Art Creations Friday Entry...I Would Like a Do-Over for Last Week!...

"Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see." ~John Whitehead

Today is the first chance I have had to sit down and post since last Tuesday! Our Wednesday went like this:

7:30- drop off kids at Mother-in-law's house

8:00- Mammogram (great results)

9:30- pick up kids to go to dentist appointments

10:00/12:00- Dentist

12:00- Go through the drive-thru at McDonalds and throw some Happy Meals into the back seat.

12:10/1:00-Drive to Allergy doctor to get the boy's allergy tested.

1:00/3:00- Boys are given allergy tests and Let The Itching Commence! While waiting for the results, Dr. June examines David and while looking in his ears and discovers that he has a fairly good sized hole in his eardrum.

4:00- Dr. June consults with an ENT in the same building and he sees us right then.

4:30- Dr. Wyatt informs me that the hole in David's ear is from his tube falling out in January and that since it is not closed by now David will need a tympanoplasty because it is not going to close on it's own. Our FORMER ENT told me everything looked great and good to go.

5:00-David gets his hearing checked and I meet with the scheduling nurse to set up David's surgery. July 7th. No swimming, no swim lessons and his Rockin' Robots camp is the week after surgery and he can't go. Great!

6:00- Leave just in time to hit evening traffic.

Allergy Test Results-James is allergic to ANYTHING with fur. And that's it. I was hoping to find a dust trigger or mold trigger in there to explain his asthma. Nope. David is allergic to anything with fur and mold and several grasses. Who knew? Dr. June told me that she felt like James would not outgrow his asthma. So all in all it was a FANTASTIC day for all. Not.

And the rest of the week followed suit.

So forgive the lack of commenting and the missing next installment of the photo series. I will be around to see you all! And we will be learning about ambrotypes on Thursday:) Love, Jamie

When I have days like yours, I stand in front of the bathroom mirror at night, getting ready for bed, and realize I haven't brushed my hair the first time that day.
Love your quotes!

Oh my goodness! You poor thing. On days like that and weeks like that I just have to really look for the good things and tell myself it could be worse so be thankful for what I do have working in my favor. Like you! I have you working in my favor! Thank you for all of the kind comments you leave me. They mean even more knowing you left them in the middle of chaos and stress on your end!

This artwork is b-e-a-utiful, Jamie! Gorgeous!

As I read your note, the words to "Hang on Sloopy, Sloopy hand on" started resounding through my head! The art is truly beautiful, Jamie. ( It always is )

Oh the life of a MOM! But, one day these little chicks will fly the nest & then will be your time! Trust me! I speak from experience. :)

Ugh, what a day. I'm sorry about your son missing out on all that fun stuff and I hope there'll be other blessings, instead~
