So things have been a little busy. . .I’m sure it is the same with you. I am dreaming of a week where I can come home from school, cook dinner, do laundry, grade papers, put the kids to bed, watch some PBS and go to sleep. This has not been happening without several other things lined up before it. This week is the same.
Kerrie’s daughter, Laura, is still the same. They finally got her fitted for a halo to hold her neck still during possible surgeries. They have started giving her larger doses of pain medication so they can remove her breathing tubes. They want her to breathe on her own–and she can–but to do that, she will have to take very deep breaths, and she has broken ribs. They are hoping by upping the pain meds, she will go ahead and breathe deeply on her own. They have not yet done any of the surgeries they need to do. Kerrie is still home in bed. The longer the days go by, the more bruising seems to show up. Ethan is going back to school tomorrow, but Kerrie said he is not doing well. I spoke to her earlier this evening, because we are taking food on Tuesday. She heard Ethan earlier today. He called his mother’s cell phone and left a message asking her to please come home. Right now, Ethan needs as many or more prayers as anyone else.
Tony’s big Gala is this Thursday. Victoria had a Build-A-Bear party to attend about a week ago, so I took advantage of my trip to the mall and went shopping. I am wearing a shirt and skirt that I already own–but I got some new (cheap) shoes
so I am good to go. I have a haircut scheduled for Wednesday, and if I can find even two seconds this week, I would dearly love to have a pedicure–even though you won’t see my toes.
While at the mall, I spent as much on this item as I did on the shoes alone or the jewelry alone
to keep this Smell of Christmas phenomena from happening again. I was looking for something in a red or a green, but this was THE scent–so gold it is. We will have appropriate seasonal smells, dadgummit.
I even threw caution to the wind and purchased one of these fancy schmancy gee-gaws to go atop it.
Bring on the holidays!!!!!
