Like I ever had any to begin with!
I am generally not an emotional eater but I must have become one because I swear I have gained back all 20 lbs. in the last 6 months. The scale doesn’t show it but I can feel it!! Probably because there was food everywhere. When people are sick or dying other people bring food. I don’t eat well, I am not a 3-meal-a-day person. I am rarely hungry during the day so it’s uncommon for me to eat 3 meals a day. Apparently when people are sick or dying you HAVE to eat those 3 meals. I am trying to get back on track because it is irritating me.
My baby has hit the terrible 2’s early. I’m sure since she was SUCH a good baby I am paying for it now. I also happen to know the terrible 2’s are better than the 3’s and 4’s so I am totally screwed!!!
She is also WAY in to cleaning everything. She loves to use paper towels and tissues to clean the floors, walls, windows, dogs, etc… TOO cute!! Too bad she won’t find it fun when she is old enough for chores!!
If you have diaper rash tips I can use them. Elizabeth has the worst diaper rash I’ve ever seen. They decided she was lactose intolerant and lactose = diarrhea = blisters on the butt. I am talking gaping blisters that nothing heals. We’ve tried everything from Aveeno to prescriptions. No one has any ideas so our next step is a wound specialst or a dermatologist or both. She also turns blue if it’s under 75 degrees. A trip to the ER and a full work up later and it’s just her complexion. Who knew?
Joey is home sick today. I am not happy about this. He has missed a TON of school this year with the illnesses and deaths in our family. Because of that I had to leave him here when I went to Colorado. It was just as well and I would have done it anyway, but two weeks without them stunk and I missed is birthday. We’d already celebrated it, but I missed the actual day which really bothered me, luckily my SIL, broher, and Joe made a day of it. My brother and SIL sent him baloons at school and they took him to his favorite restaraunt for dinner. He’s having a belated sleepover this weekend so his birthday gets to drag out almost a month. He’s not bummed about it!
He’s laying on the couch watching “Zoom” sniffling. So far it’s not in his lungs and I am praying it stays that way.
A while back I wrote a post about problems we were having with his choice of friends. Partcularly a neighbor boy. Turns out we were right and I should have stepped in. Who knew? That’s another post, maybe tomorrow. But a black eye later and he’s officially not allowed to be anywhere near him.
We have a “new” dog. I haven’t started calling her “my dog” yet. It’s bittersweet. She’s my grandpa’s dog. The kids LOVE her and she’s very sweet. I’ll put up pictures and give her an introduction post later.
I have chinchilla babies everywhere. I am officially out of room. Anyone want one?? 🙂
