One of Those Days....

The day isn't over yet, but it's certainly been a long one already.

Lily didn't sleep through the night; she woke me up at about 2:45 this morning. She fussed for about 45 minutes before she went back to sleep. Sometime during those 45 minutes I acquired a case of the hiccups. Then I had trouble going back to sleep because of the pesky hiccups. My 6:15 alarm seemed to go off way too early. My hiccups didn't go away during the night. I was about 10 minutes late getting out the door this morning, and I had to stop to get gas on the way to school. I picked up a big hot cocoa at the gas station, and I managed to spill some of it on my shirt (my white shirt, nonetheless) during my commute. I pulled out some napkins and my bottle of water to try to blot out the spots, and then I promptly spilled the water all over my lap. The good news was the hiccups went away. However, they came back. They did go away again and I haven't spilled anything on myself in the last 3 hours, so I guess the day is getting better....

To get rid of those pesky hiccups, get a big gulp of water in your mouth, hold your ears and nose shut, and swallow it. Works for me.
I hope you can get the chocolate out of your white blouse. Presoaking with BIZ sometimes works. Or you could try the Efferdent like we used on your white T-shirt with blueberry fruit-pizza topping when you were litte. Do you remember that? Of course, it depends on what the fabric is!!!

Hi Gina! I have had days like those before. Lily is sleeping through the night consistently? Wow! I can only hope for that for Abigail.
