I'm not sure what I did to deserve all the bad Karma, but I swear I'm doing my very best to reverse it! It's terrible. It's not just me either, it's like everyone who is even associated with me is getting totally screwed this week!
First there was all of the stuff that my friend from work has had to deal with.
Then Ciara went and smashed her face against the door frame (the bruise is looking mighty pretty right now, btw).
We had the one good night with Ciara making it through the night without an accident...but it's been completely mixed results since then.
Tuesday I was outside on the playground with the kids and when we came back into the classroom I noticed that my chin was feeling a bit odd. It didn't hurt and it wasn't really itchy...it was more like a tingly sensation. I touched my chin to see if I could feel anything and discovered a small, pimple like bump. In the 2 seconds it took me to look in the mirror, the bump had taken over my entire chin. I have no idea what bit/stung me, but whatever it was, I'm definitely allergic to it. I took some children's benadryl (the only option available at the time) and hoped that I wasn't going to need to take a trip to the ER (especially since there was no one around to cover the class I was in). My chin got all hard and red, my entire face felt sort of tight and strange, and I had a light-headed head achy feeling for about an hour. Then just as quickly as it started, most of the symptoms disappeared. The only thing that took a while to go away was a bizarre tingling sensation in my lips. I took some more benadryl that night when I got home, and by the next morning you couldn't even tell that anything had happened. BIZARRE!
Last night as I was just about to fall asleep I heard an all-mighty crash come from my daughters room, followed by the faint sounds of crying. When I got to her room she was lying on her bed crying hysterically (though quietly), but couldn't tell me what had happened. I think that she stood up while still half asleep and tried to straighten out her blanket, and then fell and bumped her head on the wall. I couldn't find any signs of injury and she fell back to sleep almost instantly once I got her to stop crying. I was a tad worried that she had given herself a concussion...but since she seemed to be ok, I ended up just going to bed.
I woke up this morning with a lovely Migraine. Ciara threw an hour long hissy fit because I told her she needed to wear shorts instead of a dress because she had her gymnastics class today. Took some excedrin and managed to get Ciara dressed and in the car.
Just before my boss was getting ready to head off to the airport to go visit her father and new baby brother (& basically leave me in charge for the next 2 1/2 days), she got a phone call that her Grandmother had passed away. Now she's still taking the next 2 1/2 days off, but will not be travelling and will instead spend the time mourning with her family.
I was left in charge of setting up our staff ice cream social today. I went to retrieve an ice cream scoop and in the process managed to have a glass baking dish fall from a substantial height directly onto my spine. There's no bruise, but it hurts like a MF...and seems to be getting worse as the day progresses.
I also had the pleasure of signing at least 3 accident reports today. 1 scraped knee (not so bad), 1 bite (ugh), and 1 case of a child getting sand thrown in his eyes by another child (crap!). Fortunately all of the parents seemed to deal ok...though I didn't get to see the parents of the child with the sand. I guess we'll see how that turns out tomorrow.
Oh, and then tonight I was talking to my sister on the phone and learned that a close relative is dealing with some seriously fucked up shit right now. I don't feel comfortable getting specific, but it is truly awful.
Seriously- what the hell?!
