Troubled Tuesday

Troubled Tuesday is basically my complaint day to complain about all the troubles I have, which could range from what is happening on TV shows to who knows what.

  • P seems to have gotten the same cold that S had a few weeks ago.  She woke up with a fever and then a few days later started with the discharge in her eyes and it turned into a gnarly cold.  Her fever was so weird.  Her neck and armpits were super-hot, but her forehead and temples were normal.  If I took her temperature on her forehead it was 98.4°, when I took it in her armpit it was 101.4°.  Because her neck was so hot I took that temp too and it was 100.8°.  It was the strangest thing that she had a temp in her armpit but not on her forehead.
  • It was super-hot last week and we got a break over the weekend, but the temp is crawling right back up again to the high 80s, low 90s.
  • I love to read in the summer.  More so than I do in the winter.  On average I read about a book a week.  In the summer I usually read 2-3 a week.  This summer I haven’t even been averaging 1 book a week.  I am so tired that I fall asleep as soon as I get in bed and when we are outside I have to pay attention to exactly what P is doing there is no sitting to read while the kids play.
  • I didn’t enter the Library Cake Decorating Contest this year.  I just haven’t felt like decorating a cake this summer.  S entered and I love the cake he made.


  • I am so over B being on shutdown at work.  It was supposed to be over at the end of July and now looks like it is going to go right up until S goes back to school in mid-August.  I cannot wait until he doesn’t work 60+ hours a week.
  • I started making S do a pack of cards a day to get back in the swing of things for school.  He can do addition, subtraction, sight words I, or sight words II.  He hates it, and honestly I don’t like doing them either.  It is worse than trying to get him to do his homework.

What is troubling you?

Disclaimer: I have never claimed to be any great writer. So any mistakes that are made are my fault. Sometimes I mix up names B, S, and P, but I think you can figure out who I am talking about. If you find any grammatical errors just fix it in your mind so it sounds right.
