Sent out the Dogs Yet?

Sorry for the absence but the weekend was exhausting and there is never a dull moment here in Spazzland. So a quick rundown of what has taken preference:

  1. My baby bro is home from college for the summer now, so we had some pizza Friday night to celebrate.
  2. Saturday I went to the Wrigleyville Relay which has nothing to do with running and everything to do with beer.
  3. Drank too much at said relay and thus, sang a little too much karaoke.
  4. Learned that my sister is the worst person to drink and go karaoking with because if you utter the words, "I like this song...", you WILL be singing it.
  5. Mother's day lunch with my mom, poor thing didn't even get a handmade card from me. How did I let that happen?
Oh, yeah and I bought a new camera...My new child.
Last night I noticed a huge rash covering my poor son's whole body so this morning I ran off to the doc to get some cream.
It was SCARLET FEVER.
The kid had strep and I didn't even know it.
THIS is why I got no mom's day presents.
I'm pretty much the worst mom on the planet.

Be back tomorrow, when I have more time because we are off school til Thursday!
Don't want to spread the boogie woogie fever.

And, congrats on the new camera.

I'm so sorry about your son and you definitely aren't a bad mom (says the mom who let her 4 year old walk around with a punctured ear drum that got infected for about 10 days)

Oh wow! I'm so sorry to hear about your son. I hope it doesn't last long.

On another note, I didn't make my mom a card either...it's pretty ironic that I spend my spare time teaching/encouraging others to make their own cards, then I run out of time to make mine!
