Rain, Rain, Go Away...

Sometimes when it rains it pours. While my husband is away, golfing working, he has left me to deal with a sick child, numerous soccer parents and now, the rash from hell. Yes, the money is good, but really, can I put a price on my sanity? Why yes, yes I can. The good news is the added income has allowed me to invest heavily in Aveeno products. Who says I can't find the silver lining to this cloud?

But the rain keeps on pouring, even out of silver lined clouds. A very good family friend has recently passed away and it breaks my heart to write about it. So I won't. But funerals are not my strong suit and I am not certain I will be able to handle this one well. Too many memories, too many emotions.

Added to that, my lovely darling daughter is experiencing complications with her recovery and so I am off to hand hold and play nice with the nurses again at our lovely hospital.

So forgive me dear internet, if my posts are sporadic and infrequent these next few days. It appears life does not always stop for blogging.

But as I slather on my oatmeal, swaddle up my daughter and find a suitable outfit for a funeral, I will be hard at work, looking for my sense of humor. Because I am beginning to think my husband took it with him.

He better bring it back.

T, that stinks. All of it. I hope that the rash disappears and that the funeral is not too taxing. Most of all, I hope that your little girl is doing well.

Wow you have a lot on your plate right now, I hope he comes home soon and helps you out!

Hugs to you on the funeral, I can't go to funerals, I get so upset and I just can't handle them...

I hope your daughter feels better soon and that the nurses are nice to you!

Is your rash getting better?

I hope your daughter gets better soon.

I'm not a doctor, and don't even play one on TV, but to me it sounds like your rash could be what we always called "prickly heat" or heat rash. It itches and burns like crazy (sort of like poison ivy). I had it several times in the military. Simply a reaction to being hot and sweaty all the time.

The best thing I have ever found for it is to keep it cool and dry. Swimming in a chlorinated pool is great as it cools you down and drys the skiin. Rubbing alcohol also helps, but if you have scratched the alcohol will burn - on the other hand that felt good, like I was scratching.

Anyhow, hope your sense of humor is returned soon.

Be gone rash, be better sick Fric, be back soon, T's sense of humour, and be over soon, distressing funeral. I'm very sorry about the loss of your close family friend.

T, I think you are amazing. You are doing a fabulous job under difficult circumstances.

Sorry to hear all the bad news and I hope everything turns out fine for Fric. Don't worry about your blog friends, they'll all be here when you get back.
Take your time.

Sorry about everything... except aveeno, aveeno rocks.

I hope the weekend has found things a little better, the rash has subsided and your heart is okay.
