Things That Suck

1. Starting an incredible post about your kid's IEP and leaving it on the computer at home, many thousands of miles away.

2. Theoretically being able to access it via the connection you carefully set up before leaving home, except that the connection is so freakishly slow that it's mind-numbingly annoying to do.

3. Therefore being stuck using your husband's laptop, which defaults to everything showing up in Hebrew.

4. Spending an enormous amount of time trying to reconfigure stuff to show up in English, and being mostly successful, except for all Google-powered sites. Like Google Apps. And Google search. And Blogger.

5. Being awakened last Sunday morning by Z,'s cheerful morning greeting: D. is on the roof. Finding out that this is completely true, and then not being able to go back to sleep afterwards.

6. Spending Sunday night being awakened by D. throwing up every two hours.

7. On Monday, after spending the last full day in America with D., going to pick up J. and finding out that he AND S. just threw up at school.

8. Getting on the plane on Tuesday with four children, two of whom continue to throw up all the way to Frankfurt.

9. In Frankfurt, having the security lady comment, Dude, this lady has four kids and she's pregnant AGAIN. Understanding her meaning perfectly despite not speaking German.

10. Flying coach.

Thank you. I feel better now.

Oy. I hope all the kids are feeling better now. Hope you are feeling better, too! I know you can't have a drink while you're pregnant, but there's nothing to stop you from drowning your sorrows in, say, chocolate ice cream with hot fudge sauce, right?

I'm stuck on On the Roof.
But at least you're in Israel. I'm very, very jealous.

I wish I could think of something witty to cheer you up...but really, that all really does suck.
