Thankful for Bedtime

Look at this amazingly crafty display someone put up in my kids’ school.  Seriously adorable, right?  I have a thing for felt, I tell ya.

Oh!  And pilgrims, too!

We had a conference with J’s kindergarten teacher today.  Also met with a mortgage guy about refinancing.  Plus two separate non-illness-related vomiting  episodes.  Went shopping for winter boots with M, and she badgered me about the utter lack of Santa Claus until I couldn’t even coyly chirp about how girls who don’t believe don’t get presents anymore.  I just had to throw in the towel, and then she started crowing about the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny and I was like, can we please just stop talking about this?  At dance class, J got confused and ended up sobbing.  Oh, and at dinner I gave J the Heimlich Maneuver because she was choking on her own phlegm and, for whatever reason, chose not to answer me when I repeatedly asked, in an increasingly frantic tone, “Can you breathe!?!”  Turns out that she was fine, but it didn’t prevent us from bursting into tears in a little puddle on the dining room floor.  Rather a stressful day, and I still haven’t started the holiday list, or even the things-to-do-before-we-leave-on-vacation list.  And because I’m an idiot, I have a vet check up appointment for Isis first thing in the morning.

I’m going to work on thinking of something perky and cheerful to share with you tomorrow, but if anyone has any suggestions, you know where to email me.
