What happened to that new leaf thing I promised you?
Well, I have a good excuse, a really good excuse, actually.
I spent most of last week in the hospital.
Apparently my body doesn't like me very much. Or I should say parts of my body, namely my anti-bodies and nerve endings don't like the rest of my body.
So I didn't put the boo on the bus last week. The ever-amazing O & A took over all parenting duties as I got poked & prodded, injected & had blood draws, laid on tables & inside big thumping machines. And spent a lot of time just sleeping in a hospital bed. I watched more TV last week then I have probably watched in the past 3 months. And daytime TV really sucks. Now I know why I don't watch!
So anyway, enough about all that. I am home, I am recovering. I am a big fan of pain patches. I now have 3 new doctors; a new surgeon, a new rheumatologist & a new pain specialist. I will go spend quality time with all of them this week. Oh and I need to go have a sleep study done because they are pretty sure I have sleep apnea too. fun.
I did not manage to get a good boo waiting for the bus photo today. Which was a shame because he is quite cute today in his rolled up clam digger pants. I did snap a pic while he was sitting in the bus. Yes, that is peanut butter smudged on his face. All 7 year old boys are allowed to be covered in peanut butter -- it's a rule.
Here is the boo's van, pulling away. His afternoon van is a more traditional yellow special needs van. This one is his morning van. He gets both vans all to himself. Joys of living in the middle of nowhere -- private chauffeur service to school.
Wanted to share a pic of the beautiful flowers my pseudo-daughter, Randi, brought me while I was in the hospital. There were more flowers, but Lunos & the boo enjoy dissecting flowers. Lot's of "she loves me, she loves me not" going on at my house, apparently. Oh, and the cat is not allowed on the table. Not that it matters at all to him, but for the record, this is a forbidden activity.
Remember those lovely Waverly printed dish towels I shared with you the other day? Turns out they are kinda on the tiny side. Too small to hang traditionally. So I hung three of the 4 on my kitchen cabinets. I'm not sure if I like them or not.
Here is a shot from more of a distance. Ignoring the stuff on the counter, what do you think? Oh, and you will notice the cat in the window. Where he is also not allowed to be. Because it involves climbing on the table to get there. As you can see, Lunos completely respects my authority.
