yesterday

 
Yesterday, I noticed three kiddos had runny noses. Today, those three are on antibiotics for double ear infections with the littlest one on breathing treatments.

Yesterday, I threw a load in the washer late at night. Today, upon opening the washing machine I realized I'd thrown in a diaper too. Gross.

Yesterday, we went swimming. Today, I've told my ear infected kiddos we can't go swimming. About 482 times.

Yesterday, I learned some very special friends are moving out of town. Today, I'm sad. Excited for their adventure, but still sad.

...
random post, i'm aware except to say, i sorta wish i was still on a tube in a friend's pool before i realized i was going to haul four kiddos to the docs and pharmacy, clean an exploded diaper out of the washer, and TRY TO PASSIVELY CONVINCE OUR FRIENDS NOT TO MOVE [I know you're reading this] - just kidding, you're going where you're called, DON'T MOVE, just kidding, we'll support you (DON'T MOVE) ....  :)

I'm not sure which is worse, the diaper explosion or us moving. Seriously, that would be my worst nightmare. I did read it, and I'm so thankful for your friendship. :) Your lawyer tendencies of persuasion could work on me...your very good at your job. I'm not dwelling on the realities at the moment...staying in happy world. I'm sure you'll get a crying phone call at some point. Beware.

Cry, Autumn. Julie loves people with red, puffy faces. She told me so. And I will tell you exactly what I told her when I found out about the move. To quote myself, "Noooooooooooooooooo!" Keokuk is getting some gems. Truly. Thankfully, Ottumwa still has the Canny's. No moving, you hear me? If you move, I will punch someone. How's that for my attempt to passively convince? Don't think I won't do it. Sniff, sniff.
