I need some patience ladies.

Extreme toothache, headache, not enough sleep, distant death in the family ( don't feel bad for me - happened in hubbys' family) ...

suffice it to say I'm having a hard time staying "even". And yet here's my 7 yr old..

why do we have to go to church?

"hey look its a k9 (looking at a german shepard)" bringing up the conversation about how all dogs are canines... which leads to "why is it called a german shepard, is it german? how did pugs get their names? is it because of their faces?"

"why do cats close their eyes when they lick themselves?" I REALLY had to restrain myself from "would you want your eyes open when if you were licking your butt?"

which turned into...
"can I grow up to be a princess? grandma said princess diana did." oh fml. I am NOT busting the princess dream this morning.

where did daddy go? he went to a funeral. whose? why? um because aunt debbies mom died (debbie is my husbands ex sister in law but we are still close to her) so then comes the tear filled eyes as I explain aunt debbies mom died, she was very old, it was her time, she couldn't get better... omg.......

can I have pudding for breakfast? can you serve it to yourself? yes. then yes you can have pudding for breakfast.

followed by an inane rambling about "do you remember two years ago when we got all our school supplies from target?" um no I don't. We, uh, never get ALL the school supplies from anyone place - not really.... which lead to a 30 min conversation where she tried to remind me about the school supplies we did get.. omfg....

then...

when will daddy get home? is he in bisbee? is phoenix in tucson?..... oh holy hell....

these conversations are daily and usually are NOT a trial but today - god help me, I don't have it.

HELP??????

LOL Sharon, you crack me up sometimes.
Tylenol then Ibuprofen 2 hours after, you can alternate between the two, right up to the maximum does of each, they target different pain areas of the brain. My dentist recommended this to me last year, and my midwife told me the same for the afterpains after my last baby.
Good Luck and hope you feel better.

Hey Sharon, stop biting your toenails and you will not get infections on your feet! Just joking...yeah steak would not be the way to go unless you blend it to the consistancy of water. Go luck..hope you get it fixed soon

hhmmm wisdom teeth were removed over 15 years ago. so its doubtful....

I have a nasty feeling that my previous dentist, who had a stroke and was hospitalised before doing some extensive dental work on me (badly) - might have contributed a weird infection I got afterwards - THAT infection could be plaguing me still has he had started work on 3 or 4 teeth but hadn't finished any - I took ALLLLLLL the meds for 3 or 4 months, got majorly sick from them, got toenail fungus because of them (how the hell does that work???) before my mouth was healed enough to finish and redo ALL his work.

Gross ain't it? fml. lmao!!!! I know you guys wish me the best and this will work out, eventually. LOL I'm just gonna moan a lot until then!

Oh and my modem took a shit this morning! HAHAHAHA!! Its still under warrany so they're fed-exing a new one but geeze what a PITA.

That's what I was thinking too, Laura...I truly wish you the best Sharon and hopefully you're able to get some relief SOON!

ACK! Stupid modem.

I just thought.... steaks might work for him but what about me? LOL. How am I supposed to eat them?

I'm sitting here, clock watching, waiting until my dentists office opens. Hopefully he'll call in a prescription or have a recommendation.

This is the weirdest pain ever. Its like a swelling under the teeth. My wisdom teeth were removed long ago so that isn't it. Its also um referred pain? I'm pretty sure its a tooth on top that its hurting, but sometimes I feel pain in the lower jaw and sometimes on the other side of my mouth. Its super irritating.

:: sigh ::

I would try tylenol to give my stomach a break (taking advil with full glass of milk or after eating) but I'm afraid if I skip a dose of advil to try tylenol - the pain will get ahead.

[deleted account]

Steaks always work like a charm! ;)

Have you tried Tylenol instead of Advil....although I find Advil works better, Tylenol is much more gentle on my tummy! I've got some leftover T3's I could send your way?

I'd love to do it the quick and quiet way with liqour! But that just makes me sleepy, lol and I've found that sleeping with adventurous bold kids leads to issues. So I prefer to stay awake!

The good news? is that half a bottle of advil yesterday and regular applications last night and this morning seem to have gotten a little ahead of the pain. The bad news is that all that advil is doing one helluva number on my stomach. :: sigh ::

At least hubby is home today to handle the kids. But he's just going to glare at me for sitting on the couch with my laptop. He can kiss my yellow ass.

Maybe if I get steaks for dinner tonight he'll keep his mouth shut so I won't have to verbally slay him.

How come no one has mentioned alcohol yet??? Kill 2 of Sharons birds with one of Laura's kids stones! Numb your tooth ache and help drown out the chatter!

