Here's my Saturday...How was yours? LONG-SOME LANUAGE

Saturday my husband had to work until 4p so I thought I'd take the girls to see their grandpa, great grandpa, great grandma and everyone else. This is my family that we are going to see. Hailey has only seen them twice and Carly haven't seen them before Saturday. Its also 1hr 1/2 drive.

Here's just a little something about whats going on with the three of them:

My dad--he has liver cancer and something in his neck is abnormal.

My grandpa--he has diabetes and it has gotten so bad that he doesn't have much longer to live.

My grandma--she has heart problems, she has broken bones, and the damn dog knocked her down and she hit her tail bone and it broke the 12th verbrae that goes to the lungs so they had to go and do surgery and now she has pins in her back from it.

So the girls and I get there about 11 45a and we stop at my cousin's house and get her and her baby and they go with us to Jonesboro to the hospital to see if grandma was going to be able to go tomorrow or not. They let her out so we go back to Harrisburg and we are there for about 1hr.

I looked at my dad and asked him if he wanted to go with us to walmart in Jonesboro and he said yeah so I made a deal with him that if he would cut it bread (can't remember if I spelled that right or not) and thim his hair then we would go. So he got that done and we headed for Jonesboro.

We went to walmart and walked around and bought a few things and waited on one of my aunts to get there. Then we visit with her for a bit. We were in there for about 1hr 1/2 before we got out of there, but before we could go home we had to go back to the hospital that my grandma was in and get her medcine that was left there.

We get back into Harrisburg and we turn down my cousins road to see if she wanted to go to the fair for a little bit before I went back home. Well here's what we came up on:

We COULDN'T get down the road because there was 4 state troops in front of my cousins house (she lives with her mom) and my uncles truck is in this big ass ditch across the road. We didn't know what the hell was going on, but Hailey (my daughter) was flipping out. So we got her and her sister inside. I asked my aunt what happen and this is what she said:

My uncle had been drinking and he was driving with one of his drunk friends in there with him. He pulled up to my cousins house and asked her boyfriend if he would drive him down the road to a drug dealers house and he said no and that pissed my uncle off so he stormed out of the house and got into his truck. When my aunt and cousins boyfriend looked out the window they seen my uncle hit the ditch. They run out there because they seen him try and get out and they begged him to stay in the truck, but he couldn't because he seen the state trooper (that lived across the street from them) pull out of his driveway and start to come over there. My uncle runs inside while my cousins baby is sleeping and locks the door and wouldn't let anyone it. My aunt beats on the door and tell him to let her in that it was her house not his and that the trooper just wanted to talk to him. My uncle says no, but he will come out if the trooper will back up so the trooper backed up and my uncle opened the door and seen that the trooper was walking towards the door again so he leaves the door unlocked, but my aunt heard the back to slam (theres nothing but a big field) so thats what she told the trooper. She goes in to make sure the baby is ok. The trooper runs back to his car and calls for more help so 3 more troopers show up. They all went in the back in the field to look for him then they brought out the k9 dog. Thats when they seen the skid marks were he fell in the mud. They FINALLY found him after 30mins and guess where he was...he a damn 3ft tree in the neighbors yard.

After they found him 4 Harrisburg cops show up. And we still couldn't leave until the wrecker picked up the truck. So we waited for that and I fed my baby. Then we were off to the fair. Oh yeah, the cops left my uncles friend because he didn't run.

We stayed for about a hr then we took my dad home. On our way home I miss my turn and ended up in Newport WHERE I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT so I called my husband and was going crazy, flipping out, nervous, and scared. So I had to turn around and find my Little Rock exit then we were on our way home. We didn't get home until 1a.

OH WOW...when we got home my husband had been drinking since he got home from work about 4 30p and was still up when we got home.Then he had to get up and go to work at 7a and he wasn't to happy about that, but it was his choice to stay up...I kept telling him to go to bed but he wouldn't. I'm just glad that I didn't have to clean up throw up...EEEWWW. But I tell you what he did do..he got bbq sauce ALL over my floor. And he doesn't even remember why he had the bbq sauce.

Wowie, that's crazy!

Let's see....Friday, I worked a double (3 pm till 730 am). Got home around 9 am Saturday morning. Played with my son till he went down for a nap around noon. Slept till 3. Got up, went and ran some errands. Came home. Husband took my son down to see MIL (2 hour drive each way). While he was gone, I cleaned a little and got ready to go out. He came home, we went to dinner, then drove an hour to the casino. Got to the casino and realized I forgot my license at home, so they wouldn't let me in. Drove home. Finally went to sleep around 4 am.

