Murphy and I are NOT friends

I actually don't know anyone who is friends with good ole Murphy, but I did not hate him until this deployment and I didn't despise him until today. We have been lucky so far with this deployment. My only major issues while the husband has been gone was:

1. his stupid old truck's battery kept dying, but that was fixed with him buying his new truck on R&R. 2. The stupid woodpeckers deciding to try to make a nest on the side of my garage. (I'm seriously not kidding, our house looks quite ghetto with the tin foil I have to use to keep those pesky birds away) Do you see the two lovely holes they left? Literally one on each side. Thank goodness for tin foil.

3. Baby E getting sick, we still aren't sure what is making her wheeze, but thankfully she is a happy baby. We've had a few other illnesses since he's been gone, Little L has had a fever for a few days, he had a hydrocele fixed, and ear infections. Now today put me over the edge.
I woke up early because I had a dentist appointment at 0800 (really let's not talk about what I was thinking when I scheduled this appointment at this time), as I was deciding I needed to get out of bed I noticed that my right eye had a lot of yucky stuff in the corner of it and it kind of hurt. I just thought I was waking up with a lovely headache or some how got something in my eye. I finally stumbled into the bathroom and looked in the mirror. What I saw staring back at my wasn't a pretty picture, but what I noticed most was that my right eye was swollen. I called my mom and talked to her, she suggested I go to the urgent care and see what was wrong. I got there shortly after they opened and was seen quite quickly. The doctor confirmed what I hoped it wasn't......it was pink eye!!!! Really!?!??! I have NEVER in my life had pink eye before. Let me tell you, it sucks! Not only that but I have the two little ones at home, and my mom is leaving for a trip tomorrow and wasn't able to help me. Great timing huh? She offered to cancel her trip, but I told her not to, we would survive. I just have to be extremely careful not to pass this on to the kids.
I was really bummed too, I had quite a bit planned for this week to keep us busy. I had at least one outing the the gym every day (Little L loves playing there) and we also had a play date scheduled. I obviously cannot go to the gym or play date :( I was really looking forward to the play date and getting some extra exercise in. I have like 10-20 lbs to go before the husband gets home. (This is one of my deployment goals, to be back at the weight I was when I met him)
Here's to hoping that this leaves quickly and we can return to our normal routines. Thank goodness it's summer and I don't have to worry about going into work tomorrow. :)
