It's sick season

there are nights where you just want to sit on the floor and cry. well tonight was definitely one of those nights. zander has had a cold for four weeks now and it went into a secondary infection. so i took him in to the doctor tonight at 5 pm cause that was the only available appointment. yeah for cold and flu season. after the appointment and the confirmation of a sinus infection, we headed to the pharmacy for the perscription. after waiting 1/2 hour (with the two boys cause ben was in class till 9:30 pm) the pharmacy finally says that it still hasn't been called in yet. so i waited another fifteen more minutes and then decided to head home. none of us had eaten (except ronan who had a bottle earlier thank goodness) and zander and i both were getting crazy. so i headed to the car only to see my keys on the front seat. SERIOUSLY?! and of course it's the car with no back up set. so back inside i went and called my dad bawling. he said, call AAA. duh....forgot i had that service! so i called them and they said the tow guy would be there anywhere from 5-45 minutes. so i cried even harder. i wanted to go home! finally my dad called back and said he was on his way to meet us. praise God the tow guy got there in ten minutes, got me into my car and i was off. ALL THE WHILE ZANDER"S PERSCRIPTION HAD STILL NOT BEEN CALLED IN! i got home, got ronan fed and to bed, got zander fed, and then my blessed parents brought me food over. and then the best sight of all was my husband walking through the door early. everything's always ok when ben's home.
so i called the ped's office, was put on hold for 15 minutes, and finally got the perscription called in. ben then took the insurance card and left for the pharmacy. 1/2 way there i realized i gave him ronan's card not zanders. sooo....he had to come back and get the right card and then go back. poor man.
our lives are out of a movie i swear.
