I'm Sorry card

Should I send a fruit basket or at least a card saying-Sorry!
This is the photo I got of the face at the bus stop. Looks like it is going to be a rough day for some teacher unless her boyfriend on the bus can snap her out of it.
It has been a VERY LONG WEEK!!!
Everyone in the house is sick-general cold type stuff but I am on the 6th day and I just feel wiped out. It feels like I am walking into the wind. I actually spent $28 at Walmart just replenishing the Advil/Tylenol/Cough/Vicks that we have used up.
To add to this-Ava broke out in her regular rash. We have been treating it with Benedryl which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. We have thought of everything under the sun and it is not related to food or soap. Disregard the blue candy lips but the pink cheeks look worse in real life and it covers her whole body.
Saturday she is in full flare-up so I call the Doctor and we are off so they can see her in all her rashy glory. I am there for an hour until I see a Doctor and it takes all of 3 minutes for him to give me the name and print out a paper describing it. Awesome! She has Erythema Multiforme Minor. Apparently it is her bodies reaction to an infection she got at one point. She was put on Prednisone for 3 days and Benedryl to help with the itch. Not a great weekend for her. It could continue for 2-6 weeks. Good news is we have been seeing it on and off for at least a month so the medication will hopefully take care of the cycle and she will be done.
Halloween was a low key day. We hung out at home until it was time to travel around to some family houses and end up at Grammie's. I was happy to hook up with Jessica and Krissie and we did the dozen or so houses in the neighborhood. Cold and tired we were all snuggled in my bed before 9pm.
Mr. Fooseberry is battling some stomach issues himself and seeing a surgeon today. No work and a lot of moaning has made my life a bit on the stressful side to say the least. If I only knew how different things could be in such a short amount of time - it is amazing. Of course while I am worrying about bills, Christmas and life in general he informs me I can have them on Thanksgiving because he is going to be doing his regular tradition of going to Foxwoods for the night. I can have them?? Like when don't I have them *ucker? Well through it all he has never missed out on his "traditions" - Foxwoods for his birthday, Nascar racing and now this. Selfish much?? Even unemployed and unable to pay his child support he and his girlfriend can continue their plans. I hope he sleeps well at night. I know I do while I am holding 2 warm little babies in my bed.
I working on my plan for Christmas and will be traveling to Taunton (hopefully) for a great deal on this awesome gift. I can't wait. I am working every dollar I can this year.The kids have been looking through all the Toy Books that come in the weekend news papers so I have more ideas than I need. The funniest I have heard is how we don't need to worry about money as they will just ask Santa for everything because his elves make all his stuff. Don't Worry, Mom! Now that is my 7 year old. I can't believe we are going to pull off another Santa year with her.
Well this post turned from a funny ha-ha to a morbid sucky life post and back to funny now didn't it? Just another wave to ride up and down in this sea of life. I am feeling myself coming back up to fighting strength again so all will be well. I have to believe this.
