an awesome week.

Justin & the boys all woke up with the "swine flu". Justin stayed home from work, because he is kind to his colleagues like that.

Truth be told it was great to have him home, even though he was "sick", checked the boys temperature's every hour, made them drink Emergen-C by the gallon, and nearly had a panic attack every time someone coughed.

I cancelled my ROOT CANAL. So, I went to the dentist last week because I was SURE I had a cavity {or 20...kidding} because I ALWAYS get one after I have a baby, it's weird.
I put on my paperwork that I could feel something was up with one tooth.
I had x-rays, was checked out by the hygienist and dentist and they were all like your mouth looks good, there are no problems except an old filling had cracked a bit {the tooth that was annoying me} and needed repair, and you might as well get a root canal...or two. YEAH, two...and at the tune of $6000. {before our insurance was taken out}...uh, no thanks I'll take the used Toyota I could buy with that money.
Funny thing was though, that they kept saying "we'll take care of that tooth that is causing you pain" and I was like; "it doesn't actually hurt, nor is it sensitive to hot or cold. " I was ignored.
Needless to say after a 2 hour WASTE OF TIME appointment at which I didn't even get my teeth CLEANED for crying out loud they offered to do one of the root canals right then and there.

I don't think so.

So, at this juncture {did I seriously just type that...I guess I did} I'm not sure what to do. I thought you got root canals when you were in pain. I could be wrong, but I think I need a second opinion. The whole thing was a bit to sketchy for me, and seemed more like a money making scam rather than a dental office.

I discovered some water behind my washing I pulled it out {which was no easy task let me tell you} and cleaned that nastiness out. I figured out that the hose had come out of the drain because the hose clippy thingy {this is a technical term} to get it to bend down in the drain had snapped off...nothing a little duct tape can't fix and I think it should be good to go. I did two loads of laundry afterwards and all is well.

Despite the fact that it rained ALL DAY LONG without ceasing until around 6PM, the boys did get to go out and play a little baseball in the cul-de-sac with the neighbors until around 8 when the game was called...on account of RAIN.

Thursday {TODAY}:
I pour my coffee, drink it, go back for a refill and there is coffee ALL over my counter. Our coffee maker doesn't pour out of a carafe, rather it brews into a built in carafe and you just put your mug under the machine and pull lever down and wallah.

Except today I had to scoop my second cup of coffee into my mug.

Yeah, I'm that desperate.

On the bright side of things though, I see the sun today!

So glad to see the sun today too! Glad your washer issue wasn't serious! Hopefully tomorrow will be better for you than the rest of the week. :)

Sorry to hear you had such a crummy week, Anne. I hope it's all uphill from here.

Since misery loves company, maybe this will help...

On Tuesday I was diagnosed with strep throat. Today, the girls -- yes ALL three -- were diagnosed with it. I think even the pediatrician was surprised. I was not happy to hear the news, but at least glad I wasn't over-reacting by taking them into the office for runny noses and fussiness. My mom also ended up with strep since she was at our house before I knew we had it.

We had to cancel Olivia's 5th birthday party which was scheduled for this Saturday and a dinner we had planned with friends tonight that we've been planning for two months. So I'm working on rescheduling both.

It's been peachy.

Anyway, I can relate and am praying for you.

Did Justin really get the swine flu? Maybe a lot of people have now in the states? It is funny after reading Justin's survival for the Swine flu - guess he didn't take his own advice.
