Where the heck has the time gone??
Well, let me fill you in. First, I have been seriously going through creative withdrawal! I had all of these idea for Christmas gifts, ornaments, etc.... Whoooooooooosh- right out the window they went. Nothing accomplished. Nada.
The reality is, I won't do much until we buy a house. It's just I need quiet time and the ability to spread out to get anything done. So, I'll keep reading my Somerset Studio and drool.
The kids are adjusting. Jason may have ADD. He tends to wander around in class during free time. He does just fine one on one and in small groups, though. I'm not sure what to do to help him. I'm just glad he's in a small charter school.
Adam is doing well, except suffice it to say we're having bathroom issues... like holding issues. KWIM?? Add that to a fever and cold = one ugly picture. Miralax daily anyone??
Everyone in the household is sick, which landed my Mom is the hospital until about 10 minutes ago. COPD is unforgiving. So, if you smoke, try to quit. And keep trying. Over and Over. Because Miss COPD will bite you in the proverbial @ss one day.
Best of all- the boys have lice. Seriously. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. We have never had this issue, and I wouldn't have even had known to look except that last week, when I picked up son #2 with a fever from school, I heard the school nurse talking to a parent on the phone about it. I looked online for images and info, then when looking in the boys' hair. Yup. Lice. Oh- and that was Sunday. Monday I spent the day in the ER with Mom (see above), waited until she was admitted, then had a job interview at 1 p.m. at the same place. In my barn clothes. With no makeup on. SIGHHHHHHHHHHHH.
So, two shaved heads and two doses of Nix, we still have live ones every day. I had to go out and buy a magnifying lamp so I can see the damned things. And then I nit-pick- literally.
The good news is, while I may be going blind trying to see lice, I will have a cool lamp to use when I make something crafty. Someday. Maybe.
