difficult child was out sick Mon. No surprise. It was a Monday. He seems to have caught up ... but now has a bad stomach ache again. His stomach is hot, hot, hot to the touch. He ate cream puffs I'd purchased for a party. Idiot me. He's so stubborn, he won't take Pepto Bismol, won't take Metamucil, won't take psilliium, won't even drink a full glass of water to get the gas out of there. husband is coming home at noon to check on difficult child and take him to school late. difficult child heard me on the phone and is already yelling that he won't go. Arrgh. I have to go to work (I only work FT 3 wks out of the yr, putting up Christmas decorations at Macy's) so I have to disconnect the computer. He broke the deadbolt last wk. Other than THAT he's been pleasant. I think. Thanks for letting me vent.
