yes I know it’s Thursday!
Someone tell Laurie to get off my back!! (LOL) Yes I know I haven’t posted since Monday and I DO realize it’s Thursday night. What can I say? Sometimes the week runs away from me. I spent MOST of Tuesday at the pediatric opthamoligist for Francesca. Good Doc, but the wait was awful!!! Okay, so our appointment was at 2:15, so we get there at 2:00 and the wait began. About 40 minutes later we saw one doc, she did a preliminary exam and gave her drops to dialate her and then we had to wait for ANOTHER 30 minutes for the to dialate. Doc #1 called us back in and did another 2-second check and told us that Dr. Dankner (the specialist) would see us next… We weren’t called in by him until 4:30. Yup that’s right, you can do that math. Needless to say I wasn’t thrilled and he knew it. Well, she has a blocked duct (thanks for that info) and he prescribed drops (again) and we are scheduling a probe for a month from now. Yeah! She pulled through the LONG ordeal like a trooper. We headed home and I scrambled to get dinner made since I was bringing it to a friend that recently had a baby. My whole schedule was OFF. Thank you Doctor. Oh no, don’t worry, your time is much more valuable than mine.
Not much of anything went on Wednesday. Lots of phone tag. Lots of hemming and hawing over things (will update more about that later). I made a big pot of gravy and meatballs. Yum! It’s been a while since I’d done that. I went out to get Cesca’s drops and picked up a couple of Breves from the Pour House for Vince and I, double yum. We watched the American Idol finale. VERY happy to see Taylor win. Go Soul Patrol! We love that he doesn’t fit the typical American Idol mold. Gotta love the gray hair! I would definitly buy his album. I really liked the song he’ll be releasing soon "do I Make You Proud". VERY good lyrics.
Now were at Thursday. Garden work today. I finished putting in some more seeds but stopped short of finisheing the corn since I ran out, oops. Pulled some weeds from the front flower boxes. Still some more to do there, maybe I’ll finish tomorrow. Cleaned out the van. You can’t even begin to imagine all the junk that quickly accumulates in there! We headed out to Sears for a car-top carrier, with three little ones we’ve outgrown the trunk space of the mini-van. SAD. VERY. SAD. Evan suggested Chik-fil-A for dinner and we went with it. After they finished their dinners we let then run ragged in the play area. Francesca even made her first trip through the plastic jungle! And she made a little friend. Very cute.
So, there you have it. Not much going on. Lots of cleaning tomorrow to get ready for the weekend. It’s the final night of youth group, we’re sad and excited. Will update more later (I promise Laurie)
