In case you needed more proof that I am having a crappy week...

Yesterday was annoying. I had too many things to do, not enough time to do them, and also had to squeeze in time to take me and Micah to the doctor. We both have ear infections. Our doctor called us in prescriptions to the Walmart Pharmacy. I tried to pick them up yesterday, but because the Walmart pharmacy is so awesome and on top of things it wasn't ready on time, and like I said... epically busy, didn't have time to wait around for them to get their butts in gear and fill them. I figured we could live with our ear infections for an extra 12 hours.

This morning I just wanted to chill out, relax and then go sit and watch Jiujitsu instead of doing it since I am all broken.

That didn't happen.

I woke up this morning to Zaile vomiting.

That alone drove me insane.

My kids aren't sick very often, and for the past two months they have been sick on and off. It is getting old. I feel bad they are sick, and taking care of sick children kind of sucks.

Anyway, Zaile fever starts spiking, and I freak out and take her to the doctor. Her fever got up to 103.8 before I tossed her in the car and took her in.

The doctor calls her in a prescription as well. I needed to go there anyway, so I head there after the appointment. Mine was filled, as was Zaile's. Micah's was not... it was never called in. I called my doctor; they accidentally called it in to a Walgreens. They tell me they will call it in to the right pharmacy. I asked the lady at Walmart how long it will be... she tells me an hour. So, I go poke around Walmat for about 40 minutes.... at which point Zaile starts to vomit all over the place. All over me, all over herself, all over my cart full of groceries... Awesome. It takes me about 15 minutes to get it all cleaned up. So, I go back to the Pharmacy to get Micah's medicine. Still not ready. I go to the drop off window to see how long it will be.... Still not called into the right Pharmacy.


So, I explain to the lady as nicely as I could that my kid was super sick, throwing up all over Walmart, and how I just waited an hour for nothing. I asked her if I called my doctor and had her call it in while I was standing there if there was anyway they could expedite it so I could just take my sick kid home. She pretty much told me, I don't care how sick your kid is, it wasn't her problem and I would have to wait two hours just like every one else.

I swear to you, I have never wanted to choke someone out so much in my whole life. But I was covered in vomit, holding my sick vomited on I opted to bite my tongue and just take Zaile home and pick up Micah's meds the next day.

So, I pay for my cart full of vomited on things... one of which was a 24 pack of bottled water, and leave.

When I was unloading my cart, I was talking on the phone, explaining to Allie how I wished death on every single person in the Pharmacy at Walmart, so I was loading my grocery getter with one hand. When I got to the water, I grabbed it by the plastic on the side, and tried to kind of underhand toss it into the back of my car.

The plastic ripped mid toss, and the water flew out of my hand. It landed nicely in my car, but the force and momentum of the throw... now minus the 24 bottles of water.... carried my hand up to my face.

I punched myself directly in the eye.... so hard I drew blood, and gave myself a little mouse on my eye lid.

I got white hot angry for about 3 seconds. Then, I realized I had just punched myself in the eye in a crowded parking lot, and started laughing.

Moral of the story... next time someone pisses you off, punch yourself in the eye. It will make you feel better.


  1. I don't know that "better" is the word I would pick. But at least it will make you forget what you were mad about to start with. :P

    Sorry you had such a rough day. Hope you and the kids get well soon.

  2. Hmm, I don't know if a self inflicted punch to the eye makes you feel better. But it does distract you.

    Tonight at open mat I got a heel to my eye while messing around with yoga guy. It sure did distract me while he was taking my back.

    ;) <- is what I look like now.

    Hope you and your little ones are feeling better.
