Bad Day 107--I surrender

I'm still sick and the doctor still doesn't know what is wrong. It's not gallstones, thank goodness, but I'm still unable to eat and too tired to do much. Oh, and Child 3 has lice. Lice! This is the child who has been growing out her hair for two years in order to be Rapunzel for Halloween and she has so much hair that we had to use two entire packages of the special shampoo stuff and it took an hour and 45 minutes to nit-pick her hair and all the while, I'm sick and keep having to stop and lie down because the smell isn't helping. And we had to change her sleepover birthday party tomorrow to dinner out, which actually isn't that bad but does involve calling everyone and telling them that plans have changed and why which is so embarrassing but the doctor told me that her kids have had lice so that makes me feel a little better.

But, on the good note side, the medicines I'm taking cause migraines as a side effect. OK, that wasn't good. But two good things did happen--our friends brought dinner, and "Betsy" sent me pizza from Taiwan which is I think the nicest thing anyone has ever done for me.

She also sent a link to a story about this shark who is having a worse day than me, but not by much.

A leopard shark like the one seen here is thought to have fallen from the sky onto a golf course in California.

It was probably picked up by a bird and then accidently dropped 4 miles inland onto a golf course, completely freaking out the grounds keeper, who rescued the shark and drove it back to the ocean where it miraculously survived and swam away. So thank you unlucky shark, for reminding me to be grateful that I don't play golf.


  1. So sorry this is an especially sucky week - when it rains, it pours! Thinking of you and hoping you feel better super soon.

  2. Please let me know if I can help! I'm happy to bring groceries or dinner by, just let me know. I'll dm you my number, call or text anytime (I'm serious!).
