This is my first go at RTT (that's what the cool kids call it) and today I'm feeling especially ADD so this should work out. Let's see... (and go visit the unmom for all of the RTT details)
~First off, today is the first day of school for Mae and Binny. Mae will start 1st grade and Binny will start 5K. Let me say that again. I have a first grader! I know, shocking!
~Yesterday we met my brother in the back of a Target parking lot so he could take my Grandpa to a radio station that plays only Polka music. They have a retail store where they sell loads of Polka CDs and cassettes to guys like my Grandpa. He came home with 2 CDs and 4 cassettes that were in the bargain bin. Needless to say, Grandpa loved it! The rest of us went shopping for new school shoes which also led to a few new school clothes as well. Damn Gymboree and their way too cute dresses.
~After we picked up Grandpa, I was exhausted and just wanted to go home. 3 stops later including ice cream for lunch was it for me. Nothing like kids on a sugar high that makes me look forward to the first day of school.
~Last week I took some really cute photos (if I do say so myself) for the Gardener's cousin and I'm so happy with how they turned out. I hope she likes them.Antique look:
~My house still smells like pickles.
~Tomorrow is Mae's appointment with the Immunologist down at Children's hospital. I'm excited to finally talk with the doctor about all of Mae's health issues but at the same time I'm a little nervous about the kinds of test he may order and possible diagnosis, if any. My boss read some article about kids with immune disorders and freaked me out a little with talk of bone marrow blood tests and lymph node biopsies. She's helpful like that.
I think that's about it. Have a great Tuesday everyone!
