Sam says: "mom why does my leg hurt so much?". Me:" it's probably growing pains.". Sam:"yeah I think your probably right cause like one leg feels longer than the other."
It's definitely a holiday around here. 2 kids with strep, one trying to get something, and a last week strep one now coughing and puking. It probably smells more of gag than of pine around here even though I'm melting pine wax like crazy. It's one of the only candle scents I like. I will be going thru a few cans of Lysol today and then I will have a fumes cough. Oh well, I will suffer for the greater good.
I also don't seem to make it long before an over use ailment pops up. Tennis elbow hurts & cortisone to help heal it makes me want to swear F words for about 12 hours. The last shot worked NOT at ALL so my fingers (on my left hand) are crossed it does this time or I'm doomed to have another right limb scar to match the other three. Maybe my body is trying to tell me I'm really left handed. Or, that I should die soon.
I'm not one of you freaks that do the elf thing (although we do have one but he stays in the same spot all month). I can't keep up with that every day thing. My kids do the traditional countdown calendars but they have little boxes for surprises. I decided that giving them the ornament on Christmas eve is lame so they will each get thiers this week in their advent.
