:::sigh::: So much I can’t report. Let’s suffice it to say things have been interesting around here lately – all is good, but interesting. Heck, even thought-provoking at times. I have not been avoiding the blog so much as trying to figure out what the heck to do with it lately.
I love the new addition to our neighborhood. The “addition” would be the newly adopted brother to Andy’s best friend. I’m just going to call him LG (for little guy) for now. I’m five years removed from 5-year-olds and I had completely forgotten how funny, funny, funny they can be. LG absolutely *hearts* the older boys, especially Tim. About a week ago, he was playing here and got a cut on the bottom of his foot. I cleaned it up, stuck a bandaid on it and, since he didn’t have shoes on (Florida and all) I stuck a sock on it so he could walk home without the bandaid falling off of his foot. Joking, I told LG that he should take the sock off as soon as he got home or he’d have stinky feet like Tim. Guess who’s been wearing that same sock every single night? His poor mom . . .
We’ve discovered an antibiotic Andy cannot tolerate. It cleared up the strep, but tore up his stomach something awful. Poor kid. When I finally figured it out, I called the doctor and she switched him to something new. Wish I had figured it out sooner. I think today was the first day he’s felt fully human in over a week.
Poor Scout (12) is navigating life through the green cone of shame. She’s old and crazy and we’re doing our best to keep her and her tail as one. She’s making me insane with the cone, but it appears to be working. Cross your fingers.
The rest? There’s a lot of funny stuff going on here, but I can’t figure out how to share it without potentially embarrassing people. I don’t want to do that and I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings either. I really need to figure out how to re-channel my blogging. Until I figure that out … I seem to be stuck. I’m going to go back to sitting on my hands for now.
