Lacey came home for Christmas break sick with overgrown allergies! Let me back up Lacey came home for Thanksgiving really sick with overgrown allergies. We took her to urgent care the day before Thanksgiving. They gave her prescriptions and sent her on her way. A lot of good that did! In the meantime my allergies went crazy. We go from sneeze to dying animal in 60 seconds. We were coughing so much we were (still are) blacking out.
We eventually gave up the fight and headed to the doctor. The nurse put us in the same room since we are family and have the same symptoms. According to Zane that was a mistake. He said that when we first went in the room...little did he know.
Lacey laughs at everything. When she laughs, I laugh. I'm not sure what triggered the laughter inside our little room, but it was funny! At least Lacey and I thought it was! Zane on the other hand .didn't find us very funny! He was a whole lot irritated and trying to leave the room because he was annoyed and embarrassed. The only thing... the more irritated he became the funnier we thought it was and the more we laughed. We were crying! In his final huff of exasperation, he looked at me, pointed at the doubled over laughing/crying/hacking Lacey and said, "This is all your fault, you know!?" This only caused more laughter and Zane retreated to the corner knowing there was no way he could win!
Yes! It is my fault, but I'm not sorry! I love that Lacey has a sense of humor...even the times when she shouldn't laugh! I'm happy that I I taught her to laugh at herself and that life can be fun and not everything has to be so serious! I can even laugh, at least giggle, when she is laughing at me! I'll take full blame for teaching her to laugh! I mean who wouldn't laugh when you have something like this around? (see picture)
Now that Lacey is off at college, I find myself with way too much time to think. For me, thinking leads to worrying and worrying leads to worst case scenario. So I thought maybe blogging and putting some of my thoughts down might help myself. You never know, at some point I might come up with a clever thought or idea in the process!