Woke up Sunday around 1:30 pm. Went grocery shopping. Came home, put the groceries away and cleaned a little more. Then, we went to FIL's house for a cookout. Went home and hubby went to work.

Monday, I woke up around 9 am. Went to pick up my son from MIL's house, then went to work. Got home around 12:30 =)


As a side note, last year, my mom's boyfriend (Brian) was driving drunk. He's an alcoholic and is a maniac when he's drunk. He also had a DUI suspended license at the time. Anyway, he was driving late at night, and he flipped his car. Of course, people called 911. Well, Brian didn't want to get another DUI....so, he went and hid in a corn field. The cops never found him. He stayed there all night, then walked home. The next day, he went down to the police station to see about getting his car back. They couldn't prove he was driving at the time, much less prove he was driving while drunk--so, he paid the impound fee, got his car back, and went on his merry way....

OH WOW...the casino sounds fun but that had to sux driving all that way and then realize you 4got your license.

Thats funny...the part about your mom's boyfriend (not that he was drunk and driving) just that he was never found. Well my uncle is to stupid to do something like that...for peeps sake they found him in a 3FT TREE come on...that should tell you something right there. He is also an alcoholic, had DUI's, unpaid tickets, and a warrant for his arrested.

wow...girl I don't think I could hardly a 3 1/2 drive with Hailey wanting to stop and pee every 10mins, get out and go in places and Carly waning out of her car seat and throwing a fit. It was hard enough driving the 1 1/2 with them both.

 Sounds like you had a real humdinger of a week end to me.Sorry.Well mine was sucky too. It is rather long.

 Lets start off on Thursday.I wake up with a sore throat on the left side.Didn't think much about it.Thought that I sleeped with my mouth open.I get fired from one of my jobs or as she put it.I am no longer needed to do my job here.They found a company to do it for cheaper..Went Through the day with a sore throat.No biggy.

 Wake up Friday and it is still there,but hurts way more.I couldn't swallow.My whole body is throbbing with pain.All of my joints hurt.I am vomiting all the time.Cannot keep anything down.Can't keep water down even.Can't stand without getting dizzy.Am sweating all the time,but I am freezing cold.All of my hair was standing on end because I felt so cold,but if I was touched I was boiling hot.I had three children to take care of,but wasn't able to (my two children and the little boy that I nanny for).So I called my mil to come and get the children or stay with me because I couldn't do it anymore.Which was not an easy thing I might add.so no bashing me!!So she comes over and looks at me setting on the bathroom floor and takes the children with her.Calls her dad (my husband's grandfather) to come and take me to the doctor right away.I get there and they take me into the one of the waiting rooms in the back right away.I didn't even set in the "lounge" place with the other people.I looked that bad.They had me set there for 45 minutes before the physicians assistant came in to take my vitales.Tells me that I have a temp. of 101.3 and that I have abnormally low blood pressure.Leaves the room and the doctor comes in 20 minutes later.He looks in my mouth at the back of my throat and says that it looks like I have strep throat.Asks me a few questions and leaves.His nurse comes in and takes a swab of my throat and I have to try and pee in a cup.Then I go back into the room and wait.The doctor comes in ans says that I have a severe case of strep throat and I need to drink more water or it will go to my kidneys.Gives me a prescription for two different meds and I leave.Come home and sleep.All I wanted to do was sleep.Get my meds an hour or two later.Don't know.I was in la-la land with a higher fever then before.Take my meds and I am out cold.Wake up only to get sick.I knew that my children and the little boy that I nanny for were in good hands.Husband was watching the little boy until his mom came to pick him up.My mil dropped him off so his mom could pick him up.They were fine with it.Understood why I had her watch him for a while and my husband too.

 Wake up Saturday to the same thing.I was vomiting all day and couldn't walk well.Didn't eat or drink much.Children were sad because mommy was sick and couldn't play.Dad had to "cook" and take care of us all.I feel like crud because I can't hold them or do anything other then get sick.Meds are starting to kick in though.I could talk by the end of the day at least.

 Sunday I feel good enough to take help take care of the childrensome and get my own glass of water.Do some light house work.Keep small amounts of food down and liquids as well.Still fell like death wormed over.I still can't kiss on my children.I still am getting dizzy and vomiting off and on all day.My husband is doing most of the work around here.By night fall I feel about 70%better.

 Today,Monday, and I am felling about 89% better and have been doing everything around here and taking care of the children alone.The room is no longer spinning when I stand up to walk.I haven't gotten sick all day.Yippy!!I am mom again,but I still can't give kisses.No bashing I was really really sick for a few days there.I had a sucky week end as well.
