Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hal-le-lu-jah! Tanya showed up, on time, with a smile on her cheery little face and went in and woke up H in sweet way and started singing A Spoon Full of Sugar like Mary Freakin Poppins took care of business. Lisa and her grandmother showed up to pick me up after I showed her about the breakfast regime. (First course, oatmeal with a dose of Miralax and cut up prunes. After this has been consumed and she’s been burped the egg gets scrambled and cooked while the breakfast sausage and roll or toast, whatever she has indicated she wants, gets warmed/toasted. Put on plate with salt and pepper and jelly on bread. She likes salad forks, not dinner forks. What’s that? Oh, because she’s weird, that’s why.)
We went to Hobby Lobby, Garden Ridge Pottery and out to eat at Cheddars. No, it’s not a cheesy place. I don’t know why it has such a horrible name. Really good food. We had a wonderful time.
Kes came home from school in time for me to stay out as long as I wanted with Lisa and Mimi. We had loads of fun.
I came home and now H is fed and in bed and I am waiting for my hubby to come home as it is our 20th anniversary! I got him a new cell phone for his gift as he desperately needed one and I think I got some perfume and I’m not sure what else… I will see and report back.
On the bleak side of things, I have a rather disturbing picture I am going to shock and appall entertain you with.
The following is an image of my dear mither’s foot about a week after her foot surgery.
Yes, what you are seeing is a pin with a large white ball head on it, sticking out the end of her second toe. Strangely, what bothers her most, (besides the pain from the surgery), is the blood around her toenails that she can’t clean off well due to the fact that she’s not supposed to get it wet.
The Pin started out pushed all the way in. It has slowly worked it’s way out and is not supposed to do that. She hadn’t walked on it at all and yet, it was wriggling out slowly. She went back to the doc today and he said something like,
And then he strapped some tape and gauze around the whole thing and duct taped it to the back of her ankle said he thinks it’ll be fine.
Doesn’t LOOK fine. Looks gross.
At least child number two and her friend are going to go and see Mither and Pop for spring break. They will be a really big help, I know.
I wish I could go.
