Help a sister out… June 6, 2013

Summer is upon us and so there is a season (10 weeks to be precise)…in which we don’t have to routinely wake children up at the crack of dawn, I have so much time in the morning I am frequently “almost late” to work and the pace overall is just more relaxed.  I love it.

This summer has begun with our 11 year-old beginning her orthodontic treatment…beginning with the Herbst appliance.

imgresLet’s just say, yesterday was a little miserable for her.  I made more smoothies and shakes in a day than I normally do all month.  She’s a trooper though, and we are quite stocked up on Tylenol!

Next week, our almost-10 year old will have her tonsils out.  (If you have any pointers here, comment away, I’m alllllll ears).  She’s had strep a ridic amount of times and we are ALL looking forward to getting these out.  Not so much on the 2 week recovery period!  WHAT?!?!??!?

Which brings me to this:  next week, post-op, I’ll be home with the girl and have some free time on my hands.  Hoping my camera will be back so I can play with some tutorials, or maybe re-design my blog or maybe read a book….wide open.  What are YOUR suggestions…do tell….and NOW…..I must get my rear in gear or I’ll be later for work!!!!

  1. Old movies! Sound of Music, Gone with the WInd, Pride and Prejudice

  2. A spiffed up new look for the blog is a great way to spend a little time. When I re-did mine I felt like I had painted and rearranged an entire room! Thinking of redoing again myself!

    Oh no! Hopefully healing goes quickly. I almost had my tonsils out for the same reason. One year, I had strep 6 times. No fun at all 😦

    I’d spend some time with a great book, some coffee, and my camera if I got the chance. That’s what I vote for!
