On to a better day!

If someone were to tell me to describe how my day went yesterday in one word I would have to say horrible. I had to take Kylie to the doctor yesterday for some weird mysterious thing she has going on with her legs. It turns out she has Henoch-Schonlein Purpura. What a mouthful right? The disease itself is not what was so bad, the doctor visit was. Her appointment was for 3:10. We did not even see the doctor until 4:30. I kid you not. Then Kylie had to have her blood drawn and Sophie freaked out. She cried so hard for her sister, it was just heartbreaking. All of the kids were so tired, hungry, and irritable when we left. 
I had to stop to buy milk on the way home so I told the girls they could grab a candy bar. Not something I normally do, but they had to sit in the doctors office for two and a half hours so I felt they deserved something. So Audrey and Kylie hurried up and picked theirs out and Sophie had another meltdown in the store because she couldn't decide what to get.
This was me.
Then we had to sit in construction traffic for twenty minutes outside our neighborhood. We finally got home and I made Audrey and Kylie start on their homework. Then when I was getting ready to put dinner on the table my parents walked in. And stayed. And stayed. And stayed. They finally left at 7:20 when I was telling Audrey and Sophie to go pick out a book for me to read to them. I finally got to sit down and eat my cold dinner around 8:00 last night. Yum! So I'm crossing my fingers and *hoping* that today goes much better. If it doesn't I may just have to have some of this tonight.
