Wow. A week and a half can really get away from a girl!
So, what have I been doing, where have I been? Beats the heck out of me. We finally had some great weather here, so the garden was the main free-time activity for me. It took up quite a bit of house-cleaning and and dinner-making time too. Sorry about that Family, but I swear it will be worth it in a month or so!
So my Mom and I have hit the majority of the great garden centers in the area, and even discovered a few new ones. “I think you can find room to squeeze in one more plant.” Maybe it is not the best that I garden shop with Mom, she is such an enabler! Who am I kidding, I wouldn’t miss those great times with her for anything!
Our fabulous little daughter had her dance recital this past weekend. She danced to “The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything,” and I am positive she was the cutest pirate ever.
I was backstage for both shows helping the girls which was both fun and a challenge. Eleven girls, 22 tap shoes, and two and a half hours of down time takes a lot out of a mom. This is especially true after a six-hour first grade field trip. Don’t get me wrong, it was a great day with my daughter. It was just everybody else’s kids that tested my patience! (Not your girl though, friend!)
It was a very busy 10 days, and there was only one downer the whole time. Our little girl got a pump site infection in her arm, which the urgent care doc claims is Staph. Is it? I don’t know. It wasn’t actually cultured, but from what I researched, it sure seems to be Staph. Nevertheless she is on a pretty serious antibiotic so it should knock it out. If you find pus as fascinating as I do however, this was a bit like hitting the ooze lottery. Seriously, I could watch that all day.
Thanks for checking out the blog today. I promise to write more regularly going forward.
