It finally arrived and now we have 2 snow days! Hopefully not 3--there is a limit to how much family togetherness we can take without verbally, emotionally, or physically harming one another!
Don't get me wrong, I love my girls. I love my husband. I love my mother. I love my mother and father in-law. No, we're not like Charlie Bucket's family in which both sets of grandparents lived with them (and shared a huge bed!). Our parents live far from us. This weekend both sets came to visit. It's been great, yesterday we played Hand and Foot for at least 6 hours (enjoyed until the last 2 rounds). We've watched a movie or two, cooked many meals together, and overall had a great time. But it's been longer than 3 days, today makes day 5. It's smelling a bit fishy around here!
Thankfully this afternoon I have to get out of the house--I'm getting an MRI. It's probably nothing but my doctor wants to be sure. See, I have a "unicorn bump." For the past 7 years, or so, I've entertained the kids' friends by telling them I'm part unicorn and the proof was when they felt my forehead--there's a rigid notch like the nub of a unicorn horn that's just beginning to sprout. It's hard, like bone, otherwise I probably would have gone to the doctor earlier and asked about it. It never hurt nor caused any disturbances. But a few weeks ago as we ate dinner, Valerie said, "Mom, I can SEE your unicorn horn!" She was right, it's grown. Before you couldn't see it, only feel it. Now that it's visible and potentially embarrassing I went to the doc. After a few laughs about my unicorn bump she suggested an MRI.
Ever since I noticed it had grown I've been having headaches--I'm fairly certain it's psychosomatic. Perhaps I really am part unicorn. One never truly knows. Hopefully, the MRI will tell us something so I can quit with the psychotic headaches!
We haven't heard from my in-laws today, FiL was ready to hit the road last night but MiL was prepared to stay until the roads are safe. I think I'd like to have one more round of Hand and Foot so I could hopefully redeem myself from yesterday's game. Hopefully, tomorrow everyone will be back to school, work, and driving home safely.
