I actually had to venture out of my house today, in the freezing cold! I kept checking my email hoping that my daughters' dance class would get canceled. It wasn't. I was correct in thinking that it was so cold it feels like you are walking around naked, no matter how many layers you have on. That wind is unbearable! I don't know how I can complain though, after living in Alaska. Alaska is by far much colder. You acclimate in Alaska though. It can be so much colder, and you are comfortable walking around outside with your coat unzipped, no hats or mittens. Here, we get a cold front and I am ready to stock up on food and just peer out the window for as long as my life will allow. I made it home in one piece though. I am back in comfortable pajamas, beneath a warm blanket, pattering at the keyboard.
I had to give my oldest daughter's GI doctor a call today. During our last visit, we were instructed to up a dose of one of her major medications from 4-1/2 pills to 5 pills. I am somewhat pleased with this, as it is a lot easier on me. I no longer have to fumble with an itty bitty circular pill, trying to snap it in half. But last night I realized the bottle only had 3 pills left. I was quite irritated and perplexed at how this happened, immediately wondering what I had done wrong. Then I realized the bottle says I was only given 18 pills. 18 pills does not allow for me to give her 5 pills for every dose, no matter how much you want it to! Thankfully, it should all be worked out before her next dose is needed. I am just thankful I realized all of this before I needed to give her the next dose! Then I would have been panicking.
I am starting to feel a little better. Well, probably a lot better than I did those first couple of days. But it is still lingering. Mostly just tired and soreness, and a minor stuffy nose. I do hate being sick though because my OCD is really enhanced, trying to keep the germs from spreading in the house. I am always more worried about getting my oldest sick than I am about myself being sick. It was nice to just stay in all this past weekend and relax.
I know I am just rambling on in this post, but I am trying to force myself to write down a few things to keep myself journaling. Really not much has gone on in my world since I have just been trying to relax and feel better. There has been a lot of Play-doh fun, Perler bead creating, and even sewing (not me of course) going on in our house. Now the week has restarted itself once again and we are thrown back into the routine of school work!
