Have you ever had one of those days?

Have you ever had one of "those" days? One of those days, that when it ends, you wish you had just stayed in bed all day--never leaving the house? That was my day today. I have two little girls with bronchitis and massive ear infections. I had 6, yes 6, prescriptions filled for the two of them....Then it was off to the eye doctor for Corbin. He has tear ducts blocked in both eyes, and will have surgery next Wednesday. While buckling the kids back into their seats, after the eye doctor, I happen to notice a nearly flat tire. SO...after sitting in a pediatricians office with kids that have every type of cough and wheez that I've ever heard, and then moving on over to the eye doctor where we sat for an hour before being called back (no food or drink allowed in a waiting room filled with hungry little children...I hope they don't care that I broke that rule many times), and a "really" classy tire repair place for an hour and 1/2 while watching Dora, Diego, and Backyardigans...I was REALLY glad to be back home. I wasn't too concerned that breakfast dishes were still in the sink, or that the laundry was still in the washer. I was home. Maybe, since it's 9:15 pm, I should go start on those dishes.
Please pray for us this week. No parent likes to see their child go into surgery. Corbin's surgery will be Wednesday, Jan. 23, if all goes as scheduled. It's not a very invasive surgery(so we're told), but they still have to put him to sleep and operate on his eyes.
