Joel's had bad allergy eyes the past few days. I've been doing drops since friday but they haven't done much. So we went to the ped today, and he says Joel has a little bit of a bacterial infection in one eye. So we got stronger allergy drops AND antibiotic drops. He can go back to school tomorrow if his eyes aren't goopy.

In the middle of all this, my cell phone died. Permanently. I can't not have one...it's a lifeline for me. Particularly as a single parent, since I'm the only person school or dc can contact if there's a problem, it's really helpful if there's ONE number they can use to reach me 24/7. So I had to file a claim on it and go get a new one today.

Now we're home and I'm SO glad! Time to rest.

Thanks, girls. We're still home today. He's still got a lot of discharge in his eyes and they are very painful. My boss is probably going to fire me but I don't care. I'm so sick of her and of this job. I spent most of the morning looking at the online classifieds and emailing resumes.

I got my replacement phone yesterday, which is a relief. I'm such a wuss about going without it, particularly since the night I had a flat tire on I-95 at like 11:30 pm. If it weren't for the cell phone and AAA I'd probably still be sitting there!

The ped yesterday said Joel could go to school once his eyes are clear, so hopefully tomorrow they'll be better enough to go. He has a bacterial infection, probably as a result of his allergies.

Julie, how are Jon & Erika today?

Jon has a runny nose today and can barely talk.Both have a low grade fevers this morning.Erika still acts like she feels bad and so does Jon.Erika says her head hurts and her stomach is tore up again.And they both have been coughing and sneezing too.Erika has also been saying that her eyes hurt.Hopefully they will get seen by a DR tomorrow.Thanks for asking about them.

Hope Joels eyes get feeling better soon.((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))Good luck with the job hunting let us know what you find out.Let us know also how Joel is doing.
