What Was That?

I don't really remember what I wrote about yesterday and I'm not going back to read about it because I will probably be embarrassed! I know I wrote about Jaden being allergic to the animals and I know that I wrote about "being different". Hmmmm scary.

I was quite out of it yesterday. I went to fill Jaden's prescriptions and had to have the woman explain something to me 3 times...and it was something simple. My brain was not firing. I'm on, I think, day 5 or maybe it's 6 now without much sleep. I'd say Jaden did better last night, but he was still up 5 or 6 times, or maybe it was 4? I was a walking zombie.

Today, I'm cleaning like nobody's business. When is the last time you cleaned behind your oven? I do the fridge periodically, but I skip the oven. It's harder to move and just a little scarier for me. I always feel like I'm going to trip something that will make my house explode, which is completely ridiculous because it's an electric oven, but still. I moved it and cleaned under it today. Nasty!! I have to do my best to get out as much pet hair and dander as possible.

Is it possible that an antibiotic can start working within 3 doses? He seems to be draining some of that infection already. Maybe it's the antihistamine he took last night? I don't know anything about this stuff. And yes, Miss Anti-Antibiotic has my son on one. In fact, he has to be on it for 20 days, plus she wrote it to be refilled too, as 20 days may not do the trick. Migc took one once and I always regretted it. Jaden's infection is BAD though! They (I don't remember if I wrote any of this yesterday, if I did, well, you get to read it again) took an x-ray of his nasal cavity. There are 2 cavities on the sides of your nose that are supposed to be white when x-rayed. You can see one side faintly and you cannot even tell where the other side is. Poor baby! He's already draining though. Is that possible?

Well, I'm off to get back to work. Please forgive me for whatever I wrote yesterday. Just remind yourself that I haven't slept in a few days!

What you wrote yesterday was fine and not crazy...actually, I may write a blog about my crazy naturalist lifestyle fantasies because of it. LOL. Jaden may grow out of those allergies...can your dog live outside? Good to hear he is doing better!

Yeah, much of mine is fantasy, yet it gets closer and closer to reality all of the time. My husband encourages that part of me, which is awesome! If I were who I really wanted to be right now, I'd have dreads, tattoes, knit like crazy and produce as much of my own food as possible without any steriods. I would use minimal waste, have a house full of foster kids and regularly serve the homeless. Oh, don't forget, I'd be helping babies come into this world 100% naturally too. :)

Oh, writing that makes me realize how close I really am not to who I want to be. :(

And as for Josie, she is outside right now, but Justin says that if we can't get her back into the house, he will get rid of her because it breaks his heart to see her outside. She is a golden retriever, so she's big & really does belong outside but he is one of those tried & true animal lovers that thinks putting her outside is torture. None of this is going well for him right now. I hope that he will change his mind as the kids have grown so attached to her and it will be hard to find someone else willing to keep her inside.
