Middle-Child is sick again. This time it’s allergies. And I only have myself to blame, as I am the one with the seasonal allergy problem and he inherited it from his loving mom. My husband was kind enough to point this out this morning. He’s on a business trip all week and misses the kids terribly. Yes, blame my genes.
I am still recovering from our camping trip and Dutch Oven Adventures. I think I’ve washed about 8 or 9 loads of laundry since we returned. From clothes to sheets to jackets, everything was either covered in dirt or reeking of campfire smoke. I will be missing the next Scout Family Camp as I will be attending Camp Blogaway that weekend in Big Bear. This will be the first time I will leave my family, no husband, no kids. It’s exciting and scary at the same time.
But, for right now, today, I’m grumpy.
I’m grumpy because my boy is sick and I have to take him to the doctor again.
I’m grumpy that my husband is out of town this week.
I’m grumpy because I can’t seem to keep this house in order.
I’m grumpy because I have to file my taxes myself.
I’m grumpy because I didn’t get to work out with my sister-in-law today.
But, on the bright side, I will remind myself it’s going to be 80ºF here in San Diego today (compared to the high of 50ºF the hubby gets to deal with in Wisconsin – hee! hee!). My parents will be driving in today from Texas. Yea, Mimi & Papa! I’m excited that the kids’ Spring Break is next week. Yea, no school! And I suppose I should be happy that I didn’t have to wait all day to get my boy to the doctor’s office. In fact, I better get him ready right now!
I think I will bake something today. It will bring a smile to my boy’s face and to mine!
And, to celebrate the end of the month, Spicie Foodie is kind enough to host a collection of bloggers’ best recipes for the month of March. Check out her site and the wonderful recipes there. I chose something healthy and something symbolic for my family and I. My kookoo-yeh sabzi. It’s a traditional herb quiche made for the Persian New Year, which coincides with the first day of Spring.
I will do my best to keep a positive attitude today. At least I get to spend the day with my cute little boy. He may be 7 1/2, but he still lets me hug him and squeeze him, especially when he’s sick.
