Oh Say Can You See?

March 28th, 2005

Yes, Wacky Girl refers to “The Star-Spangled Banner” as “that song the girl sings at the hockey game.” This fractures me, as my Granny would say.

My dear friend A went back to school today, working on her pre-reqs in hopes of getting her nursing degree. SHE IS SO COOL! I am absolutely extremely proud of her and you should be, too. She works full-time, has three rowdyass sons (one of whom is my daughter’s Booty Dancing buddy), plus a rowdyass husband, and a household to run, family and community responsibilities, pets to feed, flower beds to weed and yadda-yadda and SHE WENT BACK TO SCHOOL!

So just don’t give me some line about how busy you are, overextended, stressed out, etc. You can make shit happen, in your very own world. Keep it going, A.

Also, this means that soon she will be able to answer such taxing medical questions as: Exactly how friggin’ long are you contagious with pinkeye, once you’ve started the eyedrops? Yes, Wacky Boy has pinkeye it is about disgusting. He has been taking three-hour naps since he’s been sick, though, so that’s kinda nice. (He gave up napping around the time he turned 2.) Also, WG and WB both are still running fevers of 102 degrees, off an on, and frankly, I am getting tired of playing nursemaid. I love them and all, but the snot factory needs to close down production. I had to go to the store and buy four more boxes of generic-brand Kleenex (that’s trademark, in case anyone’s reading this).

Yes, we’ve been to the doctor’s once and are going back tomorrow.

    Poor babies, especially sweet little WB. Pinkeye usually clears up in 7-10 days. Don’t share towels or wash cloths with the wee darling and practice frequent hand washing. Although I’m not a medical expert, nor do I play one on TV, I do have a few tricks up my sleeve. This one is http://www.kaiserpermanente.org. Anyone can use it. It is a wealth of healh information.
    BTW, thanks for the kudos!

    That A is just the best! I am so proud of her, too! She will make the BEST nurse. Hey A, in which course do they teach how to file down the hypodermics and put the bed-pans in the freezer??? Just kidding! You’ll be a NICE nurse. If I can help with the Rowdyass bunch, let me know! Hugs!

    Hope the WackyKids are all well soon. This too shall pass…
