Okay, the economy is tanking. Partisan politics is out of control. Gas prices are high.
And Evie has a double ear infection. After another terrible night, I took her to the doctor this morning. We left with a prescription that took them 45 minutes to fill at Walgreens. (I heard one of the pharmacy techs ask "What is that child's name? Let's get her filled, since she's crying.)
Then Evie had the tantrum to end all tantrums. I won't go into details, but suffice to say, I put her to bed without lunch. This has not been my best day as a mother.
So I need a little cheering up.
We all probably need a little cheering up. But I think this is a bit much... As I was driving to the pediatrician's office, I turned on a local radio station. 101.1 WMVN is playing 'round the clock Christmas music.
Have they looked at a calendar? It's only October. We haven't even made it through Halloween or Thanksgiving yet. Call me Scrooge, but it's not Christmas cheer I'm looking for.
