Saw An Excellent Movie Today!!

This morning after dropping off my son, I went back to bed until 11:30. Then I got up and got dressed and ready to go out. I had something small to eat. Then my oldest daughter and I went to the South Common Theatres and Watched Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, my daughter’s treat!! It was so so good!!! We really enjoyed it! The last half an hour was constant action and excitement and was full of surprises and was super fun! I highly recommend it, assuming, of course, that you have seen the first one, which is also amazing!! Once it was over, we popped into Bed, Bath And Beyond because their flyer had a bunch of Harry Potter merchandise that my daughter wanted to check out. We didn’t actually buy anything, we just looked at things. Then we drove back to town. We grabbed two things from Sobeys and then went home. Once at home we had supper. Then we binge watched Charmed. I got my son into bed and watched a bit more of our show. Now I’m going to go to bed. Hopefully I’ll sleep!

Doggie Haircut

This morning I was bloody tired and I went back to bed as soon as I got home from dropping off my son at school. Last night I actually fell asleep when I went to bed, the problem is that I woke up at 4:00am and stayed awake until my damn alarm went off at 7:00am! Let me tell you that sucked!! I slept until noon. Then I had to take our small dog to the groomer. We found a local lady, she was super nice! She let me pay lower then her usual rate. My daughter actually paid for it. I dropped my dog off at about 12:30 and stayed for about a half an hour. She looks so much better!! Then I picked her up about an hour and a half later. Then I came home and I left again about 30 minutes later to pick up the kids from school. I brought them home, then I drove my daughter to dance. I drove back home and I made supper. There were enough leftovers for my hubby to eat before work. I cooked for my son, my oldest and I. After eating, my daughter and I watched a couple shows while my son watched some YouTube videos. Then my daughter was dropped off from dance. She was hungry, so I made her some food quickly, then I got my son into bed. I watched a couple more shows with my daughter then I got ready for bed. Now I’m going to attempt to get some sleep.

A Weird Day…

This morning my son still seemed a bit lethargic and out of it, so I let him stay home for another day. My daughter’s friend picked her up for school. My son and I fell back to sleep. We slept for a while. When he woke up he went on my phone and watched YouTube videos. Then I got up and went on my phone and made a couple walk-in dr appointments at the Beaumont walk-in clinic in town for this evening. Then my son and I stayed upstairs for a bit. Then I got dressed and went and picked up my daughter from school. We came home and she quickly changed and then I had to drive her to dance right away. I drove back to town and went to No Frills. I got a few groceries. Then I came home and made meatloaf. My oldest daughter helped me by chopping up some peppers, onion and garlic. Once it was in the oven, my hubby had to leave for work. My daughter’s walk-in appointment was first, so she had to leave. I stayed home and was with my son and kept an eye on the supper. They were taking forever to bring my daughter into a room. Even though my appointment wasn’t supposed to be until an hour after hers, it was getting close to my appointment time. She told the lady at the front desk, so she hopped into my van and came and picked us up. We all went back to the clinic and went into the little clinician’s room together. I needed a refill for my tummy medication and my daughter needed her nasal spray. We finally saw the dr, my daughter sure waited forever!! Then we dropped off our prescriptions at the pharmacy and went back home and finally were able to eat supper! We started watching a show, but we weren’t able to finish it, because I had to pick up my daughter from dance. I got her and we stopped at the pharmacy on the way home. They had 3 prescriptions ready for me and they cost more money then we had in the bank. So I had to ask them to hold onto one of them until I can afford to pay for it. I had my daughter’s bank card to pay for her prescription. It was about $43 though. Pretty expensive. She has zero health insurance right now and our coverage is crappy!! Once I had the prescriptions I went through the drive through at the bank with my daughter’s bank card and took out $40 for our dog’s grooming appointment tomorrow that she is paying for. Then we drove home. At home I went upstairs and finished putting my son to bed. Then I watched a couple shows with my daughter. Now I’m going to get ready for bed and attempt to get some sleep. Wish me luck with that…

Another Sick Kiddo

I went to bed at a fairly good time last night, but of course I didn’t fall asleep right away. I slept off and on. My son didn’t go to school today. I woke up at about 7:40. I made sure that my daughter was awake. She had a ride to school with a friend. I also called my son’s school while I was awake to let them know that he wasn’t going to be there today. Then I went back to bed for a while. It was my hubby’s birthday today. We didn’t really do anything for it though. He slept a lot of the day, since he had to work all night tonight. When I woke up I had something small to eat. Then I wrapped the two small gifts that we got my hubby. I picked up my daughter from school. Then we gave my hubby his gifts. I had to drive my daughter to dance at around 4:00. After I dropped her off, I went to my parent’s house while she danced, because it’s her short night tonight. I picked her up at 6:15 and we drove home. Then I made supper for everyone. I made soup for my oldest daughter and son, because they were both feeling sick (my oldest daughter started feeling sick early this morning) and I made something else for my other daughter and I. Then we watched a show and I got my son into bed. I went on my phone for a while. I got ready for bed and now I’m going to try to get to sleep. It never really happens…

