Tough week

Al went away for work this past week and boy was it tough! Home alone with 4 kids 2 dogs 2 rats and 2 fish... Not that the pets were much trouble but you know what I mean....

I have to say that I take my hat off to the single parents of the world!!! How you do it just blows my mind!


We had a rough start..

I had to take Flower to the hospital because she got a nasty lump under her eye. After a 3 hour wait at the hospital we found out that she had a blocked tear duct. They were able to open it up and all this gunk came out!

The next day I lost Tiarna.
She went to a friends house and I was to pick her up 2 hours later! I got the address. When I left to pick her up (putting dinner in the oven to warm) Well I went up and down this street that I was told to.. Could not find the house ( the street is split in two by a huge water treatment plant)

After driving up and down the street for 20mins getting out and asking if anyone knew the house number. The numbers ended at 170 and then started again 279 the house I was looking for was 234...
So I rang 3 different friends who didnt know where this house was. After more calls and now 50 mins of going nutz I found the house!! it was two blocks from where I was looking... I was beside my self with fear and kicking myself that I didnt get a phone number! Flower was crying and Arliah was car sick!

Talk about earning the Worst Mother of the year award! And burning dinner!

That night Flower was up every hour so I was as well! I think her eye was really bothering her..

Feeling worn out and on the end of my rope Kagen was up most of the next night with Asthma...

And to top everything off because it wasnt a big enough week I drooped a boiling hot water kettle over my foot.... Can we get an OUCH!
