Mother's Day Thoughts

I had a great Mother's Day.

It was better than my 30th birthday that I had the weekend before. My 30th birthday was spent in the E.R. because my daughter had boils on her diaper area that had become a bit infected and was causing her a fever, on top of the severe pain they were causing her. It seemed no matter how much I kept them clean, they kept getting worse, and we just couldn't wait for the normal doctor, and being still new to the area, we weren't sure where the urgent care clinics were. They didn't do much except let her wail in agony for hours, stuck an IV in her, then waited another hour before they actually hooked it up to anything. Then they gave her a half hour's worth of antibiotics, wrote a prescription (that was dosed way too strong for a 6-month old), and charged me over $1,300! (With No Insurance) In the end, the IV was probably not necessary, and all I really needed was just an Rx for a good antibiotic. Lesson Learned. They tried to yell at me for popping the boils to relieve the severe pressure, but that is the only thing that seemed to help heal it!

"Mom-Knows-Best" Rant: This is why they call doctors "Practicioners" = They have to keep practicing medicine because they don't have a clue what they're doing.

In any case, they're healing pretty good. They aren't causing her much irritation any more. This made Mother's Day so much nicer.

My parents sent me an azalea bonsai tree, and my in-laws sent me a box of tulips. My hubby took me and baby to San Antonio for the weekend. We were going to see the Alamo and Sea World, but it just got way too hot, so we just hung out at the hotel and ordered room service and bought a PPV of Ghost Rider. No complaints here! I had a lot of fun getting out of the house. When we came back, we visisted the new game store up in the Woodlands, the Fat Ogre. The owner let me paint a miniature for grins and giggles while I was there.

I have to go back to work. It seems I wasn't able to bring in any money on the side from home. I suck at sales. I dread it and avoid it whenever possible. But I did some today. "Already have a site", no answer, no answer, machine, no answer.... ugh.

So I put a few lines out at places, but I may have to back to the place I don't want to go back to. Too much gas, driving, bad management practices, mediocre pay, no insurance, but they love me and will take me back. Le sigh.

I'm also missing a lot of my old friends. I hope the best for She Travels' arriving son, but I haven't heard from her in a while. She's probably mad at me for some reason, and I'm probably a bad friend for not knowing why, but there it is. I tried emailing her and it got rejected as spam (which it never used to). I'm not sure if she blocked me, or her mail system has deemed my email as spam (which Has happened before for some reason, though I'm not sure why).

In any case, I hope all the mothers out there had a great day Sunday.