Still A Little Sicky

Last night my son was up all night either moaning and groaning and holding his tummy because it was hurting him so much, or he was actually throwing up. He was finally able to keep down a few sips of water and some children’s gravol at 11:30am this morning. Then we both finally fell asleep and slept until about 2:30 or 3:00. That was about all of the sleep that we got. He spent the rest of the day and evening on the couch cuddled under blankets sipping chicken noodle soup and nibbling on saltine crackers. I had to drive my daughter to dance. My oldest daughter came with us. After dropping off my younger daughter at dance, we went to my parent’s house and visited with my parents and my aunt and my cousin again, since my daughter didn’t get to see them yesterday because she was working when we went to see them. We had supper with them. Then we played Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit. Afterwards, my daughter and I drove back to town. We stopped at the Sobeys and bought groceries for school lunches and a few other things and we also got a couple things at Shoppers. Then we went home. Once at home we put the groceries away. Then I got my son into bed. I got a couple things done. Then I read for a while and went on my phone. Now I’m feeling quite exhausted, let’s hope that I can actually get some sleep tonight. My son seems exhausted and will hopefully sleep all night. Fingers crossed that I do as well!!

A Sick Boy

I had an alarm set for 12:30 today. Last night I was in bed quite early. Much earlier than I have been getting to bed. I drifted in and out of sleep all night. I had hours at a time when I just laid there not sleeping and short periods where I actually slept. Sadly, the sleeping times were shorter than the awake moments. My son woke up before everyone else and went on my phone. He laid on the bed in between my hubby and I and watched YouTube videos. When I finally actually got up I talked to my mom. The pharmacy called me. They figured out that they can mix the medications together for the injection that the pharmacist has to give me. However, they now need to figure out if it needs to be injected sub-cutaneously or into the muscle. I simply don’t understand why they are only looking into one little part of the prescription each day. It’s very frustrating!! It’s taken them too long and they won’t even be able to do it tomorrow, because of the holiday. So I’ll be waiting until at least Tuesday now. Grrr… My hubby and son went downstairs together. I had a long, hot, relaxing shower. Then I had something small to eat and got dressed. My oldest daughter went to work. The rest of us dropped off my younger daughter at dance for her solo practice and then we went to my mom and dad’s house. My aunt is in town visiting from BC, also my cousin, her daughter was over as well. We played Wizard. My hubby had to leave to pick up my daughter from dance. When they got back my daughter joined in the game. My hubby was feeling tired. He sat on the couch and fell asleep. When we finished the game, everyone set the table. I went into the bathroom in my parent’s bedroom and gave myself one of my injections for my headaches. Then we all sat down for a delicious supper. Right when we sat down my son told me that his tummy wasn’t feeling well. He really didn’t feel good. So I told him to lie down on the couch. After supper, when I was helping my dad get stuff together for coffee, my son came running from the couch to the bathroom. I could tell that he was going to be sick, so I followed him into the bathroom. He got majorly sick. He went back onto the couch for a bit, while we had dessert and I had a cup of coffee. He got sick again. Then we went home. We were just pulling into the driveway when he started saying that he was going to be sick again. My hubby got him into the house quickly and he made it to the bathroom. I quickly got him ready for bed. I tried to give him children’s gravel for his tummy, but he couldn’t keep anything down. He fell asleep beside me in our bed. Then I got myself ready for bed. I went on my phone for a while. Now I’m going to try to get some sleep.

What Is This Thing Called Sleep?!

Last night was rough… I couldn’t fall asleep. Which is not exactly big news. I was still awake when my hubby came to bed at around 4:30am. I finally drifted off some time after that. However, I woke up early and couldn’t fall back to sleep. Then my alarm went off early, because my son was being dropped off at about 9:30 from the sleepover. My hubby went downstairs and I stayed in bed, but of course, once I was awake I was unable to fall back asleep. I was somewhat sleepy when my son came upstairs to say good morning. Then I laid here until about 12:30. Then I had to get up and get myself ready to take my son to a birthday party. After dropping him off I went to Sobeys and then to Rexall. They didn’t have any of my nasal migraine medication that they told me that they would have. Apparently I have to wait until they can order it on Tuesday. Also, they found the right prescription that the pharmacist is supposed to inject into me, but aren’t certain if the medications can be combined or not, so they couldn’t do it today. They may be able to do it tomorrow. They “forgot” to get the rest of the vials ready for me…sigh. My watch has been stuck on the same time for the past few days, so I went to a few places looking for the correct battery. I was just about to give up, but decided to check Home Hardware in a last ditch effort and Yay!! they had the correct one!! So now my watch is working again. When I came home I got a chicken cooking in the oven and peeled some potatoes, so that when it was time, they would just have to be turned on. Then I went upstairs to my room and gave myself an injection and laid down. I was exhausted and felt nauseous and had a super migraine all day. I was so tired that I couldn’t focus or think straight. All of these weird sleepless nights are starting to catch up with me. I set a google alarm, just in case I actually did fall asleep. I didn’t expect to. I just kind of laid there. I did drift in and out a bit. I got up when my alarm went off and went downstairs. My hubby had put the meat thermometer into the chicken like I’d asked and started the potatoes. I left and picked up my son from the birthday party. Then I came home and made the gravy. My younger daughter mashed the potatoes while I was gone and my hubby did the frozen veggies. My son had pizza and cake at the party and my oldest was at work, so my younger daughter, my hubby and I had supper. Then I made a plate of food for my oldest daughter and cleaned up. I was still feeling awful. So I went upstairs and laid down until it was my son’s bedtime. Then I got him into bed. Afterwards, I got myself ready for bed. Now I’m going to try to see if I can actually fall asleep. I really doubt it, sleep doesn’t seem to be in my cards…but hey, it’s worth a try right?!