[deleted account]

I too live with curious george when I've had enough I usually say why don't we call grandma & see what she is doing? She usually occupies him on the phone for a little while.

oh sharon!! she could be screaming her head off, and isn't!! that's good right?!....
my day was spent at the hospital for my 3 year olds eye appointment that i had to drive an hour to get to, waited THREE hours to get finished, and of course an hour back. the rest of my day consisted of a free kids movie (imagine all the screaming brats there, including my own) and the science museum.... i could use some advil and alcohol right now-yes combined, lol!!

Thanks again guys.

Me too. Wouldn't you know I'd have a dentist who isn't open on Monday? Not to mention - I refuse to pay the ridiculous "emergency" fee so I'll be taking his next available appointment.

fighting around here sucks - we're always one upping eachother on insults and sometimes it gets ridiculously funny. And yes, I crack myself up which ruins the fight.

Thanks guys.

I'm not actually doing better - still in a lot of pain - but knowing you guys sympathise helps!

"heeheeheehee - its my kids - they do this to me..

:: sigh :: I've tried to live it down, beat it down but it still comes out."

Either that or you're a little too happy from all that Advil :P

Sounds like an interesting time.. Something I am sure to be in for with my son in a few years. Sorry I can't help, but I had to read b/c you're too funny. Hope you feel better!

Bird infidelity...lmfao! I had a good laugh reading the comments...not so much the OP, sorry you're having a tough go, but it looks like all you needed was a good vent Sharon. Here's hoping tomorrow is a better day for you!

I'd give my right arm to be a fly on the wall in your house, Sharon. I bet it's thoroughly entertaining.

Duck eggs are HUGE and my chickens lay brown eggs, I imagine there is some REAL confusion going on.

well I already mentioned we raise birds for eggs, but my chickens are all girls - so my daughter figures that if chickens can't hatch eggs, wild birds can, right? LMAO I SEE the logic and its killing me. So she put a bunch of unfertile chicken eggs into the empty wild nests. I wonder when its going to start raining rotten eggs around here?

When Eve was little, she used to collect rocks...nothing special about them (well, she WAS particular...I could just never figure out the pattern) anyhoo, she used to pick them up and make me carry them in my purse then put them in her "treasure box" she used to stare at them with a magnifying glass all the time, I tried to thin the pile once, and she totally knew which ones were missing...little weirdo.

@Laura - OHHH!! yeah I've been CAREFULLY stepping over her spilled baggy of "treasures". Um for christs sake - colored broken glass! garden snail shells (ew) some old seashells, a pecan ( she actually held it up and said "oh! heres' my old nut" lmfao) some rusty bolts... the bolts are "history" don'tcha know? and history is important. god she's weird. A green rock - its like leprachaun green. I asked her if she painted it, she says 'no'. someone did. I wouldn't put it past my husband to have done it, then present it to her as a 'treasure'.

So I sit here sucking down advil - probably giving myself an ulcer - watching Untamed heart - and spazzing like a jr high school girl. lol.

@meghan oohhhh she loves her journals!!! they're currently filled with drawings of her favorite pokemon. I told her once that a journal was expressing yourself, in words, pictures or whatever. so half of it is art and the rest her writings.

no ukelele...but they'll build one out of a kleenex box and elastics if you give 'em 5 minutes (they are upstairs finally cleaning last year's seashells to make jewelery to sell at the beach this year)...it was the constant questions to which I was referring to...and the letting them eat pudding out of sheer exhaustion (or pain) ;P

[deleted account]

Funny story (or maybe not....maybe it's one of those "you had to be there" funny stories?)....anyhow. Roxanne is 23 months and a friggin parot. She doesn't stop. She copies EVERYTHING I say. She copied my saying, "fuck my life!" this morning. "Fuck my wife, mommy?!" GAH! I couldn't stop laughing....is that wrong? Is it wrong that I thought it was unbelievable cute and that I sometimes say funny things just so I can hear her say them?

lol I have 3. The oldest has already started school. The younger boy stayed over at a friends house last night. So in some ways my potential frustrations are lower, lol. But because her brothers aren't here - she has no one else to pester! She's a sweetie and maybe I shouldn't have let her have that pudding (sugar!) for breakfast, hahaha!

I begged her to let mommy have some quiet time and to save the questions for later. I told her to write them all down and we'd figure it all out later. She sighed and asked if any of her friends were home... she's now at their house WITH her ukelele.

My son who is 7 is just like that….talk, talk, talk….all day…but now hes starting to get into girls and ask the questions of “How do I talk to girls! Im like your 7 go play…

“No mom what do I say to them! I really didn’t know what to say to the kid…

so I said “Make sure your breath doesn’t stink, don’;t say hey baby, and don’t pick your nose! He laughed thought it was funny…



but when I have had enough of the 21question game…I give him my “Serious” look and he will leave me be for a good 30min to an hr..LOL

Oh I know the feeling well. I have two little chatter boxes that need to know everything about everything about everything and how it got there and why? why? why? why? why?

I have no real help except tylenol and deep breathes. (((HUGS)))
