Wednesday Mahem...

Here is my enormous to-do list for today:
  • clean up tornado wrecked kitchen In Progress
  • clean downstairs bathroom
  • change sheets on our bed Done
  • clean out 20 gal fish tank and switch fish from 55 gal to 20 gal, rocks, live plants, and check the filters. In Progress
  • clean up back play room
  • switch dressers in back play room, turn over baby dresser to make the top a changing station. Rearrange the dressers.
  • can peaches and plums, freeze kiwi Gathering Supplies
  • ever mounting laundry

And I have no idea how to get all this done today. I watch another baby girl about the same age as my baby girl during the day. So between them and my 3 year old, getting my 6 yr old to school in the morning, making breakfast, getting naps (including myself), then getting lunch, I have an hour or two before picking up my son from school. Then it's a short rest time for the girls and then I have about an hour or two before the mom picks up her girl. By that time it is after 3pm. It's almost time to get dinner going. I wonder where my day goes. Just writing it all down makes sense to me now. I'm quite busy just with the dailies.

How does your day go?

Ahh. Yummy. Cupcakes.

In light of the upcoming holiday, St. Valentine's Day, I will be making these scrumptious yummy desserts for my son's class. Of course, I will be making more than needed for his class, seeing how my husband and his friend will be devouring them before they make it out of the door. So my goal is to make about 40 of these yummy things. I'm perusing the internet for the perfect recipe. I will also be filling the insides with a yummy filling also yet to be found. So if you know of that killer recipe, please send to me! I have a bunch of 1st graders that will be forever grateful. Okay. Grateful for the afternoon! Who are we kidding?
ps. My 3 year old still watches Polar Express at least twice a day. Yup. Scratched and all by now.

Whew! What a day I had yesterday. After getting up and getting my day started, I finally looked at myself in the mirror and saw that I was completely covered in a rash. Ugly too. One of my medicines that has been prescribed to me has a probability of a fatal rash. So after viewing my rash and freaking out internally, I calmly called my poor husband and told him he had to come home right away and explained why. Then I proceeded to get all my kids dressed and my oldest off to school with a friend that walks by every morning. Once the kids were all dropped off, we headed to our military ER. They checked me out and said yes, it was from this medicine I am on, and yes, it can be fatal, but the allergic reaction has various degrees of it for everyone. Mine, so far, isn't fatal. So the doctor on call gives me 3 more prescriptions with directions on how to take them and then proceeds to tell me 3 reaction signs to keep a watch out for that signals a more serious tone. Great. Thank goodness I am alright. Other than the crazy itchy rash all over my body from head to legs. I am trying so hard not to itch everywhere knowing that once I do, it's all over and I won't be able to stop until I'm bleeding.

Once we got home, I went straight to bed and slept most of the afternoon. It was great. I still have my rash and it still itches like crazy, but my face isn't so red and I don't feel as hot as I did yesterday. Maybe it will be gone by the weekend. Not that it matters much.

Speaking of weekends. My poor husband has to work again this Saturday. Last Saturday he worked for 13 hours. Gotta love the military. (joke.)
