Callie spends countless hours staring at appliances to make sure they are really unplugged. She wastes obscene amounts of time checking for murderers in various corners of her house and entire sleepless nights performing pointless checking rituals. Then every spare minute is filled with inspecting doorknobs, chairs, floors, etc. for minuscule traces of germs. Oh, and she does all of this as she counts to three over and over again in her head. She does this every day. Without fail. Dr. Blake just doesn't fit into her schedule. Until he does. Until Callie begins to trust him. Until she starts to need him. And want him. And . . .

Guest Post...

I would like to take a moment to reflect upon the power of the following: Zoloft, various cleaning products, and a mother’s love for a child.

Last night, my son threw up everywhere – on me, all over the couch, all over a blanket, on the hallway/living room carpet, on a bathroom mat, etc. The items listed above are what carried me through this.
To be more specific, here is what got me through this predicament:
½ of a bottle of carpet/fabric cleaner
¾ of a can of Lysol wipes
1 ½ bottles of Febreze
1 bottle of carpet refresher
1 package of baby wipes
2 showers for me
2 showers for my son
Several cups of laundry detergent
Lots of shower gel/bath soap
1 regular daily dose of Zoloft
Most importantly, 1 happy, healthy smile on my son’s face this morning as he told me that he was feeling better
Now, there have been some casualties.
1.) The white blanket I normally have on the couch – it was my favorite … but it had to go.
2.) Two bath poufs
The fate of a bath mat, a stuffed animal, and a few pairs of clothes has not yet been determined.
