Watching the clock, Tick Tick Tick...

Counting the seconds till hubby comes home from working today as he had to make up some hours he owed from the past 2 months due to Yom Tov, doctor appt, etc. I have been stuck in the house for the past 2 days with 5 kids. I am going for a sanity break as soon as hubby comes home. I am dressed and ready to flee..umm..err..I mean go. :)

First of all, #1 had a bad bronchitis type cough. I called the doc that makes house-calls. (NOT MED VISIT..those incompetent 2bit doctors.) He said #1 has bronchitis but can go to karate. I send #1 to karate with the bubbe and they went out to lunch after. I giv #1 his zithromax. he has no fever and seems ok. a few hours later, he is under the covers with a fever. I give him some childrens motrin. I guess the zithromax takes a day to kick in. During this time, #2 decides now is a great time to hide her expensive glasses! ARG!!!!! I have looked EVERYWHERE!!! I phoned my mother in law for help in looking, and she could not find them either. I am about to cry I am so frustrated. During this looking time #3 takes apart the half broken doll crib I got from a garage sale where the seller neglected to tell me its falling apart. (it looked sturdy until I got it home where the whole thing just fell apart and needs to be constantly put together again.) I phoned hubby up, told him I am NOT cooking meatballs and spaghetti tonight. Forget it. Tonight is a veggie burger night. I am really cranky and need a time out, outside of the house :) I am tempted to go have ice cream for dinner, but that would not be good as I am trying to lose weight, not gain some more.

Hubby should be home any second IY"H. Yay! I am going to go wait by the door and as soon as it opens, I sprint. :) Just KIDDING!!!!!!
