I Had a Monday

Yesterday, quite against my will, I Had A Monday.  You know what I mean -- when things go wrong left and right, everything you touch ends up on the floor, you manage to be sick out of the blue, and a kid hoarfs in your living room.  You've never had a Monday?  Lucky you.  I did, just yesterday.  Here it is, in bullet form:  
Things That Just Made My Monday
  • I woke up sick as a dog.  
  • I contemplated calling the daycare parents to say stay at home, but it was 7:40 which is entirely too late to re-route anyone.
  • My stomach spent the entire day rebelling, but I managed to keep it in its place for the most part.
  • Child #1 arrived "with a cold".  
  • Child #1 took two bites of breakfast and heaved all over herself and the high chair in which she sat.
  • Child #1 spiked a fever and went on home.
  • Our water bill came.  It tripled in the month of March.
  • We got the bill for Brian's MRI.  We may need to sell his kidneys now, if you're interested in purchasing one.
  • The next occurance proved beyond a shadow of doubt that I am indeed not pregnant.
  • I worked 13 hours in this condition, and then crashed hard.

Longest Monday ever.  If you know me in real life, you know just how well I deal with vomit, and with bills, for that matter.  Luckily, Brian took care of dinner and I spent the rest of the day (all two hours of it) on the couch.  Today has been moderately better (less of other people's bodily fluids on me, for sure) and I'm really hopeful for tomorrow.  Maybe by Thursday, I won't feel like death.  Yay for Tuesday!

I had a Monday too....no hand eye coordination to save my soul, and it seemed like every patient I laid my hands on needed a friggin' IV catheter. I felt "icky" too - like my stomach was going to reverse gears. Then I had a funeral viewing to attend. Indeed not a good day at all.
