Elijah is suffering from two eye ulcers (if you've been around for awhile you will remember he had one a before). Painful, scary, but the medicine is working (drops every four hours!) so he's going to be okay. Obviously, he didn't learn his lesson the first time, but he may have learned it now. I can only hope. I'm being robbed blind by the eye appointments...$500 in the hole so far, but today I was taught how to recoup that and three times that for other stuff with minimal legal hassle on my part. Not that I want to or I would have many years ago, but when attacked one must defend themselves. I would rather not....it just isn't my nature.
Elijah also had his orthopedic appointment yesterday and Olivia had an eye appointment at the same time! Nick took Lucas and went home to do British Literature. Emily came with Elijah and myself, and Homer had to leave work and take Olivia in. It all went pretty smoothly. Olivia's eyes have improved. She's up to 20/110 in the left eye and is getting a new prescription. I gave specific instructions that my husband was NOT supposed to pick out the glasses. He did it anyhow. Olivia tells me they are "Tye-dye". Can't wait to see this! :)
I gave Emily a spelling test on her Nintendo DS while in the waiting room so we wouldn't have to use up our evening.
So far this week has been one heck of a bust. Everything is either doctor's appointments or legal paperwork. Both I could do without. Just wish we could go back to that time when we all got along and weren't letting strangers decide our personal lives. Actually, almost all of us do still get along. Who knows, maybe there will be a change of heart and we can work out this situation before anymore damage is done to anyone involved. I am very slowly learning you cannot change how people are towards you, but you can control how you react to them. I am just going to continue as I always have as I refuse to fill my heart with hate. Life is too short to live it pissed off!
Totally stoked about gardening and growing something to eat this summer. It's always been about the flowers, but I've done a complete turn-around. Both girls are really into with me as well so it's going to be a great summer. Now if I could just have a couple easy days so I can actually get into the grow room.
Olivia was throwing up for a couple hours last night. I missed it all as I feel asleep on the couch so dad was up with here. Like we haven't had enough....it never ends. She's home today and laying on the couch. No fever, just no energy. Hope we have an uneventful weekend.
