Please tell me it’s a joke

It is Friday.

I am exhausted.  I have a headache. 

And it is Friday.

Why oh why do I feel this way……on a Friday!

Someone please tell me it’s a joke.  It is April Fool’s day after all.  It’s okay.  I promise I will not be mad at you.  I may scream whine and pitch a fit question motives, but I will not be mad.

Someone or something in the universe must have it out for me.  Who oh who did I tick off??

Let me back up a little and explain.  It all started on Monday.  Dreadful Monday.  Note to Monday….we are so over!

Kohl had some drainage in his left ear over the weekend which required a trip to the pediatrician’s office.  He had tubes placed in his ears in 2008.  It’s an infection.  We have antibiotics.  We were sent home with well wishes.

Fast forward to Thursday.  We wake up.  I go to clean his ears, since there is this yellow sticky, ucky stuff coming out of them day and night, only to discover that the stuff is now pink.  PINK!  That means blood.  With infection….NOT GOOD!

Mom freaks.  Calls the ENT.  Can’t be seen until today.  At noon.  We walked out of the ENT’s office at 2:00!  With oral antibiotics (a stronger one), antibiotic drops, and corticosteroids.  We have to go back in two weeks.  My poor baby.

But wait it get’s better or I guess in this case worse.  I was up at 2:00 a.m. changing bed sheets, bathing a child, putting closes in the wash, and spraying lysol every where.  Kohl has a virus.  He has been throwing up since last night!

I have had little sleep.  I have had little caffeine.  I have had little food.  I am not a happy momma.

I am tired exhausted!  So you guys are only getting breakfast today.  It was a great breakfast.  But it is all I have energy for at the moment.

I hate to use the word moist, but there really is no other way to describe this.  It is like eating a cake for breakfast.  Not just any cake but molten cake, and who doesn’t like molten cake for breakfast.  Or any time for that matter.

See the chocolate yumminess inside.  That is bright sunshine on a cloudy day 🙂

I highly recommend this to you.  Make some for your significant other and I promise some love in return.

So here is sending you guys some love, I am grateful I had time to put this post together.  I have to finish scrubbing the house, feed the family, take a bath, and face plant into my bed.  I am praying that tomorrow is a better day!
