I just need to growl and scream tonight, beat myself up a little bit. How stupid...I mean STOOOPID can I get?
Pretty stupid I guess. I let my daughter leave and go to a horse show in Washington this afternoon even though she had a toothache, even though she went to the dentist yesterday and had a filling. Well, I went out to the barn and fed the horses, did some other barn chores, came home by 9 to 'surf' Pips, then got the phone call just before 11 pm *daughter Sara was in Emergency room* abscessed (sp?) tooth...they say my kid looks like ET tonight she is on the way back home, courtesy of my friend Carol, who is willing to drive all night to bring Sara home because (1) she(Carol) is wonderful (2) she also has a 17 yr old daughter named Sarah (3) she has a sleep disorder and stays up all night anyway (4)she is CAROL...woman strong, friend, the one I put down on paper as THE OTHER MOM in case of an emergency, if I am unavailable. (5) my car won't make it back and forth, 210 miles oneway, and Carol was already there for the horse show anyway?
Talk about a super lady! Oh, and did I mention she is DYNOMITE? and a clinical psychologist?
but I feel so stooopid!!!!!to have let Sara go, though her upper lip was a bit swollen this morning ...she is a TOUGHIE, said she'd be fine
wellllll, now, as Carol says, Sara has learned a serious lesson about when/when not to be a tough cookie
and she told me not to feel guilty or stooopid
but I do anyway
thanks for letting me rant until I turned blue
~Oh...and because I am NOT Carol? I am going to catch 40+winks before 6AM, when I must go to the barn and feed 25 horses, make a 'mandatory' 10AM appt with a local assistance agency, and also get my sweetie back to the dentist for an emergency evaluation sometime between 8 and noon.
