The more things change...

the more they stay the same.

Different cats and different Barbie rvs and about 30 years apart.

The first photo is my cat Socks that we got when I was six and mine and my sister's Barbie camper. He loved to get in it.

The second photo is our present cat Smokey and my ODDs Barbie hot tub party bus that she got for her birthday from my sister this year.

Crazy time...

at my house right now.

DH just left for a trip for over a week. He came home and told me last night. But he did warn me Monday night that it might happen that way.

We have pictures (school and dance) this week and next week. Do I have that much money? No! I'll probably buy school and take my own dance.

Dentist apts and dr apts abound. Then ODDs surgery is next. Hopefully things will calm down for her and us to recover after that.

I will probably miss YDD's music program at school. It's the day after ODD's surgery. I don't know if I could leave her so quick to let someone else watch her.

On the road...

We are on the road to recovery. I got strep for the first time ever last week while DH was on a trip. It never fails. If it didn't keep happening over and over it would be funny. One of us always gets sick when he's gone especially this time of year. No kidding!

Strep kicked my butt. I wanted to rip my throat and ear out. It would have felt better. I opted for the antibiotic shot instead of pills for 10 days. My butt still hurts and the bruise isn't gone yet. I know, TMI.

Then Sunday ODD gets up with a sore throat. Strep confirmed Monday at regular peds office after Urgent Care botched the test and told us it was sinuses. We exposed 1/2 the city through church and a birthday party. We are meeting with the ENT Monday to talk about removing her tonsils. I really want to do what is best for her but I'm not sure what that is.

I had YDD checked out at the same time. She's the one with sinus issues. At least if she gets strep she's covered with an antibiotic.

ODD turns 6 on Thursday. I can't believe it. Her party is Saturday so hopefully she'll be back to 100% then.