Finally Talked To The Dr’s Office…Again

Last night, yet again, I couldn’t sleep. I had a horrible headache and was super nauseous. The last time that I looked at my clock it was 3:30. Then I heard my hubby come home from work at 6:00am and couldn’t fall back asleep. My alarm went off an hour later. After dropping off my son, my hubby and I had breakfast and watched The Good Doctor together. Then he stayed downstairs and I went up to bed. I called Dr Hauptman’s office back and talked to his nurse again. Then I went to bed. It took me a while to fall asleep. I slept until about noon, when my daughter was calling me from school. She wasn’t feeling well. My hubby went and picked her up from school. About 5 minutes after I got off of the phone with her Dr Hauptman’s nurse called me back. He wants me to increase my Topomax and he was faxing in a prescription to my pharmacist that is an injection that my pharmacist is supposed to give to me. I’m also supposed to continue with the injections that I give to myself. After I got off the phone with her, I went back to bed. I slept until it was time to get my son from school. I went downstairs and my hubby ended up picking him up, while I got my son’s sleepover stuff ready, because he was going to a friend’s house tonight to have a sleepover. When they got home I took my son to Shoppers to buy a small present with him for a birthday party that he is going to tomorrow. Then my daughter and I drove him to the sleepover. After dropping him off, we went to Sobeys and got some groceries. Then we came home and I cooked supper. After eating supper, my daughter and I watched a couple shows. Then we went to the Rexall to pick up her prescription and get my injection. They had no idea what injection I was talking about. They had just prepared a refill of the injections that I picked up last month. I told them that I was supposed to be getting a different injection today from the pharmacist. They didn’t know what I was talking about!! So now it looks like I have to wait until the long weekend is over and call Dr Hauptman back on Tuesday. What a pain!!! Also, they only were giving me 3 vials. I asked them if they owed me 5 vials, because last time I paid $26 for 8 vials and this time I was paying the same amount for 3!! She said, no, we only prepared 3 for you. I told her that I wanted all 8! So she said that I can pick up the rest tomorrow. Then she was just going to give me the vials. I had to tell her that last time they actually gave me the needles so that I could actually inject the medication that’s inside the vials. Wow!! Quite the gong show!! Anyway! After that mess, we came back home and watched a couple more shows, then we got ready for bed. It’s actually pretty late now. I just gave myself a dang needle, so hopefully I’ll be able to sleep!!

I’m going to try to sleep now.

Calling Dr Tomorrow Again

Guess what?! I have a headache and my tummy feels nauseous… shocking right?! My dr still didn’t get back to me. So I’m going to call him again tomorrow morning. I don’t want to wait for the whole long weekend to pass. Last night I was really not feeling well. The effects of the needle that I gave myself earlier in the evening had warn off and I laid in bed awake until about 4:30!!! That sucks! Especially just not feeling well. My alarm went off at 7:00, so I obviously didn’t get enough sleep. I went right back to bed once the kids went to school. I didn’t fall asleep right away, despite how tired I felt. I did finally fall asleep though. I picked up the kids from school. Then I drove my daughter to dance. I popped into Sobeys for a couple things on the way home. Then I made supper when I got home. My hubby ate quickly and left for work. Then my son and I ate. My oldest daughter was at work. After eating my son and I played a game that he made up. Then we went to the city to pick up my daughter and her friend from dance. We dropped off her friend and came home. I got my son into bed. My daughter came home from work. We watched a couple shows together. We’re going to watch another. Then I’m going to get ready for bed.

Still Nothing From The Dr

This morning I went to bed after the kids went to school. I was nauseous and had the infamous headache. My dr still hasn’t gotten back to me, which is very out of character for him. I’m still waiting. If I don’t hear from him tomorrow, then I’ll try again on Friday. I didn’t sleep as late today. The kids had early dismissal from school, so I picked them up, then we came home and my daughter actually had time for a snack after school and time to sit for a bit. Then I got gas in the van and drove her to dance. I stopped at the bank and at Sobeys on the way home. When I got home my hubby was exhausted and not feeling great, so he decided to stay home from work. I made some sweet and sour meat-balls for supper. My hubby and I watched The Good Doctor. Then I got my son into bed. My daughter got off work at 10:00. I watched a couple shows with her. I still am. Then I’m going to get ready for bed.
