I’m a little antsy/flustered/discombobulated/out-of-my-groove today as my 8yo is having a medical test tomorrow. He is on a liquid diet today, which is hard since he’s officially entered the hollow-leg phase of life lately.
Thankfully, he’s a pretty happy-go-lucky kid and thinks it’s cool that I picked him up for lunch and took him to Sonic for a slush as his lunch. I couldn’t bear the thought of him having to see/smell food at lunch time or explain to his friends why he couldn’t eat anything. I’m praying that no one in his class has a birthday today and brings cupcakes. It’s hard to send your boy out into the world and just have faith that he won’t accidentally eat something before he thinks about it. Who knew that growing up was harder on the mom than the kid?
Anyway, so what have I done today?
Cleaned bathrooms. Not in the down-and-dirty mode, but I did thoroughly wipe down and disinfect them. (It’s Tuesday, so what choice do I really have?)
Still need to do a general pickup, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be motivated since my mom (Hi, Mom!) is coming to spend the night and take care of the other two while we’re at the hospital tomorrow.
I’m more than a little irritated at myself that there is a rather large item sitting in the middle of the office floor with the purpose of reminding me to start its totally-ready-to-go auction on ebay. The last two nights, it has completely slipped my mind. Grrrrr.
