I think my posts make it obvious that I've been down lately. But, I woke up this morning bound and determined to see the brighter side of life. My day has tried to throw road blocks. TRex fought with me all morning. The Dancing Queen had lots of dried blood inside of her ear canal. I opened DQ's back pack to find a note that chicken pox has broken out in her special ed preschool (very dangerous for her--so dangerous her immunologist won't even allow TRex to get immunized because DQ may get it from TRex's vaccine). The Mad Scientist and I had a heated discussion over the best way to address the chicken pox situation. I was almost hit by a car in my parking garage as I walked into work. I forgot my good coffee and had to drink swill. DQ's special ed teacher didn't return my call for hours and then told me the child with the pox rides DQ's bus (cue more freak out mode).
With all of those road blocks, I'm still happier than I have been lately. I'm still smiling and I can see silver linings. DQ had a blast at school and was so excited to drive her car in the gross motor room today. The school and her teacher are doing everything in their power to prevent further spread of chicken pox. DQ's pediatrician is not yet concerned and now that we know it is a possibility, we are prepared to jump into action if anything out of the ordinary happens. I had a great lunch with a friend. I have starburst jelly beans (the best). And I should be home before the kids go to bed tonight.
Life is good.
