I'm losing my mind!

Stop laughing Dad! I cannot find my camera. ANYWHERE. I just had it this evening. I'm positive that I put it on the couch after I took an adorable picture of Anna sitting in her rocking chair looking at the Christmas tree. And now, it's gone. Which really chaps my hide b/c I missed taking a bunch more pictures of her & I putting up the rest of the decorations and her playing with her little nativity set Binga painted years ago. DUDE! Where in the world is it?!? So if I ever find it, I'll take more pictures of her and the decorations (she loves them all by the way) etc. etc. and download them and share them! Grrrr. I can't believe I can't find it.
On another note, we still don't seem to be completely on the mend. Neither one has slept much the last 2 nights. Jacob is finally starting to eat a little more, but not back to normal there yet. Anna's neck still hurts. I finally got her to put a little rice bag thing on it tonight (it's a bag made of fleece with raw rice in it--you heat it up in the microwave and it's like a little heating pad w/out the cord). For days now we've been trying to convince her to put a little something warm on it to help (her lymph nodes are so swollen behind one ear from her ear infections that it hurts to turn her head to one side). She kept refusing and screaming like we were cutting an arm off when we tried. Here's how the argument went tonight...
Me: Anna, just put the rice bag on it and it will help it feel better! Then it won't hurt anymore.

Anna: No. I don't want it. I want to hurt.

Me: Fine! Then I'm not getting up to comfort you tonight when you start screaming that your neck hurts!!!

But then tonight as she's laying in bed, she says "If I put the rice bag on my neck, it will make it feel better. I'll put the rice bag on my neck." Well alrighty then! I just hope it gets better soon. Another week of antibiotics...I hope to start seeing a major turn-around very soon!!! I also better find my camera soon. Good grief. Whose daughter am I???? :D

Oh no!! I hope you find the camera! that's awful!

My mother-in-law made me some of those heating bags a few years ago. They sure come in handy though we have to warm them in the oven because we don't have a microwave.
