I wish. . .

this was some sort of sick April Fool's Day joke, but it is my life!

Pat is much better. Now that he knows he does not have a brain aneurysm or losing his hearing, he is much more calm. He has an ear infection that is draining, whatever the freak that means, it is NASTY, and I lost a lot of sleep over it!

Today, my Internet access was temporarily shut off. I called Qwest to complain, and they told me, "Oops, it was their fault, they didn't realize that the $100 they were asking me for had been credited!" Therefore, it would be 2-24 hours before my account would be credited. WTF!!!! It was about 4 hours, and I caught up on a lot of DVR stuff because I sent my kids in the playroom and refused to communicate with them for fear of bodily injury! I can deal with a lot, and I have been a trooper, but cut off my Internet service, and I flip. I think I am going to have Pat sue for pain and suffering.

I do have to say that I am VERY proud of myself for keeping my sense of humor through this entire ordeal. Normally, I do not do well, but surprisingly I hung in there. I had coffee with friends this morning, and I PASSED ON THE BAILEY'S (impressed), and watching them laugh about the whole situation made me realize just how funny it was! DOES PAT REALIZE HE IS THE CLOSEST THING WE HAVE TO BEING A DOCTOR IN THIS HOUSE? Why would he be asking me what he should do!???

I would like to state for the record that in my next life I am coming back as a man! They are just RIDICULOUSLY incompetent when it comes to being sick!

You are exactly right!! Men could NEVER handle child birth!! I hate this time of year because Josh is impossible to be around with his allergies!! You would think it was the end of the world!! Lots of girls have allergies and it sucks, but they deal with it! Ugh! I love you, I'm glad to see that with all the negativity you still have your sense of humor :)

I was nodding my head in agreement over everything - especially the men being sick comments. Unreal isn't it? we get sick and we're still expected to do our "job" (being mom) they get sick and the world comes to a halt.

also totally freak and become psycho when my internet goes down. in fact I once exploded at Brooks b/c he did something to it and we lost it until I could figure out how to get it back up. As I said to him - I don't have much in my life you don't take this away from me! :) can you say "internet addicts anonymous?"
