain that accompanies - it's also for the birds! Here's hoping you feel better soon!

So sorry about your ovarian cyst problem. You seem to have more than your share of health problems. You poor woman. I hope the problem gets taken care of soon.
