Good things to know:
When your four year old tells you that he wants to give you a haircut, don't think he has forgotten the idea just because you told him no and thirty minutes have passed. And when he comes up behind you touching your hair AFTER making a comment like that, be sure to check his hands for the scissors.
I've been out of commission for the last couple days, which always throws me off. Sunday and Monday I had a bad headache due to an ear infection that I keep taking meds for and just does not go completely away. I started drops and a stronger antibiotic last night, so it's feeling a LOT better now. And today my mom had surgery for a rectal prolapse - yes, it is as nasty as it sounds. When she had the flu two months ago, she coughed so much that it caused this prolapse to happen. So it got fixed today. We had to be at the hospital at SIX in the morning! Yuck. But everything is fine now and I left an hour ago while she was still sleeping (my dad was there). I am quite grateful for my wonderful husband - he took the day off so I could spend the day with my mom and dad. That was quite a relief!
